1 Billion Tech co founder and CTO Dr. Shahani Markus, who is also CTO of Bay Coins said, “Mobile is a natural
fit for those who want to trade Bitcoins, and buying or selling with cash is still the easiest way to
acquire the currency. In the past, finding someone near you to transact with wasn’t easy with mobile
devices. With Bitcoin Bazaar, anyone can buy or sell Bitcoin in person easily.” Dr. Markus, a Computer
Science Ph.D. from Purdue University, and former CTO of the ICT Agency of Sri Lanka.
