Many will have read of the new service from Barclays (In the Uk) where money can be sent from a Barclays bank account to any other registered bank account using only a mobile phone number and a smart phone app, pretty much instantly.
I have registered and would like to try this, but the only other person I know who has registered cant seem to make it work. Maybe actually it doesnt work until next month.
Is there anyone who has a pingit account who would send me the smallest transaction amount possible to Oh seven nine four 1823465 ?
(Thats a Uk mobile phone number.)
If the smallest transaction is trivial (like a penny) thats fine, if its not (like £5) I will refund you in bitcoins. I cannot send money using pingit as I dont have a Barclays account, so its a one-way transaction. If you can add a message into it please try to add in your bit coin address if there is room. I want to see the format of the message that occurs in my bank account.
Just for safety, please PM me as well with your bitcoin address.
By the way, its unlikely that the above phone will be switched on most of the time, its not my main phone number, but this is not needed for pingit to work. So please do NOT text or phone this number!!
Oh (I should be so lucky!) please no
Nigerians 419 people sending me fifteen million pounds and saying I can keep the change!! If you send me more than £15 you have (possibly) lost it!
This is me trying to find out in a basic way something about new technology that I might then apply to bitcoins, nothing more.
Dont trust me ? Then dont do it!
