Blythe Masters, one of the most well-known and respected figures in the world of corporate blockchain solutions, has left the post of CEO of New York-based Digital Asset Holdings, which she has occupied for the past three years.

The company’s statement says that Masters remains a shareholder, strategic advisors and a member of the board of directors of Digital Asset Holdings. As CEO, she leaves due to personal circumstances.

Acting CEO appointed AG Gangadhar, in the past held senior positions in Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Cruise (GM) and Uber, and since April this year, headed the board of directors of Digital Asset Holdings.

Blythe Masters led the company in 2015, a year after its creation. Under her leadership, Digital Asset has become one of the leading companies developing blockchain solutions for the corporate sector.

The company attracted multimillion investments, closing the last round of financing in the amount of more than $ 40 million in October 2017. Its partners include Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation, Google Cloud and the Australian Stock Exchange.

Digital Asset also launched a blockchain platform that allows traders to carry out operations in the financial market without the need to disclose confidential information.

EOS to Buy $30M Worth Domain For Its Social Network

The Block.One company, known for developing the EOS blockchain protocol, acquired a domain for its new social network Voice for $ 30 million. This is evidenced by documents published on the website of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Documents were provided by MicroStrategy, an analytical and mobile software provider. It follows the “voice.com” domain, registered in the GoDaddy domain name registry, was transferred to the EOS developer on May 30, 2019. After 2 days, Block.One officially announced preparations for the launch of a social network.

Block.one has made a smart strategic decision in choosing Voice.com to be the internet domain name for its new social media platform. The word ‘voice’ is simple and universally understood. It’s also ubiquitous — as a search term, it returns billions of results on the internet. An ultra-premium domain name like Voice.com can help a company achieve instant brand recognition, ignite a business, and massively accelerate value creation.

The commercial model of MicroStrategy is based, among other things, on the accumulation and sale of such expensive domain names.

According to Block.One, the identification of users and the use of the EOS blockchain in the social network will help to avoid the massive influx of bots, which often affect other members of this niche. Earlier, CEO Block.One Brendan Blamer reported that his company spent about $ 150 million to develop Voice.
