Split CP discussion to off-topic.

Now that we've been featured on Forbes and Time, I think Der Spiegel would be the next step.
64  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: [RFC] Bitcoin Payment URI scheme on: April 20, 2011, 07:51:46 PM
Thanks for quick completion, Luke!

You can test the URIs on Firefox (3.5 and above):

  • Type about:config into the Location Bar (address bar) and press Enter.
  • Right-click -> New -> Boolean -> Name: network.protocol-handler.expose.bitcoin -> Value -> false
  • Create an html page with a bitcoin-link: <a href="bitcoin:bitcoinaddress">payment link</a>
  • Click the link and you will be asked which application to open it with. Open with the bitcoinuri binary.

Link added.

In general, though, I've found it better to first define what you want to do, then define the protocol to accomplish what you want to do. So, what do you want to do with the wallet? Obviously, first and foremost is to accept and spend coins.

The idea is that you can store the wallet anywhere and use it through a lightweight terminal, without connecting to the network. For example you could choose to store your coins at or your own server. Then you could use them with a Firefox extension or an Android UI.

I think it would be easiest to go with the current JSON-RPC stuff and automatically enable it, or at least add it to the options menu. Well planned is not done.

Any updates on this? I'd like to offer a 50BTC bounty for implementing bitcoin: URIs in the main client.

I believe that non-aggression, although prevalent, wouldn't be an absolute in a free market based law. Laws would be rules that people are generally ready to enforce by pointing guns at others (at their own cost), like prohibition of stealing or murder. People might be forcefully prevented from building a nuclear waste station in a residential area or organizing outdoor raves without compensation for noise. Or people might not be punished for preventing someone from committing a suicide, for example. People generally find these kinds of things perfectly reasonable and just.

ZayPay offers SMS and phonecall payments in 44 countries. They have an easy-to-use API. You could make a bitcoin selling service with a simple interface:

1. Choose your country (to show the available payment amounts and options)
2. Choose amount
3. Enter your Bitcoin address
4. Click the payment button provided by ZayPay.

This service would be a very easy and instant way to purchase small amounts of coins. It would probably be hugely popular. Feel free to implement Smiley
71  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Getting the Bitcoin Wikipedia article to the Good or Featured category on: April 11, 2011, 06:35:27 AM
What's the correct capitalization? Capitalized "Bitcoin" when talking about the system or software, and "bitcoin" when using as a unit of currency?

Ah, am receiving topic reply notifications too now. Maybe the emails were just delayed.

Still not receiving for PMs though.

Have you checked the option in settings?
73  Other / Off-topic / Re: Missing forum reply notification feature on: April 10, 2011, 04:12:18 PM
It was disabled:

It was actually a non-spammers list that didn't have our ip. I enabled the notifications now.

I think it's very important to have a good explanation of what Bitcoin is and how it works on, translated into many languages.  Bitcoin is still something very new and different and most people don't know much about it. While the wiki is nice for in-depth articles a short but correct overview (say 2..3 subpages: What it is, how to use it and fundamental protocol rules) will be helpful to users just discovering bitcoin. It shouldn't go too much into how it is used today, though. Just explain what you can do with it (i.e. no RPC documentation) and don't focus too much on the "official" client.

Translations are a good point.
75  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Redesign (mockups inside) on: April 08, 2011, 10:16:39 AM
I don't think we need a TL;DR description of Bitcoin at is a better introduction for newbies. should have a short description of the project, direct download links (icons for win, mac, linux) and links to other Bitcoin resources. The video can be thrown out to keep things simple, although it might be good to catch the visitor's attention.

tcatm, I like the page structure and footer style of your version. The logo and the yellow text background should be changed. Some pro could design the logo. Body_wrap looks cleaner without the stripes. We could try something lighter and more colorful instead of the dark gray theme. Trying #B0318E for the language bar background already made it look more fun Smiley Fooling around with Firebug is fun.
76  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Redesign (mockups inside) on: April 07, 2011, 10:18:17 AM

Thanks for contributing. It's browser-compatible, looks somewhat cleaner, doesn't need scrolling and supports translations. No video, but is linked anyway. The intro text could be shorter. What do you guys think?
77  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Redesign (mockups inside) on: April 06, 2011, 06:55:09 PM
I made it the front page. Now at least the front page is slashdot-proof Smiley

I'll still be fine-tuning the CSS. In the spirit of open source, everyone is welcome to improve the index.html in any way and I'll set it up if it's better. Add to github or wiki? Tongue
78  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Redesign (mockups inside) on: April 06, 2011, 02:53:26 PM
- use horizontal space, make two columns for that. Remember, scrolling bar is your enemy! Smiley
- put the video somewhere near the top

This better: ?
79  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Redesign (mockups inside) on: April 05, 2011, 09:29:28 PM
I made a proposal for the new page: Feel free to comment or edit.

Wanna setup a Bitcoin-Zaypay site anyone? SMS and phonecall payments. It would be a very easy way to buy small amounts of coins internationally.

MtGox's and Britcoin's establishment of legal status should make it easier for bigger business to accept coins. Spesmilo or other lightweight clients could be promoted for newbies. Bitcoin as a browser plugin would be golden, even if for MyBitcoin accounts only.
