Has anybody started work yet on a Bitcoin application, plugging into Facebook to facilitate btc transfer between Facebook friends and subtracting a small commission to the app's introducer's bitcoin address (which gets programmed into the app when it got passed on / referred to the friend)?  Where can you get hold of such an application?  As I would like to introduce a few of my friends and add my btc address to the destination address for commissions.

Can someone build such an application of Facebook's open platform?  There can even be a default commision% be built in for the developer on all transfers.  Wouldn't it be really useful and easy to use with widespread appeal?

I think it would be great...it might also make huge headlines when Facebook bans it because it is eating into their profits from Facebook credits...LOL!  Go for it!

Unfortunately my programming skills are lacking.  You do not know of any such existing app plugin on the open Facebook platform?  With regards to competition with Facebook credits - Facebook credits are for online games - not for transfer between friends, so it will be fulfilling in another need of Facebook users.  It will actually make Facebook much more usable to a wider audience - enabling Facebook for Paypal-like transfers between friends.  So maybe Facebook will actually embrace the even more traffic it will be enjoying from such a combination of technologies.  But this is all speculation, and what and if scenarios - ultimately if something has use with a mass appeal - it usually succeeds, if no mass appeal, it does not succeed.

I don't know of any such plugin, but I would be surprised if there weren't already a few people working on it.

This is a terrific idea for another bitcoin exchange.  While it eliminates the anonymity, it could serve as a good basis of trust between traders.

Typical joe/jane:  I can't wait for a facebook application that allows me to transfer to my friend with my blackberry with btc's to make up for my share of the bill at the restaurant.  The app writer, as well as the person who referred me to this convenient method to transfer btc's to my friend can take a small fee on the transaction - as well.  I'm not interested in running a client - because i don't even mine on my blackberry.  I just want to give to my friends sometimes, easily on facebook with no complicated addresses - just want to click on their facebook names please and add number of bitcoins!!!

Joe now likes Jane
Joe sent Jane 0.3 bitcoins
Jane poke Joe

It's probably like most other wallets where that is your deposit address they just generated and the funds (you've been given credit for .01BTC worth of them) are not allocated.

If I click on "go to App" does that add it to my account?  Or can I read up on it before it sucks my facebook account.

I'm not a big fan of Facebook apps, but I may do it for bitcoin...

Yep! The best part is, it's a faucet also.

Now, I said I've used it for a month, and that's true, but I know the developers and they have briefly gotten busy working on another project for the next few days, so don't be surprised if something happens that isn't fixed immediately.

This is one of my favorite apps of theirs though so I will stand by it regardless of what happens.

I continue with bitcoin-app.com because yougetcoin has some drawbacks.

The by far biggest one for me personally: The app asks for the permission to write literally anything they want to any wall in YOUR name. That is dangerous and absolutely not necessary. I like apps that only ask for the things they need as a minimum to work.

The second issue: You can only send coins to your friends on Facebook and to bitcoin addresses.

bitcoin-app.com allows to send coins to any Facebook member (you can search for them) or to bitcoin addresses as well.

But hey, try both and make your decision Wink

No, you didn't. You had no idea of YouGotCoin at all. If you would have known about it, you wouldn't have made yours so horribly designed and under developed. I think you're just desperately trying to play catchup (hence the spam and FUD).

The by far biggest one: The app asks for the permission to write literally anything they want to any wall in YOUR name. That is incredible and absolutely not necessary. I like apps that only ask for the things they need as a minimum to work.
In light of your obvious handicapped state, I recommend reading the following slowly since it's the second time I had to repeat it to you:

When you send coins to a facebook user that has not added the YouGotCoin app yet, it will send them a message on their wall letting them know they can collect the bitcoins.

Kind of a no-brainer. Your app does exactly the same thing, except in a much uglier interface -outside- of facebook -- so inconvenient. Get a clue. Stop defending your shitty interface and start making it better. Earn some respect.

The second issue: You can only send coins to your friends on Facebook.

Wrong. You can send to your friends or any bitcoin address.

bitcoin-app.com allows to send coins to any Facebook member.
Wrong. You cannot send anything to anyone that you do not know. Are you new to the basic privacy features in facebook or something?


Is this the best you can do? FUD and spam?

How do the apps work? Do they both hold onto all the private keys to all the addresses? Or do something like blockchain.info/solidcoin?

It would be cool if somehow they used a password to generate the keys and used the password to re-generate the keys to sign a tx message so not even the facebook app could run with all the BTC.

bitcoin-app.com uses the original bitcoin client and no special tricks.

Sounds like a nice idea bitlotto. But actually the whole authentication procedure is entirely handled by Facebook and I have no access to the passwords or their hashes.

I wouldn't trust a closed source application that relies upon a proprietary platform to handle bitcoin. Especially a platform obsessed with acquiring as much personal information as possible.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

Yougotcoin app on facebook is a scam...

*image*

From the amount of times I've seen people call things scams in this community, I think scam has lost its meaning..

No, it's not a scam. The 3rd party hosted and backed up cloud wallet provider transitioned their infrastructure, and totally Fubar'd on the uptime. The application itself was having difficulty for a few hours in connecting to the main wallet, and we're adding a hot standby in case it happens in the future.

I should also mention I really was surprised to see that the application already has over 120 users now.

Wigglyuk: I'm sorry the application was temporary non-functional, and I worked to remedy it as quickly as possible. I assure you that You Got Coin is not a scam, and I'd further like to say that we never intended for You Got Coin to be anyone's main wallet, but instead a simple way to send Bitcoin to your Facebook friends, and as a backup for small amounts of easily accessible Bitcoin.

Regards,
Jonathan

[EDIT] The error message you see "aww" has been replaced with actual debugging information. One of the developers apparently forgot to remove that silly bug message from final code.

By an error or your own modification of the page's contents, it is not important why the screen shot shows a negative balance. What is important is that you already spent your Bitcoin balance before lying about the app being a scam.

Since Trudi has already shown that spamming and deception are how he gets people to try his app, it would not surprise me in the slightest if you were a friend or sockpuppet trying to make YouGotCoin look bad.

I'll be watching you both from this point on.

Yougotcoin app on facebook is a scam...


Am I the only one who laughed at the idea of somebody hacking a Bitcoin account for .039 Bitcents then leaving an "awe" message?

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

Yougotcoin app on facebook is a scam...

*image*

From the amount of times I've seen people call things scams in this community, I think scam has lost its meaning..

No, it's not a scam. The 3rd party hosted and backed up cloud wallet provider transitioned their infrastructure, and totally Fubar'd on the uptime. The application itself was having difficulty for a few hours in connecting to the main wallet, and we're adding a hot standby in case it happens in the future.

I should also mention I really was surprised to see that the application already has over 120 users now.

Wigglyuk: I'm sorry the application was temporary non-functional, and I worked to remedy it as quickly as possible. I assure you that You Got Coin is not a scam, and I'd further like to say that we never intended for You Got Coin to be anyone's main wallet, but instead a simple way to send Bitcoin to your Facebook friends, and as a backup for small amounts of easily accessible Bitcoin.

Regards,
Jonathan

[EDIT] The error message you see "aww" has been replaced with actual debugging information. One of the developers apparently forgot to remove that silly bug message from final code.

I seem to have jump the gun on this one, my balanced returned after a day and my balance was back to normal. The negitive balance did frieghten me though and I see that it has happened again today but returned within a few hours. I will confirm that YouGotCoin App on Facebook is NOT a scam. Sorry for the Libel.

Seems like you're the one scamming.

I guess you could say I'm scamming the multiple Free bitcents-a-day site by farming a steady flow of bitcents per month... but I did not send my .2 accumulation of bitcents anywhere, it should be in the YouGotCoin app, the second I saw it was missing I cried wolf; again I apologize for the Libel.

Aside from the occasional negatie balances, YouGotCoin is a solid app and is likely to convert the facebook kin into bitcoin users.

Facebook app "Got Coin" is an excellent app especially as it's a faucet as well.  I got one girl interested in it and now she got all her mates using the app and bitcoin for the first time.  It's a very good way to spread the concept of bitcoin to new users as you can send BTC to any of your FB friends for free.  It should be developed more so you can use it as your main wallet and the app should have its own thread.

gnah!

a facebook wallet is cool cause it allows free transactions between facebook users outside the blockchain. Consequently your transactions will not show up in blockexplorer "as expected" but your depositing address will be "charged at random". This is built into bitcoind behaviour and Mathew you should know by now that that is not a sign of scam.

Sending to Facebook IDs is also very convenient for users as they see their friend's face when sending.

Fees should only apply when sending to a bitcoin address. (My concern was that if I grant every user to send single Satoshis to friends, these friends will scream "SCAM" when I charge them 1000000Satoshi for sending their belongings out.)

I have a facebook app for bitcoin, too but did not dare to expose it to a wider audience. It's simple. Just a frontend to bitcoind with the facebook uid for the account. super slow but it works.

https://bitcoin-app.com/ is UUUGLY as hell.

https://apps.facebook.com/yougotcoin/ is broken (plain white).

I will not use a hosted wallet where I don't trust the ones standing behind it. Ultimately I see it the job of some exchange to launch such an app. It can be done in one week of work to get far better than bitcoin-app. I would see it as a valuable investment in the future of bitcoin. Yes, facebook will ban it despite the fact it is not against anything I found in their TOS. The one doing the app should have a concept of continuing operations outside of facebook. Well done, this app could reach millions in a month and we could document how facebook destroyed a success story without a good reason and offer the more secure alternatives to the doubled user base.

@Matthew. Hmmm. that was like 20 years ago. I just don't remember. I would hate to be tested if the pilot had a heart attack. But maybe I could land a 152 and live. Later I spent a lot of time jumping out of planes, so who needs landing skilz.  Smiley

I want to start doing wingsuit flying as soon as feasible. If I had to choose a way to die, that'd be it.
