Trainer 1

Edward Ruchevits is an eternal student, self-learner, open-minded developer and an open source enthusiast, who is particularly interested in FinTech, cryptocurrencies and decentralization in all its exposures. He is currently working as a lead developer at a blockchain platform which automates invoicing, invoice factoring and payments. The current stack includes private Ethereum network, NodeJS application which serves as a middleware between the blockchain and the end user and various integrations with third-party ERP systems and payment providers. 


Trainer 2 

Thomas Bertani is a long time blockchain expert. His career started with important contributions in the fields of high performance computing. Today he works mainly on Bitcoin and Ethereum as an entrepreneur and consultant. In August 2013 he started Bitboat, which today is among the leading 'cash to bitcoin' marketplaces in Europe. In the last 4 years his experimentations in this industry ranged from the managing of "Virtual Companies" listed on a Bitcoin Equity Crowdfunding Exchange to the incorporation of Oraclize srl (the 1st company in Italy and 2nd in Europe incorporated with Bitcoin as capital contribution). After his work at
Cointerra in designing high performance bitcoin miners and managing 5% of the global Bitcoin hashrate, his focus is now in providing reliable infrastructure layers for smart contracts via the Oraclize oracle solution.

Thomas has worked on a range of projects from web development (fullstack) to low level applications on embedded systems, scientific applications on GPUs via OpenCL/CUDA, GSM packet low level sniffing apps (osmocom), kernel-level coding to implement multithreading support on microcontrollers and much
more. He moved to bitcoin in 2012 and worked on things ranging from drivers for ASIC miners, hardware wallet firmware code, fullstack bitcoin marketplace (, architecture to manage thousands of
bitcoin miners, "state of art" oracle systems for Ethereum (Oraclize) and many DApps/smartcontracts.
