Updated list of Global Beermoney opportunities (+180!) - June 2020
Updated list of Global Beermoney opportunities (+180!) - June 2020
The current, and now previous, Beermoney Global list started nearly 5 years ago. It’s been updated and has grown over all that time, but it also became a hassle to keep current. It was time to build a new list from scratch based on my experience in the Beermoney world over all these years and all the contributions all of you have been making in this sub. The lists consist of opportunities that are available in at least one country that is not the US. This means there are sites which only work in Canada or the UK. There’s sites which are open to the whole world, but this does not mean everyone can really earn something on it. It’s all still very demographic and therefore location dependent. This list should give you a starting point to try out and find what works for you. I’m not using everything myself as I prefer to focus on a few, so not all are tested by me. They are found in this sub, other subreddits and other resources where people claim to have success. I’ve chosen the format of a simple table with the bare minimum of information to keep things clean. It includes a link, how you earn, personal payment proof if available and sign-up bonus codes if applicable. Some of these bonuses are also one-time use codes specifically made for this sub! For the ones I don’t have payment proof (yet) feel free to provide some as a comment or via modmail so others know it’s legit. I am working on detailed instructions for each method that I personally use which will include things like cashout minimum, cashout options, tips & tricks,... For now I’ve split things up based on the type of earning like passive or mobile. Because of this there’s sometimes an overlap as some are both passive and on mobile or both earning crypto and a GPT (Get Paid To) website. The lists are obviously not complete so I invite you to keep posting new ones in the sub, as a comment to this post, or in modmail. Especially if you have sites or apps which work for one single specific country I can start building a list, just like I did for The Netherlands and Belgium. If you recognize things which are in fact scams or not worth it let me know as well.
Get Paid To (Surveys, tasks, offers, videos, clicking links, play games, searching)
For The Netherlands there are a few very good options next to a bunch of ‘spaarprogramma’s. There ‘spaarprogramma’s are all the same where you receive and click a bunch of e-mails, advertisements, banners,... I advise you to create a separate e-mail address or use a good filter in your inbox as you will be spammed to death. I believe they can be a nice piece of beermoney but they take quite the effort.
Nano is technically great - I think that is generally agreed upon. So, why no adoption? As my thread last week discussed, I think this community has often undersold itself - potentially in an effort to be technically correct and potentially by limiting the audience to bitcoiners. How do we move forward? I think the biggest benefit of using a cryptocurrency comes not to individuals / consumers but to vendors or merchants. I was very excited to hear about Kappture and AppiaPay, but they seem to have limited scope or delayed rollout. Yes, perhaps I can be patient. However, we can discuss other options in the meantime. Coinbase / Bitpay - both of those would be excellent drivers to merchant adoption as they already have a very large userbase. It doesn't currently seem likely that they will adopt Nano. Is there any reason to believe they would add it for merchant acceptance rather than listed on exchange? Brainblocks or similar - I believe this provides a similar service to Bitpay. I'm not aware of ongoing adoption efforts here. Can someone give commentary here? Could the community drive something here by developing a public resource or NanoCenter project (I'd be willing to participate or do some minor funding)? Selected merchant adoption - Nano has technology that can be particularly suited for smaller transactions or those that need fast confirmation. Discounted prices for a service or for a company make sense. For me, this is what drove my BTC use before 2017. Find another way to publicize WeNano merchants? (man, worst timing for geo-located faucets ever!) Other ideas?

Lastupdated2018-01-29 This post is a collaboration with the Bitcoin community to create a one-stop source for Lightning Network information. There are still questions in the FAQ that are unanswered, if you know the answer and can provide a source please do so!
Lightning Network White Paper - The protocol has changed since this original paper, but covers the mid-level mechanics of the Lightning Network with an emphasis on the smart contracts that make it trustless
If you can answer please PM me and include source if possible. Feel free to help keep these answers up to date and as brief but correct as possible
Is Lightning Bitcoin?
Yes. You pick a peer and after some setup, create a bitcoin transaction to fund the lightning channel; it’ll then take another transaction to close it and release your funds. You and your peer always hold a bitcoin transaction to get your funds whenever you want: just broadcast to the blockchain like normal. In other words, you and your peer create a shared account, and then use Lightning to securely negotiate who gets how much from that shared account, without waiting for the bitcoin blockchain.
Is the Lightning Network open source?
Yes, Lightning is open source. Anyone can review the code (in the same way as the bitcoin code)
Who owns and controls the Lightning Network?
Similar to the bitcoin network, no one will ever own or control the Lightning Network. The code is open source and free for anyone to download and review. Anyone can run a node and be part of the network.
I’ve heard that Lightning transactions are happening “off-chain”…Does that mean that my bitcoin will be removed from the blockchain?
No, your bitcoin will never leave the blockchain. Instead your bitcoin will be held in a multi-signature address as long as your channel stays open. When the channel is closed; the final transaction will be added to the blockchain. “Off-chain” is not a perfect term, but it is used due to the fact that the transfer of ownership is no longer reflected on the blockchain until the channel is closed.
Do I need a constant connection to run a lightning node?
Not necessarily, Example: A and B have a channel. 1 BTC each. A sends B 0.5 BTC. B sends back 0.25 BTC. Balance should be A = 0.75, B = 1.25. If A gets disconnected, B can publish the first Tx where the balance was A = 0.5 and B = 1.5. If the node B does in fact attempt to cheat by publishing an old state (such as the A=0.5 and B=1.5 state), this cheat can then be detected on-chain and used to steal the cheaters funds, i.e., A can see the closing transaction, notice it's an old one and grab all funds in the channel (A=2, B=0). The time that A has in order to react to the cheating counterparty is given by the CheckLockTimeVerify (CLTV) in the cheating transaction, which is adjustable. So if A foresees that it'll be able to check in about once every 24 hours it'll require that the CLTV is at least that large, if it's once a week then that's fine too. You definitely do not need to be online and watching the chain 24/7, just make sure to check in once in a while before the CLTV expires. Alternatively you can outsource the watch duties, in order to keep the CLTV timeouts low. This can be achieved both with trusted third parties or untrusted ones (watchtowers). In the case of a unilateral close, e.g., you just go offline and never come back, the other endpoint will have to wait for that timeout to expire to get its funds back. So peers might not accept channels with extremely high CLTV timeouts. -- Source
What Are Lightning’s Advantages?
Tiny payments are possible: since fees are proportional to the payment amount, you can pay a fraction of a cent; accounting is even done in thousandths of a satoshi. Payments are settled instantly: the money is sent in the time it takes to cross the network to your destination and back, typically a fraction of a second.
Does Lightning require Segregated Witness?
Yes, but not in theory. You could make a poorer lightning network without it, which has higher risks when establishing channels (you might have to wait a month if things go wrong!), has limited channel lifetime, longer minimum payment expiry times on each hop, is less efficient and has less robust outsourcing. The entire spec as written today assumes segregated witness, as it solves all these problems.
Can I Send Funds From Lightning to a Normal Bitcoin Address?
No, for now. For the first version of the protocol, if you wanted to send a normal bitcoin transaction using your channel, you have to close it, send the funds, then reopen the channel (3 transactions). In future versions, you and your peer would agree to spend out of your lightning channel funds just like a normal bitcoin payment, allowing you to use your lightning wallet like a normal bitcoin wallet.
Can I Make Money Running a Lightning Node?
Not really. Anyone can set up a node, and so it’s a race to the bottom on fees. In practice, we may see the network use a nominal fee and not change very much, which only provides an incremental incentive to route on a node you’re going to use yourself, and not enough to run one merely for fees. Having clients use criteria other than fees (e.g. randomness, diversity) in route selection will also help this.
What is the release date for Lightning on Mainnet?
Would there be any KYC/AML issues with certain nodes?
Nope, because there is no custody ever involved. It's just like forwarding packets. -- Source
What is the delay time for the recipient of a transaction receiving confirmation?
Furthermore, the Lightning Network scales not with the transaction throughput of the underlying blockchain, but with modern data processing and latency limits - payments can be made nearly as quickly as packets can be sent. -- Source
How does the lightning network prevent centralization?
How would the lightning network work between exchanges?
Each exchange will get to decide and need to implement the software into their system, but some ideas have been outlined here: Google Doc - Lightning Exchanges Note that by virtue of the usual benefits of cost-less, instantaneous transactions, lightning will make arbitrage between exchanges much more efficient and thus lead to consistent pricing across exchange that adopt it. -- Source
How do lightning nodes find other lightning nodes?
Does every user need to store the state of the complete Lightning Network?
According to Rusty's calculations we should be able to store 1 million nodes in about 100 MB, so that should work even for mobile phones. Beyond that we have some proposals ready to lighten the load on endpoints, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there. -- Source
Would I need to download the complete state every time I open the App and make a payment?
No you'd remember the information from the last time you started the app and only sync the differences. This is not yet implemented, but it shouldn't be too hard to get a preliminary protocol working if that turns out to be a problem. -- Source
What needs to happen for the Lightning Network to be deployed and what can I do as a user to help?
Lightning is based on participants in the network running lightning node software that enables them to interact with other nodes. This does not require being a full bitcoin node, but you will have to run "lnd", "eclair", or one of the other node softwares listed above. All lightning wallets have node software integrated into them, because that is necessary to create payment channels and conduct payments on the network, but you can also intentionally run lnd or similar for public benefit - e.g. you can hold open payment channels or channels with higher volume, than you need for your own transactions. You would be compensated in modest fees by those who transact across your node with multi-hop payments. -- Source
Is there anyway for someone who isn't a developer to meaningfully contribute?
Sure, you can help write up educational material. You can learn and read more about the tech at http://dev.lightning.community/resources. You can test the various desktop and mobile apps out there (Lightning Desktop, Zap, Eclair apps). -- Source
Do I need to be a miner to be a Lightning Network node?
Do I need to run a full Bitcoin node to run a lightning node?
lit doesn't depend on having your own full node -- it automatically connects to full nodes on the network. -- Source LND uses a light client mode, so it doesn't require a full node. The name of the light client it uses is called neutrino
How does the lightning network stop "Cheating" (Someone broadcasting an old transaction)?
Upon opening a channel, the two endpoints first agree on a reserve value, below which the channel balance may not drop. This is to make sure that both endpoints always have some skin in the game as rustyreddit puts it :-) For a cheat to become worth it, the opponent has to be absolutely sure that you cannot retaliate against him during the timeout. So he has to make sure you never ever get network connectivity during that time. Having someone else also watching for channel closures and notifying you, or releasing a canned retaliation, makes this even harder for the attacker. This is because if he misjudged you being truly offline you can retaliate by grabbing all of its funds. Spotty connections, DDoS, and similar will not provide the attacker the necessary guarantees to make cheating worthwhile. Any form of uncertainty about your online status acts as a deterrent to the other endpoint. -- Source
How many times would someone need to open and close their lightning channels?
You typically want to have more than one channel open at any given time for redundancy's sake. And we imagine open and close will probably be automated for the most part. In fact we already have a feature in LND called autopilot that can automatically open channels for a user. Frequency will depend whether the funds are needed on-chain or more useful on LN. -- Source
Will the lightning network reduce BTC Liquidity due to "locking-up" funds in channels?
When setting up a Lightning Network Node are fees set for the entire node, or each channel when opened?
You don't really set up a "node" in the sense that anyone with more than one channel can automatically be a node and route payments. Fees on LN can be set by the node, and can change dynamically on the network. -- Source
Can Lightning routing fees be changed dynamically, without closing channels?
Yes but it has to be implemented in the Lightning software being used. -- Source
How can you make sure that there will be routes with large enough balances to handle transactions?
You won't have to do anything. With autopilot enabled, it'll automatically open and close channels based on the availability of the network. -- Source
How does the Lightning Network stop flooding nodes (DDoS) with micro transactions? Is this even an issue?

Sites to Avoid: Definitely DO NOT post these.
✖ Earnsanity — Shady owner, sketchy site. Held giveaway and then refunded the prizes after it was over. History of scamming many others. AVOID AT ALL COSTS UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE SCAMMED. ✖ Paidverts — Shady owner, sketchy site. Keeps doing debt swaps (cash to BAP). Do not post. ✖ Neobux — It isn’t really a scam, but they operate as a pyramid scheme. There’s money to be made online, but it’s definitely not there. ✖ MarketGlory — It does pay out, but the pay is absolutely ridiculous. The only way to make a decent amount of money is to have a lot of referrals, and referral whoring on this subreddit WILL result in a permanent ban. ✖ MindSumo — Not actually a /beermoney site. It’s only spam in this sub. ✖ G2A — Scam/sells stolen keys. ✖ Robinhood — This is spammed on our sub constantly. ✖ Quickthoughts — Many reports of people being banned when trying to withdraw as of 10/2018. Do your due diligence before possibly wasting your time on this app. ✖ Sites with $100+ minimum — These sites usually offer higher than normal payments for simple tasks, with a high minimum to cash out. They are always scams. ✖ Generic news sites that pay you ridiculous amounts to read an article (two euros??) — Common sense should take care of this, but in case it doesn’t, it’s always a scam. The site is usually hosted somewhere in Eastern Europe, and you will never get paid. ✖ Free bitcoin sites/"faucets" (THIS INCLUDES QOINPRO) — This is not referring to those video-viewing/task sites (although they’re still paying fragments of a penny). I’m talking about sites that give you 0.000001BTC to fill a captcha (freebitco.in, dailybitcoins). Admittedly many beermoney sites pay low, but don’t even bother with these. Also: Bitcoin mining is NO LONGER PROFITABLE. If you're really so keen on getting bitcoins, doing so through an exchange is your best option. Here are a few more scam sites and sketchy sites.

The Synthetic Newbe Doge buy guide, plus my 2 cents
Hi guys, this is my first post/comment/whatever on reddit, I hope it can be useful to everyone. I want to talk mainly about 2 topics:
1) How to own dogecoins, at least that's how I did
2) What's happening to the market
Section 1) : To The Mooooon! I'm a proud owner of 3.6K dogecoins, I mainly earned them in 2 ways
Faucet IMPORTANT: As a personal suggestion, please AVOID any tutorial that makes you buy on Wirwox, I tried it and almost got scammed, you're really likely to lose 1/3 of your capital before you buy whatever want, and often what reamains in your balance is not enough to buy anything at all!! I was lucky because I paid with Paypal, so I open a dispute. Really discouraged then!
I'm a newbe in dogecoins or cryptocurrency in general, but I'm not a newbe on the net. I'm skilled in researches, payments and avoid scam/frauds, since I was a newbe I needed 2 things on my way to buy: affordable and safe. What it comes is what I found.
=========== START OF TUTORIAL ================
Section 1a) : Buy Them IMPORTANT: You CANNOT use Paypal, just SEPA or credit/debit card, even prepaid ones (which I suggest, safety first!) Coinbase is the most safe "crypto-bank" I've been able to find. To join their board, you need to subscribe a new account, set your phone number, send a document so they can verify your ID, save a payment method. Step 1/3:
3) Save your phone number (it is needed for 2 factor authentication)
4) IMPORTANT: go into your account settings and fill your data, birth, address etc, since the site doesn't explicitly ask them the verification ID will ALWAYS fail because of the absence of your data.
5) Send pics of your documents using the app or the webcam
6) Your account should be verified in hours
7) Register your payment method
8) Buy bitcoin, litecoin or ethereum (you cannot buy bitcoin cash, I don't know why) I preferred to buy litecoin because their fees are lower, the guide will continue using litecoin, but it's exactly the same for every other coin (be sure to select the right one you want to buy/use!)
IMPORTANT: keep in mind that you will pay a small fixed fee on your transfer, in my case if I buy an amount:
<= 10.99 eur, fee is 0.99 eur
<= 26.49 eur, fee is 1.49 eur
<= 51.99 eur, fee is 1.99 eur
<= 78.05 eur, fee is 2.99 eur
>78.05 the fee will grow depending on the amount you buy
Step 2/3: Now that you own your bitcoin/ethereum/litecoin, you have to exchange them, but before this you need a wallet! I found a nice and safe site:
Just subscribe here, follow ALL the instruction the site asks, and in a couple of minutes you'll have a safe, fast with no fees doge wallet. Remember to backup all your wallet in a safe place! Step 3/3: Since it's almost impossible to directly buy dogecoin, you need a way to buy something else (bitcoin, ethereum or litecoin in this tutorial), and then exchange in to dogecoins. For this pourpose, I used changer. All you have to do is subscribe an account, it is a legit site, you have to (obviously) pay some fees when converting a coin to another, but they're not that high. Safeness means fee, remember!
4) In the left column select what are you exchanging (in my case Litecoin, if you bought on Coinbase your other choices are Ethereum or Bitcoin)
5) In the right column what will you receive for (in this case, Dogecoin of course!)
IMPORTANT: remember that every coin transaction pays a fee, so keep in mind that from the amount of coins you are going to trasnfer from your coinbase account, you have to substract the automatically applied fees (what you can send FROM coinbase will ALWAYS be a bit less than your balance!) . To check how much you can transfer, just go into coinbase, the 3th menu option on the top (the wallet icon), select the coin you bought (in my case Litecoin) and click on send, click on the amount you want to send (there are 2 fields, first euusd and second the amount of coin) and then click maximum amount. Copy that number. Now, go back to changer:
1) Paste into the left field (in my case Litecoin) the number you copied before
2) Go into my.dogechain.info , login, click on "receive" and copy your address
3) Paste the address in the "Dogecoin address" field on changer
4) Fill other fields like email, and click exchange
5) Copy the litecoin address that appears over the qr code on changer.com
6) Go back to coinbase (exactly where you checked the max amount you can send)
7) Paste the litecoin address you copied on changer
8) Set the exact amount you have to transfer to changer in order to receive dogecoins (the exact amount you wrote in the changer field!!!)
9) Send coins
Now you have to wait 10-20 min in order to transfer the coinbase amount to changer, then from changer to your dogecoin wallet, that's it! IMPORTANT: there's always a loading bar over the amount to transfer field in changer, when it is full it will update the change rate from one coin to another, it depends on the market change rate. That's it, congratulations, you safely bought dogecoins! Welcome new shiber! Section 1b) : Faucet There are many faucet or things that promise you free coins, 2 considerations:
1) Most of them ar scams
2) They'll NEVER pay much
Anyway during my researches, I found a "group" of inter-related faucets that really pay, I received about 300 doge from them. The idea behind this kind of faucets I'm about to talk is: the more often you'll check the page (not less than 5 minutes), the more you'll learn (anyway we're talking of cents even assuming you'll never sleep and stop living, just be on the site to claim every 5 minutes). Anyway, this set of faucets will continue generating coins even if your browser is absolutely closed, so they're worth a try.
Update: There are 2 more faucet I found http://bonusbitcoin.co http://bitfun.co Each of 2 needs another subscription (I mean with email and password, not just the email used on coinpot like the other 4), personally I just use the 4 listed above.
4) sign just writing your email on every site, the mail you used to register on coinpot.co
5) periodically check everyone of the 4 pages to claim, not before 5 minutes from last claim
6) your claims will automatically added on coinpoy
7) periodically, when exhanges rates are good (more doges for everyone of the outher amounts of coins in coinpot.co) trasform dash/bit/litecoin into dogecoins
8) if you have 50 ore more dogecoins, you can transfer them to your real wallet, transfer takes not more than 24h usually
That's it new shiber, you got some free dogecoins! Actually, I spent 40 eur on dogecoin, buying in different times, hope we'll go on the moon soon :)
=========== END OF TUTORIAL ================
Section 2): My 2 cents I think that what is happening to cryptomarket in these days is related to many factors.
1) China, South Korea, Germany and France wanting to regulate cryptomarket or ban mining pools because of aggressive use of electric power and to avoid fiscal evasion. This news led inexpert crypto-owner to panic, so huge amount of selling made the price of EVERY coin to drop, as we see now.
2) January is a well known month into financial world, is usual for people to withdraw money to pay taxes etc, so sell coins to make money, so again huge selling.
In my opinion, there's no reason to get scared, in 10 days cryptomarket lost an average of 30% value, why shouldn't it gain back again? In february I expect dogecoin to skyrocket, as well as other cryptocurrencies, this is a sea that cannot be stopped anymore, so shibers let's hold, and don't forget that 1 Doge = 1 Doge. Hope all this poem will be useful to someone, keep rocking guys :) Thank you for your existence reddit, I learned a lot thanks to you!
One thing that is endlessly discussed around here is how we can "protect our decentralization", but it seems like no one really knows what that actually means. Everyone points to the node count and saying we are becoming more and more centralized (which is true to a point), but the node count is really only one piece among many moving parts. Decentralization means that there is no central points of control, no central points of failure. In practice, that should mean that the network is effectively impossible to shut down or manipulate against the will of the rest of the network. I would argue that is already the case, but we always seem to strive for "moar decentralization", whatever that means.. AFAIK, we don't really have any sort of measure on what exactly being "more" decentralized means, and at the very least it seems to be a lot more than just the number of nodes out there. However, we could find numbers and totals for a lot of different factors, and come up with some kind of score based on that. How about something like the Bitcoin Decentralization Index (BDI)? Some things we have concrete data for, and other things we will only be able to get a rough estimation of at best, but all of them play in to eachother and contribute to the goal of making Bitcoin as a whole stronger and even more difficult to destroy. IMO, numbers that we have concrete evidence for (such as node count, hash rate etc.) should be much higher weighted than any estimations. So, here is a list of factors which could contribute to the BDI rating.
how many implementations?
how much are nodes spread between bitcoin core and alternative implementations?
how many unique locations (e.g data centres, individual homes/offices or whatever)
how many jurisdictions? (as in, in what actual countries/states/provinces are they hosted or controlled from)
how many actual people in control of them?
how many implementations?
how many hardware wallets are available?
how many are using centralized wallets e.g Coinbase vs running their own node vs using SPV?
how spread out is the ecosystem?
how many are interopable with eachother? (e.g able to use a 12 word phrase on multiple wallets)
how many individual users/wallets do we know about?
what is the hashrate / mining difficulty currently? (this is an easy one)
how many miners are out there?
how many mining pools?
how many jurisdictions are miners in?
how spread out is the hash rate?
how many people/companies control them? (some may have multiple?)
how many jurisdictions?
how spread out is the volume?
how much trade volume is there?
how many jurisdictions?
how much BTC are exchanges holding? (less is better)
how much are decentralized or semi-decentralized exchanges being used, such as localbitcoins, mycelium local trader and things like the Counterparty DEX?
payment processors (e.g BitPay)
how many jurisdictions?
how spread out is the merchant base?
how many merchants do we know of that are NOT using third party processors? (this is a plus)
how many merchants and payment processors are utilizing payment channels?
how many jurisdictions?
how much volume are they moving?
how many bitcoin community and information sources are there?
how many people are in control of them?
how many jurisdictions?
how many known community members are there? (e.g there is 160,000+ subscribers on the subreddit)
how spread out is the community?
how many developers are working directly on core infrastructure (i.e, Bitcoin Core and other protocol implementations)?
how spread out are the developers between different implementations/forks etc.?
how many companies are involved? also, how many of the developers do they employ?
how many jurisdictions are these people from?
how many known BTC addresses with a balance (or balance > 0.1 BTC or something)?
how evenly is the total BTC supply spread out between those addresses?
what is the current price & market cap of BTC?
how many transactions are happening per day?
total daily transaction volume?
how many pure BTC "value" transactions are happening vs. things like faucets and other tiny payments, color coins, counterparty, factom etc.
I personally don't have time to do all the research, so I'm just throwing this idea out there. Also probably some other factors I did not think about (or maybe some of those above do not even matter). Any thoughts? TL;DR we should come up with some sort of scoring system to actually measure the level of decentralization in bitcoin
Why the top 4 cryptocurrency's Market Cap are deceptively misleading.
Market cap is a great and terrible way to value a coin. On one end, it establishes the value of a perfect market place and on the other, its deceiving. Here are some reasons to be skeptical of market cap
Bitcoin- Probably the most realistic market cap of the list. 9 years of establishing value among millions of people. All coins bought and mined for. No criticism, but is the benchmark that all cryptos are compared.
Ethereum- The community has taken an crypto-coin that was designed to solve problems and started using it as a cryptocurrency. There currently is no limit to the number of ETH that will be produced, there is no proposed inflation, and there will be a POS hardfork There are 20,000 new coins a day, all being included in the marketcap, sold or held.
Ripple- The reason I became fascinated in market cap. Out of the 39B ripple, 20B of it is not allowed to be sold and held by the founders. This deceptively doubles the market cap, which is realistically under less than 20B. Not to mention another 61% of ripple is held by ripple labs.
BCash- A hard fork takes the mining power of Bitcoin and attributes it to their own market cap. The exchange Circle Pay never gave millions of users BCH, but BCH has included these coins and others into their market cap despite no one paying for them.
Outside those top 4, we start seeing why there is a gigantic gap. -Cardano- The first comparable coin to Bitcoin. No criticisms here. Finite number of coins. -Litecoin- Aside from coinbase insider trading pump, no criticisms on market cap. Finite number of coins. You can see this process over and over as you go down the list. Faucet coins growing much faster than POW coins since the supply is much higher and benefits more from swings. POW coins need to be sold causing inflation, but this is very dependent on difficulty. Be skeptical of Market cap to determine value, technology is more important than a top 10 list
Erowid, a non-profit drug educational organization, gives a detailed look at how they used Bitcoin as a source of donations since March 2011
I recently sent Erowid a question about their Bitcoin donations (the quoted parts) and I got an extremely detailed reply about their history with Bitcoin donations. Thought I would share. But first, here is a link for donating with a wide range of crypto-currencies.
Thanks! We really appreciate it. Bitcoin is one of the most useful and interesting new payment systems since zero-fee paypal in 1999, which has ended up nothing at all like it started. It's now a very useful email-address-based gateway to the giant international VISA/MC conglomerate. It's a handy system, but that whole transaction skimming conspiracy is a little disturbing, costly, and monopolistic.
I was looking at your address and see that it is only a month old, yet you have been accepting Bitcoin since Mar 2011. In the spirit of openness I'm curious about why you changed addresses and
Many Bitcoin advocates and technologists state that a new address for every transaction is actually the right way to improve privacy and to firewall tracking of payments and transactions. I believe that viewpoint is kind of the opposite of openness, it is based on trying to keep people's transactions more private, despite the entire BTC blockchain database being fully public and exposed. I spent some time a couple years ago trying to get a server-based wallet set up that would generate a new address for each transaction and it wound up being a lot harder than I could get working reliably. The more unique addresses, the less erowid donors are tied together, thus a little more privacy. We will try again at some point. Currently, we keep a local bitcoin wallet and backups and rotate the BTC addresses every month or three, depending on a variety of factors.
and how much you received on your previous ones. Also I would like to know if you hold a fraction of Bitcoin or convert all to fiat directly.
At the moment, I can give you a rough outline of how we choose when to sell bitcoins. It different than people who are on the buying end. We have always conceived of BTC as 'micro donations', but some number of people over the years (let's say 30) have asked directly to pay for a membership with BTC instead of other methods. In order for that to make sense as an organization, we need to convert those bitcoins around the time of the donation so that the donation in bitcoin results in the amount near the dollar value that the donor was offering. So, for a t-shirt that might be a $45 donation. If/when that happens, we transfer the appropriate number of bitcoins out on or near that day to convert BTC into USD. Then we can enter that person's donation into our donation system and the accounting matches up: person gets a $45 membership, we get $45 into our bank account. Accounting is fun! :\ Further, because we are entirely a donation-based non-profit, we are always in the position of trying to have BTC donations be of non-zero USD value to the organization. That means selling them at some point. The question of when to sell them is obviously complicated. One can view BTC as a deflating currency or an investment or a security or maybe a commodity. We are generally conservative about them and have mostly sold the BTC we've received within a few months of their donation in order to generate USD for the organization. So, say we got 1 bitcoin 2 years ago when they were worth $30 each. If it wasn't tied directly to getting a sweatshirt or otherwise needed to wind up as a row in our banking records, I would hold onto to the coin and wait for a time when the value of BTC was going upwards and sell that bitcoin for more than it was worth when we received it. But I did not hold onto them for years, since that defeats the purpose of supporting the organization and it locks up the bitcoin trading market if everyone holds and never sells. However, the goal is always to wind up with money in the bank sooner rather than later, since we run a business. As far as previous addresses go, I believe that the reasoning behind the privacy concept is NOT to give out previous addresses, though obviously it's a tiny figleaf. We sold 1 BTC last week when the value hit $500 and another this week when the value hit $600 and will probably sell again if the price continues to rise. If I had a completely configurable trading system, I would likely set a sell order for 1BTC at $675 OR sell 0.5 BTC in 14 days if the price is >= $600. My reality is that I have to make the sales manually, because I don't have a reliable trading site that delivers to my US bank. The vast majority of total bitcoins we've sold were sold for under $30 a piece. When we opened our first bitcoin address to check out the system, The Faucet gave me 1 BTC just to help get the ball rolling. Obviously such things no longer exist and we're in a period where bitcoins are both volatile AND valuable. We had one donor give us some bitcoin back in early December and requested we wait to sell it until it hit $1200, but ALSO required that we open a separate account at a bitcoin trading company that took two weeks to complete as the company confirmed our banking information and identity, etc. By the time we'd gotten the new account set up, we were well into the price crash and so we are holding onto that bitcoin for some future price that is closer to what the person donated it at. On the other hand, we received several BTC last september when they were in the 100-200$ range and we sold all of those at between $800 and $1200 each in late november and early december as the price was running up. That was actually during the fall of MtGox who was our only trade location until October, 2013. I had initiated a sale of two bitcoins in early September and six weeks later, MtGox had not deposited the money in our account and had no estimate for when they would do it. Happily, they credited my account the USD, I bought BTC, and moved them back to an offline wallet. I'm not sure how to be both transparent AND private, but I can tell you the current address is typical of better months from the last year. We currently get a few hundred dollars a month in BTC, unless we're doing a big fundraising push, in which case we get double or triple that. With the price increase in the last 14 days, May was a good month. Happy to answer more questions and chat about how we manage bitcoin, but the main concepts to keep in mind are : trying to limit the exposure of blockchains for privacy reasons, trying to optimize for USD coming into our budget, generally being conservative so we will choose to sell rather than hold bitcoins, and having a rule of never selling all our bitcoins but selling off parts of what we receive over time to reduce risks and exposure. We currently use coinbase and bitpay, after having gone through 10 or so different BTC->USD systems. What we need is reliable and stable and most of the others have run afoul of the federal money cops in the US and have been shut down or had their banking connection shut down. I'm always interested in recommendations for other trading / sales sites, but we need one that can deposit into a US bank for it to be useful for erowid center. And we need one that is stable, represents a real business, and is unlikely to poof into a cloud of oily smoke. I see today we got a .01 and a .05 bitcoin donation to the current address, bringing our total for the last month up to .654 ish, which is great! With the price heading upwards (rather than hovering at $400), that's actually a useful amount of money. Thanks! Looking at the charts today, it seems like a lot of people decided to start selling as the price hit 650+ and so the price had a small crash today while I wasn't paying attention. Anyway, hope some of that is useful. Erowid Center's budget (income and expenditures) are all public information, but our list of donors is not and we do what we can to protect the privacy of the people who choose to support our controversial project. Thanks again for your contribution! Hurray that you didn't have to pay VISA 0.35 + 2% to do it. earth
