We'll be kicking off development of bitdrop shortly after GLBSE2.0 is out the door (already 3 days late :s) we'll also be doing an IPO on GLBSE to fund it.

Google just needs to adopt Bitcoin. After the whining and crying stops everyone will (mistakenly) thank them for inventing it.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

I can supply a device that peroidically ping gps locations through the cellular network and these devices can be sold to either runners and/or customers to place in their package to make sure it gets their.

Basically someome needs to create a website that looks up the route of the package and then queries the nearest runners asking if they can full fill the order for X amount of btc(along with estimated amount of $$$).
Sounds simple

What if runners are unavailable to pick up packages like they promised? (family member died, rush to hospital , some other extreme reason?)

I'll add another runner (maybe 2 if my wife isn't busy) to the Vegas network if you ever get it running.

Possibly depending on the package they could post it to the next runner. At least message someone about it and the site could notify another runner in the area if there is one.

The important part here is "communication".

The gps device would be nice too. Especially for dead drops Smiley

I think this is an excellent idea.  I would be willing to be a runner for non-dark packages on my daily, 40-minute commute in Oklahoma, and maybe a ship items thru this system once it gets going and I have things to sell.

For developers working or considering working on this, you may have a look at http://www.openstreetmap.org/ as a data source.  Also, please keep in mind that some people, like myself, are available for point-to-point travel, but not so much for radius travel.

Is couriering cash something you'ld object to?  If not, up to what amount would you be comfortable?

(I don't have an actual need, just curious what the response to this question would be.)

I wouldn't object. No limit, upper or lower. But then, ideally, I have no idea whats in the box.

How the heck did I miss this gem of an idea. Love it and would definitely sign up as a curiour. And would also be interested in sending this way.

What kind of prices are we talking with it being gas price^mileage based?

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA
It is being worked on by smart people. -DamienBlack

This should be a p2p android app rather than a website.

https://booster.io/tipjar/0c8xe2g   the bounty is here.

One thing to consider is using existing services that are similar https://www.meemeep.com/ for example.

Would be good if services like that had an api you could pull and advertise any holes in the network to be filled Cheesy

Instead of a radius, why not define a region that you are willing to go to. Maybe some parts of your state are largely uninhabited or the roadways aren't tolerable for your vehicle, or you want to avoid certain portions of your city. That might make routing more complicated but probably more efficient.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.
