I was thinking maybe would be a nice feature, sometimes.
Every time you joined such IRC chat room you would have to send bitcoins and if you were kicked and wanted to enter the room again you would have to pay again. And that money would be shared to all users in the chat room or to the channel ops.
What do you think?

Would be great there was a torrent file of all referenced materials of the paper: "How to Build Time-Lock Encryption" by Tibor Jager. And having its magnet link published on bitcoin blockchain!

Im sure coding a bot for this would be simple enough

Essentially, you could run a bitcoin client on the same server as the bot, have it generate an address and attach it to each nick, as soon as the client receives the BTC, the bot would know what to do.

You could probably set up a bounty for someone to build this for you

Maybe the fee should change according to the number of users on that room.
The more users it had, the higher the fee.
It could better suit integer division.

Eh, this idea would need lots of refinement. You'd risk turning your IRC chatroom into a pyramid scheme if the users got any part of the "fees".   Alternatively, you could try to turn your IRC room into some sort of premium chat, but who would want to pay when there are tons of other ones for free?

It's doable within the RFC; the problem would be getting users to join. Besides, IRC isn't SnapChat (which isn't secure either...), and it's even easier to write a bot which echoes the contents of one channel into another.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

Your talking about doing an IRC server, which would take forever (I know from experience tried to write one for a project it took forever) but I think the dude just wants to see if it can be done for fun.

No no, just a quick socket bot. People could join a lobby channel, receive an address from the bot (who happens to be opped in the pay-per-entrance channel), and once the bot receives payment, he lets the person in. Alternatively, the channel could be +v, and you have to pay for +v status. Also, it could be done in such a way that you pay per minute, rather than per entrance. Plenty of ways to do it. I personally like the +v idea; it sets a monetary incentive to not spam.
