If I want to sell digital downloads on my Wordpress blog how do I do that using the Blockchain wallet? I don't want to use a third party service like Biypay I want to do it all myself. Basically I need it to where when someone clicks buy now it sends the Bitcoins to my wallet and once the amount is confirmed they will either get an email link or it download now link on my web site

I had this problem many times. I emailed piuk and reported here... but no response so far. Several other users reported the same problem.

What might help:
1. check server time http://blockchain.info/time
2. adjust phone time to match server time
3. try your luck : )

I do this in case i get error for the first two attempts. It works just fine for me.


This is very annoying. You have to counter-check every time as the server time drifts away so fast.

Has the admin ever heard of ntp?  Huh

Here is a feature that I think would be awesome:

What: First, a little background: From the standard web page at Blockchain.info one can search an address and view the balance and payment status. The QR code is also displayed and a "request payment" button is available. Problem: you can only enter a bitcoin amount. Can you please add the option to enter a currency amount?

Why: Scenario: Let's say I have a restaurant and I would like my servers to have my bitcoin address (via the Blockchain.info URL described above) bookmarked on their smart phone. When a customer offers to pay in bitcoin the server simply pulls out her smart phone, opens the bookmarked page and clicks on "request payment". She enters the total amount of the bill and tip and generates the QR code. She then hands it to the customer and the payment is completed. She can verify the payment by seeing the transaction right there on her phone and the deal is done.

Another Reason: I don't want my servers accessing my wallet just to generate payment requests and I may not want to use the BitPay or Coinbase solutions. I might prefer to have my own wallet and then I simply provide a payment address via a simple bookmark for my servers using Blockchain.info.

All bitcoin transactions are treated as "cash transactions" at the register and balanced with the tickets at the end of the day.

Additional Benefits: This same feature would benefit everyone who wants a quick and easy way to receive payments without performing exchange calculations and without having to open or keep a wallet on their phone.

Thanks for considering,
Trader Steve

Me too. Access came from a Tor exit node and was obviously scripted (User Agent: Python-urllib/2.7 )...

Same here.  I am lucky to have static IPs so I have my wallet locked down and moved my coin out of my mobile wallet just in case.

Blockchain.info is Bitcoin's most popular bitcoin wallet and block explorer.
how about making http://blockchain.info/pools accurate - too many people look at it and get scared - there is even a stickie in the mining subforum https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=123726.0 since November last year
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=77000.msg3207708#msg3207708 has a list of coinbase signatures to make it easier
kinlo can do it - I am sure you guys are capable if you were to put the effort in see: http://blockorigin.pfoe.be/chart.php

I would recommend you change your wallet alias. If anyone visits http://blockchain.info/wallet/YourUsername you will receive an "Authorization Required." email, this isn't really a problem but using an alias which isn't the same as your username on bitcointalk or other bitcoin sites will prevent anyone from easily accessing your wallet login page and you will stop receiving the malicious login attempt emails.

Ideally note down your wallet identifier and don't use an alias at all.

Please let users decide if they want that kind of security. Please make ON/OFF switch for this "authorization" and keep it ON by default.

I have a pocket change wallet and it makes me sick when i'd like to show it to someone and i have to do all the extra work (opening email, clicking on link, etc etc). It's annoying. It's super cool to have that kind of security available... but in some cases, it would be great if we could turn it off for ease of use on multiple computers. Thanks.

I got such an email too, originating from a tor exit node:
Time: 2013-09-24 08:53:37
IP Address: 162.213.223.139
User Agent: Python-urllib/2.7

Here is the thing; I dont have an alias, or not that I know off.

Im not overly worried since I use blockchain only for viewing (no private keys for anything with btcs) but Im curious.

How can I change my wallet's language? I can't without going through the homepage everytime, and that doesn't always work.

Hi,

Blockchain Wallet API gives back Unknown Error recently if I try to send with hex encoded private key:
Code:

Please let users decide if they want that kind of security. Please make ON/OFF switch for this "authorization" and keep it ON by default.

The problem is 90% of users will not read warnings and will simply choose the easiest option. It's like when you give users the option to not pay transaction fees, the majority of them will, only to complain about transaction being slow to confirm soon after.

I have a pocket change wallet and it makes me sick when i'd like to show it to someone and i have to do all the extra work (opening email, clicking on link, etc etc)

This should be easier now. Links in approval emails will now whitelist the browser that made the request even if the approval email is opened on a different device.

For example: If you want to open your wallet on a friend's PC you can use your alias and open the approval email on your phone.

---

In a related change, aliases will no longer work on wallets with no email associated. Anyone receiving the following error "Insecure Alias. Please login using your wallet identifier link." needs to use their identifier to login and once logged in add an email to the account. Contact Support (Not me) if you have forgotten your identifier.

----

Support for an increased number of pbkdf2 iterations

An custom number of pbkdf2 rounds can now be choosen in [Account Settings] -> [Debugging]



Enabling this feature alters the wallet format slightly making it none compatible with old clients. The following clients support the new format

Chrome Extension v3.0.1
Firefox Extension v1.9.1
Mac OSX App v0.3 (Not available in app store yet)
Android App v3.61

The iPhone app and third party Windows 8 apps do not support the new format and will cease to function if the pbkdf2 rounds are altered. Once the remaining clients are updated the new default will be 10,000 iterations and all existing wallets will be upgraded.

Depending on the speed of your device and the number of rounds a progress bar may now be displayed on login.

Should be fixed now.

Noticed the update to v1.98 but unfortunately the addon is still not working under linux firefox.
The icon is appearing now, but clicking on it does nothing.

Opening the url (resource://jid0-3vnsclfrwladqlsm1xgb50oxar0-at-jetpack/blockchain/data/en.html) manually does open the site but freeze at "Changing Wallet Identifier".

So it doesn't work for me under linux. Any others with that problem?
Under win7 I doesn't have these issues.


Can you have a look at this issue with the firefox extension, piuk?
At the moment it's unavailable at AMO too and the github version is outdated.

I am wondering if the extension is still maintained and secure to use.

Hi piuk, apologies if this has been asked before but how is the blockchain.info websocket API implemented and is it open sourced somewhere?  If not, would you consider open sourcing it?  I'd like to host my own version of it.

Thanks,

Since you (piuk) are considered as a reliable person, are you thinking to become also a gateway for the Ripple network?
Users will need to move their Bitcoin to temporary btc addresses owned by you (blockchain.info), and then you will move IOU BTC to the Ripple addresses of users.

"We're sorry, but we can't find what you're looking for."

It is still being maintained. The not found error is a bug in the extension gallery. Unfortunately it will take mozilla 2-4 weeks to review the update before it will be available again.

The latest xpi is available here: https://github.com/blockchain/My-Wallet-Firefox-Extension/blob/master/blockchain.xpi

Hi piuk, apologies if this has been asked before but how is the blockchain.info websocket API implemented and is it open sourced somewhere?  If not, would you consider open sourcing it?  I'd like to host my own version of it.

It currently not open source. You could use Bitcoinj and tomcat (with built in websocket support) to create your own version.

Since you (piuk) are considered as a reliable person, are you thinking to become also a gateway for the Ripple network?
Users will need to move their Bitcoin to temporary btc addresses owned by you (blockchain.info), and then you will move IOU BTC to the Ripple addresses of users.

I believe the plan for the moment is to be exclusively Bitcoin, this could certainly change in future.

Chrome Blockchain App updated to 3.0.2.  Can we get a list of changes made?

It incorporates changes from this commit: https://github.com/blockchain/My-Wallet/commit/d68a836399c7570789d4abb3d4232c5a86bb9734

No end user changes.

- Added Filersaver.js for better cross browser support when downloading wallet backups client side.
- For authentication rather than the sharedKey being passed in full each request it is now hashed using a TOTP scheme, that way if it was intercepted for any reason (no SSL) it is valid for only a few seconds. As a side effect the javascript client now syncs with server time when the wallet is opened.

I don't seem to be getting notifications when newly minted coins are transferred to one of my addresses, works fine for normal transactions.
