An address seems to have been posted on the i2p site:
http://www.i2p2.de/donate.html

Unfortunately... it is neither of the two addresses posted so far...
I hope the situation with "max stirner" is resolved - hopefully he's legit and will forward the donation to the i2p project...

otherwise... i guess we can let that be a lesson that a donation address is not a valid address until posted on the official project site...

I wouldn't think that any thief would expose himself like that for the sake of a few free bitcoins. In my opinion what probably happened was echelon was testing his client and transferred a few coins back and forth to see how this works - creating new address each time. Then he just put the newest address he got on the website.

Hi!

First: SORRY for all problems.
I just did not know the fact of different IDs generated by bitcoin pointing to my account
I just clicked "copy ID to clipboard" and entered that one in my contacts.
Current state is 200 coins - I guess all arrived here so far. I just know I mentioned at 3 different IDs.
On 1AZSQqST...  I received 44 coins.
On 1JHYGshG8... I received 106,27 coins
On 1HkJCceXf... I received 56 coins yet and 100 witing to be acked.

I will now only publish the ID 1HkJCceXf7of1sTNRVJbXiZHfDTLL71Siy in all mails, forum, webpages I use.
I even changed it on echelon.i2p.

Sorry again for all the problems, tricked by the technical department.
and I hope this clarifies some fuzzle.

P.S.: yeah, I dated some entries to far in future ;-) changed, to.

Please notice that if you want to use a different address for each donation, you can.

A small CGI script can do the trick.  See there :

That generates a new address for new CGI script invocation (== each page view).

An attacker, or just a popular web page, could fill your wallet with never-used addresses.

Well, a new address would only be generated on each visit of the "donate" page, not the main page.  I don't think it would be that much space consuming on disk.

Also, is there any other way to prevent public to know how much have been donated ?

getaccountaddress is designed for exactly this kind of thing-- it will return the same address over and over, until it gets used (until somebody donates).  After that, it returns a different address...

Of course, if "the public" is grabbing the donation address off your "Donate to Us" page, they could generate a list of donation addresses, add up the donations received on all those addresses, and figure it out.  Depending on how many donations you're getting that might be easy (scrape the page once per day) or hard (if you're getting dozens of donations per day).

You could make it much harder for anybody to figure out how much you're getting in donations by randomly donating to yourself (using the same address returned by getaccountaddress), preferably from a wallet shared by lots of other people (like a MyBitcoin or Mt.Gox account)... 


How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

Well, if a CGI script generates a new address (or account number ?) for each visit, there is no way the public could make a list of used address, could it ?  I mean, each address would be visible by the donator and by the donator only, right ?
