Derek Alia, CEO & Co-Founder at Futureswap, is a full-stack engineer and entrepreneur with a passion for paradigm-shifting technologies. Derek received his degree in Computer Science from the University of Washington, and attended a software engineering program from Hack Reactor, one of the top coding boot camps focused on building autonomous software engineers. Before co-founding Futureswap, Derek worked on frontend development at an early DAO creation company that provides a suite of applications and services to enable new forms of global communities. His early experience in decentralized governance, DAOS, and blockchain technology would set the foundation for his subsequent co-founding of Tribes– a decentralized content platform– before assimilating these concepts to decentralized finance with Futureswap. Derek brings his immense knowledge of programming, decentralized governance, and DAOs to the DeFi derivatives world.
