Hey, though there are some shorteners around, i made my own with these cool features:

- easy to remind URL: btcENco.de (that's "btc encode", just in case  Wink)

- gives you (1) a short URL (2) a token to decode on the site and (3) a qr-code

- great privacy with nothing stored than the provided address and the generated token

- no ads, no Google Analytics

- lightweight, great for mobile devices

Just head over to btcENco.de


added (June 08, 2011):

- second QR code (now there's one with the address and one with the short URL)

- a set of userbars (5 by now, more to come)

- Bitcoin address already in db will always produce the same link (no duplicate entries anymore)


added (June 10, 2011):

- an actually working address validation (kudos to theymos for http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=1026.msg184508#msg184508  Grin)

- userbar #6


added (June 24, 2011):

- some css

- social media buttons


added (June 30, 2011):

- even more css

- google +1 (still not analytics!)


added (July 06, 2011):

- integrated a check via blockexplorer.com for decoded addresses


added (July 08, 2011):

- a demo button

Cool!  How about an option to use a chosen string instead of a random encoding?

And why not use the shortened version of your own address in your sig and on the site?

That's a good idea, i'll implement that!

I made this account before the script was done Grin But changed it by now...

I like your idea, maybe this could be collaborated with my project http://btcmsg.com
Or you can steal my idea, but that would not be nice :-)

Bitcoins are pretty cool

Hey, thx for the pm! And a truly great idea (but i'm not gonna steal it, no worry Grin)

I added a link in the encoding results, with a query already so you could use it to pre-fill the form. Have a look!

Added a demo button to show what the site does without the need to enter a btc-add yourself

Due to little demand, this project will be discontinued. Site will shut down during August.
