Since 2009 we have been providing I.T. equipment and training to less privileged communities in sub-Saharan Africa and in the process provided numerous volunteer and training opportunities to people here in the UK.
We think that Bitcoin is an exciting and innovative technology which will enable us to receive donations we may not otherwise receive and gain new supporters from around the world to help our cause.
Alan Turing was a pioneering computer scientist, cryptographer, and mathematician who contributed enormously to these fields in his time. His work has arguably paved the way for Satoshi Nakamoto's invention of Bitcoin and it is perhaps fitting that this exciting technology is now being used to help people all around the world.

What is Bitcoin?
Why is The Turing Trust accepting bitcoin donations?
How much is one bitcoin worth?
Can I donate less than one bitcoin?
Yes. 1 bitcoin = 1,000,000 bits. This high divisibility allows people to donate in smaller amounts which isn't always possible with traditional payment methods.
Is Bitcoin legal?
Yes and we discourage anyone from using it for illegal purposes. Every bitcoin transaction is stored on a public ledger meaning it leaves a data trail. In its present form we believe Bitcoin is better used as a tool for transparency rather than a tool for anonymity.
HMRC has issued guidelines for organizations accepting bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. More info can be found here.
Is it safe and secure to donate bitcoin to The Turing Trust?
Yes, all donations will be secured using multi-signature technology by a reputable wallet provider.
The Turing Trust provides training in I.T to it's volunteers....will this include bitcoin?
No but we will be giving away a small amount of bitcoin in the form of paper wallet's to new volunteers as part of our inductions. We believe this is an exciting and innovative technology which is worth learning about.
Will the Turing Trust be supporting the Bitcoin ecosystem in any other ways?
Yes, in the near future we will be hosting a full node to support the network.
