Add Bitcoin Cash or Monero donation address

Hello.

The only cryptocurrency you can donate to Gimp devs is Bitcoin. ​Bitcoin is useless for donations in this state because of huge fees. You can check out this fee chart comparing Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Monero fees in the last 3 months: https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/transactionfees-btc-bch-xmr.html#3m

The average fee for BTC is over $25 at this moment. How much someone would have to want to donate to justify that fee?

It would be cool if you provided official Bitcoin Cash and/or Monero addresses.

Best regards, Piotr

Add Bitcoin Cash or Monero donation address

Hi,

Since the same public and private key is used for Bitcoin cash, it would be sufficient to update the website description to state that both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash are accepted at the current address. There is no need for an additional wallet until you want to spend the Bitcoin Cash at the address.

On another note, I would suggest making sure that the private key for the address is secure, because the Bitcoin donations on it are worth over $350,000 now, and the Bitcoin Cash over $40,000.

Best regards Felix

Add Bitcoin Cash or Monero donation address

Hi Piotr,

I'll forward this to the mailing list because you sent it only to me.

And just to clarify: There is no need to add another address. The current address works for both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, and the same private key that would be used to access the Bitcoin at the address can be used to access the Bitcoin Cash. It just requires a different client.

Best regards Felix

Sure, I'm definitely fine with adding the same Bitcoin Cash address. When BCH address is added I'll assume that someone also checked if they had access to both wallets and I'll then send a donation. So I'd be thankful for the check.

Best regards,
Piotr

Add Bitcoin Cash or Monero donation address

Hello again.

There's a new Bitcoin Cash address format. I think it would be better to add that instead of the same address to avoid confusion. New users might find it easier to have different address formats and software can warn them if they are using wrong address. Just another safety measure. You can find more about the format here: https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/7haibv/psa_tell_your_friends_upcoming_address_format_jan
