Swiss digital asset fintech Scrypt names Marc Wäckerlin as CTO

Wäckerlin brings more than 30 years of finance, software development and engineering expertise to the role, Scrypt says.

Scrypt CEO and founder Norman Wooding says Wäckerlin’s passion for crypto and their role in the financial ecosystem, and his “impressive track record” supporting firms’ undergoing growth, “will be a great asset” to the firm.
Wäckerlin says he will be bringing his knowledge of digital asset technology to his new role, “where I see our visions for growth aligning perfectly”.
