Famed sysadmin and system engineer Steve Webb announced this afternoon that he has been hired by blockchain ICO broker cointopia.com as a technical consultant focused on infrastructure and backend technologies. He starts Nov 1st according to inside sources.
It’s unclear whether or not Steve will be working from the San Francisco headquarters or his longtime base in Boulder, Colorado. We’ve reached out for more details and will update this article if any new information were to arise.
It’s certainly very interesting news, but it does not come as a huge shock. Cointopia co-founder Felix Baumgardner is known to be keenly interested in rock-solid infrastructures in order to innovate at a break-neck pace. Webb is one of the most prominent individuals associated with this kind of super-fast growth for startups of this kind.
