Cyril brings a wealth of web3 product strategy, and international experience to Zero Hash’s mission to become the one-stop global crypto-as-a-service infrastructure platform

CHICAGO, March 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zero Hash, the leading global crypto-as-a-service provider, today announced the appointment of Cyril Mathew as President and COO.

Cyril joins the company after earning his crypto credentials at Coinbase and Stripe as well as leading international scaling at Uber and Facebook. At Coinbase, he led strategic initiatives such the launch and growth of USDC, launching the Coinbase debit card, and securing Visa Principal membership (the first time membership was awarded to a crypto company). Most recently, at Stripe, as Global Head Of Business Development & Partnerships - Crypto, Cyril led Stripe’s movement into crypto and web3 as well as launching their fiat-to-crypto onramp, powered by Zero Hash.

Zero Hash’s API-first technology and turnkey regulatory infrastructure, enables companies to seamlessly embed crypto products natively into their own platform. Zero Hash today powers a number of global innovators, including Stripe, Moonpay, Curve and Nium. These companies trust Zero Hash because of its technical robustness and global regulatory footprint.

“We are thrilled to have Cyril on board,” said Edward Woodford, Founder & CEO of Zero Hash. “I got to know Cyril as my counterpart at Stripe where we established a strong rapport and realized that we shared a strong alignment on how to scale organizations. I am excited that Cyril joining Zero Hash serves as further validation of our position as the leading crypto infrastructure provider and will be an integral part of our continued international expansion and growth.”

“When I spoke to Edward (Founder & CEO of Zero Hash) early on, he told me his thesis was simple: crypto technology would change how value was transacted, and eventually, every FinTech and internet company would enable crypto or web3 use cases in some form. As this thesis plays out, Zero Hash has the trusted and regulated infrastructure for them to build on,” said Cyril Mathew, President and COO of Zero Hash. “Having experienced first hand partnering with Zero Hash and leveraging their regulated infrastructure for Stripe, I got to see and understand why they have become the leading crypto infrastructure provider and I’m pleased I have the opportunity to play a role in the next stage of their growth journey.”
