The Foundation has been accepting BitCoin donations. Unfortunately, BitCoin is very wasteful in terms of electricity, and is therefore a dirty cryptocurrency.
I recommend that the Foundation immediately cease accepting BitCoin, and require donors who wish to donate in cryptocurrency to convert to FoldingCoin instead. Please see: FoldingCoin (FLDC) http://foldingcoin.net/ whitepaper: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1y4MV9AwGLTRFqD-kjC4uN0AX59kHOpO1OWsabnxxUIs This conversion will place the Foundation at the forefront of cryptocurrency technology, and stop it from contributing to extremely dirty waste. As other cryptocurrencies based on proofs of useful work instead of useless work emerge, the Foundation should consider those. FoldingCoin is based on proofs of useful prediction of protein folding, which is useful for computer-aided antibody design, and used in turn for cancer therapies and many other applied and research medical fields. I also invite anyone in the community interested in co-authoring my forthcoming derivative whitepaper on proofs of useful intelligibility remediation work to contact me off-list, please. I am also willing to help with proofs of useful encyclopedia article improvement, but I am not certain if ORES is yet robust enough to support such proof in a secure fashion.
