I added a new feature to easywallet.org, which allows sending bitcoins to any email address. The process

1. when sending, a new easywallet instance is created with the funds, and the secret link is sent to the receiver
2. If the receiver doesn't visit the secret URL within 2 weeks, funds are returned to the sender wallet

This protects against email delivery errors, spam filters etc.

To create new wallet: https://easywallet.org/
FAQ: https://easywallet.org/faq

Also, first localization was added (finnish). I plan to add more languages. I'm most interested about countries/languages which could benefit from bitcoin most - 3rd world countries, eg. Pakistan. If anyone can help/give advice with this, send me a message!

This is a nice feature for introducing someone to bitcoin. Simply send them a small amount of money and tell them to bookmark the URL and they're in! Due to the insecurity of email I would then advise them to create a brand new wallet and transfer the money over.

I like the dual currency option/display - very nice for making conversions without having to do the math in your head. This would be good for InstaWallet as well. I would love to see both services flourish. Banner ads as a revenue model looks like a good idea - I see InstaWallet has already incorporated this. Great job guys!

Thanks for the feedback!

I added the email sending option to the API - now it is possible to mass-email bitcoins with a simple script Wink Maybe I will start spamming bitcoins to my friends later on.

No it is also possible to create wallets with arbitrary ID:s. This feature will be only available through API, since it is too easy to create wallet ID:s with too little entropy.

https://easywallet.org/en/api

As for the business model, I will probably use banner ads, but I have also some freemium features in my mind. But I have think about it.

Edit: have to add, I really appreciate what the instawallet guys are doing, and don't want to compete with them. I just thought that instawallet was closing down (at one time they announced it), and wanted also some additional features. So I created my own.
