Since getting involved in Bitcoin in 2012, Gregory Simon has been undeniably prolific in the community.

His purchase of a 0.3 acre plot of land in Nicaragua brought him into the spotlight earlier this year, and he has since become a founding member of the Nicaraguan Bitcoin Foundation which hopes to foster financial and social prosperity for the country’s population.

Gregory’s business history is impressive, having spent 14 years in equity sales for companies including Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan Chase. Since leaving the banking industry to travel the world in 2013, however, he has become highly active in Bitcoin, to which he now devotes the majority of his time.

A founding member of the Bitcoin association, Gregory has co-founded two Bitcoin enterprises this year, block chain innovator CryptoWerks and online marketplace!

He is also a principal organizer of the Dubai Bitcoin Conference, which is due to take place in December.

With so much going on, the future is indeed bright, and Cointelegraph caught up with Gregory to get more information on his new projects as well as his take on Bitcoin’s progress.
