The Swiss-based Bitcoin Association has named Patrick Prinz, CFA as its new Europe & Operations Manager. Mr. Prinz will serve to advance the growth of Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (SV) in Europe, and support the global needs of the association from his base in the Swiss town of Zug.
“With Patrick’s addition, we welcome to our team another high-caliber professional with international business experience," said Bitcoin Association Founding President Jimmy Nguyen. “Patrick will play a vital role in operational management as we grow our headquarters in Zug, Switzerland. He will also be a strong business voice for Bitcoin SV across Europe – with his financial services knowledge, effective communication skills, and passionate belief in Bitcoin’s true power.”
Mr. Prinz has experience in financial services and strategy consulting, with his last post a role as a senior investment advisor for a global asset management group. He is a strong advocate for Bitcoin SV as the original design for Bitcoin from its creator, Satoshi Nakamoto.
“Bitcoin SV is finally fulfilling the potential that initially excited me about Bitcoin many years ago – to achieve efficiencies as the single public data ledger and micropayment system for the world,” said Mr. Prinz. “I am thrilled to join Bitcoin Association to work with businesses and entrepreneurs to educate them on the transformative power which Bitcoin SV brings to the world.”
