Seems like its targeting people who want to give up the security of bitcoins for a piece of paper....even worse, since they give up their confidentiality to boot.

No open records, so we dont know if this is just a scam ponzi scheme. If Im to trust the statemt of not being a scam, point me to a thieves who say upfront that they are con artists. The very fact that its being said is suspicious....I mean who said it was a ponzi scheme?

Then there is that issue of being insured that was brought up. Whats to stop someone from just taking the bitcoins in your office? I dont want to hear about the solution of not being able to withdraw money(cold storage or the empty storage devices purporting to hold bitcoins).

For a while I had been thinking that you were running a mining pool too.  But when you say "miner fees", you mean transaction fees that flexcoin pays out when sending to non-flexcoin accounts.

The answer is yes.

However you're right about the mining thing,  initially we were looking at any way possible to pay the people that deposit their bitcoins at flexcoin and we thought mining would be profitable enough to pay people regular payments,  but the threshold went up so high that it doesn't make sense for us to do that at this time.

Greetings all,

First off, love the site, very clean and simple to use, looks great as well.

I know someone was talking about miner fees earlier in this thread, but I don't fully understand what that means, can you please explain it to me?

You pay a fee to withdraw bitcoins from flexcoin. 70% of that fee is redistributed among the users. 30% is used to pay for the transfer fees (aka miner fees) and to keep the service running.

Do you have an iPhone app, or a way I can pay with my iPhone without having to type in the address?  Like scan a q-code?

And the same as treasurewebdesigns.com, websitesuccess.co.uk, enlightenedwealthywomen.com, mccsystems.co.uk among many others.

A more personal look would be appealing, but I guess that comes with time...

it's completely tested with mobile Smiley  do this.. bookmark the https://bank.flexcoin.com as a homepage icon...  you'll see the flexcoin icon there!

it's easier than a q-code if sending to id.. literally just send to flexcoin ID president from your iphone,  i'll send your coin back if you want to test it.

transfers are instant and works over mobile devices (tested on Android and iPhones) ...

Ok, I see your idea here, you hope every merchant will have a flexcoin ID.  And it also benefits the consumer, because the transaction is free for them if the merchant has a flexcoin ID.

That's cool, I can see that.

So, then I just have two issues, one minor, one not.

* Not minor:  15 confirms before I can spend them?  6 is not good enough for you? For me to test your app as you suggested, I'd have to wait 3 HOURS, as I just sent some BTC to my Flexcoin account.

* Minor:  I can't access the FAQ or documentation from my account page.  The links are not there.

I think this can be a great service.  I realize you are in the early stages.  I wish you luck.

Minor : I will have the links put up,  programming guys want it as separate as possible from the WWW version of the site but I see your point and I will have that addressed.

Not Minor : I will agree with you that perhaps 15 was overboard,  we just learn from others experience,  and evidently what happened to mybitcoin was the lack of confirmations,  granted we might have went overboard but it was a security feature in our opinion,  what would be a reasonable number that won't allow for a backdoor like that?
