History being made. First political campaign accepting #bitcoin contributions.

Using the BitPay service, the campaign was able to create "Buy Now" buttons for their website donation page in specific dollar amounts. When the button is clicked, the BitPay service collects the donor's name, email address and telephone number, and above certain dollar amounts it triggers the need to collect additional information required by law. The real-time exchange rates are recorded and logged for each transaction. In the event that the information provided by the donor is false or misleading, or cannot be verified, the campaign has a procedure in place to return the funds or donate them to a local non-political charity.
