Here is an idea for a web app that would work great with bitcoin payments.

You would need to tell the web app a URL and upload four corners of free selections.
All the text in the rectangle formed by:
- Bottom-right corner of A
- Bottom-left corner of B
- Up-right corner of C
- Up-left corner of D

would be recognized with OCR and retrieved to:
thewebappURL.com/yourbitcoinadresstosendpayments

every time you called that page, it would echo the text of that dynamic or static part of the page.



Would echo:
"
JOIN TODAY
Open an account, deposit £10* or more and you will be
entitled to a 100% bonus of your qualifying deposit up to a
maximum of £200*. More details ¦ Join Now "

Do you understand my idea?
You would then need to send micropayments from the bitcoin address of that URL provided to have the service being working.

Do you understand the idea? A web app that would use OCR to recognize text in rectangle area constrained by four selection images of that site provided.
Bitcoins would be used to make it more cooll!!!

Would be great there was a torrent file of all referenced materials of the paper: "How to Build Time-Lock Encryption" by Tibor Jager. And having its magnet link published on bitcoin blockchain!

I have no idea what you are trying to explain. Is this supposed to be a game you are trying to make? What's the point of the 4 corners?

The four corners are anchors. You provide the URL and these four images will make delimitation.
Each of the images will correspond to a point. A, B, C and D make a rectangle.
All text inside that area is read using OCR and echoed to your personalized URL. You pay for the service with micro-payments of bitcoin.

It's not a game. It is a web scrapper that uses OCR and four images to tell the corners of the target area.

Is this right?

You're talking about making a webpage, that has a section, work like a QR code, you can scan to use to send money to?

If that's the case, you're just skipping the QR code that's normally used, by making the website have it's own specially designed one that doesn't look like a QR code, but just a normal webpage. You're only skipping one step, that isn't that big of a deal.

Is there more to it than that?

i think he is trying to explain RS feeds, or something similar. where you pay to receive certain information from a page.

i think remotemass has either sold his account or been smoking something special, because he used to be able to talk with better english then this thread is showing

Yes, along the lines of RSS feeds.
It's not a game. It is a web scrapper that uses OCR and four images to tell the corners of the target area.
You could get the results in JSON, RSS, etc...

I've got a good bit of experience coding custom web scrapers (mostly custom scripts in Node using Phantom.JS to simulate DOM and iterating through elements in standardized results)...

There are a ton of free web scraper extensions for Chrome out there:
http://webscraper.io/

They have a much higher degree of control over the data pulled and the output format...

Why reinvent the wheel as a square? Get what I'm saying?

Also, what use is BTC in web scraping (besides paying for custom jobs)?
