About Bitcoin 2013: The Bitcoin Foundation is hosting the first major US summit, with a full schedule of panels, presenters, and speakers, dedicated entirely on Bitcoin. The conference will be hosting industry leading venture capitalists, key technologists, and top-tier regulatory thinkers to discuss topics including “Improving Ease of Use,” “Bitcoin Security,” and “Fraud Prevention.”

About Fr33 Aid:  Fr33 Aid is an all-volunteer, international non-profit organization of medically skilled liberty lovers created to help individuals organize projects that educate people about the value of mutual aid. Their main activity involves supporting volunteers who provide medical and educational services at liberty-related events.

About Anti War: Anti War is devoted to the cause of non-interventionism and is read by libertarians, pacifists, leftists, “greens,” independents, and many on the right who oppose imperialism.

About Free State Project: The Free State Project is an agreement among 20,000 pro-liberty activists to move to New Hampshire, where they will exert the fullest practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum role of government is the protection of life, liberty, and property.

Bitcoin Celebrated As Way To Avoid Taxes

Bitcoin Value Soars And Dropsby Eleazar David Melendez | Posted: 04/16/2013 at The Huffington Post

It’s 364 days until most Americans will once again face a deadline to file their taxes, but Teresa Warmke already has a plan for Tax Day 2014: She’s going to skip the whole thing.

The treasurer of a limited liability company, Warmke has struck on what she celebrates as a novel way to avoid any audit trail — and thereby any liabilities to Uncle Sam. Goodbye American dollar, hello bitcoin.

Fr33 Aid Abandons Non-Profit Tax Status in Favor of Bitcoin

Fr33Aid_200x200Published April 15th, 2013 at Daily Anarchist

Exciting news from the world of Bitcoin this Tax Cattle Day. Today is the day, with fear in our heart, we submit to the human farmers who fleece us under threat of violence. But today Fr33 Aid is making the courageous move of declaring their financial independence by willfully and publicly severing their ties with the IRS, forsaking all the banking privileges that entails, and announcing themselves as an entirely bitcoin based organization. As far as I know they are the first charitable organization to do this. I hope you can appreciate how radical this is.

Many organizations seek non-profit recognition from the IRS in an attempt to protect themselves from asset confiscation. In April 2012, Fr33 Aid applied for this privileged status, but since then the process has been nothing but a bureaucratic nightmare. Today Fr33 Aid announced they have abandoned their IRS application and adopted bitcoin as their primary financial instrument.

Fr33 Aid Treasurer, Teresa Warmke said:

“Now that there are ways for us to do banking without government involvement, we decided fulfilling (IRS demands) would not be a responsible way for Fr33 Aid to spend its money nor for our volunteers to spend their time.”

They determined that their attempt to comply with the IRS’s confusing demands was  not only unnecessary, but counterproductive to their mission of supporting volunteers who provide first aid and educational services at liberty-oriented events, and demonstrating the value of voluntary mutual aid. By making this bold transition into a bitcoin based organization they will be able circumvent the complex and burdensome requirements of state regulated banks, retain complete control over their assets, and focus entirely on their important mission. Teresa adds:

“It feels great to stop doing business with government agencies now!”

This as an important step toward the development of a robust non-profit sector in the bitcoin economy. Further, Fr33 Aid’s Director of Operations, Dr. Stephanie Murphy and Treasurer Teresa Warmke will participate in a panel about Bitcoin for Non-profit Organizations at the Bitcoin 2013 conference in San Jose, CA next month. They will be joined by Angela Keaton of AntiWar.com and Carla Gericke of the Free State Project.

Fr33 Aid is keeping their current bank account in order to accept dollar donations via check, credit card, PayPal and Dwolla, but the account will be kept as empty as possible to minimize the risk of either bank or government confiscation in the future. Teresa says:

“We don’t consider any of these payment methods as trustworthy as direct bitcoin donations. In the future, any donations we receive via traditional banking methods will be converted to bitcoin in a timely manner.”

Fr33 Aid is still committed to the level of transparency that the state requires from recognized non-profit organizations. They publish an annual report on their site with at least as much information as is normally disclosed on IRS Form 990.
