Throughout the development of Tallycoin Version 2.0, my focus was to make the core experience of fundraising with bitcoin as simple as possible.
While some bells and whistles from Version 1 have been removed, Version 2 differs not just in a new visual design and a more refined user experience, but also the backend system.
The new Tallycoin website is built around a payment tool I've named Tallypay.
Tallypay is an independent website plug-in that hooks in to our API backend. Users can add Tallypay to their own website to receive donations, as demonstrated at my other project bitcoinal.com
The tallyco.in website utilizes Tallypay to facilitate donations directly to fundraisers, like this one.
THE PATH AHEAD
It's important to note that Tallycoin has no business model and no fees are siphoned from other users fundraisers. I rely on donations to keep Tallycoin afloat.
The goal of this fundraiser is just $360, or 1 year of a $30/mo hosting bill.
Below is the plan for the next few updates.

Mobile Import Address Tool.
If you've ever needed to get a bitcoin address from a wallet on your phone and type it into your computer, you'll know how frustrating (and nerve-racking) this can be.
I will create a tool where you simply copy the address on your phone, scan a QR code and have the address imported into your Tallycoin account, which will be useful for setting up fundraisers.
Tallypay Plug-in Update
In preparation for the new Articles feature (see v2.1), a minor update to the Tallypay plug-in will be required.
The plug-in can be displayed as a large panel (see image above) or a button. I will make the button option more customizable and we'll use it on Articles.
A feature originally introduced in Version 1, but removed in Version 2.0 is Articles (formally known as Posts).
I will create a text editor similar to Medium.
The editor tool will include the ability to manage drafts, automatic saving while writing and will focus on formatting text, adding images and video, without any other distractions.
Readers of these articles will be able to tip the writer via Bitcoin on-chain or lightning with Tallypay.
