Has blockchain.info wallet been around longer?
I'm assuming you're asking because you want to know if you can trust blockchain.info's web wallet service.
The beauty of it, as I understand it, is that you don't need to trust them.
All they have is an encrypted backup of your wallet, your clear text private keys only live inside your browser.
Even if they disappear you can still get access to you coins via a third party piece of software or from the paper backups that you can make.



if you saved those numbers and password they give u?
The password you chose yourself, and yes you need to remember it.

Their Import/Export page lets you print out, or export clear text or encrypted backups of your wallet with all the information you need to access you coins from other clients if you wish to.

MyBitcoin was also providing a shopping cart API for e-shops. Was it the first provider of this kind of service?
As far as I remember, Tom Williams said that site was hacked through the hole in shopping cart API.

I dont think he had a forum account. Although a user by the name of "TheMadhatter" used to pimp their service out all the time.

I landed in this country with $2.50 in cash and $1 million in hopes, and those hopes never left me.

Having forgot about this fiasco, I wrote a simple iOS app called myBitcoins to keep track of my offline addresses.  Oops Smiley

Anyhow, it's on the AppStore for a buck (see sig).

Hardfork aren't that hard.

I knew he didn't have a forum account. Also, Satoshi and Bruce Wagner used to "pimp" said service.
