Didier is one of the active Community Board members of Ref Finance, mostly involved in Project and Product Management, as well as Strategy. Didier is also very active in the NEAR ecosystem, being one of the selected mentors of the Near Blockchain Accelerator program.

Didier has a very strong knowledge of market structures. Previously at Suiteki, he successfully deployed a crypto arbitrage solution integrated to 10+ exchanges that traded €100m+ in volume and executed 100,000+ orders.

In 2018, Didier joined the Techstars and Barclays Fintech Accelerator program in London, working directly with Fabio Maffioli, now startup Program Manager at Facebook, and with Managing Director Chris Adelsbach, the award-winning Fintech investor and one of the most prolific angel investors in the UK.

Didier is also a ‘Junior Developer’ and has released, the first Data and Analytics tool built on top of Ref Finance.

“I am so excited to work more closely with the Ref Team and Community. My very first focus will be to have a top-notch and ‘data-driven’ view of both: the AMM market and our users. I am determined to participate in the success of Ref and tackle the next challenges, including scalability, sustainable growth and regulation. The goal is to position the product among the top names in the DeFi space and as the entry door to the best Layer 1 smart contract infrastructure I have experienced, the NEAR protocol.” — Didier Pironi
