The originator of Cash App is no more. Police say that early on Tuesday morning in San Francisco, tech executive Bob Lee was fatally stabbed. The CashApp payment app, utilised in the UK and the US, was first launched in 2013 by the company.

According to a news release from the San Francisco Police Department, officers responded to a report of a stabbing on Main Street at 2:35 a.m. on Tuesday and discovered a 43-year-old man who appeared to have been stabbed. He later passed away at a hospital.

Josh Goldbard, the CEO of MobileCoin, the organisation Lee was employed by, confirmed Lee's passing. The CEO of MobileCoin released a statement saying, "Our dear friend and colleague, Bob Lee, passed away yesterday at the age of 43, and is survived by a loving family and a host of close friends and associates."

"Bob was a powerhouse, an unstoppable force. Bob was the real deal. He was made for the world that is about to be born, he was a child of dreams, and he made everything he imagined come true, no matter how crazy it was. Bob made an influence that will continue well beyond his brief time on earth, from his significant contributions to Android at Google to his role as Square's first CTO, during which he also created CashApp and collaborated with us on MobileCoin," he said.

Before becoming a product manager and aiding in the creation of the Moby app, Lee joined MobileCoin as an early stage investor and advisor. The CashApp payment app, utilised in the UK and the US, was introduced in 2013 by the company. In addition to creating Cash App and serving as CTO of payments platform Square, which has subsequently been rebranded Block, Lee has been employed by MobileCoin since 2021.

The San Francisco police have not disclosed any information on the potential culprits, and no arrests have been made in the case. 

"This is a live, ongoing investigation. Because of this, we won't be sharing any more details, wrote Officer Niccole Pacchetti, public information officer, in an email. "When additional information becomes available, we will let you know,"
