A passion for researching encryption and cybersecurity coupled with the struggle of easily purchasing an emerging blockchain-based currency showed Mike an opportunity to provide a simple, easy-to-use solution for buying Bitcoin—a Bitcoin ATM kiosk—leading to the inception of CoinMover in 2017.
As Founder, Mike’s tenured past in information technology and finance have played a pivotal role in defining CoinMover’s strict security and regulatory measures to protect not only the company but its customers as well. As Chief Technology Officer, Mike leads the charge of hiring of best-in-class talent to support the company’s evolving technological expansion as the digital currency industry rapidly innovates with cutting-edge technology—always with a focus on security in mind. Additionally, he keeps a pulse on the emerging industry opportunities to keep the company at the forefront in the market.
Prior to founding CoinMover, Mike held positions in finance and healthcare information technology for prominent institutional players as JP Morgan, Brown Brothers Harriman, and Tufts Health Plan.
Mike serves on the CoinMover Board of Directors and is a Fast Company Executive Board Member.
A travel fanatic with a goal to visit every country in the world (currently on #52 out of roughly 193), Mike is encouraged by the increasing global adoption of digital currency, which is a step towards a decentralized global economy.
