One of the two 800BTC bounties was paid months ago. I have no idea of the status of the other, which is why I haven't moved forward on this.

What is the status now?

Has anyone thought of embedding bitcoinj ( http://code.google.com/p/bitcoinj/ ) in a full Android Bitcoin client?

Of course generation does not seem to make much sense on devices with limited computing power.

The problem is that the standard way the Bitcoin does things overwhelms Android.   Not enough memory or data storage, too much storage access.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

oh i wish i had seen this pledge earlier Smiley

is there any site that collects bounties with an escrow service? On the one hand I see how generous many BTC people are but on the other hand with a 2 or 3 man month effort one would like to be sure to get payed in case one provides the best solution.
Also I see BTC is just perfect for such a bounty service. I saw pledge site for open source development fail but I'm sure if the pledges were charged for real, things might have gone differently.

Is there a spec list to work against? Or just has to work on Android solely, ie no cloud/remote?

Now we have two:

BitPay (based on InstaWallet)

BitPay involves trusting InstaWallet.
You missed to mention RPC-clients like http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/

Is the above mentioned Bitcoin-android already stable? http://code.google.com/p/bitcoin-wallet/ workds on BitcoinJ, too.

Being eligible for the bounty would obviously be nice.  Thanks!

Actually bitcoinandroid is not the first standalone wallet.

For example, just the day after BitcoinJ was released, I released the first version of Bitcoin Wallet

https://market.android.com/details?id=de.schildbach.wallet

Never got any piece of the bounty, though... )-:

bitcoin wallet keeps eating wallet files and is not a functional wallet yet. unfortunately that is true for the other app as far as i read here on the forum. some guy got the same issue with persistent crashes at startup that i know too well from bitcoin wallet.

i hope that bitcoin wallet stays as honest as it was and sticks with testnet for the time being as i so far lost all my test coins i used to show it to my friends. if the trouble is due to bitcoinJ@android then bitcoin wallet was the first to receive a reward in my eyes but bitcoinJ deserves its share as well once the issues are solved.

I installed this app today and I'm quite convinced it deserves at least a major piece of the bounty promised. Whatever y'all imagined when you promised to pay some BTC: This is it!

To be honest, my 20 BTC bounty hasn't been paid yet. Couldn't get around testing those apps yet, and I often see reviews with coins disappearing.

If this works out, I guess I should pay half of it to the main BitcoinJ developer, he really made this possible.

Then... mh, I'll try the Bitcoin Wallet app. The other one practically admitted sending my wallet to Google unencrypted -- I don't know whether to call it theft or a bad joke. Tongue


Any experiences with the Wallet app? Has anyone lost coins using it, or faced any other problems? I'll fool around with it a bit as soon as I find some time for it.

I don't want to pay bounty to a program that just leaks or steals the coins in the end, so I'm taking my time watching first.

The Bitcoin Client I'm developing is aimed to be cross-platform with Android being one of the supported platforms from the get-go.

I'm not sure if it's up to your standards or needs, but if you think that it's something you'd like see developed seriously please consider donating/investing in the project.

If you don't trust Bitcoin Wallet, you can try the Testnet version first. Or try with only small values.

And yes, there are known problems. It will take some time to get them ironed out.

If you should have troubles with "stuck" coins, I can help you out.

Cheers,

Andreas

I like this bounties escrow service idea.
Is anyone working on it?

2 different forms of free-money: Freicoin (free of basic interest because it's perishable), Mutual credit (no interest because it's abundant)

Have a look at

Very interesting outlook for the future, regarding your question especially Example 3 (assurance contracts).

The bitcoin wallet from Andreas Schildbach has been around for months now. We use it at POS in our business every day. Andreas gives immediate support and keeps on developing updates and putting in more functionality over time. No coin got ever lost and every payment made has always arrived.

If anyone deserves to get the bounty this thread is all about, it's him. I have personally donated btc to him for creating this sftware and releasing it open source.

What's the story with all you guys offering btc here for that app, was that all hot air and you are now sitting back home smiling because you got the app for free?

No offense to yourself, nor to Andreas; but his app never met my own bounty requirements.  I've conversed with him about this in the past via email, and have received some interest in finishing those requirements; but apparently mine are too few to be of significant interest.
