Bitcoin-Fueled Homeless Outreach Wins Appeal Against County Officials

•, Jamie Redman

The Florida-based homeless outreach Sean's Outpost founded by Michael Kimbrel and Jason King back in 2013, has been a popular charity among bitcoin proponents. The organization has provided over 167,000 meals to those in need, and all of it has been paid for with bitcoin. The organization was created to help deal with the growing Pensacola homeless population by providing them free meals and a safe place to live. However, last year county officials and a few neighbors threatened Sean's Outpost residents with eviction, stating the land was not permitted to be a campground.

For close to two years, it seemed county officials would evict Sean's Outpost residents. The Department of Housing and Urban Development issued a cease-and-desist against structures built on the property, and the charity even faced hefty fines for code violations.
