With the explosive growth of the cryptocurrency industry in the past five years, tech-savvy professionals are seeking business opportunities in this industry in the form of entrepreneurship.

Founder of cryptocurrency startup Ava Labs Prof. Emin Gün Sirer, computer science, is one person taking advantage of the burgeoning industry, raising over $60 million in venture capital funding in less than two years.

Sirer started Ava Labs in 2018 with the help of two Cornell graduate students, Kevin Sekniqi ’20 and Maofan Yin ’21. According to the company’s leaders, the team’s success has relied on its unique “consensus protocol” — the technology that underlies the transactions of cryptocurrency and ensures its legitimacy.
