    Personally,i'm all for extra options,but don't think i'd use bitcoin myself (hassle,legal issues in my country regarding taxation,etc),despite there being a need for it/alternative options.
    just throwing my two cents out there,this is what I think (ideally, we'd continue with paypal but yeah...stuff can happen)

    If using bitcoin becomes an available option, someone needs to make a thread about how to gain it and how to use it for donation

    Setting up a bitcoin account and farming it is a hassle to search on google, would be nice if compiled in a single thread

    You're referring to mining, which is one method of gaining bitcoin. This is the best method for people who are in countries where bitcoin is strongly regulated. However, it eats up computer resources & requires high end CPU/GPUs to make anything out of it. The other option OS would most likely integrate is a currency exchange service that allows others to convert their country's currency into bitcoin.

    But it is true that a very simple & effective guide is needed on OS for donors.

    I'm too old school I think for cryptocurrency stuff. Given the awareness of how "off the books" those transactions can be for people so inclined, is there a chance that its use here could attract more scrutiny? PayPal might not be great, but it gives more transparency and legitimacy when agencies are trolling around to find illicit dealings. Just sayin'

    More options, more convenient.

    BTC is okay for me. You could also add other digital wallets like Skrill, Neteller, or Webmoney.

    Not only the mining, there are other ways to gain bitcoin although slower than mining, it's still a way to gain bitcoins

    I'm just going to probably embarrass myself and just come out and say it: I don't even know what bitcoin is... So, there's that to consider too.
