This week, the Founding President of the Bitcoin Association Jimmy Nguyen is back with the latest developments in the Bitcoin SV ecosystem. For this episode, Jimmy was in the blockchain island of Malta for the Malta AI and Blockchain Summit. Jimmy and Dr. Craig Wright were among the guest speakers at the event, addressing big data on BSV and why Bitcoin is meant to be honest money respectively.
The Bitcoin Association recently held its first BSV: Bitcoin for Business event, one in a series of events aimed at educating business executives about why BSV is the best blockchain network for their enterprise needs. The first event was held in Tokyo, Japan, and was hosted by Jerry David Chan, the Bitcoin Association regional manager for Japan and South Korea.
The event was a huge success, with over 60 business representatives from major companies, crypto exchanges and media attending. Dr. Craig Wright graced the event, talking about the history of Bitcoin, why Bitcoin was meant to bring more honesty to the world, how the audit trails on the blockchain can eliminate corruption and more.
Jimmy revealed that the Bitcoin Association is the new proud sponsor of the Metanet Society at Cambridge University. The sponsorship will help the development of Bitcoin SV in the prestigious institution. The society is led by Robin Kohze, a BSV enthusiast whose application Hive took second place at the Bitcoin Association Virtual Hackathon in Seoul.
The first event by the Metanet Society was held in October, with Dr. Wright and Jimmy being the featured speakers. After his talk, Satoshi joined the students for a drink, with some students being the lucky recipients of an autographed copy of the Bitcoin whitepaper from Satoshi.
