Hey folks. We're closing in on the Arcade City app launch: less than one month away. If you missed last month's State of City update, go read about our launch details there.
We're about to close the 'individual angel investor' part of our seed funding round. If you've been considering coming on board as an investment partner, this is your last chance. For more details, watch our five-minute pitch video then reply to this email with details about yourself and why you're interested.
We've been buried in awesome media coverage thanks to our successful push into Austin. Last week's article about our partnership with homeless outreach charity Unsung.org -- where our Austin drivers just delivered their 1,000th meal to the needy in Austin -- hit the front page of Reddit and got more than 200,000 views - Bitcoin.com's most viewed article ever.
Our app will let us scale this Austin magic everywhere around the world.
We invite you to join us.
As they say, "Lead, follow, or get out of the way." ;)
