Bakkt opened new vacancies amid a high probability of a further delay in the launch of the platform


The Bitcoin futures platform that is preparing for its launch, Bakkt, published on Tuesday, January 22, a list of eight vacancies, including for the developers and the financial director.

In particular, Bakkt is looking for a director for blockchain development, a blockchain developer, a security director, a full stack senior developer, a mobile developer and a developer of test tools. There are also vacancies for the financial director and the institutional sales director.

Most of the employees will work in Atlanta, however, some Bakkt positions are also available for New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo, San Francisco, London, Tel Aviv and Singapore.

It should be noted that, due to the so-called Shatdaun, that is, the suspension of work by US government agencies due to the delay in adopting the country's budget, scheduled for January 24, the launch of Bakkt apparently will not take finished.

Previously, representatives of the platform stressed that to start the platform, the company needs to obtain the relevant permit from the regulator in the person of the Commission for currency exchange (CFTC), but its activities were also paralyzed as a result of the shatdaun. The situation is aggravated by the fact that now nobody can say when exactly the crisis that arose will be resolved and government agencies will resume work.

Recall that on December 31, the Bakkt platform successfully closed the first round of financing, under which it raised $ 182.5 million. At the same time, the company announced that it was postponing the launch until January 24.

Last week, Bakkt acquired part of the assets of the futures broker Rosenthal Collins Group (RCG).
