Description

As a privacy-focused project that, according to the donation privacy policy, "respects donor privacy" and "welcomes anonymous donations", it would be good if donations via privacy-oriented crypto-currencies would be allowed, instead of only Bitcoin. It is possible to anonymize Bitcoin, but other currencies provide alternative methods that are not possible without being integrated in the currency and are arguably better than anything possible with Bitcoin.

Yes, I was aware of that. But you can only donate via Bitcoin, for which every transaction is publicly visible. With "privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies" I meant the likes of Monero and Zcash, which use different techniques to make transactions more private. Please reopen.

Oh, I can reopen it myself.
