The Bitcoin.com.au an Australian crypto exchange has just named a former consulting giant Ben Ingram an executive of PwC, to be the new COE of the platform, this is according to a report by the Business Insider Australia.
Ingram was able to hold the role as the director in charge of the digital strategy at PwC, which is among the big four audit firms. He left the company in March this year to venture on to the Bitcoin.com.au platform.
He Is Already Working In The Company
According to the Business Insider, the work Ingram will be doing will involve both the exchange and improving the trading functionality of the platform. But this is not all as he will also be focusing on expanding the crypto base financial products that they have into the traditional marketplace.
Ingram went ahead to explicitly mention that they will be instituting crypto investments in various areas such as the superannuation.

The reason being, the platform is able to offer its investors with a same-day settlement, it lets people get into the Bitcoin, and the other most important factor it is able to get people back out of the Bitcoin in a timely manner.
There Are New Developments On The Platform
