Digital Asset loses CTO as executive exodus continues 

More bad news for Digital Asset, the blockchain financial technology provider. The firm's CTO and Chief Information Officer, James Powell, has left after only six-months, reports CoinDesk. The departure comes two months after Digital Asset's announcement that its former CEO Blythe Masters stepped down from her role at the firm due to "personal reasons".

According to CoinDesk, Shaul Kfir, a founding member of Digital Asset, will take over Powell's role at the firm. Digital Asset has also hired Zohar Hod, a former sales executive at Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), the parent of the New York Stock Exchange, as its Chief Strategy Officer.
