I was over at Paypal, and noticed their new add for Bump on Android which also advertises sending and receiving money via Paypal over Bump.  This makes sense, since all that Paypal really needs to send money from one user to another is their registered email address, which is something that Bump can certainly do.

And if they can do it, we sure as hell can too.  Any Android hackers here familiar with Bump?  Are there extra fields that could be used to transfer a Bitcoin address?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Bump can send just about any information. It is a neat concept.

No reasons you couldn't send a bitcoin address or an entire transaction. (One of those signed with the any receiver setting.)

The problem wth bumb is anonimity, but to have it as an option to exchange bitcoins would be great.

There is an "any" setting?  How does that work?

There is a transaction flag that you can use to sign a transaction without signing the to address. I forget what the enum is called.

I think it is used for paying transaction fees. Because when you set up and send the transaction, you can't know who will generate the block and get to claim the transaction fee.
