Unlimited opportunities with new chief technology officer

According to the official announcement shared by ADALend team members, its administration finally decided to onboard a new chief technolgy officer. Blockchain veteran Ali Krynitsky now coordinates the development efforts of ADALend engineers.

Mr. Krynitsky is well known for his unmatched expertise in software development for enterprise and consumer instruments; working with ADALend will be his first experience in Plutus-based Cardano (ADA).

Commenting on the results of a massive hiring campaign, the ADALend team stressed that development on Haskell and Plutus remains quite challenging now. As covered by U.Today previously, Cardano (ADA) enabled smart contract functionality with the mainnet activation of its update, Alonzo.

Haskell is a purpose-made programming language for Cardano, while Plutus Core is a low-code compiler designed to accelerate DeFi development and smart contracts deployment on Cardano's PoS.

With newly hired officers, ADALend will address the lack of transparency and safety in decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols to advance trading and yield farming in Web3.

As covered by U.Today previously, ADALend's CEO, Kaspars Koskins, explained why he chose Cardano (ADA) as the technical basis for his DeFi.
