People who make the gears turn
Dmitrijus BorisenkaCEO & Co-Founder
Dmitrijus is the CEO & Co-Founder of CoinGate and a proud owner of the English bulldog named Poka. He’s also a man that can turn any activity into a hardcore challenge, which leads him to do things like a marathon in North Korea, Ironman triathlon, stuff like that. His other known passions are electronic music and luring employees into Jiu-Jitsu gym to throw them around.
Jonas GilysCFO & Co-Founder
Adventure seeker, world explorer, an untamed spirit, the man on the road with one leg shorter than the other, Jonas is one of the company's three founders. He’s hard not to like - very chill, very approachable, very smart, once skipped school for two months without any consequences. That says a lot about a person.
Irmantas BačiulisLead Developer & Co-Founder
Irmantas not only co-founded the company. He was the one to write the first line of code that started CoinGate. Irmantas is still doing his coding shenanigans to this day when he’s not focused on learning all tactics of chess and beating Magnus Carlsen on a virtual chess simulator. Not like Queen’s Gambit TV show has anything to do with it.
Do you know Satoshi, the mysterious person who wrote the Bitcoin white paper? Rytis is the closest thing that you will ever find. Computer security, social engineering and cryptography are great conversation starters if you’d try to befriend this proud Bitcoin maximalist. And he wanted to become a psychologist back in the day. Imagine that.
