Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and Bither are OK.)

The longer this thread goes on, the more stale the pledges are going to be as people forget or leave the community.

I propose someone swiftly volunteer to be the escrow, and get people to donate their pledge. If people don't trust the escrow in question, please speak up.

10 acknowledgement from other users will make the volunteer the official EFF escrow person.

How about you Kiba?

I'd do it but I only have 10 posts here.

I'll kick in 10 BTC for this worthy cause, although I'd like to know that it is a BTC address that is under the control of the EFF and not somebody else.

The trick is to contact the EFF and have them acknowledge the project in some semi-official capacity at least so far as having an address which can receive the coins.  That effort has been happening already so far as drafting a letter to them, and it will be interesting to see their reaction in terms of donations.  600 BTC is worth enough that they can at least kick the exchanges into high gear if they wish to "spend" it right away.

We could write that X Bitcoins are currently in escrow, and that several more Bitcoiners would like to donate directly. What better incentive for the EFF to create their own account and learn about us?

(No, I didn't just volunteer to be the escrow!)

It appears that I am nominated for the roles of escrow. Nobody wants to volunteer but nobody wants to acknowledge me either.

Three people aye Kiba for escrow. Seven more to go. If EFF set up a node before the aye is done, than there are no need for an escrow.

However, I would still like some more pledges. I know it's not all of you, yet.

I vote that kiba is the escrow.I have one suggestion though, set up a mybitcoin account and give the username and password to the EFF which would mean they don't have to actually set up a client if they dont want too. There may be some reason they can't set up a node however a mybitcoin account gives them an easy option to participate in the bitcoin economy.

Yes. And I'll need escrow address soon. I'll be on vacation for a couple of weeks starting Wednesday.
