NAC Foundation, LLC, creator of the digital currency AML BitCoin, announces today the appointment of Angela Knight CBE, as the Vice President for European Affairs. In this senior role with the company, Ms Knight will help guide European expansion and development of the AML Bitcoin, which launches internationally on October 1, 2017.
AML BitCoin is unique in the digital coin world. As its first name signifies, “AML” BitCoin holds the distinction of being the first digital currency which features patent-pending ‘Anti-Money Laundering’ algorithms into its structure. Unlike the vast number of anonymous cryptocurrencies which have been issued in the past few years, AML BitCoin has built-in features preventing use by terrorists and the criminal underworld. AML BitCoin’s compliance with existing anti-money laundering and KYC (know your customer) laws has stirred intense excitement in the coin from governments all around the world.
Marcus Andrade, Chief Executive Officer of NAC Foundation said,
“We are excited that Angela has agreed to become part of our expanding team as we look forward to the official launch of our coin. Angela brings an unrivalled knowledge of UK and European banking and finance as well as key political experience and counsel to our team.”
Angela Knight CBE said,
“I am delighted to be undertaking this role as an advisor to AML Bitcoin. It’s a hugely exciting time for digital currency and I see AML Bitcoin as being at the pinnacle of the technology, with its enhanced security and anti-money laundering capability.”
