Monero (XMR)

XMR QR Code

Monero is an open-source, privacy-protecting cryptocurrency that was launched in 2014. Because transaction details are private by default, Monero cannot be easily traced, unlike traditional cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Zcash is the only major alternative with privacy-enhancing features, but these are optional, not widely used, and therefore not well supported in practice.

IOTA (MIOTA)

MIOTA QR Code

IOTA is an open-source cryptocurrency designed for the Internet of Things (IoT). Private transactions, as with Monero, are not supported at present. We are in the early stages of an evaluation to determine if the technology is suitable for decentralized sharing and licensing of digital assets such as photos and videos.

Donation Rewards

Current sponsorship tiers and one-time donation rewards can be found on [GitHub Sponsors]((https://link.photoprism.app/sponsor). If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Benefits of Donating Cryptocurrency

Directly donating a portion of your cryptocurrency assets helps avoid the capital gains tax that would be incurred if you sold the assets and donated the proceeds. This can increase the effective amount by up to 25%.

In addition, every transaction helps evaluate the underlying technologies so that they can eventually be used to implement decentralized sharing and payment features.

Sustainability and Environmental Protection

Sustainability has been a core value for us from the beginning. That's why we ensure our office and hosting infrastructure is powered by 100% climate-neutral, renewable energy.

More information can be found on the website of Polarstern Energie, the electricity provider for our Berlin office, as well as in the statements of our infrastructure partners Hetzner Online and DigitalOcean.

We do not engage in crypto mining at this time and will fully assess the environmental impact before permanently adopting any distributed ledger technologies.
