The Government of Antigua and Barbuda appointed Calvin Ayre to the role of special economic envoy advising on technological developments in cryptocurrency and bitcoin.

Antigua and Barbuda develop bitcoin

Ayre will advise the Government on the effective implementation of new technological developments in cryptocurrency and bitcoin which have been adopted by leading companies in the United States, Australia, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, Canada, China and the United Kingdom. He has already invested heavily in bitcoin blockchain core technology and his e-Com technology processes more bitcoin transactions than any other platform in the world today.

As it did in offshore banking and internet gaming in the 1990s, the government of Antigua and Barbuda anticipates becoming an early leader in the Caribbean to compete in the international community in the provision of a legal platform for world-wide private sector activity utilising blockchain technology.

In addition to the work that his companies have done in research and development of blockchain technology and bitcoin, Ayre has a wealth of knowledge in the internet gaming sector having pioneered the development of software support for online gaming and subsequently establishing his own gaming operations under the popular Bodog brand.
