  • Moore, who confirmed the move, joined the crypto payments firm from Paysafe Group in September 2022. Prior to this, he enjoyed lengthy stints with traditional finance giants Deutsche Bank (DB) and Citi (C).

    He’s not the only senior departure from BCB, whose clients include Fireblocks, Galaxy, Gemini, Huobi and Kraken, in recent months. His planned exit follows that of Noah Sharp, the former deputy CEO. Sharp quit in June after BCB ended its planned acquisition of Germany’s Sutor Bank, citing regulatory delays and market conditions.

    On Tuesday, Sharp said in a LinkedIn post he had joined banking platform Vodeno as CEO.
