Many of you have heard of them. Those of you that haven't, I'm not going in-depth, but cryptocurrencies are basically digital money. Bitcoin is the most well known of these.
I personally have several different wallets (the way that you store these coins). I have Litecoin, Dogecoin, Vertcoin, Smartcoin, Maxcoin, and Unobtanium.
As all of you should know, we accept (and appreciate) donations here at SocialCu.be. However this involves having a paypal account and requires "real" money* such as US Dollars. This is understandably a pretty big turnoff to most of you.
Thus, I'm considering adding a page to which you can donate different cryptocurrencies instead. This would make donating much easier as it requires nothing more than downloading the wallet of your choice and then taking [however much time it takes] to mine a few coins. Then you can simply enter the address I provide you and sent the desired amount to one of my wallets.
To be up front with you,
these coins often have little "real" money* value (one Dogecoin is currently only worth $
015 USD). Unless a significant amount of coins are donated, I** probably won't even cash them out and they really won't help us the same way that donating $ would.
If you think this is a good idea, are there any certain wallets you'd like us to have?
Anyways, just food for thought***.
*Real money isn't real, hence the quotation marks.
**I might send them to SLEDGE to cash out if we get enough since he pays for the hosting, I wouldn't cash stuff for my personal benefit unless you asked me to do so for your donation.
