Paul Rieger, the newest renowned advisor to join Pantos, ​is​​ ​an internationally-known promoter and educator on ​​blockchain​ ​technology.​ ​He is​ ​an​ ​advocate​ ​of​ ​the​ ​NEM​ ​blockchain​ ​and joined NEM Europe in November 2017.​ ​Rieger​ ​is​ ​combining​ ​his​ ​software​ ​engineering background​ ​with​ ​his​ ​entrepreneurial​ ​experience to not only educate others, but​ ​to​ ​design​ ​and develop​ ​blockchain-based​ ​solutions​ ​and​ ​prototypes​ ​for​ ​the private​ ​and​ ​public​ ​sector.

The Pantos project is already being supported and advised by some of the most respected projects and people in the global blockchain space. Among them are Andreas Petersson, co-founder of Bitcoin Austria and Minebox and the former architect of the Mycelium Android Wallet; Michael Borkowski and Stefan Schulte from Vienna University of Technology; Ralph Pichler, Ethereum veteran, smart contracts expert and co-founder of Research Institute for Future Cryptoeconomics (RIAT); JL777 of Komodo, Max Kordek of Lisk, and Sasha Ivanov of Waves.

Pantos’ goal is to enable seamless cross-chain token transfers between multiple blockchains. Bitpanda has conceived and initiated the open source research project Pantos, together with scientists of the Technical University Vienna, the Academy of Sciences, and RIAT. Pantos will be financed by a Technology ICO, which will be capped at 1,500 BTC to ensure the development of open source technology, which will prospectively act as a key technology for a token-based environment — the Token Atomic Swap Technology (TAST).
