Hello,

We're launching today a questions and answers site powered with Bitcoins.

All questions posted must have a reward in bitcoins attached, and the reward goes to the person who replies it correctly, according to the asker.

You can access it at http://www.bitquestion.com.

Would love to hear suggestions, comments or questions about the service.

Feel free to start asking your hard questions there Smiley

Watch our video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=oCtjnPOsngg

---
EDIT : now the site accepts zero-confirmation deposits! yay! Smiley
EDIT : active users can now vote up/down on answer proposals
EDIT : our commission changed. Now we charge a flat 0.05 BTC per question.
EDIT : Improved notifications system : now you can follow Tags, and also be notified on every new question.
EDIT : ZERO FEES - now the site won't charge any fee from you, no matter if you are asking or replying questions.
EDIT : New layout, now featuring a video!

A couple questions and comments...

1) Do you take a commission off the amount we send?
2) What if a question never gets answered do you get your funds back or can you transfer to another question you asked or will ask?

3) If you make an account there is no way to enter your bitcoin address so if you answer questions you can just keep using the same address with out keep typing it in.

1) we're taking a 10% commission when you ask a question. (eg. you provide BTC 1 for a question, it will have 0.9 BTC attached.)
2) in the future we plan to make it possible to withdraw a question with no "good" reply proposals. for now the question will just sit there. we do this to protect the people who is answering.
3) nice suggestion! we'll add a feature for remembering the last bitcoin address used to withdraw funds, so you don't have to input it all the times.

i like your idea, but 10% won't last in this environment.

i'm only speculating, but competition will soon drive it down to 1% or less.

if the password is too short on the reg form, you should re-populate the email and login fields so i don't have to re-type them.

on the account page, it might be nice to show any unconfirmed deposits, if you can see them on the network.

My account

Your ballance is 0 BTC.

also, there's no ball in balance Smiley

edit: actually, even after 1 confirmation, my balance isn't showing up... how many confirmations are you waiting for?

haha, yeah, they said 3 was enough to be safe but I ended up leaving two.

In the future we'll implement zero-confirmation.

will fix the duplicate comment bug, we didn't have that in our tests here.

It seems like there should be a formula that could calculate the average cost of successfully implement a double spending attack for a given number of confirmations based on how much computing power it would require.

Then it would be possible to determine the optimum number of confirmations for a given transaction size.

AbelsFire,

we can implement zero-confirmations. If we detect a double spending attack, we just cancel the question using the non-existent funds.

My account

Your ballance is -0.00050000 BTC. Withdraw

not saying this is a bug, just showing it in case it's unintentional.

so you paid the tx fee for me, and then charged it to my account, letting it go into debit.

@bayb.tc yeah, it was intentional, I'm letting the users pay the txs. That's because you can ask a question with even 0.001, and I wanted to prevent spam question attacks.
