We’ve written a few times about Edmund C. Moy, the former Director of the United States Mint who has seemingly taken a liking to bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general.
Last month, Moy notable said via social media that, “It’s Time Banks Got Competition. Time for Cryptocurrencies,” further pushing him into a noble status in the cryptocurrency community.
And now he’s even doing public speaking at a Bitcoin expo. As first pointed out by bitcoin website CoinTelegraph, Moy will be serving as the keynote speaker at the ‘Cryptolina‘ conference that’s taking place from August 15-16th in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Event organizer Faruk Okcetin had the following to say in a press announcement:
“This is a game-changer. Ed Moy is widely respected among the finance and exchange industry, and is among the highest level officials yet to recognize both the future and inevitability of cryptocurrency. The Carolinas are thrilled to be hosting Mr. Moy’s first appearance at a Bitcoin conference.”
Other speakers at the event include Elizabeth Ploshay of BitPay and the Bitcoin Foundation, and angel investor Mark Easley.
As one would come to expect at a bitcoin conference, Cryptolina takes a look at today’s issues in the cryptocurrency community on several fronts along with the future.
Edmund C. Moy was nominated by President George W. Bush as the Director of the United States mint in 2006, and was sworn in the same year. The role lasted until 2011.
