About This Month's Sponsors:
BRD

We're moving money forward.
We believe in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the globe by leveraging the possibilities bitcoin provides. Whether it's bringing financial services to society, making advancements in the future of money, or providing new capabilities that were previously thought impossible, we put our passion into our work and it shows.

We achieve these goals by focusing on the experience we provide our users. We measure success by the ease with which new and non-technical users can get started using our products, and by the high level of security we are able to offer behind the scenes. Many believe bitcoin can be easy or secure, but not both; we have broken the mold and proved that is not true.

We offer all of this through our iPhone and Android apps, and are excited to have you experience the power of bitcoin in the palm of your hand.
