Ahmed Attia

Crypto derivatives trading has historically been shrouded in opacity, a factor that undermines both consumer trust and the industry's potential growth.

Ahmed founded Synquote to make crypto options the first financial primitive to reach mass adoption through a transparent, on-chain venue. Synquote was built from first principles with decentralization in mind, with a novel RFQ (Request for Quote) architecture which does not require users to compromise pricing or liquidity in exchange for transparency.

Synquote has processed hundreds of millions in notional volume and is on track to grow the crypto options sector by orders of magnitude.

Before starting Synquote, Ahmed spent time as an engineer at Google and helped build one of the first decentralized exchanges in the world as an undergraduate at Stanford.
