Why does there need to be a new rank?  The forum doesn't need any money, it's not using the money that has already been donated.

The only thing this would do is make you feel cool because you had something different next to your name.  That does not seem like a good enough reason to add a new rank.

well, if the forum holds and never uses 10% of all btc, this will only push the btc price up higher in usd  Wink

holding that much btc is not good as if someone dumped all that btc it would crash BTC

I never use my BTC until I spend it  Smiley

it would be better to replace the word never with ( haven't yet )

A new rank would give people the opportunity to show their commitment to the community as represented by the crowd on these forums.
If that is a good thing or not...

It would certainly also offer opportunities to scammers.

My humble opinion: if there's demand, let them have their 1-BTC-rank.

All free men, wherever they may live, can use Bitcoin, and, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words "Ich bin ein Bitcoiner!"

As Bitcoin fell from $30 to $2, there were a few folks that bought Donator and especially VIP status exclusively to use that status to scam people.

Don't trust VIPs or Donators because they have VIP or Donator status. It could be they bought that status in order to scam you.

I can't imagine why folks keep asking for other donation levels unless they intend to scam people or inject some false/artificial sense of trust. Or to try to bully scammer tags on people.
