Hi Togo,

I'll let you know if I find any popular cryptocurrency forum.

I am attaching the files of the last banner, so you can modify and use it as you wish, now it's yours.

Thanks for trying Togo!

I just sent Theymos a PM with a full description of our go live and my perspective on this.

Lets see if it reaches him.

Phore, a masternode coin, a fork of PIVX, got 2 banner ads on bitcointalk for Round #240 last week
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3218541.msg34322333#msg34322333

This is great news, meaning Theymos has opened up to masternode coins

I dont think we have the funding right now,
1 ad slot is going to cost about 0.26 BTC ($2,100)

But there is hope now,
Im tempted to bring it up in the current ad banner auction thread and see if we have the go ahead, Im not sure what to do

We were rejected again by Theymos on June 20th
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4471292.msg40517470#msg40517470

Quote
Rejected. I've decided that masternode coins can sometimes be acceptable, but Biblepay seems highly deceptive. For example, you say "10% of the emission goes to sponsoring Orphans, with provable contributions," but:
 - 10% of the monthly emission should be somewhere around 6 million coins, but the monthly trade volume tends to be only slightly higher than this, which is unbelievable if you're actually selling the coins in order to make donations.
 - This 10% goes to a hardcoded non-multisig address with no explanation.
 - "THE COIN HAS RPC COMMANDS THAT PROVE 100% OF CONTRIBUTIONS ARE SPENT THE WAY INTENDED" is completely false. The RPC command just totals up all of the payments to the hardcoded address. What happens after the coins go to that address is unexplained.
 - There is no non-profit registration, receipts for donations, any info about the people who are supposedly facilitating donations, etc.
 
Biblepay looks like a generic coin with hardcoded dev subsidy plus some probably-totally-fabricated marketing about orphans.

Is 501c3 status at the federal level being pursued for the BiblePay Foundation? If so, a pdf of the letter of exemption might be good to provide. This would be in addition to the Texas SOS registration that you note is in place.

Even if the application is currently in process (i.e. has been filled out and mailed in to the IRS with the corresponding application fee), you can show a copy of the initial letter they send (showing that the application has been received) or just state that the IRS non-profit exemption has been applied for and is currently pending.
