My name is Bastian, and I joined Centrifuge in August this year (2022). I joined as a Protocol/Runtime engineer, working with Substrate and making sure our transactions and runtime operate fast, secure and are pleasant to use.
I got in touch with Crypto around 2015, and worked in the industry for the first time when I joined Kraken around 2019. This was also my first time working full time in Rust. I loved it so much that I wrote a book (“Rust Web Development” (Manning)) and started a MeetUp in Berlin called “Rust&Tell”.
Thinking through a product end-to-end is what I love most, therefore Centrifuge is a perfect fit for me personally, where I can focus on building real products on top of the blockchain layer, and help equalise the access to financial products for many. Centrifuge is perfectly placed to play a major role in that future, and I couldn’t be more pleased being part of this smart and energetic team.
