Ryon S. is a Decentralized Finance security professional working on protecting users and protocols of the Celo blockchain. Ryon has a deep passion for, and practical experience, in blockchain forensics due to his extreme involvement in the DeFi space (DAOs, Protocol advisory, Investing, etc).
Ryon started his professional career at a security consultancy firm providing security compliance auditing services for various Fortune 500 companies. Prior to this, he obtained a degree in information security from Cal Poly Pomona.
At a young age Ryon was inseparable from his computer screen, and grew up both in the physical and virtual world. Ryon was introduced to hacking and offensive security in his teenage years through online communities. Eventually, having a close-eye to this industry led to his discovery of Bitcoin in 2013. After seeing the injustices and malicious behavior perpetrated by crypto-anarchists, he became enamored with defending the less fortunate and made a personal commitment to bring light where there is endless darkness.
Ryon is extremely passionate about providing resources for education to anyone with a desire to learn more about blockchain security and how to snuff out danger in a virtual world becoming inundated by malice. His hope is to spark interest in security to the world of “degens.”
