This isn't a commitment, but, just as a curiosity: does the CEA take cryptocurrency?

Yes, we can take donations in cryptocurrency (it's worth noting that donating appreciated assets can have tax advantages over converting and donating in fiat). We're in the process of figuring out a solution that allows you to do this directly via the website, but for now if you want to donate in crypto please email lottery[at]effectivealtruism[dot]org and we can discuss

Maybe mention that on the site? There are a lot of crypto donations happening now.

Agreed — I'll get this updated early next week

An update on this: Cryptocurrency donations are now live on the site, so you can now enter the lottery (or make a regular donation to EA Funds) using BTC, ETH and LTC
