It has the potential for ushering in mass consumer adoption in crypto. As an early supporter of our mission and respected visionary in the space, Draper is an incredible asset for our team’s success.”

Draper was an early investor in Sense Chat Labs’ parent company Sensay Inc., supporting the team’s mission to create tools for better human connection.

“Tim is among the most respected VCs in Silicon Valley and a major proponent for blockchain technology,” said John Schenk, CFO at Sense.Chat. “We’re delighted to have him on our board.”

Ben Sigman, CTO of Sense.Chat, was ecstatic saying, “We are very excited to have Tim’s support and advice. He’s been a massively important and pivotal figure in technology, and recently in the blockchain. He’s everything we want to emulate in our leadership – he’s creative, supportive, and passionate.”

In March, Sense Chat Labs released the first decentralized chat and video messenger with a digital wallet, Sense.Chat. Available now on Apple iOS and Android, the Sense.Chat Encryption Protocol uses advanced cryptography combined with the EOS blockchain to deliver messages so that users will be able to maintain their privacy in an unparalleled, highly secure application.
