As per this and this post, me & dissipate have setup a new site:

http://bitcoin.cz.cc

You propose features for Bitcoin. The front page shows a mix of the most donated proposals (10) and newest ones (5). Once the feature is implemented in Bitcoin then the bounty goes to the author and the proposal is deleted.

Think of it as an experiment into future methods for bitcoin based free software dev. Right now I'm just putting it out there to see what happens. If it grows then we can think about turning it into a bug tracker type thing with tickets, comments, statuses, assignment of tickets and search.

For this to work, people have to know about it. Add it to your signatures!

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Because nobody has proposed any features yet.

BTW for now, I specify payouts once bounties are completed. If Bitcoin development becomes too fast then we can develop a system, but for now I'm doing it manually.

Don't call it a kickstarter clone, call it a bitcoin-enhanced kickstarter Smiley

By putting bounties on each bug fix and feature, Gavin and the other bitcoin developers will be able to tell which features and bug fixes are most urgent. Each part of the project has it's own price! This pricing mechanism for FOSS projects is a radical improvement over the model of putting arbitrary priorities on bugs and features.

Do features have to be implemented in the official Bitcoin client to be eligible for the bounty, or can they be in a standalone application?

Maybe you just need to interface with the Github bug tracker. I heard they have an API for you to use.

This is actually a very cool idea.

By using existing systems, it allows you get up to speed very quickly.

Yet at the same time you loose the flexibility and inventiveness from having a blank canvas. Since this is a grand experiment, maybe it's best to keep with the custom solution for now, adding features as we see fit later.

Can you set this up so we can see how many people have donated to each fund? 5 people each bidding 1, and 1 person bidding 5, convey different information

All posts by me after 2012 were a compromised account. Probably by "BBOD The Best Futures Exchange". SORRY Y'ALL

Yep. Does it matter if it doesn't show names?

Nice!
How about a discussion board/comments section under each project?
Pretty easy with Disqus.  Or use Facebook Connect+fb board and have the discussion posts go down the Facebook newsfeed for extra virality.

I'll integrate Disqus. How easy is it to do?

Otherwise I can just slap on comments (it's not hard to do).

If it's as easy as IntenseDebate's API it is just a matter of putting a JavaScript where you want the comments.

New feature request...

Blockchain broken up into distinct files, by year or half-year, so that really old blocks can be archived onto less-than-local storage while still be accessible to the client.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'
