Robinhood crypto COO resigns

Robinhood crypto COO Christine Brown is leaving the company after five years as its first crypto administrative leader.

Announcing her resignation in a recent tweet, Brown said: “After 5 amazing years at @RobinhoodApp, I’m moving on to start something new. I joined RH when it was under 100 people – before we even offered a crypto product. Watching us grow through IPO and serving more than 22m users has been the greatest professional experience of my life.”

The former executive expressed her thanks to the company and revealed she had started her own crypto venture.

Between 2017 and 2021, Brown transitioned from the VP of product operations to the company’s first-ever crypto COO.

Gretchen Howard, Robinhood COO said in a statement: “We’re so grateful to Christine for her contributions to Robinhood over the past five years – from leading our self-clearing initiative to scaling the Robinhood Crypto team. We’re excited to follow her entrepreneurial journey going forward.”

During Brown’s tenure, the highlight of her career was her dedication to pursuing the crypto wallet. Users of Robinhood can buy and sell multiple different cryptocurrencies, ranging from Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum and Ethereum Classic.

However, they are unable to send such currencies to a private wallet. The company holds users’ crypto to prevent the trade on decentralized exchanges or purchase of NFTs.

In January, a beta release of the wallet was announced, and currently it has 250,000 users.
