Blockstream, blockchain company, today announced a new member to its executive team. Starting this month, Samson Mow is joining Blockstream as its new Chief Strategy Officer. With the addition of this strategic hire, Blockstream continues on its path to bring even more cryptographic innovations to the market and to expand its global footprint.

Having reached approximately $80 million (USD) after its Series A funding, Blockstream sees 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.

"Samson's skills and experience are exceptionally complementary to Blockstream, leveraging both his deep Bitcoin and startup expertise," said Blockstream's CEO, Dr. Adam Back. "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."

Prior to joining Blockstream, Mow was the COO of BTCC (BTCChina), one of the largest digital currency exchanges and mining pools in the world. At BTCC, Mow led the company through a period of rapid growth and was responsible for the mining and exchange business units, along with operations, product development, and marketing.
