Hi,

I work in web based application development and recently started a project for a BTC auction site.  However it struck me that if we want to improve BTC trade thus raise its worth then we don't just need another trade site but perhaps something that the community has "put into" and worked on for something we actually want.... that is to spend BTC for real stuff?

My initial thoughts are a Zend Framework based site with jquery.  Ok ZF has overheads and I don't want us to digress at this point.... my thinking was its a most excellent base for rapid development.  I'm sure there are many intelligent people on here who have plenty to contribute so at this time I'm just putting out the "feelers" as it were to gauge initial interest (developer and creative interest).

I was thinking this site would work from a referee standpoint.... IE it would referee the sale of an item between two people as opposed to trying to "handle" the sale... although as with ebay if there is a lot of interest from volume sellers perhaps the site could "monitor" payments and automatically complete sales based on the sellers pref for X confirmations.

Oh yes, nearly forgot, this project would be hosted in a public repository, it would be a collaborative effort as many open source projects are except those active in its development have a vested interest in BTC :-)

Thoughts please peeps?  its worth the effort as I think bitcoin really needs a boost for commerce.

An amazon.com clone in Bitcoins would make the owner of that site very wealthy.

oops, sorry admins you may want to move this to development  Wink

I'm not exactly talking about getting rich, tho last time I checked linus torvalds has no probs finding a job anywhere he wants  Grin

I'd hope the project was so successful it had many take the source and release their slant on the theme, but there would only ever be one official site run by the developers with the backing of the community as they have their say/stake? in it and how it works.

Just my 0.02 BTC :-)

Would this trading site convert bitcoins to the market value?  

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to prayers.
