Meet Luxor's Co-founder and CTO, Eddie Wang

Meet Luxor's Co-founder and CTO, Eddie Wang, Luxor

The path taken by Eddie Wang to be at the forefront of blockchain technology has to be one of the most unlikely. From a budding classical pianist to an amateur hacker, Eddie has worn a range of different hats on his way to being a co-founder and CTO of cryptocurrency mining company Luxor Technologies.

Growing up in Toronto, Eddie had always thought he would grow up to be a pianist. He played piano for a decade and attended Unionville School for the Arts, where he was valedictorian. However, at the age of 13, his other hobby, technology, started to take over.

Eddie is a self-taught coder, or what he calls a “script-kiddie”. His first break into the startup-scene came when he discovered a glitch on a teen social networking site, Lockerz.

“I decided to email their CEO about it,” he says. “It turned into my first internship because they offered me an advisory role to work with their team. It was a really cool experience, and it gave me the startup bug. It made me realize I can use my skills to create, and I could build companies rather than just trying to do random things like hack websites.”

From there, Shad Valley, a summer STEM program, at the University of British Columbia nurtured Eddie’s interest in tech even further. He went on to earn a Commerce degree from Queen’s University and complete a range of internships in startups, as well as larger companies such as OMERS and Scotiabank. However, it was the varied roles and excitement of working in startups that he really enjoyed.

“The big difference is the big companies specialize you right away,” he says. “My experiences at startups were much more valuable because I got a feel for dealing with those unknowns and gained the mental fortitude to really jump in and do things yourself.”

While working at Scotiabank, he found himself working as an intern sitting beside the bank's blockchain team. In a few weeks, he found himself diving into the rabbit hole of blockchain as well. He came across an interesting D-app (decentralized application) codebase on Github and decided to reach out to the developer via Reddit. That developer was Nick Hansen, who was soon to become his co-founder at Luxor.

“I was like, dude, you have some really interesting code. I think we can do something together here,” he says. “So we started collaborating. Essentially, the company was spawned from a curiosity in learning more about blockchain. We’ve made a lot of mistakes but overall it's been a pretty wonderful ride.”

The company is focused on productizing its data technology in the field of compute power to connect electricity producers to communities all over the world. Eddie also sees opportunities in commoditizing video rendering and AI. That presents an obvious technological challenge, but the other major factor is finding the people who can deliver it.

“We're looking for quick-learners, passionate blockchain enthusiasts, and high-impact contributors to join our team,” Eddie says. “Talent is something that's going to stay critically important as we grow Luxor, and it’s really hard to get right.
