Simon Dixon is a fan of Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency that has taken the world by storm. He recently presented at Bitcoin Expo London 2013. In the talk, he explains how UK residents can funnel money out of their income taxes and into Bitcoin-related startups.
Now BankToTheFuture and Dixon are teaming up with Max Keiser and the Keiser Report in an initiative aimed at finding and funding ten Bitcoin-focused startups on the BankToTheFuture equity crowdfunding platform.
BankToTheFuture is encouraging businesses active in the space to apply for financing on BankToTheFuture.com. Dixon and his team promise help with participating companies’ business plans, tax documentation and more.
All selected businesses will also “get exposure on the Keiser Report with Max Keiser.” The program airs three times a week on the RT network. Keiser is a controversial figure, but his libertarian viewpoint aligns perfectly with the Bitcoin movement. The partnership makes some sense. Keiser will bring welcomed exposure to startups that are selected, and Dixon will focus on funding.
