Re: [Gimp-web] Add Bitcoin Cash or Monero donation address


Since the same public and private key is used for Bitcoin cash, it would be
sufficient to update the website description to state that both Bitcoin and
Bitcoin Cash are accepted at the current address. There is no need for an
additional wallet until you want to spend the Bitcoin Cash at the address.

On another note, I would suggest making sure that the private key for the
address is secure, because the Bitcoin donations on it are worth over
$350,000 now, and the Bitcoin Cash over $40,000.

Best regards

The only cryptocurrency you can donate to Gimp devs is Bitcoin.
​Bitcoin is useless for donations in this state because of huge fees.
You can check out this fee chart comparing Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and
Monero fees in the last 3 months:

The average fee for BTC is over $25 at this moment. How much someone would
have to want to donate to justify that fee?

It would be cool if you provided official Bitcoin Cash and/or Monero
