“Sjors is an established and seasoned contributor to Bitcoin in a variety of areas. He is one of the most prolific reviewers of contributions to Bitcoin Core, he has written a Jack Dorsey endorsed book “Bitcoin: A Work in Progress”, he produces the brilliant “VAN WIRDUM SJORSNADO (a.k.a. Bitcoin, Explained)” show and maintains ForkMonitor.info.”“I really appreciate being able to continue to work on Bitcoin Core, both by contributing my own code as well as by helping to move other exciting projects forward through review and testing – which is always a bottleneck. Thanks once again to BitMEX for supporting this in a very hands-off manner, which allows me to remain as independent as possible in my contributions,” Sjors Provoost said.Besides Sjors Provoost, BitMEX also funds developers Rene Pickhardt, who is focusing on the Lightning Network, and Chris Coverdale, who is focusing on StratumV2.
