blockr.io is a bitcoin and altcoin blockchain explorer that caught the eye of Coinbase earlier in the year.
So much in fact that Coinbase has acquired the company and brought the two primary developers behind the project on-board as full-time staff at Coinbase.
Developer Sašo Matejina and designer Samo Drole will be joining the Coinbase team. The pair recently moved from Slovenia to join the staff of 40 full-time employees San Francisco. Saso and Samo will be focused on continuing to make the Coinbase API even more powerful for developers who want to build on top of bitcoin. They’ll also work on building out Coinbase’s own bitcoin node.
Blockr.io will continue to operate as usual for now as Sašo and Samo transition to their work at Coinbase.
Sašo is a co-founder of Blockr.io blockchain explorer. Before joining Coinbase, he worked on automated functional and regression testing for banking software and developed news publishing platforms for Slovenian media. He is a cryptocurrency enthusiast and enjoys building products that makes your life easier.
Samo is digital coin enthusiast, who founded Blockr.io blockchain explorer and worked as a freelance designer prior joining Coinbase. He is passionate about biking and cartoons.
