About PegaSys:

The Protocol Engineering Group (PegaSys) team within ConsenSys creates and contributes to the software which operates Ethereum networks from the public chain to enterprise ecosystems. PegaSys is on a mission to enable the decentralized future by building a next-generation enterprise-grade blockchain platform.

We are set to grow the ecosystem around blockchain and technologies through products that drive enterprise adoption of blockchains. This work spans all layers of the (Enterprise) Ethereum protocol stack: block processing, networking, storage, and cryptography. Some of the challenges we have been focusing on include security, scalability, performance and robustness.

Our path to success lies in interactions and open source contributions coming from our engagement with ConsenSys Enterprise, academic, EEA, and Ethereum Foundation communities. Some of our notable engagements include our work in Dubai as City Blockchain Advisor, Swarm storage community, and EEA vision. Current ground-level activities revolve around re-architecture of blockchain clients like Geth and Quorum into modular, pluggable, and service-oriented components.
