Title: How To Donate (Getting Started With Bitcoin)
Post by: DarthArgus on 11-07-16, 02:46:40
In an effort to keep ourselves and our players anonymous, we are attempting to only accept donations in Bitcoin. This is primarily because of the legal entanglements we could encounter otherwise.

You can easily convert funds from PayPal, credit cards, bank accounts, and other sources directly to bitcoin.

The fastest way we have found to buy Bitcoin with PayPal so far is to use SpicePay's bitcoin exchange (https://www.spicepay.com/bitcoin-exchange/).

We will put up a tutorial if necessary to help you get started if you need it, but if you'd like to try it yourself now, all you have to do is sign up, add your PayPal account, and purchase the amount of bitcoins equal to what you'd like to donate.

Once the coins are in your SpicePay account, you send them to our bitcoin address (click to see it's current balance): 19teYu6fPPr4nD4d8B6h8TMCN9ZPZtjvcV (https://blockchain.info/address/19teYu6fPPr4nD4d8B6h8TMCN9ZPZtjvcV)

Warning: Please be careful with your money. When sending money to an exchange or seller you are trusting that the operator will not abscond with your funds and that the operator maintains secure systems that protect against theft -- internal or external. It is recommended that you obtain the real-world identity of the operator and ensure that sufficient recourse is available. Because Bitcoin services are not highly regulated a service can continue operating even when it is widely believed that it is insecure or dishonest and webpages recommending them (including these) may not be regularly updated. Exchanging or storing significant amounts of funds with third-parties is not recommended.
