Details

Kicking off the first of this year's monthly events, hosted by our friends at Monzo, we're delighted to welcome long-time Bitcoin Core Developer, Matt Corallo (aka Blue Matt) and Jeremy Welch, CEO of the Key Management platform, Casa, to Coinscrum for a fireside chat and to give us the lowdown on the core development team's current work and roadmap and the current state of private key management and its future outlook.

//About Matt
Matt is an active contributor to Bitcoin Core, as well as the creator and maintainer of the Fast Internet Bitcoin Relay Engine (FIBRE), a protocol and implementation designed to relay blocks around the globe at the speed of light.

Matt currently works for Chain Code Labs, contributing to Bitcoin Core and other open-source Bitcoin projects full-time.

//About Jeremy
Jeremy has worked at three high-growth startups (two acquired, one still growing), one megacorp (Google), and cofounded and operated three companies.

//About Casa
One of the greatest promises of blockchains is the ability to give people back control of their own money - to "be their own bank". However, individuals today don't have the necessary tools to shoulder the responsibility that comes with the promise of fully owning their money.

The largest barrier to adoption of cryptocurrency is the ability for people to feel safe using it, and Casa are tackling that problem head-on.

Casa are developing secure personal key management systems that help users keep your cryptocurrency and cryptoassets safe. They're at the forefront of security and UX for private keys and striving to give people the tools for securing their digital lives.
