Kaspa is based on the GHOSTDAG protocol, which is a generalization of Bitcoin Consensus. It’s aiming to be the fastest and purest proof-of-work consensus engine.

The project’s founder, Yonatan Sompolinsky, is a computer postdoc affiliated with Harvard’s MEV research team, and his 2013 paper on the Ghost protocol is even cited in the Ethereum white paper. The dedicated team of core developers and contributors includes individuals like Shai Wyborski, a cryptography Ph.D. student, Michael Sutton, a computer science expert, Mike Zak, pursuing undergraduate studies in computer science, cryptography researcher Elichai Turkel, and developer Ori Newman. These individuals have made significant contributions to the network’s development and overall stability.
