Announcements | April 11, 2016 By:

BitPay has announced the appointment of Jim Aviles to its advisory board.

As a member of the BitPay board, he will be working with their Latin American manager Alberto Vega to support growth in the region.

“I joined BitPay because I find bitcoin technology compelling. I think it is going to greatly influence the way we transact and the way we use financial services. BitPay is a company that sees that bitcoin has a very relevant place in financial services, but they also see that bitcoin’s place has to be defined and nurtured. The company has brought in executive talent at all levels to develop bitcoin as a financial instrument and to find its applications for daily life. For me, BitPay is a wonderful combination of practical execution and strategic exploration. There simply are not many companies that offer this kind of opportunity,” said Aviles.

BitPay is a global bitcoin payment service provider.
