WAIT, YOU ONLY ACCEPT BITCOIN DONATIONS?
Correct. I decided to accept bitcoin only in protest to the Federal Reserve’s incredibly poor fiscal policies that are destroying the value of the dollar. By only accepting a viable, competing currency, I hope to bring more attention to the Fed’s policies and discuss ways we can remedy the situation they have put us in. I fully understand that I may miss out on some campaign funding, but I believe this issue is bigger than just my campaign. I apologize for any inconvenience and hope you will try bitcoin out.
HOW DOES BITCOIN WORK?
I thought about the best way to explain how bitcoin works, but then I realized that it isn’t important to most people. I can try and summarize the technical aspect of it, but I think that detracts from the purpose of it. Bitcoin is a currency and should be used as such. No one thinks about what a dollar is or even what gold or silver are, they just know that those things have value and they can be used in voluntary transactions. Bitcoin is no different.
But if you are really interested, here are a few links that explain how bitcoin works:
I’M NEW TO BITCOIN, HOW DO I START?
There are plenty of websites out there that explain how to start using bitcoin, but I would recommend Coinbase to most people at first.
