Title: [ANN] Get Paid In Bitcoin (www.getpaidinbitcoin.com.au)
Post by: doof on December 18, 2015, 11:33:21 PM
Im am excited to announce Get Paid In Bitcoin for Australian residents.  Users can allocate part of their wages to be paid to be paid in bitcoin!  We hope this service will assist users becoming unbanked, and help users break the dependancy on banks.

Who are we?
Get Paid in Bitcoin is an Australian Company, ACN 167 096 415 ABN 24 167 096 415 http://abr.business.gov.au/SearchByAbn.aspx?SearchText=167+096+415

Both Adam and I have been involved in bitcoin for a number of years, and are both board members of the Bitcoin Association of Australia

You can email us at info@getpaidinbitcoin.com.au or bit message at BM-2cSuP6umWqxjLN7CBYK2qT8FvQhfqmyNVK.  All other contact info can be found on the home page.  PGP encrypted mail coming soon.  Public keys will be published in the contact section of the home page.

You can also speak to me in person at the Brisbane meetup, www.meetup.com/bitcoinbrisbane

Like anyone in this space, we encourage you to do your due diligence first.  We are happy to answer any emails, phone calls or chats in person, and won't be offended if you start using our service with a small amount of $AUD.

What we do
Put simply, we take part of your fiat wage purchase and transfer the equivalent about of bitcoin to your nominated addresses.  This can be split to a number of address, so that you can send to cold storage, a "day to day" wallet, or a card like CoinJars swipe card for easy spending.

Fees and rates
A flat fee of $1AUD for each deposit is charged.  There is a 10% discount for Bitcoin Association of Australia Members (http://www.bitcoin.asn.au)
.  We are also developing promotions and refer a friend incentives to reduce this fee. 

All rates are shown on the home page, and updated every 60seconds.  On the dashboard page you can also check the purchase rate.

Q&A
Happy to answer any questions and take feedback here.

Updates
This thread will be used for support queries and to announce new features.  Details on our sprints, releases and feature roadmap can be found at www.getpaidinbitcoin.com/home/news

The next feature we are developing is paying out to HD wallets for extra privacy.  This will be announced via the news page and here once completed.

[Update Sprint 4]
We did not consume as many story points as we would have liked this sprint. Most of the development effort was around finalising the branding, and making the dashboard as intuitive as possible. New drop down menus and modals have been added to try and achieve this goal. Other minor bugs where fixed, including some jQuery issues stoping the site rendering correctly on mobile devices.

I wouldnt store 10% of my wages in a wallet on their site... I imagine if they offered that service, people would assume it was a scam then.  We Aussies are a trusty bunch  ;)

Does your employer paying a % in bitcoin have any tax implications?

No.  PAYG is taken out by the employer anyway.  PM me for my ato.gov.au email if you have any tax questions.

Hi doof,

I have been thinking about doing this for a few months now and would like to give it a go.
You have done a lot of great work for the Australian bitcoin community so with you behind this company it give me a good feeling of trust.

How would this benefit me more than just say buying my coins each fortnight through Coinjar, better savings? less hassle?

Could you please PM me ato.gov.au email?

Less hassle is always good and after reading your website a little more this looks very easy.

I would like to start off with something smallish  like maybe 20% of my pay converted to bitcoins.
I see you charge a flat rate of $1 per deposit, is there any other fees at all? if not this would work out much cheaper and faster than Coinjar.
By my understanding the split of your paycheck is done on the banks end, any problems with frozen bank accounts in the past?

Im guessing once the fiat is availble in my bank then it would only take a few minutes for the transaction to be broadcasted to the network and would then be sent in btc to my wallet to await confirmation

Buying through Coinjar is only a 1% fee but that can add up and also can take between 3-5 days for the cash to clear so you can then buy coins, the price can rise a bit in those days and it makes it a long wait.

Does your company have any type of insurance in the event of a hack or error on the company side?

doof advised me that they have been having some trouble. I sent him a screenshot of the error page i was getting from trying to log on with desktop.
I tried again later and it worked using my android phone.

If you still have trouble just email them and they will get back to you.

One more question i have for doof is now that i have signed up it this instant so if i was to get paid in a few days it would send me the pre arranged bitcoin % of my paycheck?

Starting off small with any 3rd party is always advised.   We haven't had any issues thus far with banking.  Adam works with the banks on those relationships.  He will answer any email on info@getpaidinbitcoin.com.au

No other fees, and we publish our rates on the front page and also in your dashboard where you can peer review.  That is the plan.

Thats the plan.

We store most coins in a multisig wallet.  A manual process to our servers hot wallet is done when required, then paid to the client instantly.  As we do not hold coins on your behalf, our exposure to theft is small.

We also only store information that is required, such as in the registration form and that is encrypted.

Great thanks!
I have now signed up and will work out what percentage of my pay to convert tonight, hopefully by my next paycheck i will be getting bitcoins and fiat.

I will keep you all updated.

Looking at FAQ on your site and it says max deposit of $200.
If i wanted to convert $600 would that mean 3x $1 fee?

@bitkilo just following up regarding your log in issues.  Has this been resolved?

I've tested on Mac OSX + Safari & Firefox.  Ubuntu + FireFox and Windows 7 & 10 with Edge and Chrome, and can't seem to replicate.  We use a well know oAuth library too.

If you are willing to share any system settings, or things like are you using a VPN or disabling cookies so we can try trouble shoot.  Feel free to PM or BitMessage me.

Issue was not resolved but I have been speaking with Adam and will re-register in a day or 2.
The problems could be from my end with my VPN set up.

I am not concerened because even know I cant log into my account I have always received by bitcoins ontime.
I will always have patience with companies in beta stage and I have done my homework so I know there is nothing to worry about.

I'm in Australia and it sounds like an interesting idea.  How is it going so far?

Btw:

www.getpaidinbitcoin.com.au uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.azurewebsites.net, *.scm.azurewebsites.net, *.azure-mobile.net, *.scm.azure-mobile.net (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

You could start with putting your site behind CloudFlare with a free SSL cert.  It's easier to configure if you're having difficulty, especially if the developers aren't experienced enough to set everything up properly.  It will scan for DNS records, give you the CF DNS server names to use, and the transition to CF is smooth.  Downtime is almost unheard of.

Thanks for the update.  Just came on the site to post about the above SSL problem.  We have just switched over to a new Microsoft Azure hosting subscription.  There seems to be an certificate issue.

You can visit the site https://gpib.azurewebsites.net to get around this SSL issue.

I should have it fixed by tomorrow.

That is really good to know. So are you planning on spreading to third world countries as well, lots of people there are not aware of the benefits of bitcoins.

Yes, its on the back log.  Other things coming soon, PGP signed emails.  Payouts to HD wallets for extra privacy.  And looking at BitID for authentication.

Great to see users suggesting feedback so we know where to focus our devleopment.

Also news is now fixed so we will announce new features there.

2fa is a must with these type of accounts.

I will also be upping my transfer limit this week to about $400 AUD

This is a fantastic service and i'll be sticking with it.
Cheapest way to purchase bitcoins out  :)

They have been having issues with that address for as long as i have known, sometimes it works sometims not.
This link always works for me: https://gpib.azurewebsites.net/
They should really change the address on OP if this has become permanent.

If you are looking to join PM me and i can give you a referal code that will give both of us a gift, not sure what that is but probably a small amount of BTC each like Coinbase and many other companies do.

Hi doof,
Do we have any ETA on when 2fa and PGP signed emails may be released?
I was thinking that 2fa is probably not a huge thing since none of my own coins or private keys are stored within my account, still be good to have the option though but no rush.

Although i have been receiving this ontime every fortnight for months now today's transaction has not been sent (10.40pm at time of post), I am not too worried about this yet because i know you guys will come through but when dealing with money it's always a worry.

Also just a quick question about the sending and receiving addresses.
I know that i can change my receiving address and add more than 1 but will the sending address change at any time?

I have noticed that all payments to my wallet have come from the same address, that address currently does not have the balance to cover the bitcoin i have coming this fortnight, it looks as though this address may pay a couple of other people to but I'm guessing by the payments that it is not all the customers on your books, is this address automatically funded once a payment from my paycheck reaches your account?
(You don't need to answer these questions if they could be a security threat in any way)

Just let me say that i still have full confidence in this company and will be sticking with you guys.  8)
The late payment is probably due to the bloody banks causing some delay again to earn a few extra dollars profit while they have it in their hands.

Edit: Within 5min of this post the sending address seems to have been funded and i also checked my site account again and the dashboard shows that the cash has been received from my bank and it also shows a bitcoin payment amount with today's date but no tx (most likely no tx yet because the transaction is taking place as i write this)  :P

I will also be upping my transfer limit this week to about $400 AUD

This is a fantastic service and i'll be sticking with it.
Cheapest way to purchase bitcoins out  :)

Thanks for the feedback, great to hear!   We will be implementing PGP signed / encrypted emails soon.  Also confirm emails on actions like changing BTC addresses (2fa)

Sprint 8 is coming along well.  Stay tuned for updates.
Hi doof,
Do we have any ETA on when 2fa and PGP signed emails may be released?
I was thinking that 2fa is probably not a huge thing since none of my own coins or private keys are stored within my account, still be good to have the option though but no rush.

Sorry for the late reply.  Sprint 8 has been completed and deployed.  This includes 2fa, but not PGP signed or encrypted emails just yet.  We are looking at ways to download users PubKey from places like MIT key server.  A full list of changes can be found on the news page.  That said, we have some performance issues on the site we are working through.

Also just a quick question about the sending and receiving addresses.
I know that i can change my receiving address and add more than 1 but will the sending address change at any time?

I have noticed that all payments to my wallet have come from the same address, that address currently does not have the balance to cover the bitcoin i have coming this fortnight, it looks as though this address may pay a couple of other people to but I'm guessing by the payments that it is not all the customers on your books, is this address automatically funded once a payment from my paycheck reaches your account?
(You don't need to answer these questions if they could be a security threat in any way)

Yes it will.  Most coins are stored in a HD Msig wallet.  The hot wallet to send to customers isn't HD yet.  We are looking to making that part Msig + HD too.

Furthermore, we will be implementing HD wallets on the receivers end too.  The user will just be able to add the ExtPubKey instead of a Bitcoin Address.  This will give more privacy for the user.

However, we just need more testing on this.  We don't want to send customers coins to wrong addresses.

Updates seem to be coming along nicely and i will be sure to check out the latest on the news page.
Take as long as you guys need before any changes i don't want my hard earned coins ending up in someone elses wallet.

Hi doof,

Is $500 AUD still the max limit we can transfer or has the limit been bumped up again, if not any news on when this may increase again?
If $00 is the limit will the cents i have to add to the transaction so you know who the fiat cash came from affect it since this would just take it over the limit?

We don't have banking relationships in other countries yet.  Don't want to expand too soon.

Did you speak to Adam about this?  We can increase the limit on a case by case basis.  Send Adam an email on info@getpaidinbitcoin.com.au to confirm.

Is this something you are looking to do in the future? What benchmarks are you first trying to achieve in Australia before expansion? I imagine expanding into Europe will be easier than America.

Its more about risk and processes.  Make sure we learn and are sure our practices and software are secure and stable before taking on my customers and risk.  Also we need to make sure these processes are streamlined and scalable.

Just logged into my account and was surprised to see a few changes i wanted.
2fa can now be set up and also a feature to send a nominated percent of your btc paycheck to cold storag.
These are just the sort of changes i wanted to see, thanks guys I'm sure you worked hard getting it all implemented.

I have been with this company for months now and i couldn't be happier, highly recommend  :)

Are you in Australia or if not do you have any services like this available to you in your country?

It has been a great service to me with a excellent team running things behind the scenes.

Good luck Adam and team: https://news.bitcoin.com/bitcoin-salary-innovation-award/

Since you're already talking to bitcoin.com I think it's about time you started a thread on forum.bitcoin.com

I probably can't make it to Thursday's meet-up in the City, you should bring some business cards along, Simon didn't have any at the meet-up in May.

maybe this is a good development for cryptocurrency, but I disagree if btc is used as a salary for workers. Why, the value of btc coins always experiences great pluctuation and it's not good as a payment instrument.

I just got an email overnight saying they are going to introduce verification of ID and they won't process deposits until that happens.
