Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I was just thinking about how the strongest methods of escaping the government grasp is to setup phone service and wordpress blogs. I would like to join your team. I'm not a programmer or anything though, more of an idea man.

GOOOOOOOOOOO BITCOINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Edit: Oops. Just fixed a typo. It should be GO (like GO TEAM!) and not GOOB
Edit2: Just checked the dictionary and goob is not a word

This reminds me of people who post on forums that focus on homebrew game development, along the lines of "hey i have a great idea for this mmorpg we just need programmers and artists and servers and i wrote the story with my friend it took a whole week.  i will be managing this product just need people willing to help out it is a really good idea guys!  also i came up with a name for it."

Here is the real question: Why would anybody with the skills to do this help you?  You do not bring anything to the table, the project would be better off without you.  If you really wanted it to succeed, you would be happy to have someone who knows what they are doing run it, and just work at promoting them.  Not for any compensation, either.



Because I have family members that work at at&t and apple. I can get an unlimited amount of phones if these this works out. Your probably wondering why not sell them on ebay yah yah yah... but unlike you, Mr. Useless Troll, I have an idea and a dream Smiley


It *is* a good idea. People would probably love to buy prepaid phone credit or phones or whatever with BTC. I'm not sure someone who doesn't capitalize sentences or use apostrophes is quite qualified to manage a crack team of coders putting such a service together.

I know what's up with your secure certificate, since you host at DreamHost, and I used to work there and wrote their secure certificate billing system. You have secure hosting set up, but the "real" certificate you ordered probably hasn't yet been written up by the actual Certificate Authority (which isn't DreamHost). If the code I worked on still works, it should show up sometime in the next couple days and be automatically installed on your site. If it doesn't, don't hesitate to contact support.

If you actually want to sell cell phones for BTC, I would recommend you set up an OpenCart install then install and configure the MyBitcoin SCI plugin for OpenCart. That will give you a fully functional online shopping-cart-driven store, where you can set prices in dollars and have people pay in Bitcoin (sent to a MyBitcoin account), converted at the current exchange rate.

Once you have a functional site, you'll probably be in a much better position to hire developers.



Can you set this up? I do not have a computer other wise I would do this in wordpress. Ill give you 10-20% of all phones sales & 5% recurring billing

Wait, you are trying to set up a company to sell property that you know that your family has stolen from their employers, and you want us to help you commit this crime?

"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."

I am a troll because I gave you legitimate advice?

Look, your plan is full of holes.  Here are some actual problems you need to solve:

1) Who is going to provide phone service?  Are you contracting out another prepaid company, or is this just a hardware service?  Running a phone service provider is not trivial, and it takes an enormous amount of money.  Aside from that, you are subject to all manner of government regulation.  Why would people even WANT a Bitcoin phone service provider?  So that there is yet another central place that people can track their activity to?  What are you going to do when the government asks you to turn over all your call logs?  And if this is just a hardware site... Well, why exactly would people want to use it over a more untraceable, cheaper method?

2)  Apple sells iPhones off contract now, to the general public.  Your connections are not worth anything meaningful, much less the job of running this company.

3) You don't have a computer.

Like I said before, why are YOU the best person to run this?  That is not trolling, it is a question that any investor would ask you.  You do not even have a computer!  What you have are friends who work at phone stores, and that is really not much.
