Off Duty Fireman Construction Inc.’s President, Marvin Spruill, said, “Off Duty Fireman Construction’s strength is in our ability to recognize the constant need to adapt to our ever-changing industry. My knowledge and experience from 25 years of military and fire service careers has allowed me to understand the importance of keeping up with innovative technology and finding new ways to support our business model and clients. Thirteen years ago, our nation experienced a major recession brought on by our current financial system and its model. The anonymous creator (Satoshi Nakamoto) of the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, created the first peer-to-peer electronic cash system. His vision was to send payments directly from one individual to another without the need for an intermediary party. Bitcoin is based on a proof of work hashed on digital ledger known as the “BlockChain.” Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision has taken the world by storm over the last 13 years. There are 10,000+ cryptocurrencies at present with a value of over $2 trillion dollars. With cryptocurrencies taking the main stage and gaining mainstream adoption, Fortune 500 companies are adding it to their balance sheets, countries are adopting Bitcoin as legal tender, and banks are scrambling to create infrastructure to offer cryptocurrency services to their members, so it only makes sense for us to expand on the optionality we provide by adding this growing asset class as an accepted form of payment for our customers.”
