As far as I understand Open Transactions is not directly Bitcoin related?

Well you probably don't understand it very much.

If you field Multibit, you should also do so with the other wallets, like armory, electrum, etc.

I also would like to see blockviewer in the ring.

Can I nominate myself?  I'm disappointed to see Armory is left off the list, given that it is the only solution out there that provides cold storage in a user-friendly way.  And given the astounding number of compromises that could've been avoided by using cold storage, I think highlighting the fact that cold storage is available with an easy-to-use interface would be extremely valuable to the community.

And it's not like that's the only benefit of Armory.  One-time paper backups (because wallets are deterministic) is another dramatic improvement over Bitcoin-Qt, even though it's not unique to Armory.  And of course there is key importing and sweeping, message signing, GPU-resistant wallet encryption, URL-handling, and watching-only wallets.

While Armory is technically still "alpha", it's due to user interface and setup issues, not security or stability.  I know a few users that keep 1000+ BTC in Armory because it has demonstrated extreme reliability and so far no one has ever lost coins using it.  Not to mention, BitcoinOPX was using it for their financial trading platform (though, they are gone, now).  Armory should be "beta" within a couple weeks, even though most users already treat it as beta+.

I think Armory deserves nomination too.

I agree that Armory and OT should be on the list.  

OT may not be limited to Bitcoin transactions but I see it as becoming very important for the Bitcoin economy.

/edit  Namecoin may have that potential as well as OT but I haven't seen much happening with it lately.

Oh, I just realized this is "project of the month".  I won't un-nominate myself, but I think it makes more sense for Armory to be nominated when it actually goes Beta... probably next month.

By that logic, you should probably state that only projects you understand as a further criteria on the front page then.

cbitcoin now has a website: http://cbitcoin.com/

So it would be good if that was included alongside an updated description for the vote.  Wink

ok, I will put it up and let everyone decide.

as much as I am into Namecoin (see sig) I think it needs to wait for the next big thing.

I contacted thallium205 and it turns out blockviewer is public and nonprofit. Glad to have blockviewer as the next nominee.

Blockviewer is a strong argument to use "coin control". Sounds like thallium is going to pull more info out of the chain and even make it pretty. Wink

There are definitely some major changes coming - basically its going to look completely different.  I also ran out of space on my build server so its really delayed at the moment too - I feel its just really not yet polished enough for all this attention but oh well.  Thanks for nominating it!

You've omitted the Open-Transactions project page link in your OP for some reason ...

Well I have an updated description: https://github.com/MatthewLM/cbitcoin/

cbitcoin is a bitcoin library written in standard C99. It is currently in alpha-stage and should only be used experimentally. The purpose of the library is to make it easier for developers to create bitcoin applications and the library should be versatile enough to be used in many bitcoin projects. It is not a client library, rather it provides the basic building blocks of the bitcoin protocol.

The features includes:

Bitcoin message structures including serailisation and deserialisation functions.
A bitcoin script interpreter.
Functions for building and verifying merkle trees.
Basic functions which can be used in various validation models (full nodes, pruning nodes, SPV nodes or whatever).
Asynchronous networking code whcih provides a simple interface to the bitcoin network for sending and receiving messages.
A network address manager
Automatic bitcoin handshakes.
Automatic peer discovery.
Automatic pings.
Base-58 bitcoin address encoding.
Simple reference counting memory management.
Doxygen documentation and well-documented source code.
Purely standard C99 with weakly linked function prototypes for cryptography, PRNG and network dependencies.
Implementations of the dependencies using libevent and openssl.

So it is a purposeful omission?

If you don't want Open-Transactions on the list, leave it off, it is your contest after all. But please don't be petty about it, it is beneath you Phelix.

Well I don't know how relevant Open Transactions is yet... We still need to develop it to a more stable state.
However if any developers want to come and sail out onto the brave new waters of Open Transactions.  You are welcome to hang out in #opentransactions on Freenode.net

aka... it would be really cool to have some more developers! Smiley  Our API is coming along leaps and bounds.  Cheesy Cheesy

One off NP-Hard.

To be the Bitcoin Project of the Month it does not have to be finished. BPM is meant to draw attention to interesting projects with potential to help realize them.   Smiley
