"funded by Founders Fund, Foundation Capital, Propel Venture Partners, Pantera Capital, DCG, Danhua Capital, and Huiyin Blockchain Venture among others."

If you're in the US:

Don't just wake up on Tuesday and decide whether to go vote. Make PLANS to vote. Some folks' lives depend on it.

Make it a priority. As much as is possible, plan the other aspects of your life AROUND the fact that you're gonna go vote. Make it a given.
