Patrick Nosker (@pnosker) started mining Bitcoin in late 2009 and then went on to mine Litecoin, Dogecoin, and BlackCoin. Fed up with stagnant development, he decided to team up with Doug and David to create VeriCoin. He studied Molecular Biology and Biochemistry as an undergraduate at Rutgers University and received high honors. He is currently pursuing a dual PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology as well as Computational Biology and Molecular Biophysics. He also runs a technology website, www.pnosker.com. Pat holds 3 US patents and is co-inventor of five more including one on influenza therapeutics along with Doug Pike.

Douglas Pike

Douglas Pike (@effectsToCause) was introduced to cryptocurrency by Pat Nosker. Since then he has passionately researched BitCoin and AltCoins.

As an undergraduate at Richard Stockton College, he studied Biology and is currently pursuing a PhD at Rutgers University in Biomedical Engineering. His Computational Biophysics work includes being the lead developer of a novel protein design software library, as well as an author of numerous scientific publications. In addition to VeriCoin, Doug and Pat are co-inventors of a process to discover influenza therapeutics.

David Boehm

David Boehm (@VeriCoinDev3) entered the cryptoworld with Dogecoin. David attended Rutgers University with Pat and received his undergraduate and Master's degree in Computer Science with highest honors. As a recipient of the prestigious SMART scholarship, David worked for the US Department of Defense for the US Army Corps of Engineers as a software developer. David currently works for a small software company in Washington as a Sofware Development Engineer for a cloud computing group.

Steve Woods

Steve Woods (@OnsightIT) was introduced to cryptocurrency in late 2013. Starting out as a bitcoin miner, he soon discovered the world of crypto-trading and began researching the markets and various alt-coins. having come across VeriCoin in its early stages, he was excited to see a coin that was focused on usability, and with a development team that was not shrouded in anonymity. Looking for a place to help-out, he began tinkering with the code, and one thing led to another. Steve has over 30 years of programming experience, 23 of them with a Fortune 100 company as a Systems Engineer and Infrastructure Specialist. In addition to VeriCoin, Steve is an avid rock climber and has travelled the world looking for the most aesthetic lines to climb.
