So I had a site, http://www.cryptobucket.com that was an old doge faucet.  I decided to turn it into a social network for crypto people.

It's really basic right now.  I'll be adding a bunch of crypto-ish features to it such as pricing and info as well as cleaning up or adding usability features.

I figure it might give people a place to network with other crypto junkies without all the clutter of everything else you get on sites like fb & twitter.

Check it out!  There will be a random draw from the user profiles (that have profile pictures and posts) for a $100 worth of crypto to be given away.

If you like the idea, awesome!  If not, please don't spoil the fun.  If nothing else this is just something for me to dabble with.   Wink

I like the idea of a social network for people who all like and are interested in bitcoin. It could be a place where people who are invested in and are interested in bitcoin can 'gather' and discuss things as they relate to bitcoin.

I think I would call it bitcoindiscuss.....unless you wanted to use a simpler term for discuss, maybe you could replace discuss with talk, so you would call it bitcointalk

Great idea! It will be supplement of bitcointalk. Cryptocoiners could go there to socialize their activities about cryptocurrencies. Bitcointalk as a forum is sharing and commenting everything published by every member to the public in the forum. The people who go social network as twitter could twitter their own, retweet others and follow the one they like.

Consider putting your feature list somewhere.  I don't like the idea of signing up just to see what you offer.   Undecided

Interesting project, but needs to be converted to MVC. i have sent you a PM. i'm sure that i'm not the only one who would be interesting in participate in working on your project. you could create a private repo on bitbucket for us to work in our own trees if you are interested. I could drop a few hours a day on it. I can dev the full stack but most notably i'm a fairly highly touted UI/UX designer.

There are many paranoids around here, you know. I'm not on facebook nor on any social network, and I'll never join any service like that. Sorry to tell you this, but this forum fully satisfies all my social desires.

Completely understandable!   This isn't a "gotta change his mind" reply, just an FYI. The ONLY required info on CryptoBucket is an email address which any paranoid person could create a throwaway account in a couple minutes.  Not trying to be facebook where the goal is to build some giant social graph of sell-able data.  Just trying to give like minded people a space where they will have many more crypto related features than the simple machines forum with a title "bitcoin forum".

Thanks for getting in touch.  At this point I'm not interested in branching out with other developers, I have a few devs I can use already.  But thanks for the offer!

What tool did you use to create it?   We've got a social networking tool on our site, but are using "Social Engine" for it.  Wish there was something a lot better out there, that is also integratable with WordPress.  Any suggestions?

Great idea and looks very clean.

About 1 second for me. You might want to consider giving up the dialup service for something more up to date. lol

@OP It looks good so far but you don't have many users yet and that's kind of required to make the site valuable. The giveaways are a good idea. That might bring some users. If you can ban Bittburger I'll use it. jk

Hahaha!  Good one.  Yeah I don't see why we would want to get less formal than Bitcointalk, unless you really wanted small groups of people to circljerk even harder than Bitcointalk

I think having a lot of giveaways will bring in a lot of account farmers who will create a bunch of accounts whose only purpose is to claim the giveaways. This will reduce the value of each account to the site as advertisers will not want to pay as much on a per impression/per click basis
