2  Economy / Service Discussion / Bitcoin Advertising Network recommendations on: July 10, 2015, 12:16:44 PM
Hey folks,

I've been looking through the forums for a good ad network for publishers as we're building a few blogs and looking for alternatives to Google AdSense. So far, I've come across coinurl and a-ads as being good options. I also checked out AdBit, but they only have about 4 different ad sizes, and 300x250 medium rectangle is no where to be found. Meanwhile, seeing quite a number of bad experiences with

3  Economy / Service Discussion / Hardware miner colocation hosting services on: June 20, 2015, 03:41:57 PM
Are there any colocation hosting services for hardware miners? I've been trying to find information for this, but haven't made much progress. I'm fed up with the cloud mining scams that keep popping up.

Airbus, the European aerospace giant, has won a contract to build 900 communications satellites for OneWeb's global high-speed satellite Internet service. OneWeb appears to be on target to launch 700 of the satellites in 2018. Both Richard Branson's Virgin Group and Qualcomm are still on board as major investors, and the project is expected to cost somewhere between £1.3 and £1.9 billion ($2-3 billion). SpaceX (with funding from Google) is also looking to compete in this same space, but its constellation isn't due until at least 2020.

Personally, I find this to be a very interesting project for satellite Internet. The latency will be lower since they're going to be low altitude.

7  Economy / Service Announcements / [ANN] BitDrive Merchant Services for accepting bitcoin payments on: April 15, 2015, 02:18:50 PM
Hey everyone,

BitDrive provides merchant services for accepting Bitcoin payments on your web site or third-party shopping carts using an intuitive and straightforward interface, with support for Instant Payment Notifications (IPN). There is also a simple payment form which allows you to create payment or donation buttons very quickly. It actually takes less than 5 minutes to get up and running once you activate a merchant account. All you need to provide is a business name (this can be any name as long as you're authorised to use this name and it does not infringe on any trademarks, or even your full name) and website URL to start receiving payments, and we do not require any ID documents nor perform verification. We also do not hold or retain any funds, as payments are sent directly to the bitcoin address that you configure in your merchant account. We do NOT deal with converting bitcoins to fiat.

Since we're trying to get a number of people using our services, we are offering the merchant accounts for an initial fee of 3 BTC (still open to special discounts) until 31st May, 2015. If you would like to take advantage of this, please PM me with the email address that you used to create your account, and we will activate the discounted fee for you.

Here's what our checkout interface looks like.

Documentation for our merchant services and notifications is publicly available and it can be found at

Currently, we have extensions for a number of third-party e-commerce platforms including Magento and PrestaShop. We are actively developing more extensions and we'll be updating our Help Centre pages as they become available. You can find the extensions that we've built so far at Activating the merchant account service costs a one-time fee of 20 BTC (3 BTC promotional fee until May 31st, 2015), but if you're interested and would like to get started today, you can PM me and we will provide a reasonable discount on a case-by-case basis.

BitDrive is currently live at

Thank you for your interest.
8  Bitcoin / Project Development / [ANN] BitDrive - Online Bitcoin Wallet and Merchant Services on: April 10, 2015, 12:09:13 PM
Hey everyone,

We're announcing BitDrive, a service we've been working on for a while now. It is an online Bitcoin wallet and a way to accept Bitcoin payments directly. It's currently in open beta, and we're accepting new sign ups at the moment. All transactions are performed on-chain.

You can access BitDrive at

Basic Wallet
Creating a basic wallet is very simple and it's completely free. All that's required is to get started is your email address and a password. We enforce 2FA authentication on all accounts using the email address. We are considering enabling dual 2FA using email and SMS text messages to your phone.

HD and Multisignature?
We are hard at work on this and intend to add these features within the next month or two.

Merchant services?
We charge a one-time fee of 20BTC for access to our merchant service. We do not charge any fees for subsequent payments. We also provide an Instant Payment Notification service for sending notifications to a configured URL once payments have been completed.

Why use our merchant service?
We do not require any verification to get started accepting Bitcoin payments. Just input all the required information after paying for your merchant account and copy the simple integration code to get started. All payments are forwarded directly to the merchant's configured Bitcoin address, and we do not retain any of the funds. Note that direct payments (without a BitDrive account) will still require the usual miner's fee (0.0001BTC) to be paid, so you would need to factor this into your pricing. If a payment is made through a user's BitDrive account, the miner's fee will be paid by the buyer.

Do we deal with fiat?
No, we not have any plans to deal with fiat at this time, nor in the near future.

We're open to your suggestions and feedback, so feel free to reply here or email us:

13  Bitcoin / Project Development / [ANN] Bitdash Wallet for Android now available from the Play Store on: November 01, 2014, 07:45:35 AM
We finally managed to get an early release of Bitdash Wallet to the Play Store. It is meant to be an easy to use, straightforward Bitcoin wallet which supports multiple receiving addresses and sending Bitcoins to multiple recipients at the same time.

It can work completely offline, except for when you intend to send transactions. Public/private key pairs are generated on the device and the private keys are used to sign transactions only before sending. Private keys never leave your device for any reason whatsoever. The app leverages the API to send signed transactions, retrieve wallet balances and unspent inputs, as well as retrieve recent transactions.

The release is a beta, so there could still some bugs that need to be sorted out. Suggestions and feedback will be greatly appreciated.

You can get the app from

If you like the app, and would like to show some love or support, you can make a donation to 13KCuhFhVhNYYzUF9MLJAwUAEcoc3ykUAA
14  Bitcoin / Project Development / [WIP] Bitdash Wallet for Android on: October 27, 2014, 02:34:43 PM
Hey everyone,

My team has working on a wallet app for Android which we plan to release to the Play Store within the next few months. It is still very much an early work in progress, so there is no alpha or beta release available yet. However, here are a few screenshots of what we have so far.

We intend to implement support several multiple wallet addresses for receiving (perhaps up to 50 or 100), and the ability to send to multiple addresses in one transaction, among other things.

We're not looking for donations, but if you like the idea and you would like to donate, you can send to 1F5tQ3cwLCQJEgqCEYyZabmUzxWjir2n63

Suggestions and feedback will be appreciated.

15  Bitcoin / Project Development / Wallet balance on: October 26, 2014, 05:52:11 AM
I'm building a wallet for Android, and I was wondering what values would make sense to be displayed as the wallet balance.

I'm querying a third-party API for obtaining the balances. If I display the wallet balance making use of confirmed balances from transactions, it's possible that there may be unconfirmed transactions and this doesn't reflect the actual spendable balance. The other option is to get a list of the unspents available and display the total value of unspents as the wallet balance. Which seems more reasonable?
16  Other / Beginners & Help / Clarification regarding calculating fees for a raw transaction on: October 24, 2014, 04:21:59 AM
I've been reading up on how to create transactions, and I have stumbled upon some confusing details that I'd like to clarify. According to, it says:

A transaction may be safely sent without fees if these conditions are met:
- It is smaller than 1,000 bytes.
- All outputs are 0.01 BTC or larger.
- Its priority is large enough (see the Technical Info section below)

Emphasis mine. It then goes on to state, "As an example, a fee of 0.1 mBTC (0.0001 BTC) would be added to a 746 byte transaction." This is where I get confused.

Does this mean that transactions below 1000 bytes cannot be sent without fees?

17  Bitcoin / Legal / Legislation around operating a cyptocurrency gaming site on: October 23, 2014, 03:57:52 PM
Looking for some advise here. Hypothetically speaking, let's say I want to establish a offshore business that deals with playing games with Bitcoin bets, say Poker for example, would this be legal? Would I require a gambling license for this kind of situation, since Bitcoin is not considered currency in all jurisdictions yet? What if it's a digital game, like an MMO, for example? Are there any guides or precedents that I can refer to?

18  Other / Beginners & Help / Hi everyone! Long time lurker finally breaking silence. on: October 23, 2014, 03:19:21 PM
Hey folks!

I've been a long term lurker with a few Bitcoins and I haven't really felt the need to post or speak on any issues. But over the past few weeks, I got a renewed interest in Bitcoin. I am a software developer and I'm working on some projects which I hope will prove useful in the ecosystem. More details on those as they're ready for public unveiling.

It sure has been a rollercoaster ride so far. I only started noticing Bitcoin when I saw news of the price go from $33 to $1 (when I wasn't really paying attention), then back up to $266+, and more recently over $1000 late last year. I've been reading all lost investments and all about the scams and drama (most especially MtGox and BFL). But ultimately, I believe there is a future in Bitcoin and it's here to stay.

Thank you for reading. I hope to be able contribute in a useful manner.
