Thanks for your interest, but we have no plans to accept donations via Bitcoin (or anything other than PayPal) at this time.

Sorry to dig up an old thread.

But has this been re-considered?
Having used transmission for several years now, it would be nice to give back (paypal isn't an option).

I was also looking to donate and Paypal is not an option for me either.

If you would please re-consider, I think it is a good idea to accept donations via this method.

If you accept bitcoin donations, I will donate. I could not find a bitcoin donation option, so I did not donate yet.

I'm also going to donate via Bitcoin when you accept it. It's so easy (Paypal and cards are more difficult to use).

Please reconsider accepting bitcoin. If you want to avoid the price fluctuation of bitcoin, you can simply accept the bitcoin via or, who will help you convert immediately to USD for a very low fee, much lower than the 3% of paypal or credit cards. even processes your first $1 million revenue free of charge!

Hi! Just finished setting up Transmission, and jumped to the Tip Jar link ready to send a fraction of bitcoin.
Too bad it isn't possible at the moment. I suggest (re)considering adding it.

I'm using Bitcoins since 2010 and you really should NOT use a web wallet (because your money is stored on the servers of a "company"). We already had a huge scam in the past. A web wallet provider went into business, people started using it and after a while the people behind just stole all the bitcoins and left.

If you want a very simple but secure system just get the Bitcoin Core at - it is also the official wallet. Only downside is that you first have to synchronize to the network and that takes some days. A plus is that your wallet is very secure because you can protect it with a password and additionally encrypt it and it's just one file you have to backup.

If you're not trying to stay anonymous then Coinbase is likely a very safe option. It's got a lot of Silicon Valley investors and is kind of like the PayPal for Bitcoin at the moment.
