Licking my boob since 1970

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to encompass all the bitcoin services into at least one category.  The category list I have so far is:

     Adult Sites                   Consulting Services              Currency Exchanges    
     Directories                   Discussion Forums               Ecommerce Sites    
     Gambling Sites             Mining Pools                        News Sites
     Online Banks/Wallets    Payment Processors

Can anyone else think of categories I may be missing?

Thanks!

Martin

You're missing news sites perhaps... Aren't online wallets and online banks the same?

Well, I would consider them the same, but I know some would like them to be different.  For example, an online bank could offer interest while an online wallet would allow payments.  I'm going to allow a single site to be in more than one category, so I'd like the categories to be as atomic as possible.

I will add news sites in there, as well as payment processors.  Thank you!  Smiley

Yes - I don't want to create a category for every type of good or service that can be bought with bitcoins.  That would dilute it's usefulness.  I would be open to renaming "Ecommerce Sites" to something more meaningful.

Maybe you're already planning it this way but these should behave like tags, so you can attach multiple tags to a business/service.

Yes, one website can be in as many categories as possible. 

I've also decided to combine wallets and banks into one category since, as nmat pointed out, they are essentially the same thing.
