Patreon Alternative For Techlore

I really want to support Techlore financially, but I HATE Patreon.
So is it possible that you can make a Liberapay or just a better alternative to Patreon?
(I know there are other ways I can support you, but I don’t want to ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) )

We’ve explored many Patreon alts, including Liberapay, but it wouldn’t integrate with our perks the same way as Patreon - and we’re trying to avoid having too many platforms to manage. (All reasons why we shut down our YouTube Support tiers as well) If none of our paid support methods work for you, then there are always the listed free options on our site, or you can just support us in spirit :sparkles:


Well thus is the sacrifice with the internet. I do believe that the privacy sacrifice you make to support a cause you believe in matters more than the cost of less privacy, but that’s just me. My understanding is that if techlore gets funded the whole operation improves and can be in turn more private. I do hope there is a Monero option though even if I don’t know how to get some haha.

We do support Monero, have for a long time now, on the page I linked earlier (along with several other support methods) - Patreon is not the only way.

It must’ve slipped my mind well Emil there is that for you. If you can figure out how to obtain Monero in the first place.

I have the same question and was actually wondering about that for a long time. @Henry, I really appreciate all of the work you do and wish to donate. I don’t care about the “perks” that Patreon gives and also prefer a more privacy respecting donation platform.

Other than Liberapay there is also OpenCollective which a lot of open source projects and privacy resources (including Privacy Guides and TheNewOil) use. It’s not only the privacy aspect, also transparency (mainly OpenCollective) and no platform fees (Liberapay).

Do you think you might add another donation option in the future?

Side note: I will donate through Patreon if you choose not to add another option.

Especially since Patreon’s security concerns, I’m exploring options.


What security concerns? Haven’t heard of that.

Hey this is an ancient thread but I somehow re-stumbled on it and felt I should update it. Since this thread:

Hopefully this gives you all a few more options to support Techlore :slight_smile:
