[tor-talk] why the torproject should get another bitcoin partner

If you ever tried to donate to the torproject via torbrowser and bitcoins you probably

know that it does not work very well due to bitpay using Cloudflare. Cloudflare changes
the original HTTP POST to a HTTP GET -> 404 Error.

from BitPay Support Center (Apr 25, 9:33 AM):


To answer your question:

"would you be willing to disable CAPTCHAs for Tor users to make donations work out of the box? "

This was my first request to BitPay management. The answer was no. I then asked if we could offer a payment button that worked through Cloudflare and the answer was "not at this time".

I am very sorry to bring you this news. This issue is also very important to me personally. I think people should be able to donate bitcoin to the Tor Project from the Tor Browser without jumping through hoops, but this is the state of things at the moment.

thanks for checking in.
