Rudy Bouwman

Rudy Bouwman

CMO and Co-Founder of the DigiByte Awareness Team (DGBAT)

@RudyBouwman

DGBAT was founded in May 2018 to power the marketing for DigiByte. DGBAT is a voluntary community-driven project to create awareness and encourage adoption by marketing & PR, outreach and social media. Rudy’s team has secured listings and integrations on exchanges, as well as creating 3rd party wallets and payment processing solutions.

As well as reaching out to companies that are now built on DigiByte technology, DGBAT is also very active on the spectrum of social media platforms. Rudy’s goal is to get DigiByte the value and recognition it deserves, at least in the top 5-10 cryptocurrencies.

Rudy’s work for DigiByte is voluntary; he holds the full-time position of Director and co-shareholder of RLS International BV, a Multi-Vendor IT Service Provider in Europe.

After his studies in Technical Informatics, he completed his education in Logistics and Middle- & Senior management at the Institute of Social Sciences in The Netherlands. Rudy lives in a small village between Amsterdam and Utrecht. He has been married for over 26 years and has a son (21) and daughter (19).

“After hearing about Blockchain Technology in 2017 I was looking into hundreds of projects and found there are too many non-working ICO and scam projects. But after discovering DigiByte and learning about the amazing team behind the project, I also learned that DigiByte wasn’t an ICO but its own UTXO blockchain. I was so impressed by the amazing features like security, speed, low fees and the true decentralisation, I could not understand why this project was not in the top 5 already. But because of not being an ICO and with no company behind it, the one thing missing was money and marketing. That’s why DGBAT was founded and managed to get from place 60+ to 30+ in a very short time. “

@jaredctate

DigiByte is a public, rapidly growing and highly decentralised 4-year-old blockchain. DigiBytes are digital assets that cannot be destroyed, counterfeited or hacked, making them ideal for protecting objects of value like currency, information, property or important digital data.

DigiBytes can be sent over the DigiByte Blockchain and forever recorded on an immutable, decentralised public ledger on thousands of computers around the planet. After 4 years of consistent, committed development, rapid community growth and new use cases, the DigiByte Blockchain has become the longest, fastest and most secure UTXO blockchain in existence.

Jared has been involved with Bitcoin since 2012. In autumn of 2013, he decided to make several improvements to the Bitcoin core protocol, which culminated in the launch of DigiByte on January 10th, 2014. DigiByte has pioneered many blockchain enhancements such has DigiShield, MultiShield & MultiAlgo, all of which have now been implemented by many other blockchains. DigiByte was also the first major blockchain to adopt SegWit.
