  • Significant progress in the public policy arena, including advisory work during the drafting phase of the landmark Digital Assets Business Bill 2020 in Antigua & Barbuda, which introduced a comprehensive legislative and regulatory framework to govern businesses within its jurisdiction operating in the digital asset space.

Speaking on today’s release, Bitcoin Association Founding President Jimmy Nguyen, said:

‘The release of our 2020 annual report today illustrates the great strides that Bitcoin Association and Bitcoin SV was able to take against the backdrop of an extremely challenging year for everyone. In particular, the work that the Association has undertaken and the progress made in the education, developer, public policy and media spaces is hugely encouraging, as is the overall maturation of businesses across the Bitcoin SV ecosystem. As seen throughout the report, 2020 was a hugely important year for both Bitcoin Association and Bitcoin SV – one largely focused on laying important foundations needed for further progress and the next phase of BSV utility growth in 2021.’
