Hi everyone,

I've put up a tool for Bitcoin users to find each-other in the real world. This way we can trade Bitcoin locally, without needing to use through-the-mail or online services. The amount of information you give and the type is entirely up to you. The service is here:
http://tradebitcoin.com/

The original thread was on Trading.

UPDATE:
At the suggestion of AyKarsi, I've put up a feedback system.  If you get an idea for the site you can click the tab on the right and make a suggestion. Thanks AyKarsi!

UPDATE:
If you're interested in helping this project.

  • Please sign up! We have four continents and lots of people but we'd love to have more.
  • Let people know. Get the word out however you can. If you are on a Bitcoin services site and you don't see the site, please submit it.
  • Link to us. If you have a bitcoin website, please link to us. We have a 100% link-back policy. I'm putting up a Spend Bitcoin page for Bitcoin services. Just message me your site.
  • Donate. The project has never received a single donation. A mere 6ptc would pay for the hosting this month. Anything you can donate helps me justify my time to my wife. lol

At the moment there is no limitation on creating accounts. Please put some method of contact in your profile! Accounts with no contact method may be culled at some point.

So what do you guys think? Would you pay a listing fee? What other information would you like to see as part of the trader profile?

As it is currently designed, I would not use it at all, because it depends on enabling requests to a third party website which I do not necessarily trust.

I think it is a good idea.  I was just wondering earlier this evening how many Canadians were on here and now here's a way to find them.

I've signed up but I can't figure out how to search for members.  I'm using Firefox... maybe I'm not seeing some option because of this?

maxmind.com, I would guess.

You need to disable Adblock Plus.

wtf do I need to do with adblock to make the site work? I added the main site URL in a filter and did not check enabled. I guess I see the point in trying to force people to see ads, but I don't know if that is really a formula for success. I see no people on the map = fail. No chance in hell I would pay 5 BTC for this. You need to actually offer something of value first.

Ok, I researched this. The only information given to third party websites (Maxmind's GeoIP) is your I.P. address. This information is given out with every single request to every website you go to. Your I.P. address is in the server logs of every website you frequent, including the Bitcoin forum. A great way to fix this is using http://mullvad.net to hide it. They accept Bitcoin and they do a GREAT job.

The information you give to my site is entirely optional. As it says on the profile page, you can put in an address, intersection or latitude/longitude. You aren't required to use your real name, your home address or any personally identifying information. In fact, you can just put in a nickname, a Skype id and a lat/lon and you're in business. I don't know how much more anonymous I can make this. Thanks for trying it out error!

Hi! Thanks for trying out the site!

I love AdBlock! There are no ads on the site! At the moment it's 100% volunteer run. I use AdBlock Plus and Firefox 3.6 for development. I don't think it's an issue with AdBlock. Did you try zooming out on the map? The site just launched in Beta a few hours ago, so there are only 16 people signed up so far, it could be that nobody has signed up in your area. Type "Columbia, Missouri" in the search on the home page and click "Go" you should see me on the map. If not, there's probably an issue.

Works if I enable requests to maxmind in NoScript and RequestPolicy. Sad

I think I would have preferred to see it use the Geolocation API. (Howto)

I like the site. Is it possible to include a feature to communicate with other members using an internal messaging system. Skype,phone,etc is nice but I don't want to give that information out to just anyone immediately before talking to them online.

I agree with you completely, I wish I could've used that. It's the hated beast known as IE which prevented me from using it. I went with MaxMind because it works across browsers. The GeoIP part is just a convenience, it's not important to the operation of the site. I'll test it out and try and fix it so that if MaxMind is blocked with AdBlock then the site will work transparently. Thanks for testing it out. I really hope I can get it working for everybody.

Here's an idea,

Download the free maxmind database for IP2location, and just take the user's IP and do the lookup server side without using any maxmind JS includes.

I currently sign out to be able to see other users.
How Can I search and see other users while being logged in please?

Also, messages within the site would be good; or maybe a forwarding email address @tradebitcoin.com?

Thanks,
