I don't like that this site is making false claims.
When someone sends you a bitcoin, it is only accessible from the device you initially receive it on. You cannot easily access the funds from your mobile device (or from any other device for that matter). Generally speaking, you must access the bitcoins from the machine they were initially sent to / received on.
This is a lie, you can easily use a mobile wallet. You can access blockchain.info through their web browser as well as their mobile app, and many other android apps as well.
All flexcoin accounts are given a user generated flexcoin ID. This means thatany merchant that wants to accept bitcoins can now post on their site or storefront that their flexcoin ID is coffeeshop, and they will be able to accept bitcoins for free using this flexcoin ID. This is obviously a much easier method than having a customer send coins to bitcoin address 1555hjPG7pRwTHVMfukPvjXexQMHFE3qu6 , or having to scan a QR code.
While this is semi true, I could still scan a qr code faster than I could type in "coffee shop". Also, if you're going for memorization, firstbits solves that problem.
Since the 1990s, people have wanted to allow for micro-payments. However, with the credit card companies always charging a fee, it was impossible to charge 10 cents to read an article without incurring a loss. That 10 cent transaction would end up costing twice or three times as much after the credit card processing company took their cut. Flexcoin fixes that problem by allowing any amount to be transferred from flexcoin ID to flexcoin ID for free.
Please tell me why you can't already do this with bitcoin.
Bitcoins do not allow for charge backs, period. However, in the future, flexcoins will allow for a limited charge back period.
Isn't this the reason why so many bitcoin users hate Paypal and use bitcoin?
As of October 17th, 2011 anyone can send bitcoins to someone via e-mail. The person receiving the bitcoins does not have to download the bitcoin client to access their bitcoins. This allows for novices to use bitcoins.
You can use coinapult.com , mailacoin.com , any other service like that.
My point is, they're trying to make up imaginary problems that don't exist to get you to use them. I personally feel more secure when I'm not trusting my bitcoins to some other entity other than myself.
