Donate to the Tor Project in 9 Different Cryptocurrencies

The Tor Project, a well-known nonprofit, is now accepting cryptocurrency donations. Tor’s donations page has been listing cryptocurrency addresses since March 18. Cryptocurrencies are considered a more private way to donate money than traditional currencies.

The Tor Project is a US non-profit organization advancing human rights and freedoms by creating and deploying free and open source anonymity and privacy technologies, supporting their unrestricted availability and use, and furthering their scientific and popular understanding.

The currencies Tor supports are Augur (REP), Bitcoin (XBT), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dash (DASH), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR), Stellar Lumen (XLM), and Zcash (ZEC).

Donors can choose from currencies like Bitcoin and Ether which are not entirely anonymous and privacy-centric cryptocurrencies such as Monero and Zcash which have come a long way to create more anonymous currencies. Donors looking to financially support the Tor project should remember that donations in BTC and ETH can easily be tracked on the blockchain.

Prior to the announcement, Tor company had been accepting Bitcoin for a number of years. In March, besides accepting new cryptocurrencies, the company switched from BitPay to using Kraken. Now donors can send coins to Tor using direct wallet addresses.

“We decided to accept cryptocurrency because more and more donors requested that option. The Tor Project and the cryptocurrency communities both value privacy, so it makes sense,” Tor’s fundraising director Sarah Stevenson told CoinDesk. She also added Tor donors “requested direct wallet addresses.”

Tor’s donations page encourages donors to “stand up for the universal human rights to privacy and freedom and help keep Tor robust and secure.”

Donors can contact the Tor project if they would prefer to donate in a cryptocurrency not listed there and the team would offer a solution.
