Ben Davenport, One Of Facebook Messenger’s Creators, Joins Bitcoin Startup BitGo As CPO

"Ben Davenport, who co-founded the startup Beluga which Facebook acquired to build its Messenger app, just left the company after several years to dive into the world of bitcoin."

"He’s joining BitGo as a co-founder and chief product officer. BitGo is building a security-as-a-service platform for bitcoin. Last year, the startup launched a multi-signature wallet, which requires three keys to access. Other web-based wallets like Coinbase, store their bitcoin off the blockchain, or the public ledger of transactions, and manage a consumer’s private keys for them. Meanwhile, another web-based wallet startup called Blockchain lets users handle their own private keys directly."

"He’s been actively investing in the space for the last couple of years, so a role inside an up-and-coming bitcoin startup made sense. He’ll be overseeing BitGo’s product strategy and development."
