I know this is not new, but I wanted to post it anyway.  I had to work on a project for my HTML 5 class and this is was my project.

http://www.millionBChomepage.com

Please check it out and tell me what you think.
If you are interested in adding your link to the page I can have it posted very quick.

Thanks for looking.

There was another one of these sites that appeared awhile ago. They eventually had to give away adspace for free...
Not bad though for a class project!

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Well...

I went ahead and did it anyway.

This project was just a fun hobby/background project I worked on over the last 8/9 months but it grew into something bigger.

https://the-million-bitcoin-homepage.com

Payments are processed and notifications sent in real-time. Block purchases also appear in real-time, along with their associated click/visit stats (also updating live on the page). The current active number of users is also tracked. When blocks are purchased we build up a two reserve balances: one is used to create hidden "gold blocks" which users may win, the other sends money to the following charities.

Sean's Outpost - 1M72Sfpbz1BPpXFHz9m3CdqATR44Jvaydd
IndySci.org - 1M72Sfpbz1BPpXFHz9m3CdqATR44Jvaydd
Bitcoin 100 - 1BTC1oo1J3MEt5SFj74ZBcF2Mk97Aah4ac

On the backend the site makes use of:

bitcoind
ZeroMQ/RabbitMQ
Redis
Postgres + Postgis
Node.JS (connect/express, socket.io, passport, and a huge list of other modules...)
Nginx

On the frontend I had fun implementing a bitcoin qrcode scanner, price conversion widget, the map makes use of a quadtree of <canvas/> elements.

The hope is/was that once a few large blocks are purchased, smaller users can benefit from purchasing little blocks or blocks futher from the centre (pricing is distance dependant from the origin 0,0 of the grid).

I hope you like it, regardless of whether you use it or not. The response on the bitcoin subreddit was less than stellar, but there you go...  Cry

All design/code done by yours truly. I'm currently available for hire if anyone is interested.

you guys should keep your million dollar but with bitcoin web pages accessible, it seriously brings down the whole million dollar but with bitcoin web page franchise when some site is down, how can anyone believe they are worth a million dollars in bitcoin if nobody is even sure what the URL is supposed to be

What are you even on about? Hilarious noob.

The page I've made is at... https://the-million-bitcoin-homepage.com/

That is the link I originally submitted when I originally chimed in on this thread...

If you are so qualified to judge my work, then can you point me to something you've done in the Bitcoin space? Please do.

Like I've mentioned clearly, this project was a self-driven and learning motivated experience. The specific application here (a revamp of the tired-out and useless pixel advertising idea) was not the important part, but I wanted to at least make something that had the chance to echo the ethos behind Bitcoin, hence the ability to win gold blocks in a lottery-like fashion and the fact it is coded to ping out payments to charity.

I wanted to go through the entire process, alone, of implementing something and pushing out a well-engineered project.

That's all that matters to me, your petty little childish comments are exactly what holds the Bitcoin space back... my efforts had positive intent unlike your own.

Your reaction, destructive and petty, is exactly the kind of thing that holds the Bitcoin space back. Stop it and go away.

I wanted to raise awareness about Bitcoin (by leveraging an old news story and inspiring others to follow in the entrepanurial steps of Alex Tew), provide people and businesses with a central space they could post their ideas/services...

Does that deserve such harsh criticism?

Grow up.

Financial gain is also not the motive here, the website is (of course) not worth $1,000,000... neither was the original Million Dollar Homepage...

The website diverts 20% of profits to charity, and 10% back to users in the "gold block" lottery.

At least I didn't just fork bitcoind, change the name, premine and expect people to give me money for it...

I did work, and here is the proof.
