Bitcoin CEO announced as finalist for the 2017 Entrepreneur of the Year Award

Coinsource’s CEO Sheffield Clark and CMO Bobby Sharp make Southwest region finalist list

New York, NY – May 31, 2017 – For the first time ever, a Bitcoin CEO has been selected as a finalist for the Southwest 2017 Entrepreneur of the Year award. Coinsource CEO Sheffield Clark and the company’s CMO Bobby Sharp join 45 other entrepreneurs excelling in the areas of innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Amongst the star-studded finalists are CEO of 7-Eleven Joseph DePinto, CEO of Dave & Buster’s Stephen King, and CEO of RISE Nicholas Kennedy. Each business leader was nominated by third parties and selected by a panel of independent judges.

CEO of Coinsource Sheffield Clark said, “It is an honor to be considered alongside such an elite group of talented, driven and selfless individuals. We are extremely excited to be recognized in traditional business circles and it’s testament to the growth and adoption in the bitcoin space.”

After a breakout year in 2016, Coinsource became the world’s largest bitcoin ATM network, deploying machines to key population centers across America at a rate of 1.4 per week. Now with a roster of 108 ATMs across eight states, up from 70 at the beginning of this year, Coinsource provides quick and convenient access to the world’s fastest growing alternative asset, directly from the kiosk.

“We are very proud of what we’ve built here at Coinsource; one of our main goals was to help those a little less fortunate by providing the unbanked and underbanked with cash to bitcoin, and bitcoin to cash conversion. There’s some immense competition on the EY list but we are in it to win it,” Clark said.

CMO Bobby Sharp, who has a wealth of experience in the media, dining and tech industries, is also a co-founder of Coinsource.


The winner will be announced at a special gala on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.


CEO Sheffield Clark and/or CMO Bobby Sharp are available for interview.
