Entrepreneur Mines Bitcoin Phenomenon – BitGo CEO Talks to KING5 Seattle
Having spent the last 4 years in Seattle at casual games juggernaut Big Fish Games, Seattle’s premier TV news station KING5 wanted to catch up with O’Brien to find out about the move to the Bitcoin industry.
“This was the beginning of the Internet all over again,” said O’Brien in an interview with KING. “This was something magical, where companies could be built and an entrepreneur wanting to take a big risk could go after an opportunity here.”
O’Brien said that BitGo has foundational multi-signature technology that is positioning his company to build the Charles Schwab for Bitcoin. “You need two signers – just like two missile keys or two signers on a bank account – to unlock or transfer the (Bitcoin) funds,” he said. “With that foundational technology, we believe we can build a suite of services for both businesses and consumers around monitoring and managing your portfolio, around corporate treasury services, around escrow and other types of services that need to be part of the core infrastructure around financial services based on digital currency.”
