The Bitcoin Association is a fully-fledged not-for-profit group, focused on championing the role of Bitcoin via education and engagement with citizens, media and regulators.
According to Mr. Simon in a recent statement on the appointment, “I strongly believe in the potential for Bitcoin and blockchain distributed ledger technology to bring greater transparency and fairness to our society beyond just currency and financial markets.”
“I turn over the reins of the Bitcoin Association to Greg with great confidence. His passion for the technology and leadership skills will result in continuing our efforts to build a strong organization and increasing membership. I’m happy to help Greg and the team on an ongoing basis personally or in my new role at the Bitcoin Foundation,” added Mr. Fenton in an accompanying statement.
