They accept donations in Monero and other cryptocurrencies via Globee.Check back next week for another merchant that accepts Monero for their goods and services.
If you want to get involved in making Monero better, but aren’t sure how, check out the volunteer opportunities below.
If you know of any merchants or exchanges that are still using a long form payment ID, please let the community know so we can contact them and ask them to integrated addresses or subaddresses. Feel free to leave them in the comments of this Reddit thread.
Download I2P Zero for your machine, follow the direction in the README, and report any issues to the Issue tracker on GitHub, or IRC channel #i2p-zero.
Anyone with moderate technical ability is encouraged to try to build and run Monero nightlies. Do not trust it with your Monero, but feel free to open an Issue on Github as problems arise. Instructions to build on your OS of choice can be found on GitHub.
