A little context: I send 10% of my earnings (tithing) to the church. Besides tithes, he sends money to various projects.
I think they could be considered donations. This church is a non-profit organization.
I recently started making profits from Bitcoin (weekly, I get paid in Bitcoin for the work I do). It is not a small amount. Now, obviously the next thought that came to my mind is: How do I send tithes now?
Since this non-profit accepts other currencies (eg EUR, USD, etc.), I think it would be a good reason to accept Bitcoin as well. At the moment it is not happening and I have not spoken to them about it.
I am a beginner in understanding Bitcoin, but I know the basics. Most of them are non-technical people and I think it will be difficult for them to understand how this works. I must admit I had a lot of questions that I had to find answers to as well.
What reasons should I give to support my plan: send bitcoins to this nonprofit?
Some things I’m thinking of:
- There are quite a few stores that accept bitcoins in our country.
- Not controlled by the state or any organization (personally I find this pretty huge, for obvious reasons)
- Some other people send to this non-profit even things that aren’t money (for example, they work with bees and get a lot of honey, and they can choose to send 10% to church). I think this is something that will help them realize that Bitcoin is valuable too.
- Since they accept other currencies, why not accept bitcoins as well?
- Regarding the previous process: If I convert my bitcoins to other currencies (such as the euro), since the value of Bitcoin is still changing rapidly, it will not be stable for both parts
Is this good enough to start with? What other points should I make? Given the context, how can I explain it in simple words how would that help?
As per my understanding, they would simply have to create a wallet and share the address with the world.
