I'm considering donating some btc to a non-profit charity here in the US.  For tax purposes, would this work like donating stock, i.e. I would pay no capital gains on my donation, and then the charity would be able to convert the Bitcoins to cash without any tax consequences?

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

I believe it would works exactly the same as donating any commodity. Food, clothing, bitcoins, they are all non-cash donations and all work the same.

I was wondering the same thing... what if i convert the bitcoins to cash first, and then transfer that to the charity?   I looked up the rules for shares, and its pretty confusing!

or alternatively,  what happens if i transfer BTC to mtgox or tradehill, and get them to bank transfer directly to the charity (so i am never actually holding any cash personally)?  and i mean real charities (Red Cross, whatever), not as a means to avoid paying tax
