Someone doesn't like The Bitcoin Bus. It is heavily under attack.

Someone is DDoSing your website? Sad
There seems to be a bunch of children that live here and have fun doing useless things like that to Bitcoin-related websites and services.

Hopefully your security is up to snuff.

Well the access log is going wild, Don't worry I did not put the bus website on my most secure infrastructure which WalletBit for instance is running on. So no worries there. But maybe I should up the resources a bit for this particular server.

Wait what, how can one page be completely unresponsive, but other pages on the same server are working fine...?

The front page does a lot of database connections and the sub pages doesn't

I don't know how to promote it even more, I did my best to inform everyone about this noble endeavour. Any ideas?

Is it still possible to get to the front page? I keep getting redirected to the get_pixels.php page.

Maybe the idea should be scaled down and relaunched as getting a small billboard on a bus or at a bus stop.

Or how about making a game where ads are displayed behind some coins that you click on or hover over clear and some of the coins pay out bitcoins? I think the free bitcoins sites seem to survive quite a while.

Seems like a good opportunity to do some bitcoin advertising. Maybe we could all pitch in for a large ad for bitcoin itself, prominently displayed on the side? It would be shame to have this filled up with random ads for bitcoin-related projects without a central bitcoin logo and something like a weusecoins.com or bitcoin.org link.

Best idea ever!, you will even have my support on that one.

I can keep the pitch in safe on this address: 1MjyWLY1Rvx7rtqKwymA6Mo1gXF1UaFB8G   The address is hosted on WalletBit, so it's safe.

Until we decide for a go on the giant Bitcoin Ad.

I fail to see how anything shy of a brain wallet or encrypted paper wallet is SAFE.

This is a brilliant idea, please post lots of pics if it happens! Also, seeing as the exchange rate just went through the roof, you should probably hurry while your collected BTC are most valuable Smiley I wish I had a business to advertise Tongue

Looks like the site is down right now. Does going to it show the outlines of the bus and logos of CoinDL and others?

Hi Kris,

unfortunately, if you want something to happen, it's always up to yourself. If you want this to happen, then you make it happen.

It's hard and though to be the driving force behind any project. Simply advertising it a little bit, and then hoping and/or thinking it will happen by itself is setting yourself up for failure.

If you really want it to happen, then you work hard, and exhaust all possible methods to gain traction and recognition for the project.

Did you send an e-mail to all merchants at this list : https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade ?

This project is dead if you leave it 'to the people'.

I still don't really see how a million tiny images that are too small to see when a bus whizzes past will help us at all.    One large bitcoin advertisement makes way more sense to me, but there you go.

And on that remark, here is another example.


This example has just one big advertisement, not hundreds of small ones. There is no comparison between your project and the above bus.

Maybe you should consider just making  one large advertisement, on one side of the bus only?

Exactly.  Then people will know what the hell we're advertising Smiley

Sorry but I'll say it again.  Selling pixels will be nice and lucrative for the person running this, but will do nothing for Bitcoin.

I still have the funds that was given towards this, a total of 3.59073763. I'm still keeping them safe until we reach our goal.

But one big bitcoin advertisement is the way to go.

Advertising Bitcoin really is the way to go. But Advertising mainstream is ex-pensive, and it will be hard if not impossible for us to quantify the return.

But it's definitely thinking in the right direction.

Find a celebrity who speaks positive about BTC and it,s benefits in the media is priceless and will be effective or a big online  company how adopts BTC first could be win win situation.

Most of the forum people have what in comen? IT or TECH were whould u spend ur BTC directly on.?

Except for BMR en SR like websites there isn,t much to spend BTC on YET, if more legal companies could start excepting BTC like coinabul ect. does we have to....

Write a simpel guide on "how to easy implement BTC acceptence into ur business"
some easy to follow guide even for noobs but understandable for bussines people..
