1  Economy / Marketplace / What are some high valued bitcoin related websites? on: November 16, 2015, 08:57:30 AM
There are a lot of new websites related to gambling and pornography in the Bitcoin world. But most of them are junk (IMO) having less quality in-terms of usability and user interface.

I am sure that I read somewhere that theymos (the forum admin) was ready to pay thousands of BTC for the new forum software which is under development. Does anyone know anything more about it?

I personally value to be around BTC10,000. Do you guys have any idea about how much bitcoin related websites are valued out there? Feel free to add your two cents. Smiley
2  Local / India / Any Bitcoin users from Tamilnadu? on: July 09, 2015, 03:01:14 PM

I am a Bitcoin enthusiast from the city of Coimbatore, although my native is Tirunelveli. I've known about bitcoins for 3 years, still haven't had the chance of getting some decent amount of coins. I would like to hear from fellow Tamil Bitcoin users. Smiley

3  Bitcoin / Project Development / Simple free bitcoin feeds API for webmasters - Alpha stage (Donations accepted) on: July 09, 2015, 12:34:05 PM
Hello Bitcoiners and webmasters!  Smiley

I have been working on a simple web application for a couple of days now, to develop a web API that gives out Random Text Feeds about Bitcoins every time. This is some random quote or statement or hint about anything related to the Bitcoin world.

If you are not sure about what exactly it is, please go ahead and see for yourself : . I have a small number of feeds hosted right now.

Please note that this API is not ready for use in production, its still in it's alpha phase. However, you can go ahead and give it a try. The API is subject to change. It can't handle more requests and may go down anytime. It is under heavy development right now with more cool features and proper token system.

Where can you use this? and why?

This can be used in your own Bitcoin website. This feed can give out some interesting facts about Bitcoins to your users, which will be quite interesting for them. More features are coming up to categorize feeds according to their different levels, types, etc.

Donations are welcome:

This API is completely free to use now and forever. However, this API is hosted on my free Heroku account right now along with the database. Also, I can't move it to a dedicated domain name. So, if you are interested in helping out, please donate how much ever you can to this BTC address : 15wN6JoN2aNR5u6CPATGxqagxWLAvBV8kg

All your donations will only be used to develop and maintain the website and the service and not for personal profit.

[Edit] Why is it shown as a malware site in a few other URL scanners?

It is because the app is hosted in Heroku's free app hosting subdomain `` ( Since a lot of people host their apps in that root domain, the domain itself is marked as a malicious site. So, please consider donating/helping so that the app can be moved to its own domain.

Please go ahead and let me know what you think! Smiley

5  Other / Beginners & Help / Micro-donations for newbies - Round 1 (5 donations) on: July 04, 2015, 11:46:42 AM
Okay. I am not a Bitcoin millionaire or anything like that. I just have less than 1 BTC in my wallet right now, which I received from a more generous BTC user.  Grin

Having said that, I just thought that I can donate a few Bitcoins for newbies (like me) who haven't earned even a single Satoshi until now. I am going to donate 10 bits (0.000 010 BTC) for the first five people requesting in this thread.

Please keep in mind that the small amount to be donated is not to make you rich or anything. It is just to get a practical experience of using Bitcoins.

For donation seekers:

1. Post your Bitcoin address in the reply.
2. Do not request BTC if you already have (or had) some.
3. Do not spam.
4. Request only for your wallet alone.

For donators:

For people like me who are interested to make micro-donations are welcome to post in this thread. Please also include details like how much you can donate each time and the total number of donations in this thread.

Please don't spam or make promises you can't keep. Thanks for understanding Smiley
6  Other / New forum software / What technologies are being used to develop the new forum software? on: June 29, 2015, 03:12:53 PM
In the pinned post, theymos has mentioned that the new software is built using node.js. However, I am curious what the other technologies used to build the software; like the database, etc.

Anyone has a say about this? Smiley
7  Economy / Services / How much will you pay for a social networking website? on: June 28, 2015, 05:16:29 PM
I'm currently in the process of building a networking website for bitcoin users (not exactly social networking as mentioned in the title).

1. Python web application.
2. Graph database (suitable for a networking application and highly scalable).
3. Using Version Control (Git)
4. API first architecture. So easily extendable to mobile application.
5. Selling along with the domain name bitcoin[xxxx].org. (Domain name related to bitcoin. Matches with the theme of the web app)
6. AJAXified wherever possible.

Features of the website cannot be disclosed now. But, it has basic features like messaging, feed, post, etc.  Smiley

For how much Bitcoins can I sell the web app for?
8  Economy / Auctions / How much can I sell a domain name related to Bitcoin for? (in BTC) on: June 23, 2015, 05:06:12 PM
I recently bought a new domain - However, this domain hasn't been used before. How many Bitcoins do you think I can sell this domain for, if anyone is interested to buy it ((at all. I mean, I know its difficult to sell this new domain name  Smiley )? I'm not seriously considering selling the domain right away. I'm just curious.

If you have a similar domain, how much will you sell it for?
9  Local / India / Buy bitcoin hoodies in India (for INR) on: June 21, 2015, 10:26:55 AM
Is there any site where I can buy Bitcoins, from India? I discovered a few sites, but they seem costly when converted from US Dollars to Rupees (like $35 which is kinda costly).
10  Economy / Services / Web app and Android app developer willing to work for Bitcoins on: June 21, 2015, 07:37:59 AM
OK, I'm not sure if this is the right category for this kind of post. Please let me know if it isn't so that I can post it under the right board.

My friend and I are CS students who are willing to freelance for bitcoins. We can build web applications (Python Flask developers) and Android applications (native Java). We don't work with CMSs like Joomla, Drupal and Wordpress however.

We can also help out with the technical part of any idea you have, and get paid/share.

11  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Why does synchronization take so long? on: November 08, 2012, 11:22:26 AM
Hello bitcoiners!

Recently, I installed bitcoin client in my Ubuntu desktop and the synchronization process started. It started with a good speed but as time went on, the speed gradually reduced and now, it takes approximately about 5 seconds per block.

My question is, what is the possible size of one block? Is it because of the size of each block that it takes that long or is there some other reason for this?  Undecided
12  Other / Beginners & Help / Wallet (out of sync) - bitcoin client on: November 02, 2012, 01:51:57 PM
I have this problem. My bitcoin client says "wallet out of sync". Does it require a static ip address for bitcoin clients to work? Currenlty im using Ubuntu 11.10 and the internet connection is wifi type provided by my University. Is there a chance that they could block peer-to-peer connections?

Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone!

I really amazed to hear many of you have found your own ways to mange to make some bitcoins.
