The alliance seeks to raise awareness of Bitcoin in the country and promote its advance. During his tenure, Di Iorio organized Canada’s first Bitcoin conference and represented the alliance at several international conferences. He founded both the alliance as well as the Toronto Bitcoin Meetup. He will continue to support the organization in an advisory capacity.
Kyle Kemper, an existing board member of the alliance, will replace Di Iorio as executive director on an interim basis. His multidisciplinary background includes contributions to the Bitcoin Strategy Group and CAVIRTEX. He said that the alliance will try to maximize the opportunity presented by a dynamically evolving Bitcoin ecosystem.
