Converting bitcoin to fiat?  No thanks.
Instead of dropping fiat from the sky to some random people on the street, while everyone forgets it was bitcoin a minute ago, I prefer you take a homeless guy to a restaurant that accepts bitcoin and I WILL PAY for his meal! make a video of me paying a homless guy for the meal across the world with bitcoin!  , hell make 20 videos of those kind of ideas!

You do realize that the restaurant would be using a service like bitpay to immediately exchange the bitcoin to fiat, right?  Your stance is incredibly ignorant.  However, MrDove has repeatedly stated his goal is to encourage others to do similar events.  It sounds like he's inspired you to buy a meal for a homeless person and I hope you follow through with your idea.  If you want to participate in this idea, the donation address is on the OP as well as my second post.   Wink

Step 2: When the polar bear comes to take a pea, kick him in the ice hole.

You are taking this idea the wrong way!

Instead of dropping fiat from the sky to some random people on the street, while everyone forgets it was bitcoin a minute ago, I prefer you take a homeless guy to a restaurant that accepts bitcoin and I WILL PAY for his meal! make a video of me paying a homless guy for the meal across the world with bitcoin!  , hell make 20 videos of those kind of ideas!


No. You idea is just very wrong to begin with. You are trying to promote bitcoin and you think that poor people are just a tool and a dummies who will look nice on a promotional video.. I can assure you poor people do not care about bitcoin at all.

Bitcoin is money at the end of the day. But you are right, some beggars just want alcohol and some just want shelter.
But bitcoin (in some parts of the world) can give you those things.

Sure they will be using Bitpay, I have no doubt.
Ask any reasonable man and woman, what would be a smarter thing to do, throw money from the sky or buy a homeless a hot meal from across the world (which would show how simple it is to donate / transfer money over bitcoin).  you can't swipe a credit card at a resaurant from across the world..

Excuse me, but what was the point of throwing money from the sky to random people on the street? If it's pure donation purpose then I would prefer donating personally.

What was the reason bitcoin created for anyway ?

Largest donation yet. Thank you Equinoxx!

We are all very proud that you are thinking of ways to donate to charity. I wish you loads of success with your idea.

Excuse me, but what was the point of throwing money from the sky to random people on the street? If it's pure donation purpose then I would prefer donating personally.

I have stated the point. We hope to "encourage others to do positive things" & "inspire others to participate in similar events". If you have been inspired to donate something personally then I already consider this event a success.

It doesn't matter if it was done before. For reasons;
1. This is bitcoin
2. If someone recorded a fundraiser doesn't mean there shouldn't be any others Smiley
3. This is bitcoin!

I didn't post the video to hate on the op. If you actually read the thread a lot of people were optimistic if it would actually work. And I posted the video as proof as its a good idea and works well.

Sorry, I didn't mean to be hostile! Cheesy
As CrackedLogic said, this is one of the best ideas ( In Bitcoin )
I hope this does well.

That's awesome.  Maybe MrDove and the donators could consider sending the BTC held in escrow to Dennis Roady Deeds if there isn't enough for an event?

Great video with a more civil approach. We are not ready to give up on this idea yet though. If we do call off the event then the bitcoins can be donated however people see fit.


Thanks! Your donations keep us positive about our hopes to make this happen.

MrDove is an acronym for a new charity event and a poke at the dovish behavior of the Federal Reserve bank.

Money
Raining
Down
Over
Vagrant
Environments

MrDove's intent is to donate money to the homeless in a unique and uplifting way that encourages others to do positive things. The MrDove team will produce a serious yet entertaining video with the hopes of inspiring others to participate in similar events. All donated bitcoins will be converted to dollars and dropped from a DJI built drone over an area of poverty-stricken Americans. The event will be recorded by several HD cameras and a link to the YouTube video will be tweeted from @MrDoveMoneyDrop.

Please consider making a donation to the designated escrow account.

Are you promoting this anywhere other than this forum? I followed your twitter account but it only has one tweet and it directs people here.

That's a great idea. He would probably do this video and would be good for the bitcoin community.

Not much. We reached out to a few businesses that accept bitcoins but they did not respond.

No website or page with info for non-bitcointalk members?

I'm sending you a PM. I'll be happy to help promote this where I can and I trust OgNasty's judgement, but if I'm going to vouch for you myself, I'll need a little direct confirmation that you are legit. I hope you don't take offense but I've been burned before.

Still around.
