Chronicle Labs


Founder of Chronicle Labs, the developers of Chronicle Protocol, Niklas began his crypto journey at IBM Research, where he worked on the Hyperledger blockchain and early supply chain finance applications.

In 2016, he joined the founding team of MakerDAO to create DAI, Ethereum’s leading decentralized stablecoin. This is where he co-developed the first ever Oracle on Ethereum. Niklas is also responsible for creating DSProxy, an industry-standard account abstraction primitive; OasisDEX, the first decentralized exchange on Ethereum with an order matching engine; as well as Chronicle Oracle protocol, which secures over $10B of assets locked in MakerDAO, Spark Protocol, and others.
