Ren Protocol

In 2017, he co-founded (formerly known as Republic Protocol) alongside and worked there as a CTO. Ren is an open protocol that facilitates the permissionless and private transfer of value between any .[5] Ren's core product, RenVM, brings interoperability to through a decentralized custody solution that allows the movement of assets between blockchains. [10]

Wang was introduced into the blockchain space when he was asked by to work together on . [11]

"I did a lot of research at Australia National University around decentralized systems. I collaborated with Cray, a supercomputing company, and helped them with their supercomputing language Chapel and then I went on to do my honors thesis in the same area and built my own language which specialized in systems.
I'd worked together with Tai. for several years and so when he came to me with the idea of working in blockchain and decentralized space there was no way I was gonna turn that down" - Wang recalls his journey into blockchain & Ren in an interview[11]

In January 2019, Ren participated in the release of the  introducing . The paper introduced the notion of "wrapped" tokens, utilizing   token standard. [12]
