After discovering and listening to the audio book at called Rebooting Money, I have decided to offer bonuses for Bitcoin payments. The part about the two gas stations really got me thinking.

All Bitcoin payments at Link2VoIP now enjoy a 2% deposit bonus. We will likely leave this bonus in place to incentivize Bitcoin over traditional payment methods.

Hello all,

First off: our apologies to the moderators if this is the incorrect place to post such an announcement. Smiley

We have come to the realization recently that the risks to us in accepting Bitcoins for payment is actually decreasing! We have had no problems converting our Bitcoins back into USDs to pay our bills so far.

In response to this great realization we have increased the Bitcoin 30-day deposit limit from $25 USD's worth of Bitcoins per account to $35 USD's worth of Bitcoins per account!

Wishing the community all the best,
Steven /

Having our customers pay by IP won't work well for us.

We'd have to coach customers into entering their username and other bits of data that we need in a special format into the payment message body. It is too prone to user error. I'm sure the IP payment option will work well for others. Smiley

There isn't an easy way to specify what to bind to.

Modify the source code, re-compile it. Tongue

Or just use a firewall. That's even easier.

I'm trying to set up a hidden service on tor, and I've copied the following into my torrc:

HiddenServiceDir /some/directory
HiddenServicePort 8333

but now I'd like to make bitcoin bind only to whereas "netstat -lp" shows that it is listening on all interfaces. I haven't easily found how to specify this.

We don't expire them. We recycle abandoned ones. It isn't a feature of Bitcoin, it is a feature of our integration software.

You are partly correct. bitcoind is a "terminate and stay resident program". You communicate with it over a JSON-RPC socket to send payments/poll for received payments. Wink
9  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Link2VoIP now has full automation on: April 22, 2010, 12:27:17 AM

That's a good question. Tongue

We generate a new Bitcoin address for each new payment. Once we receive payment to a Bitcoin address we look it up in our database, deposit it into the applicable Link2VoIP account, and expire the Bitcoin address. Very simple.

We also recycle abandoned addresses after 72 hours in order to keep the Bitcoin database as small as possible.

Feel free to signup and try it out if you wish.

We used to offer IAX2 many years ago until we experienced rapid growth that rendered our Asterisk server farm useless. They would consume threads into oblivion and crash. Back then the SIP stack for Asterisk was quite shoddy but it actually would hold up a lot better than IAX2 (surprisingly).

We were forced to buy Cisco gear and run opensips in the end.  Ah well.. Tongue

Pegging the exchange rate to how much energy is required to generate coins is probably a better calculation.

Money is only worth something if there is energy to back it up. It is, after all, just a marker against labour.

Cheers! Cheesy

The spread gets quite large when you go much higher than about 2 Euro. I'm suddenly liking his exchange rate calculation a lot less. Buyer beware!
13  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Bitcoin Exchange Rate on: April 16, 2010, 01:42:28 AM
Just did a test trade @ for Pecunix. Wink

I'll report back on how it goes.

Feel? You are asking a faceless corporation how it feels? Tongue j/k

It is working and our developers are excited at the possibilities that Bitcoin offers.

Which version are you running? 0.2 or a snapshot?

Oh, and " no version information available (required by ./bitcoin)" is worrisome.
18  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Link2VoIP now has full automation on: April 11, 2010, 12:23:37 PM
Up to 19 transactions now. And we've noticed a growth in the number of Bitcoin client IPs since we started promoting it to our "tech savy" user base.

I will post again once we have enough data for a daily transaction average. Smiley

I hope this message will offer encouragement.

Hello again,

I am happy to report that we have seen 12 automated Bitcoin payments overnight. Everything seems to be working great so far.

Average time between a spend and it showing up in our accounting system is about 1.2 minutes. That isn't bad considering that the transactions have to be peer reviewed first.

Have a great weekend guys! Smiley

Hello Bitcoiners,

Just thought I'd pop on this forum to announce that we have full Bitcoin automation operational now. It is a trial. A big "experiment"; if you will. Any/all feedback will be appreciated of course.

We have deposit limits of $25 USD/mo per account to limit financial risks to our business. We don't mind being a guarantor of Bitcoins.

We would like to partner with competent exchangers, so please spam us. Smiley

Warm regards,
Steven Lee, CTO of Link2VoIP
