Right now you have to refresh manually.

firefox probably has an extension.
in opera just right click, select reload every, and choose custom time to auto refresh.
IE.. i just don't care.. and firefox i am just guessing. opera for the win.

Wonderful idea. I like the fun aspect of it.

I thought of something similar a while back. Might take a fair bit of coding though. It might be called The Mandelpot. It's like a treasure hunt for pots of gold (acctualy bitcoin prizes), randomly distibuted through an online rendering of the mandelbrot set. You would have to zoom in a bit to find the smaller bitcoin 'pots of gold' and explore the set even more carefully to find biger prizes. The colective prize money would replaced regularly as it is won, but randomly split so that the smaller chunks appear closer to 1:1 scale (say at a minimum of 100:1 for 100 satoshis), while a larger chunk would be calculated to be hiden deeper (say 1,000,000:1 for a 0.1 bitcoin prize). You can explore the set for as long as you please, but when you login you agree to have your GPU/CPU harvested for some machine cycles to generate bitcoin. So it's actualy a casual bitcoin mining farm also. While you are exploring you might notice various sponsorship ads swimming into view amidst the sweeping tendrills of the mandelbrot set. Also some of the pots might have a generous vouchers of genuine discount/gifts/introductory offers from the sponsors, rather than straight out bitcoin prizes.

I think this could be made so that bots have no better chance of finding the pots than the humans, but as long as they are there, they too have to contribute machine cycles to play, so they would contribute to the prize pool as much as (or more than) they are harvesting from it. The more hashing power you have the more quickly you can zoom, scroll, render and such, so it should possible to ballance the odds if done properly.

If somebody wants to code this up, I'd likely to be quite willing to put a reasonable sum of bitcoin in to help launch it. What would the coding for something like that be worth?

Dude... We did! But it was in "De Bitcoin Code" (DBE).

Today I notice the bitcoinflower sponsor is ibfx  'a provider of online forex trading services'

I'm curious.. did this advertiser specifically choose to advertise on the bitcoinflower.com site, or are you just using some ad system so that this mob just happened to land a spot here?

I noticed referral ID in this ad, so possible that flower's admin haven't found advertiser and posted reflink.

Another concern is Google Ads. When I opened my service Dailybitcoins.org I have asked at Google Ads forum about suitability of my site for this program. They answered that accepted are only websites with original text content and Dailybitcoins.org does not qualify. Although virtually I can place Google Ads, they could suspend my account and forfeit funds at any time. Bitcoinflower.com is very similar to my site (identical idea, just different design) so probably its admin will have big trouble with receiving funds from Google.

Yes, I placed Google Adsense and will leave it running for another 2 days. This is to get a rough feeling on how much revenue could be made with non-bitcoin ads.
Ad placement will get back to bitcoin-related ads on 24th of August and price will be i bitcoin for 24 hours as intended in the beginning.

Don't forget that on average there are around 50 different people on the site – all watching the bitcoin. And it does not take more than a couple of seconds to enter your bitcoin address and solve the captcha if you're fast.

Although I think that I got a quite good solutions for preventing bot traffic I will have a look at this topic again.

it is a neat idea but i will definitely not use it anymore. the reward versus the time spent just
does not make sense to me personally. i also went through, "hey there is a bitcoin" CLICK CLICK CLICK...
hm.. someone beat me. That is not something that seems fun to repeat over and over again.

Isnt that flawed in the sense that once a bot clicks it the "reward" is locked down for 2mins until the bot operater comes back and solves the captcha?

Currently prize size is being displayed as picture, so bots aren't more our concern.
