Campaign for charity to receive btsx/bitUSD.
« on: September 05, 2014, 08:53:46 PM »

During the Mumble session Xeroc explained his problems with wanting to balance transparency with possibly a little exposure when paying out his donations.  Really the problem is that there is no one taking btsx or bitUSD.  We need a solid donation point that we can be involved around.

I know of Sean's Outpost.  Maybe we could get them to publicly take BTSX, maybe not.  I think it would be better if it wasn't Sean's Output, but maybe that would be positive ?  The organizations have to be small enough to want to work with us, so we can't choose some huge organization with layers of management.  Charities for things that people love.  Saving puppies and kids is a start. 

I personally have no suggestions and don't even like to suggest things.  Charity can also attract people who are not sincere.  Anyone know of anyone personally involved in a small worthwhile charity? 

Anyone guess how much much we could put together ?  Would it just be a big fail when we come up with $200 between everyone after weeks of begging ?  thoughts ?

I bet Shawn's Outpost would be interested in helping. He is doing pretty nice work I think, and have seen him work with alt coins before. I think crypto charities probably wouldn't turn down free money for a good cause, we just need to contact them.

I have a feeling this post was buried: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=4582.msg109578#msg109578

This current thread itself has 12+ hours on it and 31 views.  I guess the title sucks?

And yes Xeroc we definitely want people discussing this all in one spot. 

My post basically adds nothing to Xeroc's efforts except suggesting BTSX/BitUSD as a whole needs a charity that can receive currencies properly denominated. 

 BitUSD and not BTSX ?   8)

Payment processor adoption will help towards this goal I think. Currently they would need to do everything manually.

I agree that a payment processor would help, but it isn't necessarily needed.  Someone with a good worthwhile charity that we can trust could easily do it manually once a month.  However if we can't easily come up with someone like this then perhaps we have to wait for payment processor.
