AML BitCoin, a virtual cryptocurrency that meets the requirements of anti-money laundering Know Your Customer (AML-KYC) laws, with anti-terrorism and theft-resistant features designed into the coin’s code, has revealed that four new members of management have been brought on board. The new members, who are tasked with the international roll-out and promotion of the cryptocurrency, are Chief Strategy Officer Japheth Dillman, Chief Technology Officer Jon Sczder, Vice President of European Affairs Angela Knight CBE, and Vice President of Latin American Affairs Carlos De La Guardia. All four new members bring exceptional experience and a unique skill set to AML BitCoin.
"With their distinct and wide-ranging knowledge and technical know-how, our new hires will further the international growth of our project," said Marcus Andrade, CEO of NAC Foundation, the creator of AML BitCoin. "Our ICO has caught the eye of the international community, and has brought us to the verge of never-before-seen collaborations in the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Going forward each of our new team members will play an essential part in our success."
Japheth Dillman, who was brought in as Chief Strategy Officer, has been involved in various capacities in VR/AR and gaming startups, including the YetiZen accelerator (which has helped more than 40 companies blossom and prosper). A renowned conference speaker, Dillman holds annual seminars, conferences and workshops that attraact thousands of developers. In his capacity as managing partner at Block Bits Capital, he is also an active advisor to blockchain companies on ICOs.
"I'm delighted to be able to apply my blockchain expertise to promote a technology that I believe will be the wave of the future," commented Dillman. "I'm convinced that AML BitCoin will cause a sea change in the investors' attitude to cryptocurrency, and I relish the opportunity to be associated with such a momentous innovation."
Jon Sczder, the new Chief Technology Officer, has extensive experience as a consultant and engineer. His track record includes everything from Fortune 500 companies such as The Clorox Company and Samsung, to small startups with just a few employees. He was also heavily involved in hi5 Networks, Digital Chocolate, Research in Motion and MoFactor.
Business leader and seasoned politician Angela Knight will take the reins as Vice President of European Affairs. At present, she is the chairwoman of Tilman Brewin Dolphin, an asset management firm, and a non-executive director of Arbuthnot Latham Ltd and TPICAP plc. In the past, she worked as the chief executive of Energy UK and the British Bankers' Association (BBA), after moving from her position as the CEO of APCIMS (Association of Private Client Investment Managers and Stockbrokers).
Carlos De La Guardia has been appointed as Vice President of Latin American Affairs. De La Guardia brings to his role a background in marketing at companies such as Johnson & Johnson and Bristol-Myers Squibb, and experience in government affairs gained during his time as Charge d’Affaires and Minister Counsellor/Deputy Chief of Mission at the Embassy of Panama in Washington, D.C. He is currently an honorary chair for the International Studies Council of the Corcoran Gallery of Arts in Washington, D.C.
The AML BitCoin is an innovation of the NAC Foundation, headed by Marcus Andrade. Working on a privately regulated public blockchain, the AML BitCoin uses a biometric identification system called the Digital Identity Trust Network (DTN) to authenticate AML BitCoin owners. This ensures that only persons with a certified digital personal identity can use the cryptocurrency, and makes it possible to identify and check suspicious transactions and individuals. These improvements make AML BitCoin a secure and traceable coin, alleviating many of the concerns of the financial sector regarding cryptocurrencies. With these barriers removed, the AML BitCoin is poised to expand the use of cryptocurrencies by financial institutions and governments. The new AML BitCoin team members are perfectly placed to leverage their business acumen and political contacts to promote this new, safer cryptocurrency.

These can later be exchanged 1:1 for AML BitCoin when they pass KYC/AML and Biometric identity verification ahead of the platform launches.
