Good service is worth paying for, if you come up with something people want/need just charge them for it. Especially when it is money related people want to see that you can prosper by playing it straight. MyBitcoin.com offered a nice free service... for a while.
Basically, it comes down to what you just mention. If a service has the right customer care and provide a good trusted service the rest should fall in line. Might even do it as a gratuity service in the likes of IBB model.
I bet some people would be interested in having you automatically dollar cost average over the month for them. You take the lump up front and dish out coins you buy each day at the market rate.
If you could take CC and set yourself up like those gym memberships you might really have something. Maybe even start buying coins for people after a week or longer wait.
A ton of people on a bitcoin drip sounds good to me.
You basically wrote out exactly how we are going to do this
. We plan on doing dollar cost average over the month also if we buy bitcoins cheaper then you would have bought them we are all ahead in the game still but yes dollar cost average wins out in this.
We take the lump of cash up front and go buy bitcoins in crates and put the rest on automatic. We were thinking the same thing regarding your "gym membership" way in that people can subscribe monthly via CC.
The great thing about extending out the time the bitcoins come out in the drip it lets us know how much inventory ahead of time and can plan accordingly and/or shut off someone who is cheating. One other aspect is we are able to adjust the % of bitcoins your receive daily based on your trustworthiness. So in other words:
Joe has made reliable payments/non-chargebacks so we bump the amount of his bitcoins to 80 percent so on and so on thus he receives more. All this is already plugged in.
If we find someone who isn't as reliable they are given a different scale of trustworthiness.
Your feedback is invaluable FreeMoney thanks!
