The Bitcoin Association has named two new ambassadors to increase growth in its Asia market. Masumi Hamahira will be based in Malaysia, and Jeff Chen will be based in Singapore. The pair are the fifth and sixth Asian ambassadors for the Swiss-based Association, and bring the total number of global ambassadors to 20.

Mr. Hamahira is a veteran financial executive, having spent 21 years with the world’s fifth-largest bank, MUFG in Malaysia. His last position was as Executive Advisor for the Islamic Banking Window, and he is proficient in bringing blockchain technology to traditional markets.

Mr. Chen comes to Bitcoin Association from Maxthon, a web browser he was founder and CEO of. He has a long history working in internet technology, and is also developing a new domain registry for blockchain-based internet.
