Digital asset protection technology company Coincover has appointed Katharine Wooller as business unit director.

The news concludes a year of tremendous growth for the company, just months after Cardiff-based Coincover launched its new staking technology and exclusive partnership with Pranksy’s NFTboxes.

Wooller has spent the majority of her career working for cutting-edge startups, predominantly in FinTech. With five years in crypto, this is her fourth blockchain business. She has won several awards for her work and co-authored numerous books, cementing her status as an industry expert. 

In her new role, Wooller will lead Coincover’s business unit, focusing on the consumer side. Key responsibilities include demonstrating the firm’s commitment to protecting users and customers from hackers and human error. 

“I am delighted to be joining the Coincover team, and at such a pivotal time,” she said. “As a passionate advocate for crypto and blockchain, it’s been a privilege for me to be considered a subject matter expert on these technologies across a plethora of industries. 

“In the wake of a challenging year for the market, I am excited to build on this momentum while the pace of change is supersonic.

“I have been helping startup teams successfully build their companies for two decades, so I’m pleased to be able to do this with even more focus moving forward.
