ZUG, Switzerland – November 2, 2020 – Bitcoin Association, the Switzerland-based global industry organisation that works to advance business with the Bitcoin SV blockchain and digital currency, today announces that it has hired Bryan Daugherty as the organisation’s first technical outreach specialist. Daugherty’s hire is part of the Association’s broader initiative to expand enterprise engagement and education around the benefits of building with the Bitcoin SV data network.
In the newly established role, Daugherty will work across a North America-wide remit, engaging business and enterprise leaders to educate them about the power of Bitcoin as a data network protocol, as well as the range of product offerings available across the Bitcoin SV ecosystem.
