The Marshall Islands, where XtreamForex is based out, has recently pushed ahead with issuing its own legal cryptocurrency, the Sovereign (SOV), which will be circulated along with the USD. The effort constitutes the first legal crypto tender that a country has implemented, with the Pacific island nation distributing SOV directly to its citizenry.

His most recent promotion caps off an eight-year career with the group and will now serve an integral role whilst continuing to be based out of London.
