Samson Mow Bio

Samson Mow is known for his double role as the Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) at Blockstream and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Pixelmatic. Blockstream, a prominent blockchain technology provider, and Pixelmatic, a social gaming company, both benefit from Samson’s outstanding leadership.

Blockchain and Gaming Expertise

In 2011, Samson founded Pixelmatic to create captivating and highly interactive games that foster new social connections. His company, Blockstream, is a leader in blockchain technologies at the vanguard of cryptography and distributed systems work.

Before these roles, Samson held a key position at BTCC, one of the world’s largest Bitcoin exchanges and mining pools. As the Chief Operating Officer (COO), he was responsible for the company’s daily operations, with a direct hand in supervising the exchange and mining pool businesses.

A Track Record of Success

Before BTCC, Samson had a noteworthy tenure at Ubisoft as a production and executive producer-director. His role was instrumental in Ubisoft’s expansion into Asian markets, particularly for web-based, social, and mobile games.

Among his achievements was the successful development and live operations of the cross-platform MMO strategy game “Might & Magic: Heroes Kingdoms” in Asia. He also managed the social games “Castle & Co” and “The Smurfs & Co”. The latter game is Ubisoft’s most successful social game, amassing over 10 million users through organic growth.

Tech Start-Up and Industry Thought-Leader

Before his time at Ubisoft, Samson was in charge of business development and operations at Sitemasher, a Vancouver-based start-up. The company, which developed a SaaS platform for building websites and apps, won Microsoft’s 2008 Blue Sky Innovation Excellence Award. Salesforce.com later acquired Sitemasher for US$20 million and rebranded it as Site.com.

Samson holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Simon Fraser University in Canada.
