Blockchain Analytics Startup Flipside Crypto Appoints Matt Bridges As COObr>
Blockchain analytics startup Flipside Crypto has appointed Matt Bridges as Chief Operating Officer (COO).
Flipside Crypto is market intelligence platform that provides fundamental data on all major cryptocurrencies. Backed by Coinbase, Founder Collective, Digital Currency Group, True Ventures and others, the startup recently launched several products that feature different types of analysis, including a portfolio tracker for professional investors and crypto hedge funds. It also launched the Hubble Monitor for companies and projects looking to understand how users interrelate with their blockchain network.
Bridges joins Flipside Crypto from Accenture, where he ran their Digital Products business as Managing Director for the Boston studio. Prior to that role, he was the CTO at mobile design and development firm Intrepid, which was acquired by Accenture in 2017. Before Intrepid, Bridges spent 12 years working with American inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil, where he built technology leveraging pattern recognition, AI, and natural language processing.
As Flipside Crypto’s new COO, Bridges will collaborate with other members of the executive team to ensure operational excellence, compliance, and strategic growth across the organization.
“Matt brings to us a wealth of industry knowledge, a recognized passion for blockchain innovation, and an impressive track record of growing organizations at both the startup and institutional level,” said Dave Balter, CEO of Flipside Crypto. “I am thrilled to see him join our team and look forward to more successes for Flipside under his leadership.”
“My position at Accenture afforded me the opportunity to see how some of the largest companies in the world approach technology adoption,” said Bridges. “I was surprised to see how much of an impact blockchain was making not only in the finance industry but everywhere, from retail to insurance to logistics. As I was looking for opportunities to re-enter the startup world, I was fascinated by Flipside’s unique position to help elevate blockchain businesses to new standards. Growing blockchains need crucial insights to help them make the right decisions as they mature into thriving businesses.”
