KC Reddy is the Founder and Chief Architect of Rubix, a green, secure L1 blockchain built on a revolutionary Proof-of-Pledge protocol, which he invented.
KC Reddy’s career has been built on marrying cutting-edge technology with ethics, leveraging today’s innovations to solve tomorrow’s problems – all while protecting the integrity and privacy of the end user. As an expert in both cyber security and investment, he set out to create a green, secure blockchain with boundless real-world applications and use cases. Since 2017, KC has been perfecting and refining that formula with Rubix, an L1 blockchain built on a revolutionary Proof-of-Pledge protocol, a low-carbon consensus mechanism that he created.
Proof-of-Pledge, KC’s brainchild and the foundation for Rubix’s green blockchain system, was born out of a desire to address both the shortcomings of existing cryptocurrencies and the most pressing issues facing humanity: primarily climate change and income inequality. Leveraging deep understandings and working knowledge of both the technology and investment sectors, KC combined the best parts of existing blockchain protocols to engineer Proof-of-Pledge, a unique protocol that allows each transaction to achieve finality without expensive and energy-intensive mining. Rather than focusing on the token alone, KC designed Rubix as a comprehensive Web3 and blockchain platform with applications in ESG tracking, publishing, transactions, and cybersecurity, to name a few.
In addition to spearheading Rubix, KC founded Ensurity Technologies, a cutting-edge global cyber security platform specializing in cryptography solutions. KC is also a renowned investor in global technology, with portfolios at various funds including Barings, ABN Amro, Nevsky Capital, Charlemagne Capital & Credit Agricole.
KC graduated from Osmania University, India, with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science Engineering. He earned his MBA at the Indian Institute of Management, Kolkata.
