I was rather surprised to see Bruno's posts about Bitcoin100 deciding to donate money to the Bitcoin Documentary film idea (fielded by a member who AFAIA has mostly only posted in the Speculation board previously).

I don't know if I am alone in this thinking but I thought that Bitcoin100 was created to help charities and I don't see how making a documentary film about Bitcoin really fits into that vain (it seems to be rather a world apart in my view at least).

I have been a supporter of the original Bitcoin100 idea (and was one of the initial donators to it) and I would like to be convinced that this is a good idea so perhaps this could be answered.

Please note that this is not intended as any sort of trolling thread but just to gauge what other Bitcoin100 donators think about this.

Bitcoin100 has very clearly been about propaganda and spreading BTC interests from the start.

Me? I'm just the cynical voice floating in the sea of unchecked optimism.

Bitcoins can be sent anywhere you want.
Maybe he thinks is a good idea investing there, no?

Advertising is a good idea  Wink There is a reason why so much money is invested in marketing: the gain will be much much more than the expense  Wink

Yea but bitcoin100 doesn't call itself an advertising firm now does it?
