Announcing... Coinapult!!!

From the team that brought you FeedZeBirds, Coinapult is here!

Coinapult is how you send Bitcoins via email.

If you want to send Bitcoins to someone, traditionally that person needed a Bitcoin address. No longer! Now, if you know someone's email address, you can Coinapult coins over to them. See a cute girl, and want to launch Bitcoins at her? Great idea! Just load them up on the Coinapult (instant confirmations), and let slip the machine of war!

The coins will be launched thousands of miles instantly and smash down in the girl's inbox. She'll have simple instructions on how to access the coins, and she can then do what she wishes. She will be impressed, and will love you forever.

Uses for Coinapult:
- Send coins to friends and family easily
- Introduce new people to Bitcoin by giving them coins upfront
- Tip anyone in the world - like a certain news article? Sent Bitcoins to the author's email!
- Businesses: plugin to Coinapult's API to send refunds, distribute winnings, or <insert creative idea here>

We know the community will find exciting new uses for Coinapult, so give it a try and see what you come up with.

Launch Some Coin Right Now!

https://coinapult.com

EDIT:
Just added SMS support. Simply type in a 10 digit (US + Canada) phone number into the "to" field to send money via text message.

This is awesome. Just what is needed to introduce grandmother to Bitcoins.

Awesome stuff. Your FAQ answered almost every question I had but one: How does the email message with the coins and instructions look like?

My personality type: INTJ - please forgive my weaknesses (Not naturally in tune with others feelings; may be insensitive at times, tend to respond to conflict with logic and reason, tend to believe I'm always right)

After 30 days, an email is sent to the sender (see 'From:' field on send page) with a recovery code.

Where are the coins stored? What security measures do you have in place?

How can users feel safe knowing that their bitcoins they send actually get to the receiver?

This is how scams get started by NOT answering these questions.

The coins are stored on Paysius's secure transaction server. The two communicate via the Paysius API, which is documented here: https://paysius.com/developers. This is the same system that Feed Ze Birds has been using and distributing hundreds of BTC through for months.

Ok... but I'm interested in the whole process. Please show us everything, from start to finish, how it looks if I send someone a coinapult message with coins, what message they receive and what process they have to go through to get the coins and how the instructions look like guiding them, I would like to know the details of every step it takes to complete the process.

I just test-fired the Coinapult, and the coins landed in GMail's spam filter. Sad Also, you may want to be more clear in the instructions to claim the coins, if you're targeting people who have never heard of Bitcoin before. Although I'm not sure how you can do that without seeming suspicious: "Someone sent you some money! Install this software on your computer and then click this link to receive your money!" Yeah, that sounds totally legitimate. Roll Eyes

Hazek, I could spend 10 minutes taking screenshots and carefully posting them... but I'm really lazy. Risk a bitcent on my honor and try it. :p

Damn google. I think they decided it was spam because I sent so many test messages to my gmail account. I'm thinking of getting a third party mail service to send the emails, but that is a costly hassle. :/

The wallet is empty, but I don't think this is a bug. This is from the example I posted, no? I had it refill, and it looks like you grabbed the first 4. Greedy. :p

Actually, I only grabbed 2 from the one you posted (1NjnUW4x1zVb3Ar7KEjVeqwnkm16A3qgdb). I somehow managed to grab 3 from the real request I sent (1EKnsRCiGtbocnK4vNR7ZUtevTXeNgDMqZ). That is a bug. Is it based on the amount? It's actually a coincidence that I picked the same amount as you did. Does everybody who requests 0.1 BTC keep getting coins until the wallet runs dry? Shocked Anyway, can I have an address to refund the 0.3 BTC I accidentally stole?

This is not a bug. When I put the screenshot up, I set a script to automatically refill it as soon as someone recovered the funds. It was supposed to refill 5 times. The fact that it sent to your addresses just means that you were the first few requests to hit that page. This isn't a normal part of the system, I just thought it'd be a fun way for a few people to try a recovery based on my example.

If you'd like to send it back to 19c7oXEhBGXp3VD8dimth9yLdtZiGGzoDu, I'll distribute it to the first 4 people to PM me with an email address. As a matter of fact, I'll send 0.1btc to the first 10 people to PM me an email address, provided they all post here whether they received exactly the amount requested. Please, try again, if you think it'll multiple your coin. Prove me wrong. Smiley

This isn't a normal part of the system, I just thought it'd be a fun way for a few people to try a recovery based on my example.

But it isn't just the one you put up. I sent 0.1 BTC to myself (for real), then received 0.1 BTC. So far so good. Then I saw the screenshot, tried it out with a new address, and got another 0.1 BTC. Then all Hell broke lose. I recieved an additional 0.2 BTC in two additional transactions to the first address (the one not related to the one you put up) and another 0.1 BTC to the second address. I also did not click the claim link multiple times, or refresh the claim page, or anthing like that. I just suddenly started getting a bunch of extra coins for no reason. Shocked

Refunded the extra 0.3 BTC I wasn't supposed to get. I've also sent another 0.1 BTC to myself, and have (so far) received exactly 0.1 BTC. Smiley

Foxpup,

Thanks for sending the example funds back. Smiley

I just ran 100 test transactions through, and each received exactly what it was supposed to. The logs show that the script I threw together to fund my example funded each of these transactions. I shouldn't have tried to be tricky; I just thought it'd make for some fun.

0.8btc left to the next 8 people who PM me an email address!

Just sent a couple of catapults flying.. thanks for the site.

A quick question, if a recipient does click on the URL and log into Coinapult to see the funds but does NOT take their Bitcoins do I still get the option to recover the coins in 30 days?

Edit: PM sent Smiley
