Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

How is the Bitcoin foundation funded ?

How does the Bitcoin foundation raise money to exist ?
submitted by CryptoDanO to CryptoCurrencies [link] [comments]

I am a lifetime member of the Bitcoin foundation.

To the actual board of director of the Bitcoin foundation that read this message, if you are not going to do anything with the foundation, please relinquish the rights so we can run it the proper way.
To other members of the Foundation, please sent me an email to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) so we can figure out how to create a new board of director correctly and continue the advocacy for the small bitcoiners like ourselves.
To anyone reading, but hate the foundation, please don't down-vote the post. We need to do something constructive with it and this would be the 4th iteration of the organization.
Regards,
Theo Chino,

I'm Gavin Andresen, Chief Scientist at the Bitcoin Foundation. Ask me anything!

So what do you want to know?
I'm 47 years old and live and work in Amherst, Massachusetts with my wife, two kids and assorted pets.
I was born in Melbourne, Australia as "Gavin Bell" but moved to the US when I was five years old. I grew up in Seattle Washington, Anchorage Alaska and the Santa Ynez Valley, California.
After graduating from Princeton University (Computer Science), I worked at Silicon Graphics Computer Systems for eight years, creating 3D graphics software (Open Inventor and VRML).
My wife and I moved to Madison, Wisconsin after she got her PhD from Stanford. There I wrote a book and co-founded a startup that failed. We moved to Amherst in 1998, where I worked on an Internet Walkie-Talkie), online games for blind and sighted people, tools for Prosper lenders, a web site content management system for Gravity Switch, and part of the back-end for a search engine for computer science research literature.
Phew. That long list makes me feel old.
I first heard about Bitcoin in a May, 2010 InfoWorld article, and started working on Bitcoin-related projects soon after. I'm proud of my contributions:
You can read about what I've been working on recently at the Foundation blog.
I try not to let Bitcoin completely take over my life; I spend about eleven evenings a year as an elected member of Amherst Town Meeting. And I still have some time to ride my bicycle or unicycle, use my skeptical skills to debunk the crazy things friends post on Facebook, and read a little science fiction.
You can get an idea of topics I find interesting and how I think at my blog.
So: AMA!
Thanks everybody for all the kind words! I'm going to stop now, but I'll check in tomorrow and if there are burning questions that get eleven or more points that I haven't already answered I'll try to jump in and answer them.

Brock Pierce, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bitcoin Foundation, is a Clinton Global Initiative member who has been accused by 3 child actors of running an underage sex ring in Hollywood. Brock Pierce also founded Tether. Articles about this are shadowbanned across Reddit.

Brock Pierce is a controversial figure who has received surprisingly little attention despite connections to the Clinton Foundation, digital currency Bitcoin and involvement in a notorious scandal involving a child abuse ring. Pierce’s involvement with a child abuse ring, Digital Entertainment Network and The Clinton Global initiative were first highlighted in the documentary An Open Secret, Directed by Amy Berg.
As detailed in Berg’s film, Brock was a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, former child actor who appeared in films such as the 1992 classic Mighty Ducks and Disney’s “First Kid,” and Chairman of the Board at the Bitcoin Foundation. Pierce also co-founded the Digital Entertainment Network (DEN), a forerunner of video sharing site Youtube. In 2010, Pierce also was also a participant at the Mindshift Conference, which was hosted by now disgraced billionaire pedophile and child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
DEN was founded in 1996 amid the rapid growth of the dot-com bubble. It raised $72 million in investment before even opening in 1999, a massive amount of capital considering that, at least on the surface, DEN was not yet providing investors with anything in return. At the time news sources scoffed at the massive salaries top executives were paid when the company was not even creating revenue.
An SEC filing obtained by Hollywood periodical Radar Online reveals that DEN’s investors included a shocking number of big name personalities such as media executives Garth Ancier and David Geffen, former Yahoo CEO Terry Semel, film producers Gary Goddard and Bryan Singer, Wall Street czar Mitchell Blutt, A&M Records head Gilbert Friesen (now deceased), former Disney executive David Neuman, manager and label executive Gary Gersh, investor Jeffrey Sachs, former Congressman Michael Huffington, actors Ben and Fred Savage, and tech companies such as Microsoft and Dell. The lack of apparent revenue raises questions about what investors in DEN were expecting in return.
In 2000, DEN suffered an absolute disaster amid claims by employees and several Hollywood child actors such as Michael Egan III that Pierce and his partners, Chad Shackley and Marc Collins-Rector ran a child abuse ring with a number of other Hollywood directors and A-list actors, many of whom were financially tied to DEN.
As covered in the Amy Berg film An Open Secret, Egan alleged that between the ages of 15 to 17, he would be given alcohol, cocaine and other drugs and was raped repeatedly along with other young boys who were present. The abuse allegedly occurred at the house shared by Collins-Rector, Shackley and Pierce as well as on trips to Hawaii. On at least one occasion, Collins-Rector threatened Egan with a gun to force him into compliance. Egan filed a civil suit after his reports to the LAPD and FBI fell on deaf ears. Individuals named in the suit included Pierce, Collins-Rector, Shackley, as well as Bryan Singer, Garth Ancier, Gary Goddard and David Neuman.
Mr. Egan’s allegations mirror other similar claims made by actors such as Corey Feldman and Elijah Wood that child sex abuse is rampant in Hollywood. Pierce and his co-accused resigned from DEN and fled hurriedly to Spain to escape the FBI. Collins Rector was apparently primarily concerned that investor David Geffen wished to kill him over the scandal. Depositions taken from Pierce revealed that Geffen had purportedly been paying an employee to spy on DEN, and that he had been fed information and stolen faxes.
Ultimately, Collins-Rector was the only individual charged with sex offenses in relation to the scandal. Brock Pierce was never able fully escape negative public opinion over the role he played however. When he became the Chairman of the Board at the Bitcoin Foundation, at least 10 members resigned in protest. Several resignation letters explicitly listed Pierce’s association with pedophilia and child pornography as the reason for their departure.
Pierce is one of several public figures dogged by allegations of child sex abuse with financial or social ties to the Clinton Foundation.

The truth about the Bitcoin Foundation

NOTE TO THE PRESS: The Bitcoin Foundation does not represent Bitcoin in any way. It has historically hired some Bitcoin developers, lobbyists and organized a conference.
Dear Members,
I was elected on a platform of transparency and decentralization of core development. Since the beginning, the Foundation has been sorely lacking any transparency of its actions. I can no longer in good conscience hide the truth on what I have witnessed in the Bitcoin Foundation since I was elected last month.
First of all, the Bitcoin Foundation is effectively bankrupt. As a result of 2 years of ridiculous spending and poorly thought out decisions, they almost ran out of money in November of last year. In extremis, but way too late, they decided to select a new executive director during that time. That new director decided that the only way to still get funds at that point, was to focus solely on funding core development, in the hope that people would see that as a good cause. But people were smart enough not to trust the Foundation anymore. Despite it’s intentions, they failed to collect the necessary funds to support this idea. With the election in February-March, it became clear that people did not want the Foundation meddling with core development. The truth is that the Foundation’s plan was to hire even more core devs + to start a Bitcoin Standards Body. No organization should have this much control over Bitcoin, and a disaster was avoided.
When I joined on my first Board meeting, Jim Harper and myself immediately put forward a vote to have the board meeting recorded. We followed Robert’s rules of orders, and everyone else basically shut us down and failed to follow procedures. There were “more urgent” things to discuss (as you will see later, the urgent pattern was an excuse to just continue on their course and shut us up). It was critical for us to vote on a plan that would save the Foundation. When I mentioned that such a critical vote is all the more reason to make sure the whole meeting gets recorded, I was ignored. The Bitcoin Foundation hates transparency. If they would have been transparent then everyone would know there is no money left. Something I think the members have a right to know, wouldn’t you think? Members have a right to know that the current board failed to tell them the truth, and that their way of running the organization resulted in it going bankrupt. But instead of taking responsibility, they want to find the next executive director, that will come up with another magic plan. Ironically, being transparent from the start might have prevented this whole thing to begin with.
Everyone has the right to know the truth:
Moving forward:
The lesson for all of us in Bitcoin is to never put any trust in a centralized org again that wanted to represent Bitcoin or the Core Development of Bitcoin.
Note: I totally expect the current Board members to try to place blame on me for whatever reason. They are very bad at taking personal responsibility. I have had several threats, but I'm releasing this anyway.

$100,000 bounty for software platform that can replace the Bitcoin Foundation

Hi Everyone,
My name is Olivier Janssens, early adopter and Bitcoin millionaire. The Bitcoin foundation has had its role in the last 2 years. Unfortunately, it is internally recreating the same archaic political system that fails to work for society. Bitcoin is the currency of the internet generation. It puts the power back into the hands of the people. You cannot expect its main representative organisation to be exactly the opposite: A non-transparent, political and secretive elite. We have been trying to push the BF for transparency and clear communication for years, without result. Meanwhile they started creating even more political structures inside, such as committees, which can only be accessed by knowing the right people. At the bitcoin 2014 conference, organised by this same organisation, I expected to see full internet participation + live streaming of their events. Especially of the BF member meeting, where they are supposed to get input from their members and disclose what they have been up to. Instead, the board decided that the event is not to be recorded or broadcasted. We have also no idea or say on how our money is spent. Half of their board gets elected by industry members (a group of about 100 companies), and recently lead to another extremely controversial election of Brock Pierce, which has a history of being connected to cases involving fraud and pedophilia. This needs to stop.
We as an internet community, don’t need public figures to decide what’s good for us. We need to stop politicking and start focussing on the projects directly. For example, we need a project to fund the core development of bitcoin, and put our money straight to that. We need a project to have lobbyists in Washington, to fight the anti-bitcoin lobbyists from Mastercard, and to prevent the government from destroying the currency. Basically, we don’t need another intermediary. We can do this ourselves. Therefor, I want to announce today that I am organising a contest and giving $100k USD in BTC, to the group that can come up with the best platform to make this happen. I am thinking of a system where prominent people can voice their opinion, where people can propose projects, and where the core devs can actively show their roadmap with detailed features + costs, and where we can vote on the features being implemented by sending bitcoins towards the feature of our choice. This will allow the core dev team to expand by being able to add/pay more devs for feature requests which are fully funded. Maybe we can even evolve to a system later where anyone can work on a feature, which, when programmed properly (approved by the core team), will receive the bounty. The same applies to lobbyists, we just send bitcoins towards the one that we consider the most competent for the job. This will allow Bitcoin to grow and expand at a rate it deserves, a rate that a political organisation such as the foundation can never accomplish.
Let’s liberate bitcoin.
Olivier
Rules of the contest:
UPDATE: Thanks for all your great feedback, ideas and private messages. I will provide an update here very soon.
UPDATE 2: Please email your submissions to [email protected] - You can also add me on twitter to follow updates more easily: @olivierjanss - The deadline of 17th of june still stands, but we do not require a finished product. The bounty will be given to the team with the best idea/skills to make it happen (partial payments until it is completed). If you just have an idea, but no programmers, you are still free to submit it. If it turns out to be the best one, we will help find a team for you. We understand many of you do not want to make your idea public at this point. If there are multiple really good submissions we will only put them up to vote after you give permission. Please note that if people submitted the same idea, we will go with the one who submitted it first.
UPDATE 3: The winner has been announced here: http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/29n8o0/100000_bounty_winner_announcement/

I've just been forcibly removed from the Bitcoin Foundation board

I would like to thank everyone for their support, especially those who voted for me. I ran on a platform to bring transparency. I think I kept my promise. During my tenure, board minutes and financials have been consistently released. I know I was a thorn in the eye of the Foundation since the beginning, and they waited for the right time to remove me. The truth is that the Foundation is pretty much dead. They will try to keep it going just for the name and ego, but they have no support left with the community. Their reputation is permanently destroyed, which became clear over the last year. From this point forward, I will also no longer be able to keep you informed on any of their actions.

Hi Reddit R/Bitcoin -- I'm Bruce Fenton -- running for election to the Bitcoin Foundation board seat. Any election questions - AMA.

Hi,
Since this election is in the individual category it is community driven, I wanted to give fellow Redditors the chance for any questions on the election.
Ask away!
Background: I'm a 22 year veteran financial professional and founder of an investment firm. I focus on emerging tech and emerging markets and travel quite a bit. I was an early web pioneer and see similarities to this tech. I've done about $5 billion in investments over the years and worked with some large clients.
I became active in Bitcoin in 2013 and work as an advisor and investor in the space. I am the organizer of Dubai Bitcoin Conference and have a couple other events coming up - the Satoshi Roundtable private retreat and the New England Bitcoin Conference which will be announced soon. I also am president and one of the founders of the Bitcoin Association, a decentralized group. I'm a member of the Global Bitcoin Alliance. I am a lifetime member of the Bitcoin Foundation.
I am an outspoken critic of excessive regulation and I have spoken at about 15 Bitcoin events this year.
I think the Bitcoin Foundation has some areas in need of improvement. It is unfortunate that some people have become upset with or left the foundation and this shows that there are areas which could be improved. Some of the challenges have been due to standard growing pains we should expect in an emerging space, some criticism is unwarranted, some is valid that we can learn from.
Overall I think that there is an important place in the ecosystem for the Bitcoin Foundation and that the organization can do more help to the space than if it didnt exist.
I'm running because I believe in the space and believe the Foundation can help the space and I'd like to help the Foundation be as good of an organization as it can be.
If you are interested in voting you need to be an individual member. Currently this costs $25 per year.
Edit: I should include my Facebook, which has about 85,000 people on it its http://www.facebook.com/brucefentonpage
Also you can check out http://brucefenton.com (under construction) or http://YouTube.com/brucefenton which both have lots of Bitcoin videos -- if you want my thoughts on regulation and Bitcoin watch some of the speeches from the last six months
