Bitcoin Book Published for Educating U.S. Congressmen, Secures Excess Funding on Kickstarter
An educational book on Bitcoin (BTC) proposed by a group of 8 individuals has gained more funds than solicited from public investors on the Kickstarter platform.
The book dubbed, “Bitcoin and the American Dream” is slated to help congressmen in the Senate and the House reconsider their conception of what Bitcoin represents from the way mainstream media have painted the premier digital currency. The authors said the book was inspired after the bipartisan infrastructure Bill has been passed.
The fundraising prompt reads:
“We are a diverse group of 8 Bitcoin enthusiasts who are publishing a Bitcoin book for policymakers in Washington DC. We come from all walks of life and are of different races, generations, geographical locations, and political parties,”
“What we have in common is that we all believe that Bitcoin is good for America and that's the case we want to make in this book. This is an educational book for people in government so they can understand much better what's going on instead of relying on the media narrative,” authors added.
The team led by Jimmy Song has received as many as 166 backers at the time of writing and has raised exactly $23,276 from a minimum pledge of $25. This raised fund has already surpassed expectations as the team set out to raise just $5,000 in total. The excess funds, according to the team, will now be going into the book’s launch campaign.
The team listed the risks of not being able to get published by its preferred publisher amongst others. Cryptocurrency education has been the hallmark of the digital currency ecosystem in recent times. As reported by Blockchain.News, Binance exchange has a dedicated crypto education in China and these did not underscore the fact that the broader industry is in need of more professional educators to help change wrong narratives about the space.
