Ever wanted to donate to ComicBT using a fast, secure and safe method where 100% of donations go straight to us and we control 100% of our funds?
Now, using PayPal Bitcoin, you can!
What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a decentralized virtual currency, meaning neither does it exist in the physical world, nor does it have a central bank such as the Federal Reserve or the Bank of England. There are also a finite number of bitcoins in the world, with a limit of 21 million bitcoins set to be reached by 2140.
In laymans terms, its a currency (money) that is used online to buy goods and services, its not as slick as say loading your paypal or steam account with cash, but you can think about it in the same way. Its like loading a creditcard with foreign currency, then using that credit card to buy things online like you would with any other currency, but its fiddlier to do!
Why should I donate using Bitcoin?
1. ComicBT will receive 100% of your donation (no fee)!
2. Bitcoin is more sustainable for ComicBT!
3. Bitcoin is more anonymous for you!
4. By donating through Bitcoin, you are directly funding the future of ComicBT (more on this later).
How can I donate using Bitcoin?
1. The first step is to set up a 'wallet', to store your bitcoins.
- ComicBT recommends www.blockchain.info
2. Purchase Bitcoins with your native currency

3. Head to the donate page
- From your wallet, send $5, $10, $15 or $20 worth of Bitcoin to the unique address generated for you.
1. Will I still receive the quoted perks for my donation?
- Yes! The bitcoin address generated is unique to you (refresh the page and see for yourself). Using some clever code, we are able to process the donation exactly as if you had donated using PayPal.
2. I'm new to this and I sent more than I can afford to donate. Will you refund me?
- Absolutely. We will refund you the difference between what you donated and what you actually wanted to donate.
3. I'm still not sure about this, where can I get some more help?
- www.bitcoin.org (Recommended)
