The parishioners over at the Church of St. Paul’s Ashgrove in Brisbane, Australia may no longer need a physical collection plate during service, because the church is now accepting bitcoin donations — in a move that sets out bitcoin can be used for good.
Reverend Tiffany Sparks says they’ve already started accepting bitcoin donations as of New Year’s Eve, but hints that they haven’t quite been popular, given that the amount of individuals in Brisbane as a whole with bitcoin is rather minimal.
Still, Rev. Sparks insists that the acceptance of the bitcoin is mostly designed to be symbolic in that the church will take what you will over them, be it cash or digital.
You can hear an audio interview with the Reverend on that matter at 612 ABC Brisbane.
