Congressman Accepts Bitcoin Donations at New Year’s Eve Party

What better way is there for a politician to get bitcoin donations than by attending a New Year’s Eve party and holding up a QR code to a donation address? That’s right, there isn’t any.

Congressman Steve Stockman did just that, attending a New Year’s Eve party in the New York City’s financial district on Broad Street. A quick scan of the QR on the provided picture posted to Reddit shows the address has received about $10 USD, which means the Congressman was either very unpopular, or someone manipulated the photo and posted their own QR code.

Either way, it’s pretty interesting.

    Stockman just started the future of political fundraising: Begging with QR-Codes. “It’s money too, aight?”: http://imgur.com/3bz4cb9
