Jameson Lopp is a cypherpunk, software engineer, writer, and Bitcoin security expert. He is the co-founder and CTO of BTC security provider Casa. 

Prior to joining Casa, Lopp was a software engineer at BitGo. He first became involved in Bitcoin around 2012. 

Lopp made national headlines in 2017 when he was the victim of a swatting attack. He decided to live off the grid as the result of that incident, and the New York Times has written about the extent to which Lopp went in order to privatize his life. He purchased a decoy house, created a number of business entities and paid private investigators to try and find him. His exact location remains unknown and in his community he is only known by a pseudonym.
