Bitcoin Association appoints APAC ambassadors to advance Bitcoin SV
Bitcoin Association announces its new global Ambassador program, appointing notable representatives who will contribute their time to advance Bitcoin SV (BSV) in their specific countries. The Ambassador program is the next step in expansion of Bitcoin Association’s worldwide activities for BSV.
Bitcoin Association is the global industry organization for the business of Bitcoin. It supports BSV as the only coin with a blockchain that significantly scales (now), has robust utility (now), and is committed to a set-in-stone protocol for developers to build on. BSV is also the only project that adheres to the original design of Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. In short, BSV is Bitcoin.
Recently, BSV application development has exploded, especially in the Asia Pacific region, to take advantage of BSV’s greater data capacity and micropayments capability. Growing usage has led BSV’s average block sizes and average transaction per block count to regularly surpass BTC.
Bitcoin Association President Jimmy Nguyen comments: “With BSV’s ecosystem expanding so quickly, now is the ideal time for us to take BSV activities in Asia Pacific to another level with these Ambassadors. Our Ambassadors are leaders in their country’s blockchain and technology industries, and we look forward to their contributions to make BSV the global enterprise blockchain.”
