Anton Bukov is the co-founder of the 1inch Network, a distributed network of decentralized protocols that enable the fastest, most lucrative and protected operations in major blockchain ecosystems.
He studied cryptography at university and subsequently worked as a C++ developer and later as an iOS developer.
After getting interested in smart contracts in 2017, Anton contributed to several crypto projects, including MultiToken, the NEAR protocol, where he was involved in the ETH-NEAR Rainbow Bridge, and the Synthetix derivatives liquidity protocol, working on gas optimization of the smart contracts.
For a while, Anton co-hosted a YouTube show, CryptoManiacs, with Sergej Kunz, the 1inch Network’s eventual co-founder.
At a May 2019 hackathon in New York City, over the course of 36 hours, Anton and Sergej developed a prototype crypto exchange aggregator that became the basis of the 1inch Network.
