“Their combined role will be to assure traders and investors interested in growing their wealth with cryptocurrency that as Bittrex Global expands to Bermuda, it still adheres to the highest levels of compliance and safety.

“Siegfried Herzog remains as the CCO of Bittrex Global in Liechtenstein, and he will work closely with the Bermuda team. Jeff’s appointment aims to lead the way for the industry towards greater accountability to potential investors as the cryptocurrency asset class matures.

“He holds a MSc in Criminology from the University of Leicester. In March 2020 he was selected as a Edward S. Mason Fellow at Harvard. Jeff has volunteered on several non-profit boards in Bermuda and is currently a member of ACAMS, the Institute of Directors and the Association of Bermuda Compliance Officers.

Bittrex Global’s COO/CFO Stephen Stonberg said, “The cryptocurrency industry has come a long way in the last decade in terms of credibility and mainstream acceptance, however much work remains to be done before it fully reaches its potential.

“Jeff Baron’s appointment to the role of CCO is testimony to the high priority on compliance and regulation that the team at Bittrex Global place in providing assurances to potential retail and institutional investors interested in this sector.”
