Global industry organization Bitcoin Association has appointed Alex Speirs as its Head of Communications.

Bitcoin Association brings together merchants, exchanges, application developers, enterprises, miners and others in the bitcoin ecosystem to advance the growth of bCommerce (Bitcoin commerce). The association supports Bitcoin SV (BSV) as the original bitcoin, with a stable protocol and scaling roadmap to become the world’s new money and global public blockchain for enterprise.

Speirs joins Bitcoin Association after spending 3 years as the Editor-in-Chief for the Legal 500’s GC magazine, the world’s largest publication for in-house and corporate counsel. His prior roles include serving for 5 years as the Editor-in-Chief for 2on4 Sports, in addition to experience working as a business journalist for the New Zealand Herald and thinktank NZ Inc.

As Head of Communications, Speirs will lead the association’s internal and external communications, including content strategy, public affairs and relations, and executive communications.

“It’s certainly an exciting time to be joining Bitcoin Association,” said Speirs. “The Bitcoin SV ecosystem has reached an inflection point and the opportunities for businesses and enterprises alike only stand to grow. I look forward to working with Jimmy and the team as we work to significantly increase content and communications outreach, in multiple languages, to educate business, developer, consumer, investment and government audiences about BSV’s potential.”

Jimmy Nguyen, Founding President of Bitcoin Association, said that as Bitcoin SV rapidly rises as the blockchain for business, the Bitcoin Association continues to expand their team of experienced professionals in order to support their ever-growing membership and ecosystem.

“One of the Bitcoin SV ecosystem’s advantages is strength of message,” said Nguyen. “Hiring Alex as our first Head of Communications is another big addition to that strength, as we build a truly global organisation that will help bitcoin’s original design – living now as Bitcoin SV – to finally fulfil its potential.”
