Tony Gallippi came to Bitcoin from working as a trader, when its exciting prospects caught his attention. Introduced to the phenomenon by friend Stephen Pair, the two would go on to found what has become one of the Bitcoin industry's household names: Bitpay. 

The company has expanded so rapidly that it now has offices in three locations internationally, regularly partners with big-name brands and even has Elizabeth Ploshay of the Bitcoin Foundation on its staff. 

With such a distinguished position in the Bitcoin framework, we caught up with Tony at Bitoin2014 in Amsterdam to ask how things were going, what's next and which innovations have caught his eye recently.
