About me

I’m Torkel Rogstad, and I’m a full-stack software developer with a special interest in Bitcoin, and other democratizing financial technologies. I have extensive work experience with Bitcoin and the Lightning Network, having worked in multiple startups in the Bitcoin/fin-tech space. I have been featured in several of Norway’s biggest newspapers as a Bitcoin expert, with comments on privacy and tracking of funds on the Bitcoin network, as well as on fundamentals in the Bitcoin market.

Currently I work for Arcane Crypto, Norway’s leading Bitcoin financial company. I’m on the Teslacoil project, a non-custodial payment processor for businesses that want to accept global payments without counterparty risk at low cost and quick settlement finality.
