A long-standing, active member of the Bitcoin SV community, in his own time, Zhou has made contributions to the open-source BitSV Python library, collaborated on several Bitcoin SV application development projects, as well as conducted Bitcoin Association-sponsored workshops and webinars on blockchain technology to educate fellow developers.

In his new role, Zhou will work alongside Bitcoin Association’s global team and China-based staff to engage with business, technology and government leaders across China, educating them about the benefits of building on the Bitcoin SV public ledger and the technical tools available for doing so, as well as the growing ecosystem of companies and products using its network. In addition to his role with Bitcoin Association, Zhou will also join nChain – a global blockchain research & development firm – as a software engineer, where he will be a part of the Bitcoin SV Infrastructure team.

“After being part of the Bitcoin SV community for several years, I’m delighted to have the opportunity to make my passion my profession and join Bitcoin Association as well as nChain,” said Zhou. “As the only blockchain which scales unbounded and offers the data capabilities businesses require, Bitcoin SV represents a major opportunity for enterprise-level development. I’m excited to start working with the business, government and developer communities across China to help them understand this potential and develop innovative solutions that leverage the unique capabilities of Bitcoin SV.”

The appointment of Zhou is the latest addition to a growing team of technical and business outreach professionals within Bitcoin Association, dedicated to improving enterprise engagement and increasing awareness of the capabilities of Bitcoin SV as a data network protocol.
