An Email Can Go a Long Way

On June 17, one of the moderators of the Reddit forum r/btc (Beijing Bitcoins) announced that he’d again convinced a very popular website to accept BCH donations. Last March, the avid BCH supporter persuaded the owner of Chess.com to accept the decentralized currency for subscriptions. This time around, he emailed the popular litigation website Courtlistener.com and convinced them to accept bitcoin cash as well.

“I’ve been relying on this site a lot recently to follow developments in the Kleiman v. Wright case and I noticed that their donation page already had BTC as an option, so I decided to shoot them an email,” the r/btc moderator stated.

“I notice that your donation page already includes the option to donate with Bitcoin (BTC),” the email to Courtlistener read. “Unfortunately, the fees on BTC are very high rendering it not-very-useful for smaller donations.” The email added:

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is a forked version of BTC that increased the network capacity and has perpetually minimal fees (average ~$0.001 per transaction compared to $2.70 per transaction on BTC). Note that these fees are not only the cost the donor has to pay to send you money, but the fee that you will need to pay yourselves whenever you need to move the bitcoins.

Bitcoin Cash Added to the Courtlistener Donation Page

A few days later, Courtlistener wrote back and said: “Hi, thanks for the suggestion. I went ahead and added Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum to our donate page: https://www.courtlistener.com/donate/ We really appreciate your support.” The BCH community was pleased to hear the news of another well known site accepting bitcoin cash. Launched in 2010, Courtlistener is one of the core subdivisions of the Free Law Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit designed to provide free legal materials and research tools.

The Free Law Project supports academic research and Courtlistener much like Pacer provides court documents and filings in one repository but for free. The site is popular throughout the U.S. and gets about 700,000 to 1 million views per month according to Alexa rankings. The project was founded by Brian Carver and Michael Lissner in order to increase the public’s access to the law.

On the r/btc forum post, the Free Law Project responded to all the BCH supporters celebrating the news. “Thanks for reaching out — We really do like hearing from folks and trying to make people happy,” the organization’s Reddit account replied. “We don’t watch cryptocurrency super closely and were just waiting for the ecosystem to get a little more mature before adding something beyond just regular Bitcoin — Seems like Bitcoin Cash is there.”
