Bitreserve has announced a change of leadership, one that sees its chief operating officer and president Anthony Watson taking on the role of CEO.
Watson told CoinDesk:
“In terms of the leadership change, this was always something in the pipeline. It was something we discussed when I came in, myself and Halsey. I can call him one of the most brilliant people I’ve ever met. Literally brilliant.”
The leadership change comes amid of a service push by the company.
Earlier this month, Bitreserve announced free currency conversions for verified users, and recently launched Bitreserve Connect, a developer platform that Watson said has exceeded expectations in terms of developer interest.
The company is planning further roll-outs over the course of the summer and beyond. Declining to offer specifics, Watson said Bitreserve is planning “game-changing” announcements and characterized them as a mixture of hires, partnerships and product releases.
