I have just received an email from echelon, that I2P will now accept donations in
Bitcoins!

I2P is an anonymizing network, offering a simple layer that identity-sensitive applications can use to securely communicate. All data is wrapped with several layers of encryption, and the network is both distributed and dynamic, with no trusted parties.

Many applications are available that interface with I2P, including mail, peer-peer, IRC chat, and others.
It is a lot faster than the freenet project.

http://www.i2p2.de

Please donate to:  1AZSQqSTSwSogJspcgjvzsrCvKmAsf42rT


I hope he will soon post a link on the I2P website.

Done!  I think charitable contributions are a great way to promote Bitcoin.  How could someone say no to accepting donations that way?  I can see why some merchants might be opposed to the idea of accepting Bitcoins at this point, due to fluctuating exchange rates and the relative difficulty of performing exchanges, but when you're getting something for nothing, who cares?

C'mon everyone, open up your wallets for I2P!

If you have any doubts - then wait with your donations until echelon has put the address on
the i2p website.

I directly emailed echelon, and he gives a different bitcoin address than "Max Stirner" at the top of the thread:

Quote
I2P does accept bitcoin on 1JHJYGshG8Ds9XXHbXuTrDkf8XAXzNhi5c for the
I2P project.
Due to some other jobs I did not updated the webpage yet. Will be done
this weekend.

The bitcoin client generates a new bitcoin address every time a donation is recieved to an old one (to make spying on peoples finances with the block chain more difficult). I have 2, my starting one and the one that was generated after I got my faucet bitcoins. So if echelon reopened his bitcoin client when he sent the email he would have sent a different address.

I was browsing I2P today when I stumbled upon this:

From http://echelon.i2p.to/ (aka "echelon.i2p" from within the I2P network):

Added bitcoin to the list of way donating something to the I2P project.
Use the ID 1JHJYGshG8Ds9XXHbXuTrDkf8XAXzNhi5c to transmit your bitcoin to.

Edit: 2011? Man, this guy is from the future or something! Tongue

no it doesn't. you can receive on a single address multiple times.

I think ptd is referring to the way the contents of the "Your bitcoin address" field changes automatically after you receive on the old address.

The keyword is 'can'. If a donation is sent to an address is effectively marked used and a new one is generated. So echelon's client would generate a new address because money had been sent the old one. This feature exists to improve anonymity.

this feature exists.
you might use it to improve anonymity.

but you can also use a single donation-address for the rest of your (or your projects) lifetime,
why not? people know, who they're donating to anyway, don't they?
and it even prooves to everyone how much donations have been received by that address/project, which might be good or bad, depending on who you ask/are.

I actually do see a bitcoin address on the I2p webpage.


This is good news.  I'll give 1 BTC.
