Bitcoin.org, the open source website now owned by the decentralized community of bitcoin enthusiasts has received 14 bitcoins valued at $120,000 on recorded as the largest gifting to the website in history.
Bitcoin.org was originally set up by Satoshi Nakamoto, the inventor of Bitcoin and Martti Malmi, one of the first developers who helped to build it. It ranks as one of the top 24,000 sites globally receiving as much as 2.1 million visitors monthly with most of these visitors landing from search engines such as Google.
This announcement was made known yesterday by the anonymous co-owner of the bitcoin.org site “Cobra”, and Michael Marquardt—known as “Theymos” in the Cobra owned bitcointalk forum. Cobra took to his twitter on Monday the 28th of May to make this announcement to his followers. In his tweet, he stated it was the largest donation anyone has gifted to the site and that it will be employed to the continuous evangelization of the new era of money. This will be employed in the further translation of the Bitcoin whitepaper and creation of more contents such as videos and other medium that will help to convey the message home to millions of people all over the world.
Thank you to whoever donated ~14 BTC to https://t.co/OsFgRFRRZb yesterday. We will use all of that money to continue to educate millions of people worldwide about Bitcoin. No other donation in this space will make as much of an impact as supporting the site that started it all.

He also assured the members of the public that these donations will keep the open-sourced Bitcoin.org website running continually in terms of maintenance and server costs which do not normally come free to operate.
With such huge donations, it is clear that the global community of Bitcoin enthusiasts are very much behind the first truly decentralized internet money. In some other circles, some participants of the bitcointalk forum advocating for this donation to be used to cover for fees most entrants require to pay for “evil fees”. Let’s see if that proposal will be accepted. In the meantime, congratulations to Bitcoin.org on this latest record-breaking donation received.
