Hello, everyone!   Grin

I have decided to go through with starting up a Ringtones for Bitcoins service.  I am a musician of many instruments and would like to create unique and original ringtones to be purchased for Bitcoins!

My goal is to make these ringtones easily available to consumers with different types of phones, and, most importantly, I want to provide them at a very low cost.  Whereas typical ringtones cost between $2-$4 USD, I would like to make these ringtones available for 25-50 cents.  I hope to create a diverse lineup of ringtones for all of your musical (or quirky) tastes.  Of course, you can also expect to find ringtones that specifically relate to Bitcoin Smiley

Feedback for this poll is important.  I am curious to know what formats of ringtones are most widely used.  I have found it troublesome, for example, to create a ringtone in QCP format with the same clarity as in MP3 format.  If I were to find out that almost nobody uses QCP, I might drop that format entirely.  But, if I find out that many use QCP, then I will have to reconsider my approach.

Any additional feedback is encouraged and welcome!  Thank you in advance for your support Smiley



According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

It's all about the game, and how you play it

That's good, MP3 and WAV are easiest.

Would you pay 25 cents for a ringtone that nobody on the planet has (yet), especially if that ringtone was Bitcoin related?

There are usually two types of ringtones:  Music ringtones and sound clips.  Imagine if you received a call at a party or crowded room and some goofy cartoonish voice started screaming "Bitcoin" from your phone   Cheesy  Might it be a good conversation starter?

Would anyone here pay 25 cents for custom, original ringtones?

I'm sorry but I would not pay for a ringtone. Sad

I have not purchased a ringtone but I think that's because the prices are usually rather high. I'm thinking ringtones go for $1.99 or more which is high vs. something like a whole song for $0.89-$0.99. Furthermore, I imagine such inflated pricing is due to a combination of a small market for most ringtones and lack of power to reduce credit card/paypal transaction fees.

If fees approaching zero can enable ringtones for the same or less than the cost of a song on iTunes or Amazon, I might then spend a little time browsing to purchase a unique ringtone.

Here's one that I made myself, donations if you feel like it. It's a midi file which most phones use (and they sound more ringtoney too).


Inspired by a classic C64 video game, you can probably figure it out.

I've never paid for a ringtone, even with using custom tones. It's too easy to get free tones.

If this service takes off,can I use your service to let me sell sounds (used as ringtones) for bitcoins (the price I set) as that would be nice and I can get bitcoins?
