Leah Wald, co-founder of Valkyrie Investments, has been appointed the new President and CEO of crypto investment company Cypherpunk Holdings (HODL.CA).

Wald has been a board member of Cypherpunk for nearly three years. She will take over the new role from current CEO Antanas Guoga, who will continue as the company’s Chairman. The statement said:

“Under Leah’s leadership, we believe Cypherpunk will surpass its limits in blockchain investment and expand its market impact.”

Notable investments include nearly 3 million shares of Animoca Brands and a recent purchase of $1 million worth of Solana (SOL) tokens. Additionally, the company holds a significant amount of Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin mining equipment, and investments in Chia Network and NGRAVE.

Cypherpunk’s stock surged over 20% following today’s announcement. The stock has risen about 5% yearly, with a market capitalization of approximately $12.5 million at the current exchange rate.
