We just can’t catch up with BitPay, only yesterday we wrote about service’s new HQ in Argentina and a fresh press release it became known about two new offices, one in New York and another in San Francisco.
Oh, in case you were wondering, I meant family game, not an economic term. Although, if BitPay goes on to conquer states and countries just like that, I am not envying their competition.
Eye of Beholder
For starters, both offices will serve as sales coordinators and support for the platform’s users, meaning merchants and, again, both of them will be under the watchful eye of the Eric Martindale, a Developer Evangelist of BitPay.
That term, actually, made me confused for a second there, but in general, it means that he will sing the Bitcoin gospels at different events like hackatons, conferences and other stuff, which involves explaining people what is Bitcoin and why it’s here.
Who and Where
For offices in San Francisco and New York, answer respectively John Dreyzehner together with Paige Freeman and Andy Goldstein.
Andy is Regional Sales Manager at BitPay with 15 years of experience at Visa, inc, where he held a position of Senior Development Leader in a group that was responsible for bringing IT solutions for their customers. Now, Andy will cover East coast of US and eastern part of maple leaf country.
John will obviously cover western part of US. Not only has he finished Ba.sc. in Financial Mathematics (Virginia University) but he also spends his spare time climbing rocks and rocking music.
Paige, the VP of Sales, is very enthusiastic about this step in BitPay’s spreading around US, stating that they are “looking forward to expanding into various markets both here in U.S. and internationally.” Well, the company doesn’t lack ambition, I can give them that.
Next is BitPay’s own private booth at Game Developers Conference and sponsorship of both upcoming Coin Summit and Inside Bitcoin. After everything said, I just can’t stop wondering - how the team of 31 people (HQ in Atlanta holds 22) has time for this?
