(This would be a Project Development post if I wasn't in Newbie Jail!)

I've made a new service where anyone can earn bitcoin in the web browser. You enter your payment address, perform some analytic tasks that a paying company needs completed, and receive bitcoin as a reward soon afterward. (Minutes, when all is working.)

You could think of it as mining with your own mind, rather than a GPU.

http://CoinWorker.com

I'd love it if people could bang on it and let me know what they think. Thanks!

This sounds really cool. It's like Amazon Mturk but with a much better payment system  Smiley I'll give it a shot when I set up my secure wallet.

I love this idea.Just entered by BTC address and no tasks yet.Maybe there needs to be a way where we can keep a steady stream of tasks (by creating a backlog maybe) so that more people like myself can try this at a time when I'm available (different time zones are an issue for me as I'm in UK ,the site is based overseas).

This is indeed a cool service, not only for people who need tasks done, but also for people looking to earn some BTC.

Keep up the good work Smiley

Cool. Is it possible to submit work?

This is a great idea, and for the most part this service is executed very well. My only complaint is that some of the test questions are a little off in their accuracy. Though maybe you don't have any control over that? Either way congrats on getting this off the ground. I can't wait for it to get more traffic!

Thanks to all who've tried it and commented!

Sorry about the limited number and variety of tasks; I don't have direct control over them. They come via a San Francisco-based company called CrowdFlower that specializes in crowdsourcing.

During my own testing, there were often times where there were 3 different tasks on offer, with many thousands of tasks in each, so I expect the variety will again improve soon. There is also the potential for tasks in other languages. (At one point, the only tasks available were in German, which I don't speak.  Sad )

If you wanted to provide paid-tasks, for now you'd talk to CrowdFlower and pay them with traditional currencies. Then your tasks would be sent out through their network of channel sites, of which my CoinWorker is only one. I don't know if they let task-providers narrow the target-communities for their tasks... they might.  (If you wanted to provide tasks and pay in bitcoin, that'd require a bunch more custom work... maybe someday!)

It would be truly awesome if we could submit work directly to you, to target Bitcoin users. And offcourse pay with bitcoins.

So sorry we're out of tasks!

I hope that will change by tomorrow. In the meantime I've added an indicator on the homepage -- both top-right of header and just before the address-entry area -- to warn when there are no tasks available.

Yay, a task finished. However, the reward for the only task there is right now is really low, only 0.008 BTC for finding the website and FB pages of 9 organizations.

Watching the available tasks through the period of my own internal testing, 5 points (currently ≈0.008btc at 6.25usd/btc) is the lowest I've seen offered.

I've most often seen 15 points (≈0.024btc), with occasional 22 points (≈0.0035btc) or 31 points (0.049btc) tasks.

Supposedly, acquiring a strong track record may make an individual identity eligible for bonuses and higher-value tasks, but my experience with the task source isn't long enough to even know what that would look like, to a CoinWorker.

One interesting task I saw earlier, that hasn't recurred in a while, was a bit like the local-search-results-assessment, but for e-commerce searches (with product photos) within certain product categories.

Gotta get some more jobs! This is a great service. I made over 1.4 BTC in about an hour when it first came out, doing the local search engine rating thingy. Besides, that was actually pretty fun to do.

It turns out I'm still in a limited-trial mode with the task-provider. So, there's hope of a more-reliable volume and variety of tasks in the future.

I'm working on the next steps and will update this thread when there's more info -- or new tasks of any kind!

New 5-point tasks are available: "Search for Official Websites and Facebook Pages Groups In The U.S.A."

No word yet on a greater variety of tasks.

And now, more 22-point tasks are available: "How relevant/satisfactory are these search engine results?"
