Cryptocurrency Exchange Bitstamp Appoints Ex-Barclays Executive As New COO

UK-based digital asset exchange Bitstamp has recruited the former director of financial services company Barclays’ payments team, Sameer Dubey, as its COO. Notably, Dubey is a ten-year veteran of Barclays and former head of operations for N26.

In a recent announcement, the exchange stated that it would be hiring Dubey to the COO position as part of its attempt to scale across the company’s businesses. Notably, Dubey was also a member of the team behind the bank’s blockchain and distributed ledger council. Until lately, he also served as the head of operations for United Kingdom-based neobank N26.

Dubey said,

“I think that in a few years, we won’t really be talking about a cryptocurrency industry anymore.”

He added,

“It will be another part of finance and innovative crypto businesses will be considered fintechs similarly to how N26 is perceived today.”

He further mentioned,

“As crypto merges with finance, the part we play is going to take on new meaning. Part of what makes this space so exciting is that we really can’t know where we’ll be in, let’s say, 10 years.”

Notably, Bitstamp is one of the oldest exchanges in the digital asset domain, with business units based in numerous nations. Last year, in the month of October, former Gemini executive Julian Sawyer became the organization’s new Chief Executive Officer, substituting founder Nejc Kodrič.
