Hello,
       At Florian's recommendation I am posting this to the list for
discussion.

The fund raising effort by The Document Foundation recently has been
quite remarkable and no doubt it will continue in this vein.  My
little suggestion is intended to change or remove nothing from the
current state of affairs, merely to add an option to the usual array
of financial options of credit cards, PayPal, cheques and bank
transfers.  The suggestion is, as the subject line indicates, that TDF
consider adding a Bitcoin address for accepting donations.

So ... thoughts, opinions?


Regards,
Ben

For what it's worth (as I have been a lurker on the list so far :-P),
I think this is a good idea. As you mention, the costs of
implementation are very low and it could definitely improve TDF's
revenue since there are many people who are interested in Bitcoin
succeeding and would consider donating just because of that. The large
overlap of that mindset with the FOSS one coupled with the ease of
making a transaction are also a large plus.

Hopefully this post will bump the thread a bit so someone with real
voting power can chime in! :-)

Regards,
