Hi All,

I'm chronicling my attempt, from beginning to end, to form a small team and start a Bitcoin business here: http://practicalagorism.com/2011/04/14/bitcoin-ventures-and-upside-potential/

This is the initial, get my feet wet, throw around a bunch of ideas and find out where the greatest need/demand is that I'll be able to satisfy with whatever team I'm able to form/join (even if it ends up being just me).

Anyway, I'd appreciate any input, and I'm excited to get to work on one of the projects I listed on my post.

Cheers

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

Nice to see some ambition. Cheesy I’ll leave feedback on some ventures.

Bitcoin Futures and Options Exchange
No clue on the current situation.

Bitcoin Lottery
Already done, see http://www.bitlotto.com/ and http://taabl.datlatec.com/.
Quote
Bitcoin Casino
Be sure to check https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade#Gambling_sites. I think there’s great potential here for a nice real gambling application though.
Quote
Bitcoin Escrow and Arbitration Service
There’s https://clearcoin.appspot.com/ and it’s in good (Gavin’s) hands.
Quote
Bitcoin Stock Exchange
Will be released soon by Nefario.
Quote
Bitcoin iPhone App
Absolutely, whether that be a wallet or just a Bitcoin based game. Search the forums for already existing attemps though, I think I saw something recently. It’d be better to join up instead of having two projects imo.
Quote
KickStarter for Bitcoin
I think the stock market would suffice for the current needs.
Quote
Bitcoin Bank and/or Credit Union
That is pretty huge, but if you can do it, go for it. Bank would be essentially an ewallet, right? Make sure to check mybitcoin.com in this case.
Quote
Bitcoin Credit Ratings
There’s http://bitcoin-otc.com/, but integration with social networks would definitely be nice.
Quote
Bitcoin Bond Market
Good idea, there’s certainly demand for an automated solution at the moment, although I think that will be covered by the upcoming stock market, too.
Quote
Bitcoin Shopping Cart and Business Solutions
This is needed the most in my opinion. Merchants are still having trouble setting Bitcoin up.

Thanks a lot for the input.

From what you said, I'm probably leaning toward either the casino or the Options/Futures Exchange.  I would also be willing to work on a Merchant/Business solutions, but I would definitely want to be working with at least a couple other people for any of these projects.

I'm also not opposed to jumping into an existing project, but it doesn't make quite as nice of a multi-post narrative if I don't go from start to finish in a project.  Tongue

Hi, I came across this post on Google, and decided to register. I'd be game for helping develop an online bitcoin casino - Possibly we could use/edit this platform, since it's open source and free. I'd like to make an online casino which is strictly bit coins, I think we should have it invite only at first, to keep it mostly "hidden" at the start. I'd suggest we host online poker at first since we wouldn't have to pony up much initial start up money and we can't lose a large amount of bitcoins - ie Roulette/Blackjack etc. Since poker is player vs player it's much more feasible. 

 http://www.pokerth.net/styles-gallery.html <-- website to opensource poker..

If anyone is interested, maybe we can chat a bit and start a development team, currently i'm unemployed and sick with mono so i've got plenty of free time on my hands.. although I don't have any instant messenger at the moment, so PM's over this forum will suffice until we've made some decisions.
