The ‘jfGi 💯’ testimonials

I believe that JFGI.cc ( twitter @jfGi) in its simplest form is an execution of the title of the Bitcoin Whitepaper.

@jfGi offers users a way to link a mobile telephone number or a twitter handle to a bitcoin address. In a few simple steps an individual can be connected to the millions of wallets in the bitcoin network. The user can now give out his jfgi.cc/username to receive payments/donations, a far simpler process than providing a public wallet address.
