I also pledge 10 bitcoins. I think it would be great to make the EFF aware of Bitcoin, because it seems like exactly the kind of project that they would understand and support. In the (sadly) likely event of future legal issues involving the status of bitcoins, it would be good if the major players in the world of electronic freedom and free software had previous knowledge and understood the project's goals.

I actually talked about Bitcoin with the EFF chairman a few days ago, he said it sounds cool and forwarded the link to some other EFF people. Smiley

We got a big jump to 90 bitcoins with noagendamarket.  Grin

Keep them coming folks. Show your appreciation for EFF for protecting our electronic freedom.

This is a great idea. Not only does it raise interest within the EFF ranks, but it also has the ability to bring more attention to Bitcoin if EFF does happen to really enjoy the idea.

I'll pledge 50 BTC if EFF mentions Bitcoin in public. Whether it be their website, twitter, donation button...whatever.

I'm liking how this is going, and I've been meaning to donate to EFF for awhile, so I'll put some more skin in the game. I am going to match both noagendamarket's and dejayl's pledges and conditions - so that is another 140 bitcoins pledged from me. Same conditions as their donations - 50 if they setup a node, an additional 90 if they add a 'donate bitcoins' button somewhere on their website.

As I'm trying to start an escrow service anyway, I'll volunteer my services if they're needed, although it would be even sweeter if they accepted bitcoins on their website.

We're at 420 bitcoins now!

But we need to set a goal.

How many bitcoins this thread should try to raise?

Recounted. It was 540 instead of 630.  Sad


Any more donors?
