    Max - thank you (and to StartEngine) for putting this data together each month! Out of curiosity, do you know why your overall 2018 Reg CF data differs from the $109.3M 2018 Reg CF dollars shown in the Crowdfund Capital Advisors 2018 report? Was 2018 indeed a flat year for Reg CF, or what are the different assumptions you are using when compiling the data?
