Donations allow users to support E-Hentai financially. The method for doing so is limited to Bitcoins.
- Convert funds to BitCoins or use a BitCoin client.
- Visit the Donation page.
- Send the desired amount of BitCoins to the wallet on the page (unique to each user; note that this is a deposit-only wallet and cannot be used for any other purposes).
- Enter an amount in USD to donate (can also be used to Adopt-A-Server).
- BitCoins in a user's E-Hentai wallet will be converted to USD at the time they are applied to a donation using the exchange rate shown on the Donation page. E-Hentai uses whichever is highest of the 7-day and 24-hour weighted averages provided by bitcoincharts.com plus a 10% bonus to cover for transaction fees and random volatility. It is recommended for those who have just purchased BitCoins to complete the transfer ASAP.
- Users DO NOT need to send any PMs after the transaction has been confirmed; donations are credited automatically.
- The most recommended sites to use are Coinbase, Bitstamp, BTC-e, or Circle.
- To buy from other individuals use LocalBitcoins.
- Check if your local area has a BitCoin ATM.
- For more alternatives see here.
- Donations are cumulative; e.g. if a user donates $20 then an additional $30 later on, that will count as $50 in donations for that user's donation level.
- Adopt-A-Server slots do NOT count towards a user's donation level.
- 10,000 credits per every dollar donated.
Stars are gained by reaching certain donation amounts. These rewards are permanent and cannot be deactivated. Users can go to this page to check the total amount they have donated.
- Daily rewards are received by triggering a Dawn of a New Day.
- Daily free archive amounts are filesize-based and are averaged over a 7-day sliding window. They do not apply to recreated archives.
- The Mod Power bonus is part of the capped portion.

Users willing to spend money to support the site but who are unable to utilize BitCoins may also consider Renting A Seedbox.
Trading for BitCoins
Users may exchange E-Hentai currency or HentaiVerse assets for BitCoins as long as they are sent directly to an E-Hentai wallet address. Any other trading for BitCoins is not permitted. Users may locate their E-Hentai wallet address via their Donation page. Prices for BTC and potential trading partners may be found via the WTB and WTS forums.
No other methods are usable for donating due to various complications. There are no plans for this to change. Users who wish to use PayPal or other third-party services to acquire BitCoins may do so via VirWoX.
PayPal's Acceptable Use Policy states that "You may not use the PayPal service for activities that: (2) relate to transactions involving (i) certain sexually oriented materials"; no definition is given for this. They may freeze accounts and deduct $2,500 per violation (as a "reasonable minimum") from any account at their sole discretion. Transactions for "sexually oriented digital goods delivered through a digital medium" are specifically prohibited.
