I’ve been using LiberaPay. On their blog, the K-9Mail dev mentioned FundOSS.

Are there any others? Any that should be avoided?

Liberapay. Almost exclusively.

Right now whatever system the maintainer prefers. I currently donate monthly to a GitHub project I really care about using the sponsor feature.

I only use Liberapay as that’s the only one that’s clearly non-profit. If the project doesn’t use it, I’ll donate using direct payment methods, and just set a reminder in one year to renew. Manual Liberapaying so to speak.

I would argue comradery is as good as liberapay if not better

Why preferably Monero? My own opinion of crypto in general is quite negative (environmental costs, volatility, speculation, impracticality, etc. etc.), is there anything that sets Monero apart?

Because of its privacy features. It’s not a completely transparent ledger like Bitcoin and does a lot of obfuscation.

For example, if you have someone’s public address only, you:

  • don’t know how much Monero that address has.
  • can’t see all of their transactions and details about those.

check this site: https://www.exploremonero.com/

If someone gives you the view key for a certain transaction you can see its details like with any other crypto (useful for proving you paid for something).

I don’t like that it’s proof-of-work either but its impact is not big enough to be an environmental disaster like Bitcoin and Ethereum at the moment. It also doesn’t encourage the miner behavior of big PoW cryptos because the developers made it ASIC resistant. That makes it consume less power as far as I can tell.

I personally haven’t used crypto for speculation, just for payments or storing my money in stablecoins (developing country things).

I don’t support the use case of crypto as a wild west stock market. And I do agree that it’s quite impractical to use even for tech savvy people which isn’t a good thing.

I really like the idea of comradery. I hope they get the attention they truly deserve

I use LiberaPay and OpenCollective more or less interchangeably, depending on which one the project mentions on their own site.

Monero if they accept it, if not BTC I usually ask for Monero first if they list some crypto but not XMR

I created a small website that lists projects that take Monero donations - I haven’t updated it in a bit since it never took off, but you might be interested: https://xmr-donate.web.app/

Intersting project indeed. Might be nice to have a complete list somewhere so you can simply scroll through it, organized by categories.

I’ve opened an issue on LibreTube a Piped YouTube client for Android (in beta) for them to accept XMR, they embrasse the idea and added XMR donations in the minute… litteraly, you might want to add them when you have time to do so.

Also, having a QR on your website is not ideal IMO, what if you or someone else hijack the Monero adress and steal the donations ? I don’t want to check everytime, you should think about a better solution, maybe simply add the URL to their XMR donation link page/anchor ^^

Nice project will keep an eye on it ;)

why tezos specifically? any features that makes it better than the well-known privacy cryptos (monero, zcash)?

I have no idea about monero and zcash. I like the Tezos Defi ecosystem and its governance.

With a low transfer fee

there needs to be low fee cryptocurrency options for every project.
wasting money on fees is insanity!
