UPDATE: The appeal launched to help fund the introduction into IOTA of paperless QSLing (IOTA News 20 June 2016 and update 11 July 2016) has so far brought in GBP £11,266. This amounts to approximately 45% of our initial target of GBP £25,000. We are hugely grateful to the 86 contributors in 22 countries who so far have contributed.
The fact remains that until we reach our target we will need to call on a commercial loan. We believe that the IOTA Community is more than ready to help us to make this unnecessary and build a position financially where we can promote IOTA in ways that we have not previously been able to fund. We are still a long way short, so we invite IOTA enthusiasts to join our Happy Band of Friends of IOTA. You can make a payment through PayPal either to “Islands on the Air (IOTA)” or to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org but make sure to add in the comments field “Friends of IOTA” and your callsign to identify you.
The full appeal details here include an updated list of those who have reached the various levels of support.
