Progress report?

Some small bug fixes and a news section for the front page. I'm in the process of getting enough bitcoins to get this running somewhere for quite some time. MtGox and Bitcoin-central are helping me with getting enough bitcoins (yay for Euro transfers), but it is getting relative expensive.

Yes, then I don't have to transfer the bitcoins that the clearing house earns to some other currency to keep it going. Plus it supports the bitcoin community economy.

Are you close enough to get all the bitcoin you needed to launch the site?

I've placed an order at bitcoin central (200 BTC @ 0.2450 EUR) yesterday, that would give me enough btc to get started (and have a bit of buffer). I was also waiting for some answers from the hoster about their service, but that's ok now.

If the bid does not get filled by Friday, I'll place an order for the service in the weekend. If it does get filled I'll place the order for the service earlier. With a bit of luck I'll have everything running by the end of January.

The bitcoin central market for Euro move rather slow, though.  Sad

Maybe you could ask noagendamarket for 200 BTC on the condition that it will be paid back once you buy enough bitcoin?

Yeah that's a problem atm. I also are short on time during the week, so if I would order it now (the 200 btc is extra buffer, in principal I have now enough to order the service) I wouldn't have time to set it up. I'm also a person who doesn't feel comfortable with borrowing something (this counts double for money).

Of course I can also do my part and raise the price on Bitcoin Central, giving more people incentives to sell there.

Just bought the bitcoins against a higher price.

I presume that the ads market is getting set up this weekend? Can't wait to begin using it to earn bitcoin. Cheesy

I'm afraid that that is a bit too soon. Currently setting up all the needed software, but I have to go to work today (bacteria don't stop growing over the weekend Wink ). There are also still some small things that need to be sorted out (last pieces of the payment code, etc., very important!).

I'll do my best to get it running this weekend, but no guarantees.

Most part is running now (still testing), but having problems handling the payments properly. So, not today unfortunately .

I hoped to announce it this evening, but encountered some bugs that I wanted to have fixed (and I had some time taken up by something else).
It's getting late here again (and last few days have also been late), so I move the announcement to tomorrow (I want to be online for some time after I announce it). Unless more problems show up.

Fixed some small visual bugs yesterday. In some cases more than 2 decimals would be displayed and from the bidding/website details people can now click the url of the website to see the website.

We have now one site that seems to generate quite some views (roughly 1 unique ip/3 minutes, currently I put down an ad there to point to the bitcoin website). With so many views I might want to start implementing stats soon I guess...

BioMike, what are the units of a bid? BTC/hr viewed?

When does viewing time stop counting? I don't want to pay if someone leaves it up all night. I would think a low maximum counting view time per person would be reasonable. Obviously 100 people seeing it for 5 minutes each is way better than 10 people seeing it for an hour each or one person leaving it up for 24 hours. Do you have some way of verifying that the ad is visible on the screen? Sometimes I open a page in a new tab and never see it because my browser crashes or I go to bed before I get around to it (I realize that I probably browse oddly). But that ad that I never see could get 12 hours of credit or more.

Anyway, even if all of that is done 'improperly' I can still bid like .0001BTC/hr right? And if I get enough traffic from it I don't care if I'm paying for a few overnighters.

"This website requires a minimum bid of 0.10000000149012"

I guess that should be 0.1? But why that limit? 4 cents an hour for views that might be sitting minimized seems high to me.

The 5% fee is very reasonable, but I think it would be better to charge only if a match is made between a site and an advertiser. Also I don't see how to get my remaining money back if I've changed my mind or can't win a bid.

Small things. "Unsufficient funds" should be "Insufficient funds". Also "size of bid" or "amount of bid" is more appropriate than "height of bid"

It works, I have an ad on Quezi. Will it tell me as my time is used up? Or disappear all at once?
