BrewDog UK’s Martin Dempster: Bitcoin SV provides clarity

Businesses want to plan out their future with confidence, and to do that they need to reduce as many variables as possible. BrewDog has chosen to support Bitcoin SV (BSV) for that reason, because of the clear, stable development plan that it’s development team has laid out.

Martin Dempster, VP of Innovation for BrewDog UK, joined CoinGeek’s Rebecca Liggero to discuss why they’ve chosen to work with BSV. His excitement for the BSV project is overflowing. “I’m really excited just to continue on this journey about how we can explore and accept cryptocurrencies with BrewDog,” he said.

The UK brewery was an early adopter of BSV. They’ve been accepting the only Bitcoin to follow the original vision of Satoshi since the November 2018 hard fork that saw it split off from Bitcoin Cash (BCHABC) and haven’t looked back since, believing in its ability to provide an easy to use and cheap payment system.

What helps BrewDog believe in BSV is just how stable and clear the plan forward is. Dempter said, “I think it’s just really good that there’s clarity now, clarity of vision I think is very important. Hopefully it’s a really good springboard into the future.”

Other altcoins are still playing with their protocols, unsure of what their plan will be a few months from now, never mind years down the road. That won’t cut it for business planning. BSV is ready to help companies move into the crypto space now with certainty. “I think it’s really important because we all know and understand that this technology is going to change the way that we do business into the future,” Dempster said.

Having a clear plan now, and the opportunity to get serious about development, is the recipe for future success. “We don’t know quite what that’s going to look like in 10 or 20 years, but we know its going to happen, so I think for us to develop competency in this area is really important, and that will allow us to really move quickly when the time is right,” Dempster concluded.

Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
