Matt Corallo, the co-founder of Blockstream and Chaincode Labs alum, has joined Square Crypto. Corallo is one of the most prominent Bitcoin developers in the industry, and his addition to Square Crypto’s team will give the firm a boost in its operations.
Throughout his career so far, Corallo has been at the center of groundbreaking work such as the implementation of rust-lightning, a development that brings ease to the building of layers in a Bitcoin network.
Corallo’s work brings efficiency and makes it easier for developers to interact with the various layers of a system.

Speaking on his move to Square Crypto, Corallo said that he wants to work with a team that has a wide range of talent and the accompanying experience.
He hopes that such a group would develop models that can address various issues with regards to Bitcoin user experience in different use cases.
The developer went on to say that his work at Square Crypto will be a bit different from the work he was doing at Chaincode or Blockstream.
Square Crypto offers the opportunity for him to work with a more focused and tighter unit. This method will help him tackle bigger problems associated with Bitcoin.
Square Crypto hiring for more positions
Square Crypto is taking applications for many positions in its project. The project is headed by Steve Lee, a former director at Google.
Job openings advertised by Square Crypto show that the firm is looking to hire a designer and two more engineers who will be working on the Bitcoin improvement team.
The firm is also seeking an operations lead to add to its team, among other job vacancies they have announced.
Improvement of Bitcoin use cases
The development and improvement of use cases is the key to enable the mainstream adoption of the leading cryptocurrency.
As the crypto asset becomes more accessible and usable in day to day activities, more people will take it up. A simple use case would be making it possible to easily buy Bitcoin with PayPal, which will avail crypto trading to more traders.
Corallo and the team at Square Crypto may come up with the usability solutions that Bitcoin needs.
Cryptocurrencies are on the brink of mainstream adoption, and if more use cases are developed, this adoption will become much easier.
