Thread: Payment in Bitcoins?

  1. #1

    Default Payment in Bitcoins?

    Hi, I would like the option to be paid in Bitcoins.
    Why not?

    Seconding this. Bitcoin offers API interfaces for easy integrations and due to it's decentralized nature it cannot suddenly vanish like epassporte or egold.
    Also, there are tons of exchanges which convert your Bitcoins into any (e)-currency you want. Not to mention it's free and there are no fees to pay.

    Bumping this

    I've been using Bitcoins for almost a year now and it works great.

    What are the problems with implementing it?

    Because there are a whole bunch of things that come up when Linkbucks wants to add a payment processor.

    There is no company behind Bitcoin, so nobody who can cause troubles.

    You simply create a wallet and are ready to receive and send money; several exchanges allow to convert them to whatever currency you want (and vice versa). There's already a full featured JSON-RPC based API to automate payment processing (including a testnet) too.

    I don't see any problems there. Unless you want to say that LB's backend is written in such a way that making some changes "can be a real headache and provoke several complications".

    Clearly you've never run a large international money-based site, Hugin. It has nothing to do with development.
    The colossal misunderstanding of our time is the assumption that insight will work with people who are unmotivated to change. Communication does not depend on syntax, or eloquence, or rhetoric, or articulation but on the emotional context in which the message is being heard. People can only hear you when they are moving toward you, and they are not likely to when your words are pursuing them. Even the choices words lose their power when they are used to overpower. Attitudes are the real figures of speech. - Edwin H. Friedman

    Well, then what's the problem?

    I do not recall anyone ever saying there was a problem on our end ?
    (Perhaps you can link me to that statement ?)
    It appears the only problem here is with you ...

    Linkbucks offers two (2) payment processing services :
    ● Paypal
    ● Alertpay

    Now if you're not able to meet the requirements of those two mentioned processors then perhaps Linkbucks isn't right for you ...

    There will be no other processors added any time soon ...

    Is that clear enough for you ? ...
    Or does it need to be spelled out in fucking braille ?

    Have a great life and thanks for stopping by !

    The easiest way to put it is, politics and regulations.

    I thought bit coin was only used by those secret people who hide and hackers.
