Four Executives Appointed By AML BitCoinbr>
Four new executives have been appointed by AML BitCoin, a know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) compliant cryptocurrency.
Japheth Dillman is the chief strategy officer; Jon Sczder, chief technology officer; Angela Knight CBE, vice president of European Affairs; and Carlos De La Guardia, vice president of Latin America Affairs. All will report to Marcus Andrade, AML BitCoin’s founder and chief executive officer.
In their new roles, each of the executives will advance the AML-KYC-compliant cryptocurrency in international expansion and development. AML BitCoin’s Initial Coin Offering (ICO) opened for public sale on Oct. 6 and is now accepting every form of currency, both fiat and crypto.
“Our new hires bring diverse expertise and deep technological knowledge to AML BitCoin, a combination that will help foster our growth internationally,” Andrade said. “Our ICO is only the beginning of AML BitCoin as we continue to attract international interest. We are on the cusp of unprecedented cryptocurrency partnerships, and each of these new executives will play a crucial rule in AML BitCoin’s success.”
Chief Strategy Officer Dillman has founded numerous startups in industries such as virtual reality, gaming, hardware devices, and even the famous YetiZen accelerator, which saw over 40 successful companies flourish under his wing. He also advises numerous blockchain companies going through their ICO phases in his role as managing partner at Block Bits Capital. Dillman recently helped craft a new policy in China that enables funds to transfer Chinese currency to USD and heads up new ICO initiatives in San Francisco.
“I’m thrilled with the opportunity to share my knowledge of the blockchain market and aid in the development of a technology I truly believe in,” Dillman said. “I am confident that we will see AML BitCoin create a drastic shift in the way investors think about cryptocurrency, and I look forward being a part of this technological advancement.”
Chief Technology Officer Sczder is an engineer and consultant, having worked with companies ranging from two-man startups to the likes of Samsung, The Clorox Company, and other Fortune 500 companies. Sczder has also worked at Research in Motion, hi5 Networks, Mofactor, and Digital Chocolate.
