A couple more folks have stepped up and added to our matching drive. Today we got an additional $2,500 in matching funds. Right now, at midnight west coast time, we have $17,002 in matching funds and have used about $7,000. We’re hoping maybe to get another couple thousand in backing over the next few days, but it will be a stretch.
But, a longer stretch is to keep building momentum with next Friday as our end date.
Most bitcoin donations to Erowid come in very small amounts and not super often. But, ever September, I need to have a daily tracking of incoming bitcoin donations to keep our daily September Drive numbers accurate.
Otherwise, there’s no reason to do day-to-day tracking of bitcoin donations. But, each year it seems each system I use to do server-side pull and parse of bitcoin donations into our contribution tracker change format or meaning. And again this year.
After some very generous folks contributed 45 bitcoin donations yesterday, it became clear that I needed to stop entering them manually into our contribution list and had to update the importer. So, this year, I’m using the JSON output from :
It took me a few hours of figuring out the differences between the different formats I’d been reading.
So, that makes 65 bitcoin donations so far in September. Hurray!
