About Yan Pritzker

I've been a developer and startup co-founder for the last twenty years, with experience in all aspects of software development and early startup strategy.

In 2012 I joined David Kalt as the co-founding CTO at, a business we grew to over 130 employees, close to half a billion dollars in annual sales, and to the top 300 trafficked US websites.

In 2016, I became deeply interested in Bitcoin and spent hours every day listening to podcasts, watching videos, and reading technical and economic information. In 2017 I decided to depart from Reverb in order to pursue my passion of bringing Bitcoin to the world.
