The team behind PATH Network is different as they are striving to be as compliant as possible. The team is led by an ex-FBI agent who has served as a cybersecurity and governance consultant to numerous firms during his role with Kroll and PWC.

How did you choose your team?
A: On 0-day, or the very 1st day of work at Path, founding members made it clear that Path wouldn’t be just any team. It would be a dream team! That is exactly what Path is now, 6 months after its January 2018 launch, we have brought on a diverse line up of some very talented individuals, including former hackers now turned cybersecurity professionals, & an ex-FBI agent who used to chase hackers as our CEO, amongst many others.

PATH: This project is sophisticated on many levels. Path Network redefines internet intelligence with unparalleled visibility into connectivity by applying blockchain technology to immediately serve a core business need of mid-market internet service providers (ISPs) and cloud service providers (CSPs) as well as internet-powered companies. Path Network’s decentralized approach offers better network insights at a lower cost. This unique paradigm gives Path Network a competitive edge previously unseen in this space, raising quality while reducing overhead.
Q Brav.org: How can PATH get people to volunteer to become node; why will people sign up to do this?
PATH: The premise of Path Network is simple: use commodity electronics already located around the world to monitor the health of the internet. This is incentivized through the reward of “PATH” tokens to miners that choose to participate by running our software on their devices at home. In return, our customers have their own networks and online services monitored by this array of devices.
Q Brav.org Q: How did you decide what technology to use to build this platform…tell the bigger story of how you came to be
PATH: As our motto goes, we plan to redefine internet visibility through blockchain. Path aims to be the world’s first truly decentralized data monitoring network, and will have a first mover and network effect advantage over future companies whom will inevitably see the benefits to blockchain protocol in the network monitoring space.
Brav.org Q: How receptive will the users be to this new approach?
PATH: We have already received a massive amount of complimentary reviews on the project.
The Path team has developed a number of clients to ensure that the Path Network mining application can operate on a multitude of platforms. At the heart of the Path Network agent is a simple core, extended to perform network-related tasks associated with monitoring jobs issued by our customers. In return, they receive PATH tokens by using our mining application on any given device.

PATH: Innovation. We will always strive to provide top-grade technology and service to our customers.
Brav.org Q: Building all this technology can be intense in the trenches, how do you handle conflict resolution within your development team?

Q Brav.org Q: What kind of impact do you think your product will have on the debate on net neutrality?
PATH: As traditional network monitoring remains an industry ripe for disruption, the core of Path Network’s functionality lies in our ability to incorporate the strengths of a centralized platform backed by a decentralized and globally distributed network of monitoring agents.
Q Brav.org Q: In your early days, did you ever pretend that conflict didn’t exist rather than attempt to address the underlying issues?
PATH: In my early days, if there was a conflict, my team and I would always address it, with full transparency until a solution was made. Each lesson learned came with a blessing, as our foundation strengthened, throughout all the hardships and issues we have faced since the very beginning. The firm discipline and team chemistry demonstrated by Path played a significant role in the uprising of Path Network.
