Scott Stornetta
Blockchain Pioneer (1991 – Present)
Chief Scientist at Yugen Partners (2018-Present)

Mr. Stornetta is one of the founding fathers of blockchain technology. He co-authored a scholarly work with the first mention of a blockchain architecture in a 1991 publication. Satoshi Nakamoto’s whitepaper, “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System,” cited Stornetta’s work three times out of the eight references. The famous industry-defining white paper was essentially built on Stornetta’s concepts about disrupting the fintech industry, as he has thought about blockchain technology for the last thirty years. Today Mr. Stornetta is the Senior Scientist at Yugen Partners, a private equity firm investing in companies leveraging blockchain technology. His institutional-quality approach ties together his blockchain-driven investment ideas, coupled with his seasoned investment process.
