 Reddit discution:

Last week, the Airbitz team hit the road and attended two different but equally valuable conferences, Inside Bitcoins NYC and Bitcoin Expo Toronto. This was a great opportunity to meet hundreds of bitcoin enthusiasts, industry experts and evangelists. However, a welcome first face-to-face meeting with some friends that we’ve been working with over the past several months turned out to be a highlight of the week.

We finally met up with Amir Taaki (listed by Forbes as one of the top 30 entrepreneurs under 30 in 2014) and Pablo Martin of libbitcoin and Dark Wallet fame, who had just signed up for the In-Crypto-We-Trust Hackathon. Amir shared his concept, and knowing what a large task this was going to be to complete in 24 hours, Airbitz developers Damian Cutillo and William Swanson teamed up with them to code, fix bugs, and create a slick design and presentation.

The team collectively decided that the hackathon winnings should be fully donated to continuing the development of Amir’s project, libbitcoin, which Airbitz has been contributing to and is using to develop the Airbitz Wallet. Eric Voskuil wrote this about the implications of DarkMarket, Eric is also a member of the libbitcoin team which also shares in this victory for freedom and equality on the net.
