Is there any list of addresses of the current bitcoind (+qt) coders? I would like to make donations to the project without doing it through the Bitcoin Foundation (I don't like that Jon Matonis is in there)

Thanks!

http://bitcoin.org/en/support-bitcoin points to the Bitcoin Foundation and I doubt there's another supported way to donate money to the project, unless you're OK with tipping specific developers personally.

I doubt they are hurting for money, (not to sound negative) but I believe Bitcoin can be helped by funding it by other means. However I could be wrong I don't know if they are asking for any returns for their work.

Sure, mine is: 1B2fZN58SD4JqaTitHmBLcSo89GfUtvWZ3

Btw xenland you would be surprised. We're not compensated in any way.

If you intended to mean "direct" compensation I can agree, but I guess i was pointing out that usually people do things as an incentive and if the "core" dev team is still on board and do not get direct payments i'd have to say their "personal" investment increases over time (every 4 years?) and during bitcoin upgrades which in turn is their payment (or incentive).

I don't understand you. Do you mean that "investing" in bitcoin, and thus profiting from price rises (and suffering from price drop) is a kind of compensation for dev work? How do you correlate that to upgrades of the software at all, does the price rise consistently with upgrades?

If that's what you mean I have to disagree with you. After all, anyone can buy and sell bitcoins, and profit (or lose) without writing a line of code or running one test case. Personally I'm way to busy with both my day job and open source projects to do trading or such, so you could say it runs the other way.

There is nothing extra in it for developers. This is not meant as complaint, as the open source development I do is because it is fun working on a large-scale, high-impact project such as this, and not to fish for donations. But if you think there is some magical pot of coins guarded by the core developers that we only get to share in, that's a painful misunderstanding.

Having said that, if there was a chance to do open source development on bitcoin full-time and get paid I'd probably take it.

For personal funding, I'd recommend https://gittip.com

And for sponsoring feature/bugs: https://fundhub.org

I have a gittip account, but they don't support BTC yet. I've heard they are working on it. Fundhub looks interesting tho.
