According to the report, Swanson is going to be working full-time on Clearmatics and he will be working as the head of market intelligence. Swanson has been the director of market research at the blockchain builder R3. He has been working on this position from 2015 until late 2017, when the most popular digital asset, Bitcoin (BTC), was reaching its all-time high.
Clearmatics is the technology partner for Finality, a consortium of financial institutions that build the interbank virtual currency “utility settlement coin” (USC). The virtual currency gathered $63.2 million in funding just last week. Clearmatics has also raised $12 million in a series A round in October.
Although Mr. Swanson will not be directly working on Finality’s USC project, he will be focused on other initiatives. He wants to participate in the creation of critical infrastructure for the future of the organization.
