A sponsor page with all the logos and goodies is in the works.
With a project of this scope, every contribution, kind email, tweet, phone call, forum post, story in the press, mention in social media, or link shared matters. Even finding bugs with our website or holding our feet to the fire when we screw up – it all matters. We are just grateful to be a small part of a large global movement and the revolutionary technology which inspires it.
We are not able to adequately express our overwhelming gratitude to over 430 backers on Kickstarter and in Bitcoin (including many anonymous contributions). We couldn’t make this film without you. We are humbled. We are doing everything we can to measure up and to make a great product, sharing our experience and an exploration into the world of bitcoin with as many people as we can.
One of the most rewarding benefits of doing the Life On Bitcoin documentary film project is meeting so many interesting people. The bitcoin community and the wider crypto-currency community are full of people with a passion for the work they do and for improving the lives of others through the free exchange of ideas, products and services. These are fascinating and intelligent people, who love life, and who are working at every turn to spread the message of bitcoin, because they believe it will bring about more independence and a freer world.
