Donations & Funding
Patriot Democracy is a decentralised community-driven project that respects privacy and anonymity. The safety and security of the project and Patriots, supporters that participate are always the first consideration and priority.
When we researched ways of funding Patriot Democracy, these requirements made traditional funding and donations systems not feasible and required a completely different approach.
When looking at different approaches, we found the Monero open-source cryptocurrency project faced these same problems, and to solve them they created the "Community Crowdfunding System" (CCS).
Patriot Democracy found that the Community Crowdfunding System model Monero created meets all our requirements, without compromising our ideals, and we will be basing our funding system on the Monero CCS model.
Community Crowdfunding System
A Community Crowdfunding System allows for the community to make proposals and have those proposals funded by the community. Funds can be donated directly to a proposed idea, with the Patriot Democracy Core team acting as escrow and arbitrating the Community Crowdfunding System (CCS).
Our current focus is making the current infrastructure sustainable through the general fund. Over time we hope to develop and grow the system similar to that of the Monero Community Crowdfunding System and expand to the system to allow for more diverse community project funding.
Besides specific project proposals, the General Fund (GF) is for funding the Patriot Democracy organisation and ensuring the long term sustainability of Patriot Democracy.
Stewardship of the General Fund is managed by the core team, and funds are distributed as required for the advancement of Patriot Democracy.
Currently, all funds donated to the general fund go towards funding servers and technology infrastructure.

For privacy and security reasons we do not publicly promote Bitcoin donation addresses, and prefer donations using Monero. However, we do recognise the popularity of Bitcoin.
If you want to donate using Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency we recommended using a cryptocurrency exchange swap service to convert existing Bitcoin into Monero and send it directly to the Patriot Democracy Monero address.
The Monero website provides a list of supported merchants, exchanges and providers .
We recommended looking for a privacy-focused swap service that does not require any personal information or registration.
If hesitant to swap directly to the Patriot Democracy Monero address, you can also create a Monero wallet and first swap to a Monero wallet you control, and then use that wallet to send the funds to Patriot Democracy.
