Juice Rap News joins Bitcoin’s struggle

Juice Rap News relies heavily on viewer support and is fortunate to receive donations from people all around the world – it helps us to remain completely independent.

Most donations, however, come to us via PayPal (booo), and since the illegal banking blockade on WikiLeaks, in which PayPal still participates, we have become more and more uncomfortable with this situation. Over the past year we have also been receiving regular and sometimes rather insistent emails asking why on earth we were not accepting Bitcoin donations. (“Do you accept them?! If not, will you?” – is one of the latest).

It was awesome to see so many people being passionate about the value of a system which allows them to support causes they love without enriching the Reichstags of PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, etc. Whilst we can’t yet afford *not* to accept PayPal entirely, it still being the most popular form of donation, we understand that Bitcoin at least gives people the choice to use other methods to support us.

We want to thank the many people who took the time to write to us to explain how the system worked and to Amir for helping to set ourselves up. Apologies for having taken so damn long to join the Bitcoin community; had we realized just how incredibly easy it was, we would’ve done so a lot sooner. Importantly, if alternative currencies like Bitcoin can gain traction and become increasingly accepted worldwide, this could become a true source of competition for the current monopoly.

The internet and people’s passion and creativity have made possible new and ingenious systems – like Wikileaks and Bitcoin – with the potential to seriously challenge and reform the monopolies on the flow of information and wealth which have ruled the world for centuries, and which are now tightening their grip on anyone who threatens their hegemony and the political structures that prop them up.

We figured that the only way to make this alternative future a reality is to join the movement and help the Bitcoin community grow. We are excited to finally be part of it and hope to play a part in increasing its popularity amongst all those who are not yet aware of it. Thank you for all your support: we’re proud to finally be able to accept Bitcoin donations.

I told them two days ago that I would donate if they put up a Bitcoin address. He contacted me telling me they would, and then two days later did.  Grin

Damn, you people are fast. Maybe the OP wants to update with their statement:
http://bitcoinmedia.com/juice-rap-news-joins-bitcoins-struggle/

I contacted them a year ago about Bitcoin & Free (as in Freedom!) OpenSource Software, and sending them emails about all these things every so often. I wanted them to mention OpenSource Software in one of their videos since it's related & cool (people around the world joining together to build gigantic systems).

They messaged me a few days ago about Bitcoin, saying that I wasn't the only one bugging them Smiley Niiice.

note to amir: maybe you should remove the donation address from your article and link to their donation page instead.

why? because if i wanted to donate i should double-check that it goes to the right person. and by copy-pasting from your site i have to trust an additional person.  as a "bitcoin-sage" you are setting precedents how people will handle this stuff, and people might get sloppy about this and get scammed.

Lol, I asked them back in April 2011. Even got an email back today, saying they accepted donations now. Well organized!

Hehe, it seems a lot of us mailed them and it worked Wink

Maybe they'll mention bitcoin in one of their videos at some point, that'd be awesome. Maybe have Richard Stallman in it: "yo, propritary software is unethical, we need a way to pay anonymously...".

They just released a new video. This would be the first time they released a video after accepting bitcoin donations.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

Cool, donation sent.
