How To Donate (Bitcoin / PayPal)

Project finances thread is here


Bitcoin Donations

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.
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.

You can transfer bitcoins to this address and see the balance:

Paypal Donations

Neither of us is interested in putting up our names behind anything. Therefore, we prefer the use of bitcoin and encourage the use of it.

If you wish to donate via PayPal, read this please:
  • All donations will be used for monthly project expenses.  Under no circumstances will any funds be used for expenses unrelated to the operation of this effort. We all have jobs and don't need your money, but we also can't shoulder these costs by ourselves and appreciate your help doing so.
  • All PayPal donations will be transacted regularly and in bulk to our bitcoin wallet in order to fund project costs. Unfortunately, this process is not free and a small percentage of money will be used to cover transaction related fees charged by Paypal and other involved parties.
  • Once our bitcoin wallet exceeds more than $1200 after paid expenses, and projected expenditures do not warrant the extra funds on hand, we will consider to donate a portion of funds that exceed $1200 to Star Wars related charities such as Force for Change. We will let you know if/when a threshold of $1000 is reached and in turn will ask you to hold off with donating. Again, we have no interest of hoarding massive amounts of money beyond what is necessary to keep the lights on.
If you prefer full transparency and anonymity, you can use bitcoin which has a public transaction log.

You can donate via PayPal here:

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.
