Teamwork makes the dream work

Burst is a revolution led by a team with unmatched dedication and talent.


A tumultuous history

Burst was created and launched by an anonymous but highly ambitious developer in August 2014. After a year, he disappeared without explanation, leaving the community to take over development and resources. The coin picked up some momentum in 2016 and 2017, but never truly received the attention and care it deserved.

In the summer of 2017, a development team called The PoC Consortium (PoCC) took over Burst technical leadership, and announced the Burst Dymaxion. Under their direction, Burst saw significant improvements from the core wallet, to pool and mining software, and even the POC2 protocol.

In early 2019, PoCC stepped down and a new group of community members emerged to carry the torch. The Burst Alliance, comprised of experienced software engineers and marketing experts, have committed to performing ongoing Burst development and marketing into the future.


This is not an exhaustive list. This is merely the main contributors who agreed to appear here; many other people are working on the Burst project. As a community effort, Burst is being improved by the entirety of its active members.
