Vote these up:

____
Solution #1: let users 'Pay with Bitcoin' and other donation methods 
In addition to the new 'Pay with PayPal' donation option that Ubuntu gives to users before the they download the desktop install, give users a choice to donate using other methods.

One desirable option would be to donate using bitcoins. Ubuntu could use many of the free software packages out there to build their own bitcoin checkout, or a bitcoin payment service like bitpay.com could be integrated similar to how paypal is currently being used. Other examples would be donating using Google checkout or credit cards.

Reference:
Canonical asks desktop users to "pay what you think Ubuntu is worth"

Now we're 46!  Grin
Though we may consider that not all linux users use Ubuntu, so maybe some linuxers are on Arch linux where they voted for "Arch software center" or Debian users on "Debian software center" to accept Bitcoin...

There may still be hope for the 1st decentralized cryptocurrency which is Bitcoin. How to approach different subjects is key to progress.

This is a great idea but it needs to be expanded to include other services from Canonical including the sales of music, paid software, Ubuntu One and purchases from the dash.

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card
