Lifeboat Foundation enters 21st century

Minden, NV | Posted on March 19th, 2013

While the Lifeboat Foundation was founded in the 21st
century, until recently it was mainly funded using 20th century money,
basically various types of monies backed by governments. Thanks to the
encouragement of some of our larger donors we are now working to have
the majority of our funding come from 21st century money -- money backed
not by governments but by algorithms. The 21st century money Lifeboat is
currently focused on is bitcoins.

Our Brian Cartmell will match the next 500 bitcoins donated. Learn about
our growing bitcoin endowment fund (worth almost $40,000) at
https://lifeboat.com/ex/bitcoins.

The attempted EU-IMF grab of bank accounts that held government-backed
money was the key event that caused the Lifeboat Foundation to feel that
the time for 21st century money was here.
