I have one complaint. When you browse the site with your mobile phone, half the screen is covered with the instructions on the bottom. It would be nice to have a button to hide them. Or even better, to have them hidden by default, with a button to show them.
Please open a ticket here:

Thank you!

It's the bitcoin incentive that makes the "blockchain" technology work, stupid.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

LocalBitcoins provides a list of country codes based on their user location, we use this list to get the codes.

Is this for the "buy online" ads on localbitcoins.com too or just the cash deal ads?

Also, how does this tie in with:

Can a private person share contacts for local bitcoin exchange activity?

Basically you have to understand that this is a map. When I find something on a map I expect it to be exactly there and if I don't I am disappointed. People move, buildings usually not.

IMHO, this is cluttering the map.

Online, unfortunately. I'm discussing with LocalBitcoins folks, but until they have a reasonable API for Local Ads, I can't do much.

I removed LocalBitcoins data points until:
a) LocalBitcoins has full API for querying local ads (at least like they have for online ads)
b) I implement hiding/showing of point layers by their type (this should be fairly trivial)

How about a "Submit Change" link or button. You could then have a box show up where they pick something is out of date or needs to be added. If something needs to be added they just fill in the box and submit it. It could then automatically be posted in this thread where anyone with the skills could edit it if needed. If anyone has actioned the item they just reply to the post with "Done".

One of the aims of this project is to teach people how to use OpenStreetMap. So no, this is not planned at the moment.

But what about the mom and pop store who accepts Bitcoin and has no interest or time in learning it? How do they get their store listed?

She asks her son/daughter who has interest and time. Smiley

or a forum member Wink

I think going that route will limit the success of coinmap Sad

Is there any easy way (or any way at all) to chart the change in the global total of places (currently 587)?

 I'd love to know how it has changed since April and what the trend is.

Not yet. Personally I'm not very fond of idea, because this trend doesn't mean anything.

BRILLIANT IDEA.. however I can't get the listings to show... have followed the instructions, tried listing them with payment:bitcoin, and payment:bitcoin=yes, neither show. Are there any written detailed instructions to follow?


Sorted, now have double ups that I'm deleting. Didn't realise I had to enter yes in the second column.

Can you give us a link to your element, please? Something like this: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/2342088989

Thank you!

It's updated every hour. Have you waited long enough?

Recently your site became very laggy. I would say it's getting pretty much useless and I think it would be important to make it usable again, as it's recommended for newbies a lot of times on various forums.

Do you still actively develop it? I would donate some BTC if you do.

Yes I do. Coincidentally, I fixed lags yesterday. Press Ctrl+F5 to reload all the scripts. Did it fix the problem?

I would donate some BTC if you do.

Donation address is in the box on the website: 1BnpG4jddgNXsQBQjsU8BS3F1Ubm9XgVah Thanks!
