Refining Bitcoin Association: Learning from OpenAI and WorldCoin
The Bitcoin Association (now BSV Blockchain Association) has undergone various changes over the years, seemingly reactive to events as it finds its identity and purpose under each change in leadership. As someone who’s worked with them, for some of that time, I understand the issues intimately.
Learning from OpenAI and WorldCoin
Upon reflection, there’s much the Bitcoin Association can learn from organizations like the IEEE, Linux Foundation, and OpenAI Labs to bridge this gap. Sam Altman, founder of OpenAI Labs, provides a good “leadership: example for the association: he runs a non-profit, is mission-driven, and is building a reputation for working well with regulators.
Regulatory Compliance and AI Technology
The crypto and blockchain industry faces issues with regulatory compliance due to its focus on making money rather than productivity. AI technology such as ChatGPT emphasizes productivity by saving time through automation.
Aligning with Craig Wright's Vision
To better position itself within the market, the Bitcoin Association should align more closely with Craig Wright's vision of being a “steward of the Bitcoin protocol.”
WorldCoin: Inspiration for the Bitcoin Association
One example worth exploring is WorldCoin, another offshoot of Sam Altman's ideas. WorldCoin aims to create an open-source protocol supported by a global community that expands participation in and access to the global economy. This strategy could serve as inspiration for the Bitcoin Association as it redefines itself - focusing on creating accessible protocols while fostering collaboration among diverse groups of developers, economists, technologists, and others committed to expanding economic opportunities globally.
By implementing a similar strategy as WorldCoin, from a marketing and growth perspective, the Bitcoin Association can position itself to become a steward of the Bitcoin protocol while fostering collaboration among diverse groups of individuals committed to expanding economic opportunities globally.
