The Bitcoin Alliance of Canada is pleased to announce the creation of a new position designed to serve its growing member base: Program Coordinator. The Program Coordinator will tend to matters of membership, communications, and social media; ensuring members are kept up to date with and involved in the Alliance's ongoing activities and projects.
For Immediate Release
The Bitcoin Alliance of Canada, a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to researching, developing, and championing bitcoin in Canada, will appear to give evidence before the Canadian Senate’s Standing Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce on Thursday, October 2, 2014. The proceedings can be viewed live on the Canadian Senate’s website.
As a digital investigator who spent years tracking cyber criminals online, and as someone who has launched a Bitcoin security consulting company, I've been contacted a number of times by victims of digital ransom, looking for ways out. The story is always the same: they see a warning on their computer screen telling them that their files are encrypted, and unless they pay a hefty ransom (with Bitcoin) before the clock runs out, they will never gain access to their files again.
Now that I work full-time at Decentral in Toronto, I see dozens of these victims come in...
It is with pleasure that I announce the five new directors for the Bitcoin Alliance of Canada.
