Hiroki, a.k.a “Boko”, is the developer of the new consensus algorithm, Proof of Rounds. He began self-learning programming when he was 12 years old. As a middle school student, he programmed and built robots, winning prizes in multiple national robot competitions. He then studied robotics at a technology school, where he first noticed the hardware-related limitations of his field of studies, changed his focus to software and database development and soon become an expert on parallel processing.
After graduation, Boko started his career as freelancer, developing databases for large automobile companies, and also constructing business tools and P2P networks for enterprises across the region of Japan.
As Bitcoin began to gain attention, Boko instantly realized the similarities and compatibilities of blockchain technology in his field of expertise. As a well-known engineer, Boko suddenly began receiving requests to build blockchain algorithms. Although he had already began to create PoR, he declined these invitations as he did not visualize them matching the potential of his disruptive algorithm. That was, of course, until he met Satoshi, who enlightened Boko with the idea of unlimited potential, now BEXAM.
