About the Reviewers

Francesco Canessa is a software developer experienced in Bitcoin and blockchain technologies. His preferred tools when working with Bitcoin are Bitcoin Core via its JSON API for its solidity and simplicity, and the Bitcore JavaScript library for making slim client-side wallet software. As he believes that Bitcoin and blockchain are important innovations of our times, he builds open source projects (for example, BitNFC—http://bitnfc.org) to research and show the true power of these new technologies, and find new ways to drive Bitcoin's adoption. He has been working as the main translator on the Italian edition of Mastering Bitcoin, O'Reilly Media, written by Andreas M. Antonopoulous. His favorite programming language is Ruby and his hobbies are creating 3D printers and IoT.
