I'd like to start an open source project. The goal is to create a service where anyone can accept any type of crypto currency.

I would personally implement support for first 10 cryptocurrencies and then anyone could easily add a "module" to the service to accept yet another altcoin.

This way there is no need for people to decide if it's worth to add suport for accepting LTC or NXT payments.. one app does it all.

And for coins that can be programmatically traded for Bitcoins on major exchanges, there would be option for automatic conversion into BTC.

Can you guys see the need? Anyone wants to get involved?

 I'd like to offer my support with this project. I can offer dedicated servers, ssl and domain name. I can also pitch in with development. I agree we need a service like this. I'm available on Skype: artw1982 if you're interested in talking about it.

I don't think that's the kind of support he meant, as anyone could do that.. In that case i'm also ready to host a state of the art dedicated server with a ssl certified domain (commen sense for most bitcoin services).

Just mail me @ hakan.wnme@gmail.com

I also offered development as well. It my seem elementary to those of us that take those things for granted, but for someone with little to no experience they don't ever consider those variables. Some people think you can Throw a service up on GoDaddy and it'll be ok. I've seen several projects announced on here that were hosted with shared hosting on GoDaddy or Dreamhost or HostGator that were both insecure and slow.

You have a good point there, Thank you for your reply. Personally I think those, that can't handle something that basic, shouldn't bother at all. Tongue

So we talked with artw1982 and decided to proceed with this.

Development will start tomorrow and source will be available on GitHub.

 - accept most available altcoins (or pick & choose)
 - either zero fees or very minimal fees (if necessary)
 - keep the money in altcoins or have them automatically transfered to Bitcoin (not available for all altcoins)
 - use anywhere in world - set your prices in any currency you like
 - new altcoin devs can easily add support for their coin

Let's enable easy commerce for all the altcoins out there!

It's slowly getting some shape. Get notified when it's launched: http://cointurtle.com/

Development started and sources will be available on https://github.com/tomholub/coin-turtle . This thing will get done, it's just a matter of time.

We welcome any help, here's some things that will be needed:

A) Implemention - operations with individual altcoins based on this template https://github.com/tomholub/coin-turtle/blob/master/www/app/libs/Altcoins/Altcoin_BTC.php . Every Altcoin is welcome.

B) User Experience advisor / designer. To make it easy to use.

C) First testers. Anyone who will be able to test the system with a few cents to find any possible bugs

D) Implementation - connecting to exchage APIs for automatic trading Altcoin -> BTC if selected by user

E) Implementation - class to update latest prices of USD -> All fiat currencies and BTC -> All crypto currencies

alternatively, with same or even higher importance:

F) Supporter. Let people know. Anyone who can either use this later or might be able to help.

This is a great idea!  I would definitely use this on my site.

Did you know?: Most of our hash power comes from other sources.  We are now specialized in the resale of cloudmining contracts through our associates!

Here is the currency conversion class I'd need help with, to connect it to some reliable source of info.

https://github.com/tomholub/coin-turtle/blob/master/www/app/libs/ApiClients/GetConversionRates.php

Specifically I'd need the following functions filled with some real substance :-)

getBtcUsdRate()
getAltcoinSellRates()
getFiatRates()

Maybe someone has something similar in their project and can copy&paste the code?

It's best to reply here if you want to do it, so that others know someone is working on this

//edit: I can actually copy&paste getBtcUsdRate() from http://coinbaseorders.com/ . One down, two left.

Keep up great work man, I would love to see this on websites / ATMs / HW payment terminals etc. if this could really enable people to pay with any coin they want. But honestly I think first step should be to adopt Bitcoin itself in real world.. and then let people decide which crypto coin is "the right one".. concurrency is a good thing imho
