What donation platform do you prefer now? Bitcoin? Patreon? Wireless transfer?


Edit: I had researched and set up Bitcoin Wallet and sent some funds to it, they will be all donated to Voat. I encourage the rest of the users to do the same.

Nevertheless, many people will not be willing to go through that hassle, voat should consider setting up their own credit card gate or allow people to send money via SOPA transaction.

I would think Bitcoin is probably the surest way to make sure it actually arrives...

I don't think most people know or are willing to know how to use bitcoin. Maybe there should be a brief simple explanation on the site on how to donate via bitcoin.

Many people that would otherwise donate will find having to get into bitcoin just to give a little bit of money too much of a hassle. There should be an easier alternative.

Bitcoin is probably the surest way to make sure it actually arrives but not many people will go through the process of making bitcoin and donating it to the site. We need a more stable and easy to use platform, maybe even a build in site feature where you can directly donate using your credit card.

how to convert bitcoins to currency notes... is there any bank available?


[–] Skanda 0 points 30 points (+30|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Bitcoin is the answer.

Nobody can arbitrarily decide to "limit your Bitcoin wallet".

It's technically impossible.

On the other hand, the bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies fluctuate even more than rest of FX market and there is certain hustle and expenses in transfering the funds to state currency.

A Patreon account will fall in the same way, we're literally watching what happened to 8chan all over again.

This has become a battle for the internet and not just a squabble over a single site.

Free speech is dying on the internet.

Patreon already denied 8chan several times on technicality. I wouldn't trust it.
