What the Bitcoin Association Leadership Had to Say
According to Jimmy Nguyen the Bitcoin Association president, Asia is a region where there has been a growing interest in Bitcoin SV. He said that he believed this was the right time for them to expand in the region and accelerate their outreach to developers and enterprises. Special attention was given to Singapore and Malaysia, which are countries showing the most promise.
The association’s president noted that Hamahira and Chen had made huge contributions to the Bitcoin SV ecosystem. He added that they were firm believers in the benefit the world could gain from the use of a single public and scalable blockchain. As leaders in their areas of expertise, he was confident that adding them as global ambassadors of the association would have a positive impact on the growth of Bitcoin SV.
The Bitcoin SV was formed from a hard fork of Bitcoin Cash, which was formed because of a Bitcoin hard fork. Its main selling point is that it offers massive scalability compared to the other hard forks of the Bitcoin blockchain. It aims to find use cases outside of spot trading for the blockchain and cryptocurrencies. In general, any project working to promote blockchain technology is a win for the crypto world. With over 90% of the world still to interact with the blockchain, there is a lot of room for growth.
