As said before, it looks like I have actually convinced the german privacy foundation to accept donations using bitcoins.

Can someone verify they are currently not doing so?
I confirm that (but apparently they also accept cash). Also, for convenience of fellow non-German speakers who would also like to take a look, here's the Google Translate link.

Ha, they finally did it (just received email from them): https://www.privacyfoundation.de/verein/spenden/

Btw: I told them about the bounty and that I would donate half of it, should I receive it. I hope that doesn't disqualify me and I will receive the bounty for convincing an organization to accept Bitcoin for donations?

They also told me the developers liked the idea of selling the CryptoStick for bitcoin, but don't currently have an interface to their shop-system. I will offer my help, of course.

This is a bit off-topic, as it's not eligible for a bounty, but DOSBox now accepts Bitcoin donations. I think this is evidence in favor of the effectiveness of the community pledge model.

Where do we have list(s) of entities which accept Bitcoin? This should be added, along with other successes of this thread.

There's a wiki-page for that: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade

So you can edit yourself Wink

Hey Mahkul,

Okay guys, I have put up the spreadsheets containing sponsors and persuaders. Smiley

http://www.editgrid.com/user/mahkul/Earn_BTC_for_promoting_Bitcoin

Let me know if you see any mistakes in it - or, even more importantly, once the status should be changed from pending to complete. Smiley

Are you still maintaining that spreadsheet? If so I would like to give you some coinage for doing that, because I think it's a good idea. Address?

I suggest you split line 17, "German Privacy Foundation" into two entries, one for their accepting btc as donation as an organisation fighting for privacy and one for their shop selling products. The former you can set to COMPLETED (see my previous post(s)), the shop is still in the works and will take more time.

I also suggest you could put a column "bounty received" to track the payment of bounties? Is that a good idea? If so you can put the BTC 2.5 I received from Blitzboom for German Privacy Foundation (organisation).

Sweet, sent you 10 BTC and sent 2 BTC to the privacy foundation.

I just send a message to the german "BüSo" political party. They have a strong goal of reforming the global finance market. Maybe this will be right sown their ally.

By the way, should we maybe collect bounties somewhere so that the full reward comes in at once?
Just what I was going to suggest. I wanted to write about it later, but since you beat me to it I'll go ahead.

If we want this drive to be successful and scalable, it needs to be better organized. I propose the following:

1. We agree on a uniform set of rules for eligibility for a bounty. Those in the OP seem good to me, but we need to clarify in what form we would like the entity to announce its support for Bitcoin (a separate page without any link to it is not good enough IMO).
2. Mahkul will create a MyBitcoin account to collect pledges.
3. Pledgers will post, either here or in a PM to Mahkul, how much they will pay for each conversion, and how much they wish to deposit. They will send the pledge to the MyBitcoin account.
4. Mahkul will update the spreadsheet with the pledges and deposits for each.
5. As we have now, persuaders will announce their intention in advance, it will be checked and added to the spreadsheet.
5. If the attempt is successful, the persuader will post news of the success, along with a receiving address.
6. Mahkul will judge eligibility according to the rules specified. If it's valid, he will send the total amount, and deduct the appropriate amount from the deposits of each pledger.
7. If a pledger sees his deposit is running dry, he can choose to either deposit more or discontinue his pledge.

Sorry, I have been away for the weekend. I will update the spreadsheet in about an hour and also will send the outstanding pledges.

Thanks for your support!

I prefer to manage my own bounty. Especially for this scenario where there is not one single bounty, it makes more sense to me for each individual to check the spreadsheet every now and again and send out payments when needed.

Yes, I think so too. Also, keeping all BTC in one mybitcoin account would be VERY confusing.

I think the best idea would be to add a few columns to the spreadsheet with the pledgers' names and give them access to it. This way each person could mark on it that the pledge was sent. Besides, I could use some help with maintaining the sheet anyway.

Any volunteers?

I've sent e-mail to korwin-mikke.pl and h-rp.co

Sorry, but h-rp.co has a google pagerank of 0, thus it will not qualify for the reward. You may still get them to accept BTC, though. Wink

They currently don't solicit donations at all, I wonder what they'll think of this.

Hmm, seems like a way or me to get bitcoins.
I will attempt to convince landover baptist forums to accept bitcoins as a way to donate to the sites. (landoverbaptistforums.net)

It seems like this page has no google pagerank, I don't think it will qualify for the reward.

OK guys, I think I have updated everything. I have added the "Bounty already sent by" column where we can mark who already received their reward from whom.

Sorry about the delay with updating the spreadsheet - I have been really busy with my exchange project (shameless ad: https://bitmarket.eu). Wink

Please let me know if you see any mistakes or have any suggestions. I know this is not ideal, especially if we get more pledgers/persuaders the spreadsheet may not be enough and I may not be able to be updating it quick enough.

Perhaps someone would be interested to give me a hand with the spreadsheet, especially some of the pledgers?
