As a result of the grant from Brink, Michael will be leaving the BitMEX open source developer grant program when his grant expires at the end of May 2022. Michael was the first Bitcoin developer to join our grant program, having entered into the grant agreement with us in July 2019. After almost three years of support from BitMEX, Michael is moving on. We wish him the best of luck for the future and thank him for all his hard work over the years, which helped get Bitcoin to where it is today.
Congratulations to Michael and Brink!
