We are pleased to welcome Yotam Katznelson as Chief Technology Officer. With our continued rapid growth, Backed needed someone who could bring a wealth of fintech, blockchain and leadership experience to the role.
Yotam has spent the last thirteen years in tech, with seven years in financial engineering, tech leadership, and bringing traditional finance and blockchain tech together. He was the first engineer at Trade Republic, VP R&D at Securitize, and joins us from 21Shares, where he spent three and a half years, starting as an engineer and working his way up to CTO.
"Having worked to bring on-chain assets to traditional finance, I am very excited to close the circle and work to bring real-world assets on-chain," Yotam says. "Backed's solution offers the ‘holy grail’ of combining traditional and blockchain finance and opens up vast opportunities in this exciting landscape. I am especially looking forward to working with the team at Backed, whom I have known for several years and who consistently produce top-notch, innovative work."
Backed is a Swiss start-up bridging real-world assets on-chain. We issue on-chain tokens that track the value of real-world assets, such as stocks or ETFs.
