15-Year-Old ‘Bitcoin Prodigy’ Want to Make Ethereum Easier
One reason for the attention is that after school and on weekends, Jackson works on cryptocurrency projects.
He’s currently the CTO of Etherparty, a platform that aims to make issuing smart contracts on Ethereum easier for developers, and serves as a summer intern at blockchain-based currencies trading platform Tether.
Jackson said he was inspired to begin work on Ethereum, the decentralized app development platform invented by another young wunderkind, 21-year-old Vitalik Buterin, shortly after reading the white paper.
At the request of Etherparty CEO Lisa Chang, a friend and colleague, Jackson joined Etherparty earlier this year.
“The idea of Etherparty is to make Ethereum development a lot easier,” Jackson explained.
