    Wow.. Again, thank you all for coming out. I would have liked greeting each of your personally. The turnout was overwhelming (in a good way). Each of us in our own way are fueling this wild ride. Last evening was another indication of Bitcoin's ability to spark innovation and positive change. Special thanks to our presenters and host.

    God speed on all your ventures, till we meet again.

    Hey Guys, Can't wait to be there with Bot Revolt and Bitcoin Bandits Team!

    Kenneth and I were at Bitcoin 2013. We have work to do, not only promoting Bitcoin to the hipsters in Wynwood and listing more goods and services on CoinGig (so that Kenneth can cash out rich and be our patron), but reaching out to local, state, and Congressional politicians, as well. I cannot emphasize that last one enough!

    I am negotiating with the Adams Center for Entrepreneurship at FAU to develop a non-credit course that will cover 21st Century Dot.Com 2.0 stuff, like Bitcoin, Crowdfunding, etc. Through my contacts there, we should be able to reach some of South Florida's 'royalty'.

    To that end, The Bitcoin Fund (the guys in Malta) is now registered in the USA, and I have asked their American partner to come to South Florida to pitch the fund to local accredited investors and to explain it to area Business students.

    Also, I met several Argentines and Colombians at the conference, and we want to organize Bitcoin of the Americas. I have the .com and .org domain names.

      Kreuzberg is notoriously leftist. Let's turn Wynwood into Wynwood. ;-)

      A couple weeks ago, I asked the cashier at Panther Coffee when they would start accepting Bitcoin. She asked, "What is that?"

      I wanted to cry.

    "Liberty City Ventures, based in New York, launched the $15 million Digital Currency Fund, which seeks to invest in all types of firms in the Bitcoin ecosystem... The team is also very familiar with financial services and payment system startups, having recently retained former U.S. Treasury officials and regulators and computer engineers as advisors."
