Bitcoin is a Cryptocurrency. A cryptocurrency, crypto-currency, or crypto is a digital currency designed to work as a medium of exchange through a computer network that is not reliant on any central authority, such as a government or bank, to uphold or maintain it.

The OpenStreetMap project also accepts bitcoin donations



  • currency:XBT=yes Bitcoins are accepted/dispensed.
  • currency:XBT=no Bitcoins are not accepted/dispensed.
  • currency:others=no Add this tag if all accepted/dispensed currencies have been added to the feature, all other currencies which have not been explicitly tagged are treated as "not accepted".

Please use currency:XBT=* instead of currency:BTC=*. In fact "XBT" is ISO 4217 compliant. Do not use currency=bitcoin.
