It would, but if people think "ah, no one, won't bother" then it won't get started, so I can see requiring an email and zip to look.

I can see that as a good idea but I can also see the opposite as true "can't see any orders, won't bother"

Maybe there should be a faq explaining the nuances of the system because you can see the order book if you just enter a postcode. you are told "Email can't be blank" but it also opens the order book with that postcode ....

Why are all the Distances identical?

8892.7 kilometers

Surely not everyone before me is in the same postcode.

I tried location from IP, and it was close, but not close enough. It currently uses post code + country (from IP)

Yeah but you bought shares in Ubitex so you're conflicted.

A disclaimer would have been appropriated.

So, I own shares. Do you make a disclaimer every time you post about bitcoins that you own bitcoins ?

No, bitcoin is the currency of denomination, disclaimers are not expected or necessary as far as I'm aware. Shareholdings are considered differently.


Disclaimer: I own Bitcoins.

I think the defining feature of Ubitex will be the persistent rating system of the users. None of the other sites seem to provide this service, so it should definitely stand out due to that.

I offered to buy, but your code has a bug in the zip code handling.
My 5-digit zip code has a leading zero (02144) and it showed up as "2144".
Can't fix it for you, I'm not a Rails person.

It uses googles geo API.  So it should work internationally. Just some debugging needed.

Hm, ok, it's just that it says “Near zip code / postal code” on the frontpage, and entering a Danish zip code doesn't do much good…

I'm constantly amazed at how spread out bitcoin users are... I signed up when you first posted this, and I was the only one on the list.  Just checked again: same result.  I don't mean to disparage your site, though!  I think it will become very useful soon, and I appreciate that you opened up the code.  I've noticed the same trend with bitmunchies.  I offer grocery pickup in Denver, but none of my customers are even from Colorado.  We can't be that far from critical mass, though... $40M-$50M is definitely real money.

I just realised a flaw in this site, you can't be a buyer and a seller at the same time.

I'm a buyer if the terms are agreeable.
I'm a seller if the terms are agreeable.

However I can't submit 2 entries on this site.

For now I guess I'll have to use 2 different email addresses.

I signed up a while ago, trying to sell some BTC (and I'm in one of the largest cities in the world). So far haven't been able to find a buyer.

I'd rather avoid exchanges if possible. I might have to start putting craigslist ads to sell my coins.

It worked for me just now in the UK, and there's a list of 60+ UK users there, so I guess it's working for them too. Smiley
