Ad supported software has it's place, but not on my hardware.  Only open source software qualifies for my bounty contribution.

"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."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

1740 BTC is not enough for you?

that's about $400... that's a measly amount for work like this that'd take time.

Sure, but people can reasonably add conditions to their bounties that require FOSS attributes.

Use my Trade Hill referral code: TH-R11519

Check out bitcoinity.org and Ripple.

Read the quote I was quoting. It was the person saying whether $400 isn't enough. Hint: it isn't, unless you want to do it & the $400 is a bonus. This is a perfectly doable task but would take quite a while to do to perfection (which personally if I'm taking people's money then I do want to). Grin

cdecker: I hate ads in Android apps, how about a paid client?
I see some interesting possibilities here. What if the app would transfer a small fraction of a bitcoin to Cdecker, once for every day in which the user made a transfer? Or perhaps, users could send, with the app, a certain amount to Cdecker and in doing so disable the ads?
Oh please no!
Automatically stealing a few cents per transaction would start the whole mess about the puddinpop cuda client again, don't worry I'll probably stick to opensourcing the core and make an ad based Frontend and give people the option to disable the ads by sending me a few coins :-)

My js-remote is fully working on Android and supports local transactions by displaying QR codes on the phone and scanning them with the camera. It's also possible to display QR codes on a computer and send Bitcoins to it from a phone.

Does this qualify for the bounty?

I like your solution (but didn't tested it on phone yet). Unfortunately current version is still unusable because nobody will open own bitcoind RPC to internet and send plain username/password over it. I don't know how difficult is to add SSL layer, but once this will be solved somehow, my 50BTC is yours.

SSL works in theory. In practice, there's either a bug in browsers or bitcoind that prevents a reliable connection. I hope to resolve that within the next days.

Great, then I send you the rest of my bounty.

Wait a second, I thought this is about a full implementation of Bitcoin on top of Android and not some remoting. I'm implementing the whole stack in Java for a native Bitcoin app.

Personally I prefer remote solution because I don't want to have my coins on mobile phone for security reasons. So handling wallet + QR codes are enough for me and I want to support this solution. This does not mean I won't pay you for full Android stack, too.

Good point, I'm using the Android BackupManager to save and restore the wallet once it's implemented, so keeping things on a phone wont be too risky, just restore and transfer to another account :-)

You can run bitcoind on the phone. This even makes your wallet compatible with the desktop version.

What about talking with the developer for this project to see about adding Bitcoin functionality to what he's got going on?

Feel free, but I doubt that they are comparable tech.

The most important thing to come out of this won't be an android bitcoin client but a (hopefully less opaque) reference implementation of the bitcoin protocol, from which a bunch of different clients could potentially be built.

I'm also working on a java bitcoin stack. Let a thousand flowers bloom.

You can just transfer a few bitcoins (as you see fit) to your phone wallet.
If your phone is stolen with saved credentials (which probably many will use) you're screwed even more

Interested in comparing notes,  I would love to see your approach to it :-)

tcatm's bitcoin-js-remote met all of my bounty conditions. I just paid him the full 800 BTC + 200 bonus for using QR codes.
