1  Bitcoin / Project Development / [ANN] [BETA] altdroid - Bitcoin-powered Android app store on: January 04, 2017, 04:17:33 AM

Hi guys,

I am happy to announce the BETA for altdroid. We are currently looking for Android app developers with published apps to provide feedback on the platform. Please PM me if you are interested or contact us on Twitter. More general info to come in the next few weeks!

What is altdroid?

altdroid is an alternative Android app store for free and paid apps that offers a global platform for users to discover apps without restrictions and app developers monetize their apps for Bitcoins.

Why altdroid?
  • For users: Find the apps you want, including apps that wouldn't be allowed on mainstream app stores. Pay for apps and games securely and more privately with Bitcoins!
  • For developers: Offer your existing apps to a truly global audience no country restrictions for developers or users. Accepting Bitcoin for your apps offers an entirely new revenue stream for your paid apps.
  • For all: Apps are more than apps; apps are human ideas. We want to enable developers and artists alike in the world to create and share their projects without geopolitical barriers.

2  Economy / Service Announcements / [ANN] - Instantly Exchange Bitcoins for Amazon Giftcards on: April 20, 2013, 05:42:32 PM
Hello all,

Just launched a new site that allows you to purchase Amazon gift cards with Bitcoins. As a software engineer and Bitcoin miner, this has long been a service that I've wanted to provide for the Bitcoin community. I would appreciate any constructive feedback.

The basic idea is you select a gift card amount you want and the payment processor evaluates how many Bitcoins that would cost based on the current trading conditions. You send the Bitcoins to a specified address and as soon as it is verified on the network, you receive an email with an Amazon claim code. The entire process is automated and electronic. The site integrates the MtGox Merchant APIs.

The primary goal is to give people a way to easy convert their Bitcoins into another currency equivalent without having to set up bank accounts, exchange accounts, wire funds, and so on. It is also completely anonymous, requiring only your email address for the delivery of the Amazon gift card claim code.

For now, only Amazon US is supported and only $US25 denominations. More countries and denominations will be available over the next few weeks and months.

3  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Keep tripping the breaker... on: July 31, 2011, 07:18:45 PM
I live in an apartment in a place where no one has ACs... unless you are bitcoin mining that is. Smiley I have two rigs pulling around 900w combined I think on full GPU load. I also have a 10,000btu portable AC unit cooling the room. I can't find out specifically, but I am led to believe such a unit would pull around 1000w. I'm not an electrical engineer at all, but I've done some reading and it seems a common breaker trips at 15amps or 1800watts at 120v. Is there anything I can do from an engineering standpoint to help out this situation? Obviously I am trying to avoid moving any of the devices to other rooms. All the outlets in this room seem to be on the same breaker switch. There are also radiant heaters in the floorboards which have two switches on the breaker. Could someone who knew what they were doing easily "patch into" these and turn them into outlets for me?
