Coins, Patreon Feedback Round 2, Plus Our Fundraiser

Separate from Patreon: Collectable Coins Will Be For Sale

These are 2 inch metal coins with color and texture.  Only 300 have been made (seven of which have gone to the developers) and each one has a sequential number printed on it.

If these are a success, we will be designing and selling more coins, but this will be the only limited edition run with sequential numbering, so if you’re a collector or just a die hard fan, you’ll need to act fast.  We’ll do another blog post announcing when they are available for purchase.

Results of the Pi-hole User Survey

Staying Free

Pi-hole will remain free in both meanings of the word: free of charge and open source.  We know the survey spooked many of your fears and you may have considered several worst case scenarios.  We heard you loud and clear, you don’t want us to charge money for Pi-hole and we won’t.

In it’s current state, Pi-hole is free of charge and can be used to protect your privacy–a human right to which everyone is entitled.  And we intend to keep it that way.  At the end of this article, you will find some information on how much it costs to run Pi-hole from month-to-month; something you wanted to know based on the survey.  This will be specific, including the salaries needed to allow us to develop full/part time and bring you more updates and features faster while also providing you better support.  It will also include the cost of support and QA/testing, marketing, research, business development, legal, operational, etc. Continue reading “Results of the Pi-hole User Survey”
