Ryan Medlin is a seasoned Silicon Valley entrepreneur and technologist.

His most recent exit was the sale of his proximity tracking and measurement company in 2015 to Neustar where he then led a team of engineers to build out Neustar's IoT Identity  initiatives. This included a product for IoT which was an improvement over normal PKI providing cryptography based policy enforcement and Identity Management in a highly decentralized architecture.

As part of this responsibility for the past 2 years,  many Blockchain and DLT based prototypes and concepts were given a lot of resources for prototype assessments. Platforms and protocols included: IoTA, Ethereum, Hyperledger, Rootstock, Lisk, NEO and many lower level protocols including things such as Telehash and Cothority.
