Hello all,

I am starting a fundraiser for Stefan Molyneux / Freedomain Radio.

If you enjoy his commentary/videos/philosophy you can donate by sending your coins here:

(This is a mybitcoin account that I will hand over to him in 30 days).

Cheers!

I'm not going to send them now, but if he acknowledges that he's interested I'm in for 500BTC.

I figure if I don't hear from him I'll auction the coins publicly and have the winner drop PayPal into his account. Smiley

That's acceptable to me, but I would love it so much if he had a bitcoin address, I'd probably compulsively drop coins in it after every podcast (which is really really often if anyone doesn't know).

Oh sure. I'm trying to get him to directly adopt Bitcoin; it is my preference as well.

That would be a great thing.

On a side note slightly related to Freedomain Radio Im helping get the Keene Activist Center's new website started and have setup a mybitcoin account for them in the hope they will post a public donation bitcoin button on there.

I have a response from Stefan.

My latest email to him:

Hello Sefan,

No problem. You deserve to get paid for your work. Smiley

One question: have you given any thought to accepting Bitcoin donations
directly on your website?

The Madhatter

His response to my first email:

Quote
Wow thank you so much my friend! Smiley

Best wishes,

Stefan Molyneux, M.A.

Subject: FDR Fundraiser Event

Hello,

I have started a fundraiser for FDR. So far there has been a lot of interest. I'm collecting Bitcoins (an alternative currency suitable for anarchists/cryptoanarchists) for the next 30 days. After 30 days, I will hand these funds over to you.

Here is the announcement on the Bitcoin forums regarding the fundraiser: https://www.bitcoin.org/smf/index.php?topic=1473.0

If you could please send me an email (themadhatter [A7] i2pmail.org), to confirm that all of this is acceptable that would be great.

I'm sure I could gather up at least $1000 (if not more) in 30 days. There are a lot of people on the Bitcoin forums who enjoy your videos/commentary/books.

Thank you,
The Madhatter

Hmm.. Stefan hasn't responded to my 2nd email yet. I'll email him again in a couple of days. He's probably busy.

I've also contacted him about Bitcoin, but he seems to be pretty busy.

I also don't think he really cares that much about money because he made a fortune as a software entrepreneur before becoming a full-time philosopher.

But I think he would like the *ideas* behind Bitcoin. Maybe ask Satoshi to do an interview with him?

I know he made some money, but he definitely wants to raise money from listeners, he mentions it in every third podcast. It makes complete sense to me, he is doing/has done an amazing amount of labor.

Okay, I emailed Stefan and PM'd Satoshi. I think it would be really neat if Stefan could produce a youtube video that contains an interview with Satoshi. Even if it is just a video that has Stefan reading an email of questions answered by Satoshi it would help Bitcoin a lot. Smiley

Hello Stefan,

Would you be interested in conducting an interview with the inventor of
Bitcoin?

Bump!

If you've listened to or read any of Stefan's books that's worth at least 50 cents. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

More correspondence below:

Stefan:

Thanks so much, I don't really know much about bitcoin, would you mind giving me a quick summation?

The Madhatter:

Quote
Hello Stefan,

Sure. In a nutshell it is a decentralized monetary system; a 'bank' that
is fragmented over a peer-to-peer (P2P) network.

I'm sure you are familiar with Bittorrent. Bitcoin is the "bittorrent"
of money. It is the new frontier of money.

It directly takes the power away from those who like to control our
nation's central bank and puts it back into the hands of the people.

The Bitcoin network collectively handles minting of the currency, the
verification of transactions, and prevents double-spending.

Currently, there are 3 markets (forex markets) that set the exchange
rate between Bitcoin and other national currencies (and gold/silver).

The exchange rates are devised based on the supply and demand for the
Bitcoins themselves.

I can elaborate. Do you want me to explain how the minting and transfer
of the coins work?

I will donate generously as soon as I know that he will actually use Bitcoin. I think he will be very interested in Bitcoin once he understands in detail how it works.
