A pioneer in the blockchain movement, Mr. Bailey is the co-founder of Po.et and chairman of the Po.et Foundation. In addition, he is the CEO of BTC Media, the first dedicated outlet for digital currency, and the publisher of Distributed, Bitcoin Magazine, and yBitcoin.

He joined Maven’s board of directors after Maven and Po.et entered into a strategic alliance in January 2018 to provide Maven’s coalition of independent publishers protection from improper use of their content and ensure fair monetization.

Po.et is a shared, open, universal ledger designed to record metadata and ownership information for digital creative assets. By creating an open platform on the Bitcoin blockchain, Po.et aims to create the most institutional, globally-verifiable record of digital media assets. This record will be a framework for building smart, interoperable media applications using a shared, standard and extensible metadata format.

Mr. Bailey is a graduate of the University of Alabama.
