Blockchain company Blockstream has announced that Samson Mow is joining its executive team as Chief Strategy Officer. With the addition of this strategic hire, Blockstream is continuing in its goal to bring more cryptographic innovations to the market and to expand its global footprint. Having reached approximately $80 million USD after its Series A funding, Blockstream is seeing continued investor interest, especially from strategic partners who want to accelerate blockchain technology in Asia, where the company believes the path to its technologies in production will be the shortest.
CEO of Blockstream, Dr. Adam Back said: “Samson’s skills and experience are exceptionally complementary to Blockstream, leveraging both his deep Bitcoin and startup expertise. As we accelerate and shift to the launch and marketing of our enterprise and consumer products, Samson will be undertaking a number of immediate strategic initiatives, including the establishment of Blockstream offices in China and Canada.”
