Announcements | October 21, 2016 By:

Cyberfunks Alliance announced its partnership with the Central Texas Food Bank for its inaugural event series, Bitcoin Awakens, which will be held in Austin, TX on Saturday, October 22, 2016.

The announcement is the first in a series of related forthcoming announcements. Cyberfunks is a deeply entrenched network of bitcoin enthusiasts who will host a groundbreaking event aimed at bridging the gap between bitcoin technology and those without access to a bank account.

Using OpenBazaar, Cyberfunks listed a store enabling people to donate to the Food Bank and buy tickets for “Bitcoin Awakens” with no processing fee or middleman involved. Anyone in the world with access to an Internet connection can use bitcoin and OpenBazaar to exchange goods and services freely.

“Bitcoin donations will provide more healthy meals for Central Texans in need. The Food Bank can turn a $1 donation into four meals worth of nutritious food. By raising food and funds for the Food Bank, you’re helping Central Texans eat healthier and live better. Nearly 46,000 Central Texans, one-third of them children, are counting on us each week to get the nutritious food they need and otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford,” said Cyberfunks Alliance.
