Burak started in Bitcoin in 2017, exploring and building around mining, payments, wallets, developer tools and most recently, Bitcoin-style smart contracts. Burak is currently working on Bitmatrix, a trustless exchange protocol on the Liquid Network that allows direct asset swaps without giving up the custody of funds.
