Perry Woodin has been designing and developing web applications since 1995 and first entered the cryptocurrency scene in late 2012. With an ever expanding interest in the economics of trustless systems, Perry started evaluating the numerous cryptocurrencies being released into the marketplace and decided to invest in Dash and become a Foundation member. In January 2015, Perry teamed up with Sean Ryan to lay the foundation for starting Node40 as a way to automate incentivized infrastructure services and provide financial insight for customers. Prior to Node40, Perry accumulated over 20 years experience developing and managing web-based applications. He worked as a consultant and was responsible for the development and management of customized metrics for business applications, including running one of the first web-based applications (GalleryDriver) that allowed high-end art galleries to manage their online presence. GalleryDriver was the go-to data management application for many galleries in New York City for 12 years.
