A former director of the U.S. Mint is taking his talents to the virtual
Edmund Moy, the 38th director of the U.S. Mint
who led the agency from 2006 to 2011, has joined the board of advisers
of Coin.co, a New
York-based company that provides Bitcoin payment options to large
companies and organizations.
“I believe in the revolutionary technology of Bitcoin and in the
integral role of Coin.co providing customized bitcoin payment
solutions to large organizations,” Moy was quoted as saying in a
company release. “Coin.co has an outstanding team, a great service,
and growing momentum. Together, we will build a great company that
will profoundly change the stodgy payments industry.”
Moy has been outspoken on the topic of virtual currency over the
last year. He submitted to Moneynews.com an opinion piece touting virtual currency as a
potentially global currency in May, and then last August was the keynote speaker at Cryptolina, a virtual
currency conference in Raleigh, N.C.
Coin.co CEO Alex Waters said in the release that the company is
“truly honored” to have the former Mint director on board.
"The wealth of knowledge and experience that Ed brings to our
company is one-of-a-kind,” Waters said. “He is an invaluable resource
for an organization like Coin.co who looks to continue capturing
success in this still-emerging space—all while keeping operations
aligned with the changing regulatory landscape."
