I am thinking of offering a Bitcoin related service and would like get an idea of whether it may be desirable or viable to Bitcoin users. Thank you for responding to this poll.

That may be part of the service offering. However, the main purpose of the polls is to establish a general usage pattern of the target user group so that any service offered would be relevant. As this is an open poll, I believe some of the questions I may ask would be useful to other developers and service providers.

As such, I hope that there would be more users giving their input on the questions I am and would be raising.

and the question is?

Whether Bitcoin users routinely check emails on their mobile devices. The proportion would influence any design decisions for a given service.

As an example, if you were running a website that sells time sensitive products, perhaps one which expires within days for whatsoever reasons, it would be ideal to be able to notify your buyer as soon as possible. If the majority of your customers are not in the habit of checking their emails on the move, it may not be the ideal mode of notification. So you may have to explore other methods such as text messages, or perhaps investing in a mobile application that does the notification for your client although that may not be cost effective for most start-ups.

If you can implement push notifications through multiple brands of devices, that would be your best rout.

I already have it and don't need to pay for a new service. Good luck.

Feel like investing in a Miner?:

The email notification service was just a hypothetical scenario detailing how responses to my poll question may influence the design decisions for a service. It is definitely unrelated to the actual service which I originally had in mind.

There is nothing specific in mind yet as I am still studying how Bitcoin works and what services are already available. However, it definitely is not a paid email service Smiley

These questions are generic and not linked to any specific idea in order to reflect the existing preference and habits of the potential users. Due to this, the poll results are also applicable for any developers who are planning their own projects. In this way, I hope I am also contributing to the community and not merely asking questions for the benefits of my own plans.
