I would stay clear from such a project. There is no person. Just a
"team". And in the second email "the team" talks as I. Either this is

clear how they are going to make money out of gullible.

Sadly there is nothing else I can do to convince you otherwise. Currently where I (the creator of this project and who the domain is registered to) live it would cost me ~$500 to create a tax-exempt nonprofit. Also take into consideration that I would be looking at anywhere from 1 month to a year for the paperwork to actually be processed. As I previously mentioned the initial goal of this was to see if anyone would even use it, otherwise it would be pointless to invest what I consider a large amount of money into something that wasn't going to go anywhere. I would rather take that money and funnel it to an existing project.

As far as the whole I vs team thing, I'm not sure why that really matters but just to be a sport and play along with you there is an actual team. In that team though there is me, the creator who wrote the code for the site, registered the domain name, registered the Stripe account and who handles the e-mail. So if in previous messages the tone flipped between "team" and "I" it was in my opinion valid as outside of design work, I am currently the one who handles everything.

One of the main reasons you cannot pay with Bitcoin yet is that you, as far as I know, cannot request a refund on your Bitcoin transaction. However, I believe that almost every credit card company out there will refund you for transactions that are deemed fraudulent or for transactions where the seller/vendor did not live up to their end of the deal. If the whole goal of this was to scam people out of money it probably would have made more sense to accept only Bitcoin or some other type of cryptocurrency.

I realize it's probably hard to believe in the current world we live in, but there are some of us out there that are not interested in making it big but instead are trying to help while fulfilling an urge to build something. Everything that is on the website is 100% accurate as far as how the money we receive is used. It's your right to either believe it or not but it would be nice if before passing judgement you used the service to see if your accusations were accurate.
