Hey,

In the future there will be many different online bitcoin providers holding your money in a virtual wallet.dat online.

Many websites will want to accept bitcoin payments from a 'Tip Jar' button that requires minimal effort to click if you're logged in through OpenID.

The many content providers will need to agree on a method for allowing tipping, together with the online bitcoin services.

----
- Sign up to mybitcoin.com or whatever wallet service using an OpenID.
- Viewing video on dansblog.org. You like that.
- Click Tip Jar first time.
- OpenID sign up screen.
- dansblog.org contacts distributed database (like DNS) to lookup your wallet provider.
- dansblog.org redirects you to https://mybitcoin.com/mywallet.php?send=5&address=dsjsdjksdjksdjdsk23iuweewkc
- mybitcoin.com saves redirect header (who redirected). Displays confirmation page.
- You click OK
- Redirects back to previously viewing webpage.

Now I propose that we all decide on the distributed database part, so that we can start adding in wallet providers and provide an easy way to provide consistent service between many different services.

The returned URL would have an option for the amount to send and the address to send to.

What do you think? It'd be good to write a spec and put it out there. Even if it isn't written yet, there would be a definitive document that we point people to and say 'this is how it's done. comply with the standard.'

dansblog.org and felixsweb.org could both use different databases but they both sync with each other.

It might prove helpful, but it's not neccesary that providers agree on an API.  A one click bitcoin button is being worked on that would import a bitcoin address directly into your bitcoin client currently.  If the providers want to have the same functionality, they can develop a plug-in of some kind that simply redirects the user to log-in to their account and import the bitcoin address.

"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'

Why do we all need to use the same one? Won't people use the same one if one is best? I don't get what there is to do here besides let things take their course.

It makes things easier to target if there is no redundancy. The best practice will win in the end...well maybe not . Look what happened with betamax and vhs . Smiley
