Giacomo Zucco

Co-Founder Bcademy

After studying Physics at the University of Milan in Italy, he became a Technology Consultant in Accenture for a few years, mostly in the industry of traditional payments. After discovering Bitcoin in 2013, he quit his “respectable” job to take part to some Bitcoin-focused startups (some successful experience in wallets, some mixed experience in mining, some unsuccessful experience in “blockchain tracking” nonsense).

In 2015 he created a Bitcoin-focused R&D center in Milan, which later extended in the BHB research and consultancy Network in Switzerland and elsewhere. He sold his companies in 2018, to focus on his freelance activities (and on his family). While mostly operating as a freelance, he still cooperates with a few organizations, such as Bcademy (for education), Bitcoin Magazine (for articles), LNP/BP Association (for non-profit FLOSS development), etc.
