Introducing Rio Foundation Key Hires

Hiring Veterans from BitGo, Coinbase, and Figment


The Rio Foundation (‘RF’) has hired Luke Hajdukiewicz from BitGo, Freddie Allen from Coinbase, and Clayton Menzel from Figment.


Luke, Freddie, and Clayton have over a decade of combined experience leading teams across BitGo, Coinbase, and Figment, which collectively custody or manage $100B+ of crypto assets for hundreds of institutional clients including funds, RIAs, family offices, exchanges, and networks.

Just like with staking, restaking brings new risks, questions, and opportunities to the institutional community. And just like with staking, these three veterans will be on the forefront of the industry, partnering with and educating large allocators on how to restake with Rio Network in a secure, risk-managed way.

Rio Network's mission is to provide the best access to risk-managed ETH total return. Rio Network executes on this mission by coordinating AVS selection and weighting, operator selection, liquidity and asset mix for restaked deposits, and efficient aggregation of restaking rewards.
