About the Speaker
Stuart Haber holds both M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees from Columbia University. As a Research Scientist at Bellcore in the early ’90’s, Haber met his long-time collaborator, W. Scott Stornetta, with whom he released a series of publications that laid much of the groundwork for the emergence of blockchain technology. The pair co-founded Surety in 1984, a spinoff of Bellcore that provided digital time-stamping services in what is today considered to be the first commercial blockchain service provider. In 2017, Haber founded Stuart Haber Crypto, LLC, a firm which provides consultancy services in cryptography and blockchain technology. He has been a speaker at TEDxBeaconStreet, and his work’s impact on blockchain and cryptocurrency has been cited in the Wall Street Journal, BlockTelegraph, BreakerMag, and other publications.
