Bitcoin Association announces: LatAm Ambassadors to further boost Bitcoin SV (BSV)

On the back of the recent appointments of its U.S., APAC and European Ambassadors, the Bitcoin Association is pleased to unveil its advocates for Argentina, Brazil and Panama as the word spreads about Bitcoin SV (BSV).

As the fastest growing blockchain ever, Bitcoin SV (BSV) is catching the eye of real-use developers across the globe. This increase in usage has led BSV’s average block sizes, average transaction per block count, and daily transaction count to rival and even surpass BTC. Why? BSV is also the only project that adheres to the original design of Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. In short, BSV is Bitcoin. 

Bitcoin Association President Jimmy Nguyen comments: “With such tangible growth on the BSV blockchain, the Bitcoin Association is taking a more micro focus for adoption. As it becomes increasingly clear that only BSV scales to realbusiness levels, we are now laser-focused on areas where we can help BSV development more directly in specific geographic regions, in native languages, and offer local representatives.”

Added to the roster are:
