Concerning the advert fund
In 2010-2011, the earlier prime mod of /r/Bitcoin collected BTC donations with a imprecise concept that this BTC could be used to advertise /r/Bitcoin and/or Bitcoin itself utilizing AdSense advertisements or one thing like that. About 22.5 BTC was collected, on the time value 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 straight away… just a few weeks later they ran away with everybody’s BTC.)
Previously, a number of the different mods used elements of the advert fund to advertise /r/Bitcoin by sponsoring some eSports tournaments and by shopping for some Reddit advertisements. However I used to be personally by no means very concerned with the entire advert fund concept, and there have not been many different individuals concerned with spearheading ad-fund initiatives, so the remaining ~12 BTC has been sitting round accumulating mud for the previous a number of years. I made a decision this 12 months 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.
