Rares, the co-founder and CTO of Foton, has a background in web development, programming, and blockchain technology. His passion for technology and learning contributed to the development of Foton, an NFT marketplace on the Radix Network.
Vlad, the co-founder and CEO of Foton, has a strong background in mathematics, physics, and design. His diverse experiences and problem-solving skills have been instrumental in shaping Foton into a comprehensive platform in the NFT marketplace.
Foton traces its origins to Ideomaker, an end-to-end supply chain platform. The decision to create a separate platform specifically for digital assets emerged towards the end of 2021. Identifying pain points in the NFT industry and recognizing the opportunity to address these issues, Vlad and his team decided to develop Foton.
The choice to build Foton on Radix was influenced by the Radix team's vision, determination, and ability to address the Trilemma and create a scalable, modern, decentralized form of money. Building Foton on Radix allows for a more efficient development cycle without the complexities often associated with the crypto industry, enabling Foton to focus on providing utility to its users through a comprehensive set of tools and an improved experience.
