Following the second round of voting to replace two vacant seats on the Bitcoin Foundation’s board of directors, BTC China CEO Bobby Lee and venture capitalist Brock Pierce were officially added to the board’s roster. The three-person runoff election saw Gyft CEO Vinny Lingham miss election to the post by a narrow 2% margin. Votes were cast by the Bitcoin Foundation members.

Both new members received detailed write ups on the Bitcoin Foundation announcement.

Bobby Lee is the CEO and co-founder of BTC China, the first Bitcoin exchange in China and one of the leading Bitcoin exchanges worldwide. Bobby started his career in Silicon Valley as a software engineer at Yahoo! pioneering some of the earliest online communities on the Internet. He has spent the last seven years in Shanghai, China where he was Director of Software Engineering at EMC in China and CTO of SMG BesTV, the leading IPTV company in China. Most recently, he was Vice President of Technology for Walmart’s China E-Commerce business. Bobby graduated from Stanford University with B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science. He has his E-MBA from CEIBS.

Brock Pierce is Co-Founder of GoCoin, ExpressCoin,, and Robocoin Asia. A prolific angel investor, he is city leader of BitAngels Los Angeles and runs the first Bitcoin syndicate to achieve top 10 status on AngelList. Pierce has raised more than $200 million on behalf of his companies and led more than 30 acquisitions in his career. Pierce’s entrepreneurial activities focus around digital currencies like Bitcoin, games, ad tech and payments.

The results follow the first round of voting in early may, which included 15 candidates. Lee and Pierce will join bitcoin luminaries like Jon Matonis Gavin Andresen, Elizabeth Ploshay and others in their ongoing process to shape the technology, politics and advocacy of the bitcoin project.

The seats taken by Pierce and Lee have been vacant for months following the resignations of founding members Charlie Shrem and Mark Karpeles.
