It might be prudent to start up a fund sooner, rather than later. That way it’s in place if needed. Also, the fund could be maintained in, or periodically shifted to, an account that could insulate the fund from the ravages of inflation. That could also amplify its original purpose (I recommend Turk’s Goldmoney).
If the fund is not needed for the DP specifically, then part stays as insurance, and part of the fund goes where it is needed; where it is needed within this specific need to defend internet organizations against malicious attacks; or perhaps to organizations that are already gearing up for this battle. Such a fund could become a force unto itself.
