Donate Bitcoin for Biohack.me's new server
As you may have noticed, there is now a Bitcoin wallet for Biohack.me.
Any funds collected into this particular wallet will be used for the purposes of provisioning a new server for the next incarnation of Biohack.me (and paying for it thereafter). Our target is to find a host for around 10-20 USD / month, so I'd like to collect 40-60 USD worth of Bitcoins (~0.15 BTC at current rates) before setting anything up to have a healthy buffer.
You can check the balance of the Bitcoin wallet here: http://ledger.biohack.me This site runs a small program that fetches the current balance of the wallet every 3 (+/-) minutes. The source for this application is available here, for those that are interested: http://github.com/biohack-me/coinbase-ledger
This is a bit of an experiment to see how using Bitcoin can make the community someone self-sustainable. I'd like this to also be as transparent as possible concerning gathering and allocating any funds donated by the community. When/if there are any donations to the wallet I'll add a log of (anonymized) incoming and outgoing transactions to the "ledger" site.
(There are currently no plans to collect donations through any other channel, neither government currency nor "altcoin".)
