technically speaking, what would be all of the steps involved in making a "bump two phones together to initiate a money transfer" platform work with bitcoin?

The recipient would give its public key to the sender, and the sender would create a transaction to that public key and send it to the recipient. Then both broadcast it on the network.

It would be like IP transactions.

You could just bump them together. http://bu.mp/. The phones themselves would then exchange public keys and the sender would create the bitcoin transaction.

I once saw this thing about this technology that used the human body as a conduit, so you could keep your phone or other pocktable computing device in your pocket and simply shake hands to seal the deal.

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

Wanna gimme some BTC for any or no reason? 1FmvtS66LFh6ycrXDwKRQTexGJw4UWiqDX Smiley

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!
