rsz_chicagoThe 1911 United super PAC, the first African-American Political Action Committee (PAC) to support President Obama in 2012, has decided to step ahead and become the first group of its kind to harvest support for what the committee calls œBitcoin candidates. In other words, democratic political candidates who support cryptocurrency.

Besides backing up Bitcoin, the 1911 United is also accepting Bitcoin through a œunique program. The system allows the donors to help a Bitcoin candidate supported by the PAC via a Bitcoin-friendly crowdfunding website. In this case, the committee is working with Coinfunder.
