Lazy Sunday for most of the people, however, not for cryptocurrencies.

As you can see on CoinMarketCap, the main cryptos are green; bitcoin costs $6,844 at press time. Do you want to know more about what happened during this weekend? Vitalik says what he thinks about centralized cryptocurrency exchange markets. Gemini hires their first Chief Technology Officer.

Vitalik’s Opinion

Vitalik Buterin creator of the Ethereum hopes that centralized cryptocurrency exchange platforms will “burn in hell as much as possible.”

During “Fireside chat” TechCrunch journalist Jon Evans asked Vitalik about centralized exchanges. The creator of the Ethereum said that centralized cryptocurrencies should burn in hell, and explained why decentralization is the way exchanges should go.

However, he agreed that it is tough to decentralize fiat to crypto exchanges, because “they ultimately interfere with the fiat world’, and the fiat world has centralized getaways.

Gemini New CTO

According to the press release, Gemini will have the first Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

Cryptocurrency exchange market founded by two brothers, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, hired the former New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Chief Information Officer (CIO) Robert Cornish.

“Rob is a tremendous addition to our team. He will ensure that Gemini continues to deliver the best platform experience to our customers as possible and set the standards of excellence for the cryptocurrency industry as a whole. Rob is globally recognized for his abilities in leading high-performing engineering teams, his expertise in exchange and matching-engine architecture, and running high-throughput platforms that are both secure and resilient,” said Tyler Winklevoss, Chief Executive Officer, Gemini.

As we can find in the press release, Cornish would be in charge of Gemini’s technology team and strategy and will supervise deployment of Nasdaq’s SMARTS Market Surveillance, a benchmark for “real-time and T1” solutions for market surveillance.
