1281  Other / Off-topic / Banks with an API on: June 06, 2011, 09:15:59 AM
Hey,

For Britcoin we currently use a business account. Deposits are downloaded as a CSV file and parsed. Withdrawals are done by a javascript robot.

Soon we will be gaining legal status, we're doing a rewrite of the software and have a security guy consulting to make the site super secure. I want to do everything properly all around. It's been hard work but everything is falling into place and we need the last piece of the puzzle.

I cannot find a UK bank with an API. It's driving me nuts. Whoever I call has no idea, and corporate accounts are for businesses with > 5mil in turnover / year.

- Can automate withdrawals and fetch deposits without human intervention using an API.
- Immediate receiving of deposits.
- Whenever a payment is made to somebody, it immediately updates the bank balance so we can compare to our own internal balance for book-keeping purposes.
- Doesn't close on weekends (preferably).

I don't need any crappy ePayment service. A bank with a reference field is perfectly adequate. It should be possible since bullionvault.com seems to have the same setup as us (bank deposit + name in reference field).

If anyone knows any consultants to call then that's OK if they would be able to advise us. I just don't want to end up calling, paying and then they say "lol, no idea what you're talking about, sry". e payment gateways use VISA/Mastercard and they're out of the question (not smart when they decide to shut down Bitcoin).

Thanks.

This is an absolutely terrible way for Bitcoin to break out. I was at least hoping firstly we were going to see articles about the positives of Bitcoin before we started seeing about the illegal stuff. Everything we've been working on for months has been to protect Bitcoin from attack. Things like this are frightening if this is a prophecy of future news reporting on Bitcoin.

Please be only a one time thing.
1283  Bitcoin / Alternative clients / Re: I don't like Gavin's and Jeff's Bitcoin client - can I write my own? on: June 03, 2011, 04:06:53 PM
Sure you can:

Check out the bindings we made for several languages:
https://gitorious.org/freecoin/freecoin/trees/master/bindings

Also you can as others mentioned use the RPC api to write your own client as we've done here:
https://gitorious.org/freecoin/spesmilo

Or you can write your own implementation of the Bitcoin protocol as we've done too:

If you want to get mucked in and involved then the source code is open:

https://gitorious.org/intersango/

It's the software we use for Britcoin, https://britcoin.co.uk/

We're working on 2.0 version which will be more secure and have a ton more features.

Oh yeah, we charge NO fees. Wink

I got SoS to accept Bitcoin,

 Shocked

If you haven't listened to this music then do so- it will cause you to appreciate science so much. I've been playing it near everyday since the last year XD

Man so happy they accept Bitcoins. Donate to them. Their work is absolutely incredible. It's because of SoS that my sister is studying astrophysics.

That'd be most welcome since I only have 100 BC (I'm a bad hoarder).

For people who enter their details wrong: don't do it. It causes me a massive headache when balancing the sheets. In any case, usually the bank pretends they processed the payment then my sister gets a letter in the mail 1 week later saying it was rejected and the funds re-appear in my bank account. I then have to manually trawl backwards through email/records to see whose it was and add the funds back to their account. So it will take a while.

Also, can people stop spamming my email with silly questions? It's common that I get emails from people along the lines of "I just deposited GBP. Where are my Bitcoins?". Silly email = swamp my inbox = important mails from people with real issues get missed.
1294  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Refer to 'VERIFYING' not mining when explaining the bitcoin on: May 27, 2011, 06:47:36 AM
Hey,

When explaining to people about bitcoin, do yourself a favour by talking about bitcoins being introduced through the process of verifying transactions. The verifiers gain a reward for securing the network against attack.

People understand faster than when I use the ill fated gold mining analogy. Verifying more accurately conveys the nature of confirmations. Mining has the negative connotation of being a way for people to get free (gratis) money.
1295  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: UK exchange: Britcoin on: May 26, 2011, 09:04:22 PM
Here are the majority of reasons why people's deposits don't go through and I have to do them manually:

- You misspell your deposit code.
- Your bank fubars the reference field adding junk or dropping it entirely.
- You try a deposit on the weekend when banks are closed.

For withdrawals it happens that often people forget or mistype their sort code. Even then, withdrawals take a few days.

Anyway I run the service so people can get GBP in the UK and it's tireless work. If you want, then the source code is open for you to setup your own exchange. Sometimes it's hard to respond because I get upwards of 20+ emails a day.

Well we have a new version of the site at https://gitorious.org/intersango/intersango/commits/exper

but it's experimental and awaiting testing before the changes are rolled out for real.

1299  Other / Obsolete (buying) / Buy me a bus ticket for easy BC on: May 22, 2011, 04:08:06 PM
Hey,

Help me out by buying a bus ticket for me on eurolines.nl (they accept VISA) and I'll send BC with a small bonus.

Tickets are 138 EUR or $196. From MtGox last price that's 196/6.36 = 30.82 BC.

I'll give 31.25 BC.

First come first served. Smiley
