About Michael Rihani

I work as the Bitcoin Product Lead at Cash App. I am passionate about individual liberty, economic freedom, sustainable energy, and delivering happiness. I have been an entrepreneur since I was 5 years old and I enjoy starting and building consumer internet companies.

Cash App is redefining the world’s relationship with money by making it more relatable, instantly available, and universally accessible.

I love my family and friends more than my work.
