We have looked into coinbase, but not yet at Blockchain. Would you suggest one over another?

I've written backends using the BlockChain api and it's quite simple and has good documentation.

We think we are going to go with Blockchain.

GigaDice and Vaio127, if you would be interested in getting 5 free bids send us an email at support(at)2kbid.com with whatever username you decide to create and we will add 5 free bids to each of your accounts.

We should be up and running within a week,
Hope to see you all bidding Wink

Yes, we are the first penny auction site that we know of that will be accepting bitcoin. As to the other comment, scammers are a dime a dozen, and nothing we say can prove we are otherwise until we have feedback and a review up. You can always try your luck out with the free bids from signing up.

Thanks  Grin

Will do, we just don't want to launch the site until we have bitcoin implemented. We are also thinking about cosmetically improving the site, but its more important to just have a site that functions as its supposed to Wink
