CashApp Founder Bob Lee stabbed to death in San Francisco


Tech executive and investor who worked on the Android and Cash apps, Bob Lee, has been stabbed to death in San Francisco, United States.

The 43-year-old founder was killed at 2:35am on Tuesday when officials were called to the 300 block of Main Street near the entrance of a high-rise, according to DailyMail on Wednesday.

When the officials arrived, they discovered him with evident stab wounds.

The police said in a statement, “ Officers rendered aid and summoned medics to the scene. The victim was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

“ Despite efforts by first responders and medical personnel, the victim succumbed to his injuries.”

Police said no arrests had been made in connection to Lee’s murder.

Lee had served as the chief product officer of San Francisco-based cryptocurrency company MobileCoin since Nov. 2021, according to his LinkedIn page.

Tributes from his coworkers began to pour in on Tuesday night, with MobileCoin’s CEO Joshua Goldbard calling Lee “a force of nature.”

“Bob was a force of nature. Helped to birth Android and CashApp into our world,” Goldbard told ABC7.

“Moby was his dream: a privacy-protecting wallet for the 21st Century. I will miss him every day.”
