Craig Hammel, a senior blockchain developer, has joined Moralis and taken the role of senior technical advisor. Craig Hammel was the first engineering hire at Coinbase and so having him on the Moralis team will be a big boost to investor confidence and the spirit of the team.

The project recently closed a private round where it raised $13 million from EQT Ventures. This fund will be used to scale the product offerings of the company and also increase its HR capacity.

Bringing  Craig on board will help position the company favorably as a top contender in creating back-end software for dApps in the blockchain ecosystem. Craig is also expected to use his skills to help enhance the product offerings on  Moralis.

Craig had this to say about this move:

“I have always known the critical part Moralis plays in the blockchain ecosystem. Having a team of developers handle your backend operations while you focus on the bigger picture of the project is invaluable. If you are a programmer, this is like a small army at your disposal that enables you to handle the bigger tasks at hand. This is an exciting move and I look forward to working with this new team.”

The current blockchain environment is filled with multiple players and tools across different platforms. While these tools help solve multiple problems that would have otherwise been a hard nut to crack, there is no single entity that has tried to address most of these problems from one platform. That is where Moralis comes in.

Moralis is a software platform that handles all backend operations of a platform, allowing the project managers to work on the front end. This helps companies to build scalable and secure dApps quickly, saving them time and money that would have been spent on looking for, and hiring, programmers. The platform is also ideal for companies that may not have the resources to hire in-house programmers. Moralis is helping build the next generation of dapps that are secure, decentralized, and scalable.
