Who is Lightswap?

Blockchain and cryptocurrency are hot topics, but the process of buying, selling, and learning about cryptocurrency is convoluted.

Leon Johnson saw an opportunity to build an app that could help educate and empower people interested in crypto. In the video below, Leon talks about why he reached out to thoughtbot to help him with his vision, what the process of working together was like, and what the future holds.

Quote about the Lightswap project

The methodology that thoughtbot uses is extremely lean. At the end of every week there was something they could show me and that I could play with and I could use. It was really exciting to see it become real.
