Clever saying.

I think a platform is a great idea. Add TOR to the mix as well, and "ROB" (which may lead to some unfortunate associations) becomes Ripple, Open Transaction, Bitcoin on Tor - "ROBoT"

I think the TOR piece is important because there will be some backlash if Bitcoin is widely adopted.

edit: Had to switch tasks and didn't get to finish my thought. What I really wanted to say was, it would be great to have a couple of simple applications in the ROBoT appliance as complete working samples -- a simple exchange and a simple store, then burn it to CDs and USB sticks and make an AMI for Amazon and a VM image for Rackspace etc.

If the exchange itself has a key in the WoT then you could setup a traveling exchange on a wifi laptop, yet users would still be able to recognize it by its reputation with the overall WoT. Soon there is an exchange in every neighborhood.

Just a thought.

My Canary: I will never ask for a loan or offer escrow services. If someone does with this account, consider it compromised.

That's a cool idea. Even your local loan shark who lends out $10 to his buddies (but expects payback) might want to expand into the Bitcoin world. I reiterate that we'd have to make it usable by ANYONE regardless of computer ability.

I made a thread specifically for implementing the web of trust API standard, which can be found here.

I wrote an email to build torbitcoin bundle, stating that bitcoin will be the virtual currency.
Hope they reply me or even though don't reply, start building torbitcoin.
On a side note, they tor decide to stop, tor for firefox. So, soon they will take out tor extension for firefox & decided to build Tor broswer ,with firefox as foundation.
