About Jay Jog
Jay is the co-founder of Sei, the first sector specific L1 blockchain, specialized for trading. He was previously an engineering lead at Robinhood, where he saw the company 10x in employee count and go through major milestones such as the IPO. In 2021, he started building a decentralized Robinhood with his friend, eventually leading to the formation of Sei.
Sei serves as the infrastructure for the future financial system to support capital markets, starting with exchanges. As the first Layer 1 specialized for trading, Sei is the fastest chain to finality, optimizing every layer of the stack to give exchanges an unfair advantage. Exchanges are the killer app of crypto, but current Layer 1s hold them back. Most L1s fall into two extremes, general-purpose and app-specific. Sei unlocks a new design space in between as a sector-specific L1.
There are currently 100+ teams from Solana, Polkadot, Terra, and NEAR building on top of Sei going into mainnet. The team is backed by Multicoin, Delphi, Tangent, and several MMs like Hudson River Trading, and GSR.
