My name is Orest. I’m an old-school-ish computer scientist currently in crypto and ideating towards co-founding a new startup.

  • Running zkWarsaw. zkWarsaw is a Warsaw community around zero-knowledge proofs organising lectures and workshops for researchers, hackers, and builders.

  • Worked as engineer at Scroll. Scroll is building a bytecode-level zkEVM (zero-knowledge-proof-based rollup with EVM compatibility) to scale the Ethereum blockchain.

  • Co-founded Cara Care. Cara empowers individuals suffering from chronic digestive diseases to live a better life.

  • Co-founded Knit. Knit’s app lets you tighten your organisation through video-based networking events.

  • Occasionally manages Dessert Ventures. Dessert Ventures provides freelance tech consulting and product development services.

I’m also into good (drip!) coffee, ski touring, horse-riding, motorcycling, and blues and balfolk dance.
