ZUG, Switzerland – 22 July, 2020 – Bitcoin Association, the Switzerland-based global industry organization that works to advance business on the Bitcoin SV blockchain, today announces the formation and launch of a Bitcoin SV Developer Zone in partnership with Chinese Software Developer Network (CSDN). The Zone will provide their 31 million users a dedicated open learning platform to learn about working on the Bitcoin SV blockchain.
