San Diego, CA — Airbitz announced today that Will Pangman is joining their team to help the Bitcoin mobile wallet startup grow its userbase and proliferate its message. Will brings his full sector knowledge, deep network, and relentless optimism to a company poised to capture the next wave of Bitcoin adoption.
For the past year, Will served as COO of the Bitcoin personal finance app, Tapeke, where he remains an advisor. He’s also a frequent guest on the World Crypto Network’s weekly live panel show, The Bitcoin Group. Will has contributed to the Bitcoin Foundation’s Education Committee, the College Cryptocurrency Network, and Digital Chamber’s Bitcoin Education Day on Capitol Hill. As a principled advocate of autonomy, edge-security, and privacy-by-default, he is committed to working with other industry leaders at the Open Bitcoin Privacy Project and Cryptocurrency Certification Consortium to develop standards that preserve Bitcoin as Satoshi envisioned at large scale.
As the founder of Bitcoin Milwaukee, a 150+ member community advocacy organization that conducted outreach and education campaigns, Will is known for his efforts spreading Bitcoin awareness across a wide range of demographics. The engagement strategies he spearheaded in southeastern Wisconsin were replicated by meetups and community groups all over North America. Will thrives outside of the echo chamber exposing new minds to the power of distributed networks and the implications of cryptocurrency on the Midwest Real podcast, The Rundown Live, David Seaman Hour, Tragedy and Hope, a TEDx talk, and others. His ability to reach diverse audiences on their wavelength and awaken their curiosity is an asset Airbitz is eager to leverage to deliver its technology stack to the masses.
Will shares, “For over a year now, I have been a huge admirer of the team Airbitz has assembled and the product they’ve built. Their commitment to values I hold dear has always given me confidence as a user, but their ability to invent and execute makes this group truly special. Airbitz is one of the most unsung yet solidly positioned Bitcoin companies. I am humbled to join this fantastic team and surging with excitement to help Airbitz realize its potential.”
Airbitz CEO Paul Puey remarks, “The Airbitz team is extremely excited to have Will join our team and lead our marketing efforts Will brings extensive experience in driving bitcoin education and awareness and has proven his ability by creating one of the most successful bitcoin meetups in the world in his home town of Milwaukee, WI.
