Bitcoin BCH is leading the rollout of the first Bitcoin Cash applications built with Emergent Coding technology. Hayden is also an educator and prominent figurehead in the Bitcoin Cash community. Through his YouTube channel, where he has amassed a significant following, he frequently commentates on peer-to-peer electronic cash.
Over the years, Hayden has organised regular events through the Brisbane and North Queensland Bitcoin Meetups, the annual Bitcoin Cash City conference (Townsville), where he has spoken on the role of cryptocurrencies in financial systems. Hayden is passionate about promoting Bitcoin Cash as the Bitcoin version which remains true to the original vision of P2P electronic cash.
Prior to founding Bitcoin BCH, Hayden entered the world of Bitcoin in mid-2016 while studying Information Technology at the University of Queensland. After realising Bitcoin was both a means to enable economic freedom and to undermine central banks, he went on to study the technology and fully immersed himself in it.
