About Bitcoin: Bitcoin is a decentralized peer-to-peer payment system. Whereas legacy payment systems rely on third-party intermediaries, Bitcoin transactions are secured through a distributed computing network, seamlessly enabling direct monetary transactions. The supply of Bitcoins is regulated by software and cannot be manipulated by any government, bank, organization or individual.

About Bitcoin 2013: The Bitcoin Foundation is hosting the first major US summit, with a full schedule of panels, presenters, and speakers, dedicated entirely on Bitcoin. The conference will be hosting industry leading venture capitalists, key technologists, and top-tier regulatory thinkers to discuss topics including “Improving Ease of Use,” “Bitcoin Security,” and “Fraud Prevention.”

About Fr33 Aid:  Fr33 Aid is an all-volunteer, international non-profit organization of medically skilled liberty lovers created to help individuals organize projects that educate people about the value of mutual aid. Their main activity involves supporting volunteers who provide medical and educational services at liberty-related events.

About Anti War: Anti War is devoted to the cause of non-interventionism and is read by libertarians, pacifists, leftists, “greens,” independents, and many on the right who oppose imperialism.

About Free State Project: The Free State Project is an agreement among 20,000 pro-liberty activists to move to New Hampshire, where they will exert the fullest practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum role of government is the protection of life, liberty, and property.

About Bitcoin Not Bombs: Bitcoin Not Bombs is a launching pad for NGOs and social entrepreneurs into the financial freedom of the Bitcoin economy, offering premium publicity campaigns designed to facilitate an organization’s adoption of Bitcoin as a payment system, and to fully capitalize on that decision in their fundraising efforts.

Having been involved with a few alternative currency models revolving around silver and gold, it wasn’t hard to see bitcoin’s potential to challenge state run banking. After looking around the bitcoin space for a place to jump in, it made sense to start a coalition of bitcoin users with a Voluntaryist / libertarian perspective. Bitcoin will face many challenges in the next few years if it is to become a successful global currency, and due to the decentralized nature of the bitcoin protocol, it has the potential to overcome the biggest and most violent challenge faced by alternative currencies: the state.
