New version! Added French, Italian, Russian, Czech, Croatian, Latvian, Dutch and Finnish. Thanks again to all translators! If you wanna link directly to a translated version, use this syntax: (replace "sv" with your language code).

For the next version (preview here) I'll make the private part of the page cleaner and with clearer warnings. But it also means that I need a few more strings translated in all languages, so anyone who wants to help, please quote this message and replace the following in your language.

"privatekeywarning" : "CAUTION! Keep this private! Anyone who has this key can spend your money!"
"checkingbalancetitle" : "How do I check my balance?",
"checkingbalancetext" : "To see the balance of your address, search for it on <a href=''></a> (the address is the one on the upper part of the print out, <b>don't</b> confuse it with the private key!). You can copy-paste it from here and bookmark the result page for easy access later.",

You can be creative with the warning text, just don't make it much longer than the English one as I want it to fit on one line. - Forum, nyheter och information på svenska! (Forum, news and information in Swedish)

Great site!  I think we have very similar tastes and sensibilities.  I've also created a free, minimal tool that people can use to accept bitcoins.  Mine is geared more towards merchants who would run it on an electronic device to accept payments in a store or restaurant.  The page does currency conversion and monitors for transactions at a provided address by listening to a websocket from  When a transaction is detected the page displays a notification in real time so the merchant can know that payment was received.

The URL parameters are configurable so you can enter any receiving address.  You can use a form to configure other parameters: or save the parameters to a persistent URL by creating a username and password:

The page is all done in javascript but the persistence code was done with NodeJS.  The code is lumped together with the rest of my website but I'm planning to extract it into a standalone tool and release it soon.  For now it's available here:

I'd be interested to hear your feedback!

Looks great, now I just need to keep an eye on it when I expect an incoming payment.

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.
