Pendulum Welcomes Alexander Theißen and Michael Müller as Advisors
Pendulum & Amplitude are excited to announce the onboarding of two top tier Technical Advisors. Alexander Theißen and Michael Müller both come from a strong academic background and like to explore the bleeding edge of technology. Now that Amplitude is live on Kusama and the Pendulum Polkadot auction is getting closer, the creative technical expertise of the Dotsama-native pair should prove invaluable to our ecosystem growth.

In his current position he is working with Parity on developing an innovative environment for executing WASM smart contracts.We are looking forward to collaborating with Alex as a Technical Advisor on embracing the advantages of WebAssembly as an underlying technology of Pendulum.
For close to four years Michael Müller has been working in the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystems. In his current position, he is working with Parity on developing a programming language for smart contracts, called ink!. Similar to Alex, Michael also specializes in driving the development of WebAssembly smart contracts within the Dotsama space. Collaborating with Michael as a Technical Advisor enables Pendulum to have confidence in our ability to establish a flourishing WebAssembly smart contracts ecosystem.
