Taavet Hinrikus was Skype's first employee. In 2003, both were working internationally – Hinrikus at Skype, Kaarmann at Deloitte – and they quickly discovered that tranferring money was expensive. Kaarmann was paid in sterling but owned property in Estonia; Hinrikus was paid in euros but needed living expenses in sterling. So they started a two-man currency transaction service (later expanded to the “Skype club” – a handful of friends that grouped together to save on exchange rates).

Taavet Hinrikus, CEO of TransferWise said about a year ago that "Bitcoin, I think we can say, is dead. There is no traction, no one is using bitcoin. The bitcoin experiment, I think we can say, is over." (Price BTC at the time: $430 USD)
