We as an independent new school publishing house do this for all our projects since the beginning of the same month.

Accepting donations has a long tradition, not only spanning the web but also for the first project we/I did back in the days: When cipha.net launched in late 2001, due to the fact that it was a non-commercial project, I as a writer found that it was a legitimate way to “earn” money via PayPal.
Things didn’t work out the way I hoped, but PayPal is still accepted there as on other older projects I did, e.g. zockerseele.com, our video games news site which still is alive and kicking today.
After that, there was a huge time gap.
In late 2012/early 2013 we also started to support Flattr, not only because it’s a great European idea and we wanted to show respect for this neat sharing-&-caring-system, but also because it is more subtle than these (often) very annoying banners hanging around on all of those websites in general.
And yeah, maybe we were also infected by the Bitcoin-Hype 2013 which will probably never happen again, but we also think it’s simply just a good thing to have a reliable cryptocurrency in existence;
it’s for the hackers and us cyberpunks as well as the whole Internet a very very interesting way of payment and we thought it is finally the time to show some respect as well.
Besides Flattr, right now the following projects support Bitcoins and we hope you will join the game too:
* aethyx.eu – Independent Semantic Online Publishing. Made in Europe.
* zockerseele.com – an independent video games weblog which started in 2005
* gizmeo.com – an independent gadget weblog
* jpcars.de – source about Japanese cars
* cipha.net – an intergalactic anthology antiquity
We included small buttons everywhere Bitcoin payments/donations are possible. And this will definitely be the case at least until 2033 when (theoretically) all 21 million bitcoins have been created.
Who knows what will happen after that. When Philospherstones (PHS) will be the next big thing tomorrow we would have no big problem to support that concept too! ^^
Fun fact: Neither Apple, nor Google or Microsoft are accepting Bitcoins yet. So we are even ahead of them. o.O N1ce.
Please donate! We love you! ♥
Only the bestest,
the aethyx staff
