[proposal] should we accept bitcoin donations for FSCI?
FSCI is trying to raise funds and we are no way near our goal yet. I propose we can also start accepting bitcoin donations for following reasons:
- bitcoin allows us to receive international payments, increasing our donator's space from national to international
- bitcoin is a little controversial but its the closest to "FOSS money" we have
- helps with donator's privacy
There are few selfhostable services we can use such as BTCPay Server: https://btcpayserver.org/
although running BTCPay server is a complete eCommerce solution and might be too expensive IF we also want to accept quick payments over The Lightning Network.
We could also just have a bitcoin address generated from a light wallet (like electrum wallet) and post it on our fundraisers. I think the core members should hold the keys to that wallet.
We should also consider some less popular but more private currencies such as Monero
