The Campaign with Max Keiser begins now.

Max's developers have successfully integrated Bit-Pay as a payment option in parallel to PayPal, to accept bitcoins for any project listed on http://piratemyfilm.com
  
On their site, using the two options side-by-side, Bit-Pay is FAR superior to PayPal.  Max will be promoting bitcoins heavily now that his own site is using them, and using them very well.

The first project to accept bitcoins will be our "Screw Banks" animated video and radio spot.

Here is the project listed on PMF:  http://www.piratemyfilm.com/projects/304

Pledge as little as $5 to help get this project produced!

Here's a little pricing comparison.  

For a $5 sale, Paypal takes 30 cents plus 3%, so the producer only gets $4.55.
Using Bit-Pay, the producer gets $4.95.  The nickel comes to Bit-Pay.

Technically, the Bit-Pay solution is also superior to PayPal.  Our callbacks have been integrated on the PMF back-end to mark payments as paid. PayPal will not give Max this capability.  PayPal has the capability, they just will not let Max use it.  No wonder in max's email to me he says  "i f******* hate paypal"

The way PMF works is you pledge a donation.  You only pay when the project is 100% committed and greenlit, then everyone who pledged can pay their donation.

It's a neat site, Max promotes it heavily, and now he will be promoting Bitcoin with it.

EDIT: We actually developed a new feature at Bit-Pay to make the payments easier.  You can now do a POST request to Bit-Pay to generate an invoice by just supplying your email address.  This is not sending bitcoins to an email address, this is posting to our server to create an invoice, using your account email as identification.

Any producer at PMF can now simply enter their email address (that is their registered merchant account at Bit-Pay) and PMF will enable their project to accept bitcoins.  That's it!

UPDATE:  PirateMyFilm has dumped PayPal and gone 100% bitcoin!  I have made this short video to show how the producers that list projects on PMF can get setup to accept bitcoins.

You folks at Bit-Pay are doing wonderful, fantastic things.

If people keep giving me all these great reasons to donate my coins, I'm going to run out of coins in no time...  Grin

You can just give your coins to me, I will be more frugal with them.  I promise. Grin

Nice job Bit-Pay, this is the sort of stuff that needs to happen if BTC is going to move out of the internet dark corners into the mainstream mind.

Baller.

PMF needs the "Bitcoin Accepted Here" badge on there somewhere. That's one of the most important things for people to start seeing on websites. Also make sure the FAQ or How it Works description of the process mentions Bitcoin as a payment option.

Great work!

The real advantage lies with those who do not have a credit card or Paypal account. The real choice here is not between $4.95 via Bitcoin / Bit-Pay or $4.55 via Paypal but rather between $4.95 via Bitcoin / Bit-Pay and no sale.

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card

We are working on this now.  He needs instructions for his producers to setup to accept bitcoins, and for users to get them.  We will mention BitInstant

Reserved a share, but I have to say I don't really understand the PMF site. I'm just interested in the "screw" project so I don't feel like figuring everything out. How do I pay for my share?

I've never gotten around to figuring out PMF.

Ideally PMF would get it together with Bitcoin and I would be offered and offer exactly one thing each:

 - They tell me:  A Bitcoin address to send Bitcoin to (green)
 - I tell them:  A Bitcoin address to remit any proceeds to.

I don't want to dick around with bit-pay accounts, PMF accounts, 'following' this and that, and on and on.  Bitcoin should be stone simple and anonymous and as best I can tell, it _could_ be.  I have not a whole lot more interest in having a bit-pay account than having a pay-pal account to be honest.
