Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin in 2009 as a financial safeguard against the threat of another global economic disaster, following the 2008 housing bubble collapse. Unfortunately, 11 years after Bitcoin’s creation, Nakamoto’s technology has already been put to the test during the current worldwide economic downturn created by the coronavirus pandemic.
Even though the crypto markets saw a dip in March that mimicked the stock market crash, most crypto and blockchain companies are continuing their operations as usual — if ever, this is the time for crypto and blockchain to flourish.

Argent has built a crypto wallet based on the Ethereum blockchain that aims to increase accessibility to DeFi projects, as well as send and exchange cryptoassets. Known for their social key recovery mechanism, the wallet is non-custodial, allowing users to have 100% control over their digital assets with all information remaining private for everyone but the user.
The team at Argent used smart contracts to build the wallets after seeking to solve the security issues associated with traditional crypto wallets, following feedback from the crypto community. They have introduced daily transfer limits, wallet locking, eliminated transfer fees and allowed assets to earn interest with Maker and Compound.
In March this year (2020), they announced their $12 million Series A funding round with Paradigm, Index Ventures and Creandum among their backers. The Argent team is largely based out of Europe and is a 100% remote team. They are currently looking to expand the non-engineering side of the team and are hiring a project manager based out in Europe to work alongside their technical team, helping users navigate the ever-changing face of tech and finance.
MetaMask is a popular in-browser crypto wallet and a gateway to blockchain apps. The team is a part of ConsenSys, yet they function independently. Since its launch, MetaMask has garnered over a million users and counting.
They are currently hiring a senior mobile developer to bring their proven experience to phones and reach a wider audience. The role is remote, yet you will need to be based in the Americas.
Counting Sequoia Capital, MetaStable Capital, Baidu Ventures and IMO Ventures among its backers, Conflux’s core team is made up of award winning scientists in the field of computer science who are working toward the goal of integrating technology and businesses with advanced blockchain technology.
The team at Conflux come from very diverse and elite backgrounds, and are working together to solve the key issues in Ethereum blockchain technology — scalability, decentralization and security, with an added advantage of speed.
Within the next few months, Conflux is aiming to launch its main network, and is currently hiring a remote research engineer to help with enhancing the network resilience whilst ensuring the network can continuously evolve to meet requirements as it changes.
Formerly known as Breadwallet, BRD aims to become the largest decentralized financial institution in the world. It was one of the first Bitcoin wallets that was allowed on the Apple app store in 2014, and has been downloaded more than 3 million times to date.
BRD currently operates out of four offices: three in America and one in Japan, and half the team operates remotely. Whether you have a technical or business background, the team stays close and has annual all-company retreats to bring everyone together.
BRD has a long-term vision and roadmap, and is currently hiring for their teams (both technical and business remote roles) in all four offices to join them on their journey! If you’re looking to join their team and change the face of finance, BRD is the right choice for you.
Lunie is the staking and governance platform for proof-of-stake blockchains. The six-member strong team has come a long way since their humble beginning a year ago — launching the beta version of Lunie Mobile for both iPhone and Android and announcing their first mainnet e-money network staking interface, as well as their first mainnet staking integration.
Staking is still a relatively new idea, and the team at Lunie is taking this as a technological and social experiment with the ultimate goal of gaining more traction and making an impact by permanently solving some of the more technical challenges facing blockchains today.
The team at Lunie works remotely and is split between Canada and Europe. They are constantly engaged with each other in a fun and fast-paced environment collaborating with other projects to take on what’s possible on new proof-of-stake blockchains, while ensuring users can safely store, manage and stack their crypto assets from PoS networks with Lunie’s own tools.
Status is building the tools and infrastructure for the advancement of a secure, private and open web3. As a product, Status is an open source, Ethereum-based app that gives users the power to chat, transact and access a revolutionary world of DApps on the decentralized web. With the high level goals of preserving the right to privacy, mitigating the risk of censorship and promoting economic trade in a transparent, open manner, Status is building a community where anyone is welcome to join and contribute. As an organization, Status seeks to push the web3 ecosystem forward through research, creation of developer tools and support of the open source community.
Status’ culture is 100% remote: they don’t have offices and have no plans to lease any. Like most organizations, they employ people in different countries. Some choose to work from co-working spaces, and they provide a monthly allowance of about 250 euros to enable them to rent a workspace if desired. They also have people who travel the world – either visiting friends or renting Airbnbs in different countries.
For those companies and employees that have now found themselves fully-remote, freelance platform TopTal (which itself is entirely remote!) has released a guide, aptly called “The Suddenly Remote Playbook,” for maintaining the quality of your work in a home work environment.
