Fundraiser for Luke Dashjr

  • Created one of the very first mining pools in 2011, and in 2014 released BFG miner, open source freeware to help others operate their Bitcoin miners. Both initiatives contributed significantly to helping Bitcoin stay decentralized.
  • On March 11, 2013, Luke was the first to warn others that the Bitcoin blockchain was splitting and to call for emergency measures.

  • With 321 commits to Bitcoin core, he’s currently ranked by github as 7th most prolific core dev.
  • Even though he’s most known for extensive code review and testing, Luke has contributed significant improvements to Bitcoin, such as figuring out how to deploy SegWit as a soft fork and BIPs 22 & 23.
