Lachesis and I have been working together on an exciting new free bitcoin service that we are releasing today: BitMail
! The premise is simple: send bitcoins through email.
We think that BitMail will make it even easier to send bitcoins—all you need to know about your recipient is their email address, and you can send people bitcoins even if they don't use Bitcoin yet!
Most importantly, we hope that BitMail can play a huge role in helping drive adoption of Bitcoin. For example, you can now send bitcoin donations to anybody who has an email address, such as your favorite blogger. Once you send that person bitcoins through our service, BitMail walks them through the process of downloading the bitcoin client and claiming their bitcoins. Hey, nothing
provides a better incentive for trying Bitcoin then the promise of free money!
Please try it out, and let us know what you think. Even if you just send 5 bitcoins to several of your friends' email addresses, this can have a viral effect on Bitcoin adoption.http://www.BitcoinMail.com
We look forward to hearing your comments/questions/suggestions!
