With PayPal freezing the accounts of BitCoin traders, one of the most effective approaches is to consider the many other services out there that would enable conventional currency <-> BitCoin transactions. The idea would be to have interested users evaluate the various options, and then build a site which allowed users to forward money to it and have it purchase BitCoins from other users as they became available.
These new sites could provide an interface to various credit card processors and many ATM services, as well as online banks and friendly credit unions. Plenty of opportunities for relationships can be formed, and new sites created within the community would be able to make that happen.
To allow these new sites to be created, a Drupal module is being developed to allow essentially anyone to create their own site in Drupal, free, open-source and known for being very easy to create with no programming knowledge. All the programming is done by module writers, and site creators merely need to plug the module in and configure it with a point-and-click interface.
The author of the module is asking what features the community would like. And since there is so much demand within the BitCoin community for a means of converting various currencies to BitCoin and vice-versa, the community's interest can collectively fund the creation of such a module.
The result is that the BitCoin community is now able to support and create the very solutions it has been seeking.
