On Tuesday, April 21, Brock Pierce has been elected chairman of the board of directors at the Bitcoin Foundation.

Pierce will now be working with newly appointed executive director Bruce Fenton.

“A lot of us believe in the foundation and we believe it can be effective at advocating on behalf of the industry. Some people might say there are aspects that are broken. I say it’s a lot harder to be part of the solution than the problem, that’s why I ran for the board,” said Brock Pierce.

Pierce was elected to the position by a 3-0 vote Tuesday, with board member Olivier Janssens abstaining.
