In regards to the advert fund
In 2010-2011, the earlier prime mod of /r/Bitcoin collected BTC donations with a obscure concept that this BTC can be used to advertise /r/Bitcoin and/or Bitcoin itself utilizing AdSense adverts or one thing like that. About 22.5 BTC was collected, on the time price lower than $300. When he resigned and made me prime mod, he additionally gave me the MyBitcoin account containing the advert fund. (I fortunately moved the BTC out of MyBitcoin immediately… a couple of weeks later they ran away with everybody’s BTC.)
Previously, among the different mods used elements of the advert fund to advertise /r/Bitcoin by sponsoring some eSports tournaments and by shopping for some Reddit adverts. However I used to be personally by no means very focused on the entire advert fund concept, and there have not been many different individuals focused on spearheading ad-fund tasks, so the remaining ~12 BTC has been sitting round gathering mud for the previous a number of years. I made a decision this yr to lastly empty the advert fund, and this donation sponsorship/matching occasion appeared like a great way to make use of the BTC for one thing worthwhile whereas additionally sustaining the spirit of the advert fund.
