The world learns about #BitcoinIsle

Last week I was interviewed, alongside Giles Day from Tiffin, by BBC Jersey about Bitcoin and how it’s being used in Jersey as well as the potential future opportunities. I will try to get a copy of it up here but in the meantime, a full article has been produced by Ryan Morrison. This was very well received and immedieately started getting noticed by a huge amount of news sites (including front page on Engadget, Motherboard & Cnet).


It was also great to have our Treasury & Resources Minister comment on Bitcoin in such a supportive way:-

“[This] is a sector that could hold significant opportunities for Jersey.

“Our infrastructure of world-class financial services and digital expertise gives us the tools to be an early leader in the field. Innovation will be central to Jersey’s future prosperity.

“We are keen to support local businesses by helping to create a well-regulated and responsive environment for investment in the sector.”

– Senator Phillip Orzouf
