Tel Aviv-based Kirobo, a startup working on decentralized solutions, has appointed Michael Pearl as the company’s new Chief Operating Officer, who has already begun the new role.
Pearl joined the company weeks after it raised $5 million in funding from DigiMax, another company providing Artificial Intelligence and crypto technology solutions. His role in the company will be crucial as the startup is planning to utilize the proceeds in launching wealth management and more crypto transaction products.
“I’m delighted and thrilled to be joining the winning team of Kirobo,” Pearl told Finance Magnates. “Kirobo’s groundbreaking technology has already revolutionized the way people transfer cryptocurrency, and it has a bevy of new (and even more exciting) products, set to be released in 2021.”
“I aim to help Kirobo scale and expand its growing community of users, with the purpose of becoming one of the main cornerstones in the world of DeFi.”
