- Kathleen Breitman is the public half of the husband-and wife team that founded Tezos, a proof-of-stake-based blockchain designed as a smart contracts platform similar to Ethereum, but designed to resolve what its designers saw as several weaknesses in ETH’s governance and technology.
The outspoken Breitman was among those vilified after XTZ became one of the richest (at $232 million) and most controversial initial coin offering after a feud between the founders and Tezos Foundation chair led to a long standoff in which lawsuits were launched and the future of the of the blockchain project was in serious doubt. With development funded by the Breitmans during Tezos’ long standoff, its mainnet went live in June 2018 and the project appears to be on a sound footing.
