Head of Bitcoin Cash Australia. Being a post-graduate academic, and backed by years of industry research in internet security, and cryptographic applications, Eli became fascinated in Bitcoin when he stumbled upon Satoshi’s whitepaper in 2012 and began to study the technology in great depth. Towards the end of 2015 Eli started to become actively involved in the Bitcoin community itself, partaking and driving discussions, particularly concerning the scaling debate. A strong advocate of proven on-chain scaling, yet not opposed to second layer solutions either, Eli remains an advocate for Bitcoin as frictionless electronic cash.
