I started freebitcoins.org last year when I got bitten by the bitcoin bug. We did a lot of marketing and promotion on the site, had a couple of employees, and ended up getting about 10,000 users in the first month!

Then when mtgox got hacked, when mybitcoin.com ran away, and when the price of bitcoins crashed, we lost faith in bitcoin and were overwhelmed by the volatility and just put the site on the backburner and moved on with life.

Then in December we tried to restart the site with a contest to give away causacious coins ... and then our coder got hired by a big company and we were left floating alone in the ocean of forgotten bitcoin dreams again.

So now I see that bitcoin is coming back, Coinbase just got YCombinator funding, the price is back up to $7+ and people are still using freebitcoins.org even though we haven't really given it any love in almost a year.

Freebitcoins.org has 30,000 members now, and still gets about 10,000 visits a month! I was SHOCKED when I cracked open the google analytics account and saw that.

We have about 300 people requesting bitcoin payouts totalling about 50 bitcoins in total. I really want to restart the site, pay everyone out, and get a new captain who can steer the site in the right direction!

If anyone wants to be part of the re-launch of the site, please reply here ... we're hoping to find a bitcoin evangelist with coding skills who knows a bit about internet marketing and email marketing.

We are willing to give a % of the company away to the right person.

Hey thanks for writing in, we'll definitely entertain serious offers. We put just under $10,000 of our own money into the development of the site, and it's revenue generating, so if the offer makes sense then yeah we could talk about it.
