According to the cryptocurrency exchange, his family, and the authorities, Bob Lee, a technology executive who founded Cash App and served as MobileCoin’s chief product officer, was fatally stabbed in San Francisco early on Tuesday.

According to a press release from the San Francisco Police Department, officers went to a report of a stabbing on Main Street at 2:35 a.m. on Tuesday and discovered a 43-year-old man with what appeared to be stab wounds. At a hospital, the deceased passed away.

Although the deceased was unidentified by the police, MobileCoin told CBS News that Lee had passed away.

According to MobileCoin CEO Josh Goldbard, “our dear friend and colleague, Bob Lee, passed away yesterday at the age of 43, survived by a loving family and collection of close friends and collaborators.”

According to Goldbard, “Bob was a dynamo, a force of nature.” “Bob was the real deal.” He was a dreamer as a kid who created anything, no matter how absurd, into the world that is currently being born.

In a Facebook message, Lee’s father announced his son’s passing.

Rick Lee posted, “I just lost my best friend.”

According to Goldbard, Lee joined MobileCoin as an early stage investor and advisor before rising to the position of chief product officer and aiding in the Moby app’s debut. When Square, a provider of online payments, unveiled the 2013 version of Cash App, Lee served as its chief technology officer.

There were no specifics about the events surrounding the stabbing in the police statement.

“This is a current, open inquiry. Officer Niccole Pacchetti, a public information officer, stated in an email: “For that reason, we are not releasing further details. “We’ll let you know when more information is available,”

According to CBS Bay Area, Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Square (now called Block), reacted to the news in a post early on Wednesday on the decentralized social media platform Nostr.

Heartbreaking, said Dorsey. Bob helped make Square and Cash App possible.

The case has not resulted in any arrests, and San Francisco officers have not provided any information regarding any potential suspects.

On Tuesday night, a deluge of condolences poured in on Twitter. His @crazybob Twitter account was used by many.
