Jan Møller

Biography: Jan Møller

Jan Møller is the lead developer of Mycelium, a secure, fast, and lightweight Bitcoin wallet.

Jan has been developing professional software for more than 2 decades, and has over the years been tech lead on numerous projects based on cryptography running in high security and heavily controlled environments in the financial sector. In recent years Jan has been working on x86 virtualization at VMware.

With a background in computer science, cryptography, and large scale distributed systems Bitcoin was simply too interesting to let go. Jan discovered Bitcoin in early 2011 and fell down the rabbit hole. As of 2012 he has replaced virtual machines with virtual coins.
