There are a lot of threads out there collecting bounties and trying to raise BTC for various projects to promote bitcoins.
I just created a site that I think will make this process easier.
It allows people to form groups. These groups have a fee to join which goes into the group treasury. The group members then vote to determine how to spend the group treasury.
Basically it allows you to form a mini-democracy.

It is still in alpha so a lot of things don't work correctly yet. But the basic functionality does.

Anyway check it out and let me know what you think: http://FiveGrinder.com

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

I used it to create the first ever mutual aid society for bitcoin, the Bitcoin Mutual Aid Association! http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1395.0


I think if you submit a name too long, it will redirect you to a "Group not found", but the group is created already.

Is there a way to manage the budget? I want to be able to hold 50% of bitcoins in the treasury from being spent at any time.

You can set the budget of any proposal. So just make the one you want passed to be 50% of the total.

I have a feeling that the democratic system of your website will leave most of the organizations' treasury empty.

The proposal phrase in the BMAA fivegrinder group is 27 years. WTF?

Also, how do you get funds distributed? I was forced to donate 17.5 BTC of my own money to the CCC because the proposal somehow failed to have an effect on the treasury.
