ABOUT YAN PRITZKER
I've been a developer and startup co-founder for the last twenty years, with experience in all aspects of software development and early startup strategy.
In 2012 I joined David Kalt as the co-founding CTO at Reverb.com, a business we grew to over 130 employees, close to half a billion dollars in annual sales, and to the top 300 websites by traffic according to Alexa.
In 2016, I became deeply interested in Bitcoin and spent hours every day listening to podcasts, watching videos, and reading technical and economic information. In 2017 I decided to depart from Reverb in order to pursue my passion of bringing Bitcoin to the world.
As the son of Soviet immigrants, I am more keenly aware than many Americans of the need for a censorship-resistant money that cannot be stolen from you by an authoritarian, currency-controlling regime. By promoting Bitcoin, I hope to avoid anyone ever being in the situation of the government taking their wealth ever again.
BITCOIN/CRYPTO - ASK ME ANYTHING
I have been studying Bitcoin deeply since 2016. Let me condense hundreds of hours of information into a dense hour packed with information for you.
Whether you need help figuring out what Bitcoin is all about, from the technical to the economic, let me help you figure out how Bitcoin fits into your business or personal investment thesis.
I'll help you with best practices including setup of hardware wallets, redundant and secure storage of secrets, and recommend additional resources.
CTO, INFRASTRUCTURE, TECHNICAL ADVISORY
As an expert in AWS and cloud infrastructure, I can help you build out automated infrastructure for your cloud project. I am especially interested in crypto-related projects.
I bring the best proven tools to your setup, from Docker to Terraform, to the AWS API. I'll work alongside your developers to educate them and help guide them in owning their own infrastructure.
I am also available as a consulting CTO, whether you need help formulating product strategy, hiring practices, technical architecture, customer service automation, or anything else you might need as an early stage startup, please let me know.
I am available for official advisory board positions compensated by equity.
