The Quiet Exile of Gavin Andresen, Bitcoin’s Former Face
You could almost see a baffled ‘WTF’ come across Eric Lombrozo’s face as he watched Gavin Andresen at CoinDesk’s Consensus 2016 conference.
Andresen as the face – at least the unmasked face – of bitcoin became a minor celebrity.
As the lead maintainer for the project, Andresen played a key role in facilitating this work in bitcoin’s early days.
In a follow-up email, Andresen did offer some confirmation on the blockchain-focused jobs he was last known to be working.
This stealth project people referenced might be the Random Sanity Project Andresen tweeted about at the beginning of this month.
