Sergey Nazarov is best known as the Co-Founder of Chainlink Labs, the industry-standard Web3 services platform used by global enterprises and leading Web3 projects at the forefront of the blockchain industry. He is a smart contract developer and programmer recognized for his contributions to the development of smart contract technology and decentralized oracle services. Since joining the crypto movement in 2011, he has become a prominent figure in the blockchain and crypto space and a thought leader in the DeFi community. He features on almost every list of people who could be Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin’s inventor. He is also the Co-Founder of SmartContract, a leading provider of secure and reliable open-source oracle solutions. In addition, he has worked with major banks, insurance companies, and large technology firms on the creation of externally connected smart contracts.
Since starting to develop Chainlink, Nazarov’s career in the blockchain industry skyrocketed.
Both 2019 and 2020 marked the years of partnerships and integrations between Nazarov’s creation and other cryptocurrency platforms.
For a large part of the crypto community, Nazarov serves the role of a ‘meme icon,’ partly due to his success in developing a functional interoperable ecosystem for transferring data between on-chain and off-chain systems via smart contracts.
Evidence suggests that Sergey could have had links to Satoshi through the smartcontract.com domain, which was transferred just 6 days before the Bitcoin Whitepaper was released in 2008.
He had a six-month stint at Firstmark, responsible for due diligence on tech startups and building peer-to-peer marketplaces.
