Hamed Sattari

Hamed joins Coinify after a decade at DIBS, leading Nordic payment gateway and acquiring service provider, where he has been part of the company’s transition and development and spent the last 2,5 years as the Head of IT Operations.

Coinify’s CEO Mark Højgaard expressed:

“We are very proud to welcome Hamed Sattari as our new CTO. Hamed’s arrival is great news for Coinify, as being the former IT-director of the multinational Payment Service Provider DIBS Payment Services, he will strengthen our tailored Bitcoin payment product for the PSP industry.”

Coinify’s mission is to mainstream adoption of digital currencies. Mainstreaming what is referred to as the greatest innovation in the finance industry in past decades is a driving force for our achievements. We are a team of professionals with different backgrounds and this view unites us. Hamed will be a great addition to our team, as he expressed that apart from having a soft spot for digital commerce, he believes that crypto currencies are the future for digital payments.

On that note, Mark Højgaard added:

“It is our intention to create the world’s best tailored Bitcoin solution for the Payment Service Provider industry. We have come far with our mission, still we expect Hamed to take our product to an even higher standard with his in-depth knowledge within the PSP industry.”

Return from corporate to startup to make Bitcoin easy

Hamed shared his enthusiasm about his new career path joining Coinify with his professional network on LinkedIn :

“I’m honoured to get the chance to start at an early state on the journey of Coinify. Today DIBS processes a large amount of transactions in Scandinavia, with a technical setup that is more than 20 times bigger than 10 years ago and an organisation that is 10 times bigger than 10 years ago. I will start new adventures in Coinify as CTO. This brings a lot of memories back from the old DIBS days, since Coinify is where DIBS was 10-14 years ago.”


On behalf of all Coinify team, we would like to express our warmest welcome to Hamed and look forward to achievements lying ahead.
