Stepping into his place as Executive Director is the Foundation’s General Counsel, Mr. Patrick Murck. This will also leave open a space for the General Counsel position at the Foundation.

“Leading the Bitcoin Foundation has been a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Patrick Murck adds, “Two years is a lifetime in Bitcoin and we’ve come a long way from where we began. And yet, there is still so much ahead of us. I thank Jon for his service and am honored to receive this appointment.
