Hi!
Just wanted to inform everyone that I have test-launched a "hit" in "mechanical turk" which will pay dollars for a bitcoin.

For those who don't know what mechanical turk is:

It's an amazon web-service that allows requesters to offer tasks (called 'hits') to workers for a fee. The task can be anything - classifying images, writing essays, normalizing data - or sending bitcoins!

Payment by the requester happens when the requester approves the worker's submitted task. I will approve the task if I receive a bitcoin, and the worker account will be credited with 7 dollars. (I know, I'm being cheap).

So if anyone is interested, head over, get a worker account at www.mturk.com, search hits by "Bitcoin", send me a bitcoin, and receive payment. All through amazon!

Greetings,

Waschtel.

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

this is a rather interesting idea...i've known about mechanical turk for a while, but this is a good way to get your bitcoins converted directly into amazon.com credit....

I'm guessing this didn't work out?
