BNB Chain Strengthens Marketing Department

BNB Chain has a mission to impact one billion people in the crypto space. Following the mission, the contract-enabled parallel blockchain for Decentralized Applications (dApp) strengthened its marketing department by hiring a new Vice President, Patrick Degenhardt. 

The new recruitment would strengthen the network’s position in the blockchain industry, as Degenhardt is an expert in blockchain marketing. Additionally, the new Vice President is not a stranger in the crypto space, having contributed to the growth of top protocols, including Consensys (makers of MetaMask), Boson Protocol, Everledger, and more. Aside from crypto, the passionate Web3 enthusiast also took up marketing roles at the World Economic Forum and Philips Electronics. 

Following the appointment, the native Brazilian will lead BNB Chain’s Marketing and Community team to make the network the number one destination for communities in the Web3 space. The BNB Chain blog on May 6 quoted Degenhardt expressing excitement at the appointment. 

“I’m thrilled to join the BNB Chain ecosystem and dedicate my time and energy to this vibrant community – effectively the most popular blockchain across several indicators. Whether we’re talking about the number of active users or the volume of transactions throughout the 1,300+ dApps offered in our ecosystem, the amazing BNB Chain community has come a long way in such a very short time,”  Degenhardt said. “However, this is just the beginning! I’m very excited to start working with everyone and help drive more and more innovation, to take the ecosystem to the next level.”


The graduate of King’s College London’s Master of Science in Marketing will use his experience and expertise to improve the Marketing department at BNB Chain. In addition, the executive will bolster the network’s increased awareness, help promote community management, create educational projects, and more. Overall, the Vice President’s role would be to ensure that BNB Chain becomes the world’s leading blockchain infrastructure. 

In other news, Degenhardt was live at the Starton Hackathon by Epitech Technology on May 6.
