The Pirate Times botcoin q-code on a background of physical bitcoins

The Pirate Times is now Accepting Bitcoin Donations

Up until now the only way you have been able to contribute monetarily to the work of the Pirate Times is to use Flattr. We are thankful to those who have helped us to defray our basic running costs from our Flattr income.

This year we have set goals that are ambitious and we want to be in the position to help pay for research costs as well as travel and accommodation for conferences and events. In the past, to report on events at a set geographical location, we have relied on our team members paying their own way or asking team members who are participating in an official capacity to make a report. The latter situation is the least preferable as it is very hard for someone deeply involved in an event or conference to deliver an objective view of the proceedings.

Thus we are aiming to give you even more articles and content with your help. If you have a few satoshi going spare you can send them to this address:

We will put all bitcoins received to good use and be transparent about what happens with our funds. We will also explore other means of fund raising in the near future.

About Andrew Reitemeyer

I joined the Pirate Party of Lower Saxony in Germany in April 2012, once I found out that non citizens were welcome to join and become active members of the Party. I joined the Pirate Times soon after it was started as a proof reader and am now an editor and author. Since then I have returned to my native New Zealand and joined the Pirate Party of New Zealand. Politically I come from the libertarian left and have, up to now, not regarded any political party as having a solution for the democratic deficit that envelops the world. With the advent of the Pirate Party, which truly embraces grass roots democracy, I have found a political home. The Pirate Times is a way I can contribute to furthering the Pirate Movement around the world. Skype: frithogar
