Due to the numerous messages from friends and customers we wanted to share the following regarding the recent legal issues of the Paxful leadership team in Miami Beach:
• This incident was not related to Bitcoin and had nothing to do with selling Bitcoin in Florida.
• We hope that in the future both our companies can continue to improve access to Bitcoin. We are happy to learn that no one, including federal and local authorities, was injured during their apprehension.
• Both BitQuick and Athena Bitcoin operate in Florida and will continue to serve customers who may also have used services offered by Paxful.
