Who is Jimmy Nguyen?

Jimmy Nguyen is one of the world’s leading Bitcoin advocates. He is a renowned and sought-after public orator, who speaks about Bitcoin and blockchain technology at major events across the world. He is also a frequent commentator for online, televised and print media.

Jimmy is a global advocate for Bitcoin SV (BSV). BSV is the rebirth of the original Bitcoin, designed to fulfill the Satoshi Vision (of Bitcoin’s mysterious founder Satoshi Nakamoto). Emerging from the contentious November 15, 2018 hard fork of the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network, BSV now stands as its own chain and coin – ready to be the world’s new money and global public blockchain for enterprises.

Jimmy has served as CEO of nChain Group, the worldwide leader in research and development of blockchain technologies, and currently chairs its Strategic Advisory Board.

Jimmy is Founding President of the Bitcoin Association, the first-ever organization dedicated to advance the business of Bitcoin. The association backs Bitcoin SV, and brings together developers, merchants, exchanges, miners and other Bitcoin network participants. Jimmy heads the industry group as it provides global support for Bitcoin SV, as the key to long-term financial success for all participants in the inter-related Bitcoin ecosystem.

With 21 years of experience as an intellectual property and digital technology lawyer, Jimmy is well-suited to support enterprise-level adoption of Bitcoin technology. Over the course of his private practice career, Jimmy was a partner at three major U.S. law firms – most recently Davis Wright Tremaine LLP. He represented multinational corporations and emerging companies in a wide range of sectors – including technology, entertainment, media, sports, financial services, consumer products, retail, and automotive. His legal clients included Amazon.com, Fandango, Hyundai Capital America, Kia Motors America, Live Nation Entertainment, Major League Baseball Properties, Microsoft, the Motion Picture Association of America, Sony Pictures Entertainment, TripAdvisor, Uber Technologies and more. Jimmy has also been a Certified Information Privacy Professional/U.S.

Jimmy was born in Saigon, South Vietnam – the youngest child of a prominent judge. In April 1975, when Jimmy was 2 years old, his family fled the country the night before the fall of Saigon to North Vietnamese forces, and re-settled into Southern California. Since then, Jimmy has a history of excelling early – graduating college at age 19 and law school at age 22. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies, magna cum laude, from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Southern California Law School.

In 2008, Lawdragon named Jimmy (at only age 36) one of the “500 Leading Lawyers in America” and described him as a “dynamo talent.” He has been recognized by the Century City Bar Association as “Intellectual Property Lawyer of the Year” (2011), and by the Association of Media & Entertainment Counsel with its Industry Leader Award (2017). A leader in the IP community, Jimmy was formerly Chair of the State Bar of California’s Intellectual Property Law section, and co-chaired the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s IP, Internet and New Media section.

Jimmy is also a strong diversity and LGBT rights advocate. He co-chaired the California Minority Counsel Program and was inducted into its “Diversity Leader Hall of Fame” (2015). Diversity MBA Magazine named him a “Top 100 Under 50 Diverse Executive Leader” (2015). Jimmy formerly served on the Board of Equality California, the state’s leading LGBT rights organization, during the period of marriage equality battles. In 2012, the Huffington Post listed Jimmy as one of the “Most Influential LGBT Asian Icons.” In 2010, the Advocate magazine named him to its “Forty under 40” list of leading LGBT persons in America.
