Title: Looking for programmer to add Pecunix GAU to bitcoin central
Post by: jgarzik on January 26, 2011, 10:32:49 PM

I'll offer 500 BTC to the person or group that contributes working Pecunix GAU support to bitcoin-central open source project.

please specify:

currently BC (bitcoin-central) supports only free trading
if there are matching buy/sell trade orders, they are mutualy satisfied, balances changed and the site operator has 0 % revenue

Q1: do you accept this behavior or how to you want to control transaction fees?
Q2: if fees yes, do you want a global fee applicable to all supported currencies?
Q3: do you want a fee per currency, default fee applicable if currency fee not selected or not known yet (p.ex. after currency added but the fee for transactions in that currency not specified yet)?
Q4: if fees yes, do you want to charge them in BTC or in the currency of transction?

Q5: currently BC only allows funded transactions. how would you update PecGAU balances of funded accounts?
(hint manually, pecunix api)
are you familiar with the fact that there is one wallet per currency and the balances are stored in a database?
is that in line with your imagination of pecunix support?

please discuss

That's over-thinking the problem.  Simply expressed, duplicate existing LRUSD support for Pecunix GAU, using Pecunix's API rather than LR's API.  PGAU balance will appear beside LRUSD, and BTC/PGAU may be traded as BTC/LRUSD are traded now.

OK, thanks, that would answer Q1 - no fees, Q2..Q4 n/a,
Q5 - replace LR API with Pecunix's API (to display Pecunix balance)
i won't code it, do not know Ruby yet but someone might start right away.

Per their API documentation [1]  amounts may be to an accuracy of 4 decimal places.

Keep in mind that Pecunix has disabled its API for outgoing payments since 2008-ish. To automate this you'd have to do some screenscraping and resolve their (simple) Captcha.

Do you mean that they don't have an SCI ?

PRI == SCI, at Pecunix.

Thus, bitcoin central PGAU deposits can be automated, but bitcoin central PGAU withdrawals require you to manually login to their website and issue payments.

Ok, so that just means PGAU withdrawals will be manual

done!

See here (http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3098.0)

jgarzik, you should confirm your BC account number so I can credit you the gold I used for testing.

I consider the bounty paid.  I donated 2 GAU to davout and bitcoin-central, now that Pecunix GAU is supported there for trading.
