Circle, the payments company that operates stablecoin USDC and equity crowdfunding platform SeedInvest, has named Devron Brown as its senior director for global policy, according to a tweet posted by Circle’s Dante Disparte.
Brown started in September, according to his LinkedIn profile.
CORRECTION (Oct. 1, 14:15 UTC): An earlier version of this story mistakenly said Circle still operates the Poloniex crypto exchange. Circle sold Poloniex in 2019.
