I am asking for this because this would enable anonymous donations, and in case of the “Mitgliedsbeitrag” for the .e.V. it could make life easy, because my projects/repositories could accept bitcoins (as doantions) and pay the coeberg e.V. from it without converting everything into EURO in between. Acepting bitcoins is best made use of if you do not have to convert/sell it, but instead pay someone in bitcoin.

Yes, this is an important question to be solved first. But as far as I know, bitcoins are treated as assets in germany. And so you need not immediately sell the bitcoins received. This is a matter of bookkeeping. I am sure there are experts in Berlin, which can give advice on that topic. This is of course just an idea and not an urgent matter, bitcins are not much used today. But I see advantages here (Standortvorteil).
