    Well Done! Thanks for having CoinOutlet Joe. It was my pleasure to present -- hopefully, we can reschedule for a demo of the ATM when the roads are not a sheet of ice.

    Thank you everyone for the thoughtful questions!

    Beyond accepting it for donations (which I look forward to hearing about), would it be possible to comment on or talk about the future of Bicoin/cyber currency as a mechanism for supporting crowd funding initiatives.
