Company goals and history

Why was CasperLabs founded? And can you give us a brief rundown on what CasperLabs is trying to accomplish?

We founded CasperLabs because we believe that a decentralized pure PoS protocol based on the Casper research is possible. We also believed that a blockchain built for business is what the space needs for adoption. Without a decentralized permissionless blockchain as an option for business, we fear that private, permissioned blockchains will thrive. Scaling is a real problem, and we felt that the opportunity to solve that problem using Casper is a big opportunity.
