Internet Archive gets $1 million donation from bitcoin fund

The Pineapple Fund was announced earlier this month, pledging some $86 million in bitcoin to a range of causes. The fund’s benefactor, known only as “Pine”, told Bitcoin Magazine that they saw the promise of decentralized money in the early days of bitcoin, and that the “expectation-shattering returns of bitcoin over many years has led to an amount far more than I can spend”. They also note that the Pineapple Fund is bigger than the entire market cap of bitcoin when they got in, and is one of the richest 250 bitcoin addresses today. – Rachel England, Engadget http://ift.tt/2l82ldM

Brave’s browser makes it easy to donate money to YouTubers

Previous versions of the browser wouldn’t let you add specific channels to your donation list, but now you can make sure your money goes where you want it to go — even if that YouTuber has less than 10,000 video views. If you’ll recall, the platform updated its Partner Program requirements to add that condition in order to keep spammers and reposters from taking advantage of the money-making system. Unfortunately, the move also affects smaller creators who’ve yet to reach the threshold. – Mariella Moon, Engadget http://engt.co/2myBfQ1
