CTO and Cofounder, ZEBEDEE, inc.
André has quickly become one of the most visible leaders in the Bitcoin Lightning space, both as the co-founder and CTO of ZEBEDEE and a major contributor to open source projects. ZEBEDEE is already transforming the gaming industry by letting game makers play with instant global payments in ways that feel native to the game, fun to users and drive massive business results. Now, led by André’s vision for the platform, ZEBEDEE is beginning to punch beyond gaming into a diverse set of industries, making the full power of Bitcoin Lightning easily accessible to any tech company. This is what André has been building on top of Bitcoin. But he has also created an impressive resume of building for Bitcoin itself, as an early champion and contributor to LNURL, creator of the Lightning Address protocol, one of the leaders of BitDevs LA, founder of Vinteum - a Brazilian non-profit for Bitcoin development, and one of the creators and most instrumental early supporters of NOSTR.
