Max Keiser’s ‘Bitcoin Capital’ Investment Fund Raises over $1M in Crowdfunding
The fund, which sought to raise US$888,968, surpassed its initial goal on Thursday, June 4, with 6 days still remaining before the end of the campaign.
Max Keiser, a financial journalist and entrepreneur, commented:
“I have been critical of the traditional financial system for many years on my show. I was the first global news outlet to cover Bitcoin when it was trading at $3, recognizing its potential to change the world. Many startups in the Bitcoin space credit Keiser Report for getting them started in the business. Bitcoin Capital allows the founders and investors to experiment with new crypto financial business models and currencies to transform global finance.”
