Coinbase’s former CTO Balaji Srinivasan has just decided to be a part of Findora, a blockchain company focused on decentralizing the financial market. The former Coinbase exec will become one of the new strategic advisors of the project.
When he left Coinbase, the executive affirmed that he “enjoyed his time” and was ready for the future in order to find new challenges. He also has experience as a general partner at Andreessen Horowitz, a prominent venture capital firm and as the CEO of Earn.com, a messaging service focused on the blockchain technology.
Dan Boneh was also hired as an strategic partner in the same day. He is the current head of the cryptography group of the Stanford University.
Charles Lu, the CEO of Findora, has affirmed that it was important to welcome personalities such as the two new advisors on the team now. These are people with years of experience, he affirmed, and will be very important in order to offer unique insight to Findora.
According to him, the company has the goal of democratizing finances and will continue to do it while letting the users have more control over their data whenever it is possible.
This way, the CEO believes, individuals and companies will have more financial freedom to be a part of the global ecosystem. The goal of the platform is to support open banking, P2P lending, asset securitization and several decentralized apps.
