Blockchain.com adds world-class leadership to its ranks

Since 2011, Blockchain.com has been one of the most trusted and widely used crypto platforms in the world. We’ve grown to 85 million wallets in more than 200 countries, thousands of institutional clients, and facilitated more than $1.2 trillion in crypto transactions. As we look toward the future and continue to build on more than a decade of innovation, I’m excited to welcome new engineering leaders and recognize the outstanding work of promoted leaders as we build the future of finance.

Please join me in welcoming two new colleagues and celebrating two well-deserved promotions.

  • Adam Schlisman has been promoted to Chief Financial Officer. Previously serving as Deputy CFO at Blockchain.com, Adam is now responsible for all of the company’s financial functions, where he brings a pragmatic approach to solving challenges and engaging opportunities.
