BitPay Opens European Headquarters in Amsterdam

BitPay, the world leader in business solutions for the Bitcoin digital currency, has officially opened its European Headquarters in Amsterdam. This office will handle sales, implementation and merchant support for BitPay’s 7,000 merchants in Europe, with the goal of acquiring and serving 30,000 merchants in Europe by the end of 2014.

Moe Levin has joined BitPay as the company’s European Director of Business Development. Moe speaks five languages and has several years of Bitcoin experience, most recently as a conference organizer in Amsterdam and Miami.

"Being Bitcoin ready is about more than accepting bitcoin, it's about being ready for the future," says Levin.

Pieter Poorthuis joins BitPay as a Senior Sales Engineer and is responsible for sales and customer implementations in the Eurozone. Pieter previously managed implementations for ING’s mobile payments products.

Marcel Roelants has also joined BitPay’s Board of Advisors. Marcel is a former General Manager of MasterCard in the Netherlands, and was previously Managing Director of General Electric in Belgium where he managed 170 people.

“As the world of payments is changing rapidly, BitPay is at the forefront offering technology and support to merchants,” says Roelants. “Establishing its headquarters in Amsterdam is a great way to be closer to its European customers.”

The addition of two employees in Amsterdam brings BitPay’s worldwide headcount to 33. BitPay is sponsoring the Dutch Bitcoin Meetup today, is exhibiting at the NextWeb conference on April 24th and 25th, and is a sponsor of the Bitcoin Foundation’s Bitcoin2014 conference in Amsterdam.

In addition to growing globally, BitPay has updated its look. BitPay is pleased to unveil a new brand identity, symbolized by the introduction of a new logo and website that signifies our growth and celebrates our culture of innovation.

“The launch of our new brand and logo aligns with our open-source culture,” said BitPay’s Co-Founder and CEO, Tony Gallippi. "It's also an exciting time in bitcoin space and with the opening of our new office in Amsterdam, we are looking to hire the world’s best developers to build the world’s best payment system."

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
