Are there any examples of pay-what-you-want using Bitcoin?

I could envisage this being done with Bitcoin where the products are toys, postcards, etc., homemade or otherwise, or of course digital products. You could call it a kind of shareware using Bitcoin, or PWYW with Bitcoin, or even value-for-value using Bitcoin, although I am only interested in the case where the minimum amount of Bitcoin payble would be zero Bitcoins.

My question is whether this has actually been tried yet using Bitcoin and, if so, then where and when?

  • Is this question really about bitcoin? You could ask the same question without mentioning a specific payment method and it would remain basically the same question. Dec 20, 2022 at 12:01
  • It's about Bitcoin, yes, but it could certainly also be asked of other cryptocurrencies or of cryptocurrency in general.

  • The term you are looking for is “donationware” or “pay what you want”.—I'm going to vote to close this question as I agree with Vojtěch, I do not see how this is about Bitcoin. If you disagree, please edit to clarify how your question relates to Bitcoin and vote to reopen.

  • On another site, I see this on one of my closed questions: i.stack.imgur.com/C1F5N.png, but I realize now that it takes 500 reputation to get that option. However, when you edit a question within five days of it having been closed, it automatically gets added to a review queue where people can vote to reopen. In this case, I just voted to reopen for you.
