Following the success of the /r/bitcoin/ AMA, I was contacted by Dan Held and Jake Benson. Both Dan and Jake are originally from Texas, but have been living in California for awhile now. They are both very active players in the Bitcoin market and moved to San Francisco to work on their respective startups.

Jake is the CEO of a new Bitcoin company called LibraTax and Dan is the co-founder of ZeroBlock and the Director of Product for Blockchain.

The both of them have some pretty cool thoughts on how Bitcoin is going to continue maturing. More specific to my campaign, they also have some good insight on the political future of Bitcoin and the Bitcoin community. LibraTax in particular is an amazingly useful application for keeping up with tax requirements from Bitcoin investments. Although I'm not sure it was designed for this, I am willing to wager it will have a significant application in campaign finance reporting too.
