    Since April, eztv the famous torrent website specialized in TV shows, accepts Bitcoin donations. They use it because, I quote :
    source : http://eztv.it/forum/30909/want-to-help-eztv-you-now-can-with-bitcoins/
    Therefore, Darkcoin which can really provide privacy, could be a great addition to their site and they don't know it yet !
    I tried to contact them but the forum registration is currently closed. Need someone who has access to their forum, or who can find an other way to reach them. ;)

    Any reason this is private?

    Propulsion Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't want the teams of all coins claiming that they offer anonymity, to try to contact eztv if they [the teams] didn't think about it. So I kept the idea private...

    I will contact thepiratebay.se too. They have Bitcoin and Litecoin donation addresses.
    Done
    You can do it too via https://thepiratebay.se/contact (try to look like a normal user concerned about his privacy :D)

    • I am very interested in contacting companies and merchants to promote Darkcoin just not sure if we should start now or wait for RC4 for some of them, for example, I think getting Darkcoin into Xapo.com would be huge and they have plenty of contact info on their website.

    I also think that we must wait for RC4 to come out before contacting merchants (10 DRK limit). But IMO it's time to contact some websites providing a donation address, to encourage them, if they care about the privacy of their users, to put a Darkcoin address too. We will reach a larger audience that way.

    EDIT : I changed the title of the thread.

    RC4 seems like a good jumping off point to me, though my personal opinion is that major usage isn't going to happen until after open source.

    Another option would be to ask the community to target requests at one or two sites per week so we can have some campaign cohesion.

    I just came across this 'old' thread,
    and am wondering if this is still on point ?
    "RC4 seems like a good jumping off point to me, ...."
    maybe a good idea to wait a bit longer
    - RC5
    - new Wallet design out
    - anonymization steady on all settings
    - ....

    any thoughts on this ?
    Otherwise we should work out a plan who/what/where to approach this idea !

    First, I would propose the adaptation of this script : https://github.com/zooitje/ultra-simple-Bitcoin-merchant for Darkcoin.
