BitAvenue is looking for a website designer as well as a programmer to do the backend. In the past week we have been focusing on the legal process involved with incorporation and setting up a ltd.
We are in contact with Charlie from BitInstant and Piuk from Blockchain.info who will permit BitAvenue to integrate our services with theirs.
Feel free to send me a message if you are an exchange, brokerage, or other Bitcoin related website that wishes to work with us.
In what country are you considering to base your server?
We will be hosting either in Panama or Hong Kong, depending on the macro server costs that we will face. Ideally, we will host in a place with very little government interference as we believe it will enable us to protect the privacy of our customers.
We are open to suggestions, as long as you know the hosting company. We will not buy from a reseller.
BitAvenue aims to protect your privacy. We will NEVER allow ourselves to ask you for identification. Upon being FORCED, (we will resist being pressured) to do so by others, will we inform our userbase, return your funds, and close down.
I like this. Very John Galt-ish
Make sure you're not in the US. I recommend forming it and/or hosting and/or running it from Guatemala, which has no reciprocal information treaty with the US (Hong Kong also good).
You should also build a backup or mirror of it that exists as a Tor hidden service.
We have permission from Freedom Hosting to setup a mirror of BitAvenue in the unlikely event of seizure or shutdown.
