The RChain Cooperative was formed in January 2017 to steward the development and progression of the RChain platform. The cooperative provides the foundational support necessary for RChain to grow into, and remain, a publicly owned and operated information utility. RChain Co-op members invigorate the ecosystem with constant experimentation of governance models, empowering individual agency within a collective.
Lucius Gregory (Greg) Meredith is the president of the RChain Cooperative. Greg is a mathematician, and the discoverer of the rho-calculus, a co-inventor of the LADL algorithm, and the inventor of the ToGL approach to graph theory.
