I'm looking at some open-source Bitcoin plugins/modules and they assume bitcoind is running locally, which is not always an option.
Are there any publicly available bitcoind servers which can be used for the purpose of receiving transaction data? Thanks.


Edit:
Here is exactly what is needed:
  • Configure your bitcoind server information.
Now instead of 'localhost', a remote server. How can this be done?

https://www.mybitcoin.com/ and https://mtgox.com/ both have merchant payment interfaces.

There are a number of hosting services advertising in the Marketplace section and in the wiki.  You might ask them if they'd be willing to run bitcoind.

Thanks, I think direct access is required. I'm pretty sure MyBitcoin will not work.

Thanks for the idea; Looking for something already up and running and 'trusted to be stable'.

my best guess is gavin's bitcoin faucet address + port
that machine is damn public and he wrote once that he has 40+ peers
my way of thinking: if he runs a service, he's most probably running a daemon as well

the other way around is try to look at the way a client is bootstrapped
the irc channels of bitcoin network for sure return a bitcoind address.

I understand what you want- I don't think such a service exists, unfortunately. Someone should get on this Wink

You want to send bitcoins to someone else's wallet?!

OP wants a hosted, private instance of bitcoind to use instead of running bitcoind on their own server. It's really not that hard guys, figure it out.

If it was not difficult to figure out, rather very intelligent people here would not get at least 3 different versions of what OP wanted. OP is rather extremely vague. I wonder if OP himself knows what he wants.

Seems rather clear to me, if phrased oddly.

+1, OP was perfectly clear

I'll temporarily host one for you if you just need it for testing purposes and it can wait until tomorrow

OK, We've established a lack of "publicly available bitcoind servers", with the exception of BitcoinFaucet which might be an excellent idea.
Thank you for all the ideas, everyone.

No big hurry, thanks for offering a test server davout, I'm still thinking of spending a couple more hours on trying to get bitcoind on CentOS 5.x



By The Way:
I'm using CentOS 5.x (i.e. Recent BTC Tutorial Here)

Are Boost and Berkeley DB both 'expected' to work on a VPS?  (i.e Is there something with either that requires actual root/kernel access)
I'll try again and catch the exact error messages, but last attempt was a big waste of time.

Nice looking site and useful service, thanks.
I would really like to run my own, at least for testing, but Centos can be a tough set-up for Bitcoin.
I'll probably try that tutorial (mentioned above) again, if I can find spare time.

Good service though F4C3, many of the new people might not want to play SysAdmin.

Same question as in other thread:  who are you, and why should we trust you with storing money?

I guess it depends on how you use it. If it an be configured to pipe your coins into an offline or remote wallet, why not. Also if you plan to use it for smaller amounts you can afford to loose. If on the other hand you want to put your life savings on there.... That's another question

I would love to use that service, unfortunately it appears to be down for some days now!
