Litecoin and Blocknet integration would be nice.
Blocknet integrates the rest.

You should offer Cryto for donations, too!

The electrum-litecoin variant as well as the litecoin "core" binaries from the Litecoin site should work fine.

In terms of crypto for donations, IIRC Ikey tried setting up Coinbase and it was giving him some pains, and given exchanges that did make it relatively easy to exchange for fiat currency, like BTC-e, keep getting put down in various cases of whack-a-mole, along with the huge fluctuations on current value of multiple cryptocurrencies, whether it's BTC, LTC, PPC, ETC, NMC, etc. I just don't anticipate us supporting it. Also then comes down to the inconvenience of moving coins from cold storage for exchanging (because nobody should ever just keep all their coins in an exchange, or Coinbase IMO), waiting for confirmations (some exchanges requiring 5+ confirmations, which can be a bit time consuming on some alt-coins), it just adds an additional layer of complexity.

Whereas with Patreon and PayPal, once your accounts are validated, it's typically just a matter of: Someone sends money, you get it, you withdraw it.

I would second an option to donate in crypto. setting up a bitpay account shouldn't be difficult and it converts directly to fiat if you want to.

With the current BTC prices, a lot of people are having some free cash laying around so it might be worth considering even if it is just btc.

I recommend a Trezor hardware wallet. It's the best fit between security and availability, offline and accessible at the same time.

Out of subject maybe, but let's say that mining is now obsolete and generally about Bitcoin there are 4 phases :

- Confidential
- Happy fews knowing about it
- Articles in social medias
- Whole spreading in the social network, where little miners and investors pay for the huge possessors

When you reach the 2 last phases : it's already too late you'll never get what you paid for .

Cryptos are just a Ponzi joke making money out of nothing . There are mining distros available with all the necessary stuff, Solus shall stay out of it IMO .
