Right now, we have $5 set as the default. Mostly, this is based on $5 being common in app stores (such as google play, apple app store, amazon app store) conditioning users to spend $5 for an app. Other studies say optimal price is $1.99.

The only way to truly learn the optimal price ($ donated vs. downloads) is to experiment.

On the donations page we suggest $100 is a good default for Paypal.

But we pick $5 as a good default for Bitcoin.

I'd think $100 would be a nicer default for Bitcoin too. Somewhere out there are really rich bitcoin people after all. :)

Been at $10 for the past 5 weeks. Will start compiling the data to see if $10 or $5 resulted in more donations, in some world. Not sure how to make this a statistically valid comparison given uncontrolled external factors.

Mike says $10 is what mozilla found as optimal. Leaving it at that for now.
