[SOLVED] Bitcoin donation enquiry...

Post by Mr_Robot » Tue Jul 24, 2018 3:50 am

Hi guys,

I'm wonder why LM did not provide an option to show Donor name for bitcoin donation? Just like my friends, they don't prefer anonymous for any donation...

So, could LM can add an option for bitcoin donation? They love Linux Mint as much as me. Thanks.

Thanks for considering to support the developers.

Indeed. There is no name or other identity information associated with Bitcoin addresses, that's how Bitcoin works. Bitcoin only exposes transaction information; sender and receiver address (both of which many wallets will automatically change after each transaction), date and amount.

If you don't want anonymous donation I'd suggest using PayPal instead. Donations to Linux Mint are not tax deductible.
