I am running a couple projects, namely witcoin
and bitcoin markets
, on a single linode 512 vps (and with an exavault evbackup 10gb open remote backup account), however the current individual who has paid the costs of hosting for these projects can no longer do so as of October 28th, 2011. I also cannot afford anything as I haven't made any money since a month or so prior to creating this thread last year.
I would like to ask if there is anything that can be done so as to allow opportunity for me (and others) to continue developing these and futurely other projects.
I have previously discussed with a couple others in various bitcoin-related channels on freenode surrounding this concern, but I haven't made a decision on how to best proceed.
Kind-of-relatedly, if I have opportunity to continue developing bitcoin-related projects including especially the ones listed above, again, I will be preparing an open source release of witcoin sometime in year 2011. I think as an open source project it would allow for better existentiality in the case of my inability to continue it and for others to continue or recreate it identically without reverse engineering or rewriting code-base entirely.
Any thoughts from others is appreciated.
Update: changed thread topic to "Seeking Funding"
One thought I have is that if I can arrange for the projects to be funded by donations, then I could prepare financial transparency similar to http://www.geekshed.net/donate/accounts/
: I found hosting for bitcoin markets courtesy of joepie91 in #bitcoinconsultancy. Thanks! Much appreciation to you (if you're joepie91)! ^_^
