Michael Haley quietly left his job as product manager at digital securities platform AlphaPoint in November to join the crypto custody provider Casa, CoinDesk has learned. At Casa, Haley is a product experience lead who takes care of onboarding new clients, "Making sure that the product meets their needs," he said. As the Casa wallet is designed to store large amounts of bitcoin, the clients need to be properly instructed and assisted to make their experience smooth and safe.
"It's not a daily wallet where money is going in and out every day," Haley said. At AlphaPoint, which he joined in 2015, Haley helped launch customers' trading platforms, designed product features and led partnerships with CME Group and the U.K. Royal Mint.
"We think it's an industry-wide problem, and one of the original sins of the crypto companies was that they were building the services where the end users didn't control their keys," Haley said. AlphaPoint declined to comment on Haley's departure but noted that his position had been filled by Asha Daskshinamoorthy, who joined in February from ethereum design studio ConsenSys and earlier worked as a tech strategy and blockchain consultant at Deloitte.
