All About New Additions to Blockchain.com
Many people know Messina as a power broker in Washington DC even though he’s more than that. He is also a tech mogul. Apart from him, many of Obama’s employees diversified into the tech industry.
For instance, David Pouffe, who managed Obama’s 2008 campaign, became Uber’s Senior VP of Policy & Strategy in 2014. In 2015, the second White House press secretary during Obama’s regime joined Amazon as the Senior VP.
Another interesting fact about the recent employee of Blockchain.com, Messina, is that he has ties with the members of Biden’s administration.
Not only is he familiar with Biden, but he’s also friends with his nominee for SEC chair, Gary Gensler. Gensler was once appointed by Obama as the chair of the Community Futures Trading Commission. So, it’s safe to say that Messina knows many big shots in the political arena.
How Blockchain.com Seeks To Benefit From All These?
Presently, the crypto wallet service offers three products; a wallet for storage, a spot trading exchange, and an explorer for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Bitcoin Cash.
According to the firm, it has created at least 70 million wallets since its inception in 2011. Also, the company reported that it had facilitated at least 28% of BTC transactions through the wallet product. However, the exchange product for spot trading is not leading in its space because it was launched in 2019.
For now, the exchange offers 31 markets for 17 coins in contrast to Binance with 1,104 markers, Coinbase with 142 markers, and Kraken with 284 markers. But what it doesn’t enjoy in the exchange space, it’s occupying the number one position in Google search whenever anyone types “blockchain” in the search engine.
So, Blockchain.com is planning to use the two master of messaging & maneuvering, Messina & Kasselman, to become more visible. At least with their influence in the political landscape, these two can help the company spread wider. By that, the firm aims at making more revenue from its products. As for resources, these two giants have everything at their disposal.
This is because, last month, Blockchain.com announced that its investors had contributed $120 million to aid its development.
