Mathematician and dynamical systems expert, Prof. Craig Calcaterra, and Prof. Wulf Kaal, a  law and economics scholar, collaborated and developed the proof of reputation (PoR) consensus and currency stability mechanism as core protocol layers over the course of three years of academic research. These protocols form the foundation for the Semada Research Institute (SRI). SRI creates and implements research agendas that focus on building Semada’s distributed ledger core and corresponding economic infrastructure.
