  • Downtime due to DDoS attacks still. I'm waiting on different providers to give me what I need to deal with it long-term.

Coinbase can do anything they like, including just shutting down your account the instant they think anything whatsoever you did is fishy in even the tiniest way.

And in case I haven't made my opinion clear:

IGNORE THIS GUY. DO NOT USE EXCHANGES FOR ANYTHING EVEN REMOTELY RELATED TO KF.

(Except for the part about never reusing addresses, that part is totally right.)
Well, that's ideas #2 and #3 shot down, lol.

run ads on a peer-to-peer basis? Each week, auction off four slots in the rotation. Ads run for a month. Highest bidder gets them.
#1: nobody will want to advertise anything here unless it's either malware or an outright scam that's blacklisted everywhere else, leaving this as the only place they can buy adspace. Absolutely no legit companies would even come close to this place because of the potential backlash.

Yes. In practice, they will ask chainalysis if you did anything dodgy. If KF wouldn't reuse addresses, they would have nothing to blacklist you for.

Obviously; the current system isn't set up for it.
(Except for the part about never reusing addresses, that part is totally right.)
To make my point clear: KF should stop reusing addresses. If they did, it would be safe to use exchanges directly.

Cryptocurrency casinos, basically. Torrent sites can find advertisers, so it's not 100% impossible. But very low CPM, like $0.5.

Bro, I cycle my addresses. I do not make enough money from straight donations to develop a fucking custom wallet API for this fucking site. Do you get it? Your suggestions are impractical. The people donating are crypto hodlers going long who have their own wallets.

No one using this site makes routine crypto donations! It's like $20 every so often. That's it. I get 99% of money for the site through fiat donations, not crypto (not factoring in BAT). I'm not spending time on this.

It's already developed, you just need to throw it up somewhere.

I'm suggesting that if you fixed it so people could donate directly from the exchanges, you would be able to significantly widen your crypto-donating audience from the hardcore hodlers, to normal people who don't know anything about crypto..

For reference: I can buy bitcoins in less than 5 minutes without registering an account, having any technological skills, or setting up a wallet. If the site uses proper address management, I can thus donate to it in less than 5 minutes. If I have to set up a wallet, the barrier to entry is significantly raised, making it substantially less likely it would happen in an impulse decision.

I've had two people complain Coinbase in several years.

Your priorities when making suggestions are baffling. You are disconnected from the realities of this site and normal people in general.

The issue is most users are American, Americans must kyc to get crypto, and most users don't want to kyc for this site just to spend money on a community they casually use and which fucking burns money.

I'm not wasting dev time that broadens the site as a target for hacking but which no one will ever use.

I apologise profusely
Disgusting.

I apologise profusely if this has been asked before, but are PaySafe cards also acceptable? Or better yet, simply transferring the money via a bank account?
Bank Transfer / Zelle / Venmo / Other Options
Contact me if you'd really like to donate but need something else.
Literally in the first post in this thread.

Send Null a PM or email and he'll give you the necessary details.

If you use monero you can also use a swap website to buy it in less than 5 minutes without registering an account (with convenient payment methods like paypal, visa, other crypto, etc.) and have it sent directly to null's XMR address. Nobody will ever know a donation to a website that you can say "nigger" on took place, and you can do that without trying to go through elaborate gymnastics of trying to make a surveillance coin like bitcoin more private

I will send null some monero in a sec and nobody will ever know I contributed to the noble cause of being able to say "nigger" online

Monero is honestly miles ahead of Bitcoin in terms of on-chain privacy out of the box. Converting between the two can be reasonably safely too which is nice. Can hodl BTC and spend/replace as XMR.

People could also exploit the wacky ETH fees atm and GPU mine a little bit too if so inclined. Mined coins without any KYC are pretty much peak anonymity.

Very good, but the site can still recognize and blacklist the address 438fUMciiahbYemDyww6afT1atgqK3tSTX25SEmYknpmenTR6wvXDMeco1ThX2E8gBQgm9eKd1KAtEQvKzNMFrmjJJpiino. No amount of on-chain encryption will save you from that.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I want to make an XMR donation to get True and Honest status. What do I need to do to verify that it was me that sent the XMR? I assume I need to put my KF username in the transaction description, but I'm not sure. I'm a bit of a boomer when it comes to this kind of stuff, so any help would be appreciated.

PM me after sending with the tx id.

Fortunately just receiving your funds to a subaddress on your XMR wallet first would solve this though, and is preferable anyway from a privacy perspective.

The way in the quoted post does idd associate their fiat payment method to interacting with the site’s displayed XMR address (unless ofc a new one is generated for each tx).

Yes, but this requires users to set up a Monero wallet. That is a significant barrier. With address generation, there would be no need to 'learn crypto'

What's the rundown on exchanges shutting down accounts sending Jersh internet funny money? Is it just Coinbase or Binance, too?
