Dfns, a wallet infrastructure and security firm for Web3, has appointed a new Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Business Development and Sales to support its expansion.
Noah Cornwell, the new CTO, brings nearly seven years of experience from cryptocurrency exchange and custodian Gemini, where he served as Vice President of Engineering. Cornwell’s expertise in financial technology and enterprise organizations will help drive Dfns’ strategic developments as it creates new wallet-as-a-service solutions for B2B and B2B2C organizations.
John Conneely, the new Vice President of Business Development and Sales, has five years of experience in steering the growth of institutional custody offerings at prominent blockchain and cryptocurrency firms, including Genesis and Bakkt. Conneely will lead new business and sales initiatives, focusing on expanding Dfns’ partnerships and addressing misconceptions around cryptocurrency wallet custodianship. He aims to develop partnerships for Dfns and grow its client base.
Dfns aims to make it safe and simple for developers to build and launch compliance-friendly wallet infrastructure products. Its new CTO and Vice President of Business Development and Sales will play instrumental roles in achieving this goal.
Dfns utilizes industry-leading Multi-Party Computation (MPC) technology and innovative, programmable APIs to help banks, NFT platforms, neobanks, and others abstract away the complexities of key management, thereby improving user experience.
Clarisse Hagège, CEO of Dfns, highlighted the strong leadership and expertise of Noah and John. She emphasized that their addition to the team would allow Dfns to offer new user and developer-friendly solutions while maintaining wallet security.
Dfns has recently made significant strides, including partnering with Cryptosat to launch the first-ever Space Wallet and introducing a self-custodial wallet-as-a-service solution that utilizes biometric technology for secure and user-friendly wallet management. The company is expanding its network of integrated blockchains, clients using its secure wallet-as-a-service APIs, and solutions aimed at providing maximum security through seedless wallets.
