1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Ask charities if they accept bitcoin on: November 13, 2013, 03:57:39 AM
After seeing the tragedy unfolding in the Philippines over the last couple of days, I felt the need to donate to a disaster relief charity here in UK (http://www.dec.org.uk/appeals/philippines-typhoon-appeal).

I was pleasantly surprised that the charity accepts donations via PayPal, which led me to send an email to them to ask whether they had considered accepting BTC too.  It then struck me that if a charity were to receive lots of similar requests, they could begin to consider it as a means of receiving donations.  After all, charities are pretty hard up these days and are always looking for innovative ways of raising money.  BTC seems absolutely perfect for charitable giving/receiving, especially across international borders: no transaction fees = more money straight to the charity.

Then, with my speculative hat on Tongue I figured that if a big name charity were to begin to accept BTC it could generate lots of positive publicity ("Oxfam accepts Bitcoin", etc).

Let us all bombard household name charities with requests for them to accept BTC (obviously, you must be willing to donate something too!).
2  Economy / Exchanges / Coinfloor - new UK exchange - thoughts? on: November 05, 2013, 08:45:49 PM
Have any fellow Brits opted for opening an account with Coinfloor?

They started accepting account registrations on Tue 29 Oct.  After registering that day, a week later my post-logon landing page still says "Thanks! Please await further instructions by email. It will take us up to 2 working days to process your application."

Just wondering if anyone else here has made any further progress with Coinfloor.  And any thoughts anyone may have on their potential?
