Monero Non-Profit of the Week

Open Privacy Logo

The Open Privacy Research Society (Open Privacy for short) is a non-profit Canadian group based in Vancouver, British Columbia. They believe that moral systems enable consent. The society exists to invent, create, build, test, publish, deploy, promote, and to encourage the development of such systems.

Check back next week for another merchant that accepts Monero for their goods and services.

Volunteer Opportunities

If you want to get involved in making Monero better, but aren’t sure how, check out the volunteer opportunities below.

If you know of any merchants or exchanges that are still using a long form payment ID, please let the community know so we can contact them and ask them to integrated addresses or subaddresses. Feel free to leave them in the comments of this Reddit thread.

Test I2P-Zero

Download I2P Zero for your machine, follow the direction in the README, and report any issues to the Issue tracker on GitHub, or IRC channel #i2p-zero.

Test Monero Core Software

Anyone with moderate technical ability is encouraged to try to build and run Monero nightlies. Do not trust it with your Monero, but feel free to open an Issue on Github as problems arise. Instructions to build on your OS of choice can be found on GitHub.

If you enjoy this publication and want to support it, we encourage you to donate to the Monero General Fund, using the following address:
