Michael Parsons, Bitcoin Advisor, Shaper, Educator and Presenter, BitcoinBytes

Michael Parsons is an independent Bitcoin Advisor, Entrepreneur and experienced (Worldwide & UK) Bitcoin Presenter and a founder member of the UK DCA (Digital Currency Association). Michael is also a UK qualified Chartered Accountant (FCA) and was previously a Banking Management Consultant for two of the ‘Big Four.’ (KPMG in Moscow & PwC in London).  Michael is the crypto/virtual currency advisor to the States of Alderney and was the first formal presenter of Bitcoin to a major UK clearing bank - Barclays Bank (HQ Canary Wharf) and Barclaycard (HQ Northampton) in 2012. Michael was asked and provided the first official presentation of Bitcoin to the UK Government (Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS)  in Victoria) in May 2013, attended by 50 senior civil servants from GCHQ, the Home Office, HMRC, SOCA and the Inteligence Services as reported in the Financial Times on May 13/14th. In the same year, Michael led the New Finance roundtable 'Bitcoin and Virtual Currencies' discussion which produced a document delivered to the UK No 10 Cabinet Office. Michael continues to discuss virtual currencies with UK government departments and regulators including HM Treasury and HMRC. Some current projects are part-or wholly confidential.  His Bitcoin and Blockchain knowledge is supported by 25 years experience of traditional banking, money and finance, starting at Credit Suisse First Boston, then travelling overseas to lead the start-up of, and design all the procedures for, a newly licensed bank in Dubai (Emirates Bank International) and then (upon return) restructuring an existing UK Bank (Moscow Narodny Bank Ltd). Both positions were as the Bank’s Chief Financial Officer.  In 1993, Parsons designed and introduced the first Western Bank accounting database system (Chart of Accounts) to Russia (Kemerovo, then Sberbank, Moscow), as it emerged from the former Soviet Union. Michael Parsons’ extensive operational and strategic banking/financial services experience and understanding gives him a unique perspective on the future application of the Bitcoin/Blockchain technology protocol and the emerging Bitcoin/Virtual Currencies/Blockchain financial services Ecosystem.
