Not sure what they trade, though Tongue
I'm starting to offer Bitcoin eCurrency exchange services through my new website http://www.bitcoinfx.cz.cc/

I'm also looking into offering Bitcoin users a web based Forex API to day trade the BTCUSD currency pair in the future. However, I first need to generate enough Bitcoins to act as the broker Cool

We are selling 'indulgences' just like the Roman Catholic Church used to. Just kidding.

Utilizing someone's exchange service would be nice. We are accepting donations to start, and if someone wanted us to link back to their site (links or banners), or promote their exchange we would certainly do that for some BitCoins. We are associated with PNNAC.ORG, a private freedom-based society that may also be interested in the same things. Their contact info is on the site.

Let's start some dialogue and see where it takes us. I'll check out the existing exchanges and if they look reasonable I'll contact them.
This will be what makes bitcoin successful, being able to exchange it for goods & services(not just an exchange service).

Virtual currency (nothing like bitcoin) can become successfull in being accepted for real goods & services, it just takes a little time. Qcoin was popular here in China but is being put down by the Chinese central bank.

See here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tencent_QQ#Q_coin and here

Well I'm in China, for things like getting documents translated to Chinese and maybe some goods (starting with cheaper items) I can post. I also have access to plenty of poor students who I might be able to convince to contribute their time (for programming, website design, logo design etc.) for bitcoins.

I myself am an English teacher so I haven't much to offer as a remote service.

Hi, one thing just came to my mind and I want to share the idea with you guys.

Is there any free/cheap software or CMS for building an online auction house like ebay ?

I really like the idea of eBay with BTC Smiley

EDIT: ok, found some stuff here http://www.hotscripts.com/category/php/scripts-programs/auctions/, maybe i will set something up, hmm ...
I have started an experimental service for anonymous storage using encfs, sshfs and TOR:

Please let me know what you think  Smiley
you should state some info about your service on the page.
couldn't find anything about up/download speeds or traffic limits.

Thank you for your interest! My server sits on a 100MBit network, but I guess the bandwidth is somewhat limited by TOR, so it's "unlimited". Actually, the 1GB "limit" isn't enforced for this reason either Smiley

While I will do my best to keep my server on line, I of course don't expect anyone to trust me, and I therefore suggest that other people set up similar services and let people have multiple backups at different places (maybe combined with unionfs-fuse or similar).

I of course can't compete with dropbox etc, but this should be an excellent place to back up sensitive (your encrypted bitcoin wallet?) data limited in size.

I am interested in real goods exchange for BITCOIN

I am looking for Corn, Malt (Hopped or not), Malted wheat, barley and rye

I am going to "mix my labor" with these resources to generate a product that I will accept bitcoins in exchange for...

I know the e-trade aspect is the easy link to increase the usage and therefore value of this exchange product, but without a real product exchange, you will be hard pressed to gain the widespread usage for stable value and common usage...
I will send you physical comic books for your bitcoins. I'll try to work out a more formal system in the future, but for now you can pm me your interests or contact details and I'll let you know what I have that might fit and we can make a deal.
I would like to offer my services in exchange for Bitcoins. I am a master certified mechanic, and can offer a help desk style phone in service for anyone stuck trying to fix their car and needs some help.

PM me if your interested.

steve-
I have 244 Travian Gold that I am willing to trade for bitcoins. They are transferable to *.se servers only.

I will edit this post if I trade them.
I am planning on getting a dedicated website for this, maybe a tor hidden service, but anyway.

I am a university student and I highly believe in free education, so I will be gradually uploading the notes from all of my classes so that the general public can become more educated. This is just the beginning of my notes, and as I am a psychology major, the next upload sprees will be specializing more in psychology with the higher level courses.

I am not going to charge anything, however, bitcoin donations would be appreciated.

It would be infinitely more so If I could find the BTC Rate....
I emailed support and asked them. (I've been a customer for 4 years. I was also the one who suggested that they accept BCs.)

They told me that they are matching New Liberty Standard's BC/USD rate for the time being.

I sent them a payment today and I received a credit. Looks like it works. Wink
So their unlimited service is $9.99 a mo (correct?)

That would equate to:

$9.99 * 146.22 BTC/$

1458.54 BTC/mo.

Unless there are people local to me that wish to purchase my consumer goods for BTC the marginal use of BTC does not exceed $ for me yet....
I pay $9.99 for a local phone number. Been a customer for 4 years. It works great.

I also use them to connect my mobile calls. (Mobile calls here are seriously an arm+leg with our local provider.)

Oh, and I also resell some of their stuff to friends to make a few extra bucks.

I know I'm probably not local, but what are the consumer goods you are selling?
Hehe, that was my idea you thief Tongue
But there was a lack of customers, so I closed my service.

Good luck with that Smiley
You'll get customers eventually. Stay patient! Smiley

Actually, we just polished up our Bitcoin integration. Payments into our system are fully automated now.

I have recently revised my Liberty Reserve Exchange Service website - BitcoinFX - http://www.bitcoinfx.cz.cc/ I will soon be funding and maintaining the availability of both BTC and LR at a 100% ratio against the exchange rate.

I have chosen to use a http://www.nic.cz.cc/ domain because it is purposefully obscure ! It is a paid domain for 2 years and is automatically renewable. Its an extremely inexpensive method for hosting a domain with SSL support and Privacy Protect. ( Less than $5 for 2 years ) I have full control over my A Record etc. and the web host is very stable. In the future I will be adding SSL and the LR and Bitcoin API's to make the exchange service 100% automated, as long as their are available funds.

I'm also advertising in Bitcoin in Money Share Forums / e-currency Investment Forums

http://www.moneyshareforum.com/index.php?showtopic=3513 - Bitcoin P2p Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin P2P Cryptocurrency - Free - Open Source Software Project !

Whilst I would not recommend 'investing' in most of the 'sites' on this forum. Searching through the posts and links will give some of you an incite into just how popular e-currencies are with this type of community. This type of activity makes up a massive percentage of e-currency transactions and I consider it very relevant in the successful future of Bitcoin.

Thank you. Cool
For those of you that don't already know; most of these 'investments' are ponzi schemes.
For those of you that don't already know; most of these 'investments' are ponzi schemes.

Indeed they are and you should exercise extreme caution before even considering 'investing' and also view most HYIP's as a game of chance.

I can be considered a trusted admin and my Private Investment Club opportunity is intentionally 'low level' and 'low risk'.

Sabunir had expressed interest in the original BitcoinFX Private Investment Club opportunity, so I have offered a 100% free share, for my usage of the banner designs. I will offer more free shares to Bitcoin Forum members in the future.

Please understand that what I'm effectively doing is 'backing' Bitcoins with my profitable Forex Trading abilities, as well as, creating an interest and demand for Bitcoins with existing e-currency users at the same time. I have 'backed' both projects with $1000 LR to avoid any issues.

This is a much more logical approach than just offering an 'exchange' service where you are effectively just 'giving away' USD or EUR for 'digital tokens' ...

However, I fully understand your concerns.

Awesome! I'll add a "Trade" page on the bitcoin.org main site, where we can list btc-accepting services.
hello

i found these urls while surfing on i2p:

mybitcoin.i2p (resolves to nwpqc65o333ifqq7wqovo2ito5y3ca6rfygz3p6pusau26t6tpca.b32.i2p)
xqzfakpeuvrobvpj.onion (on tor. they advertise this url in the login area)
mybitcoin.com (loads the same site from the public internet. they use cacert for ssl.)

(some sort of web-based wallet for bitcoin)

privacyshark.com

(sells domain names for bitcoins)

That mybc thing is nice for non-geeks. I signed up last night to try it out. This is something I can setup for my 'ol pappy and he'd be able to actually use it. Tongue
I would like to point out then that http://vekja.net has always provided a Free web based Bitcoin account even better than the mybitcoin service mentioned above (in addition to the non-free Email and Web service that I announced earlier).

I should have announced this separately before, as there is such great value in a Bitcoin Web App. The value is not just for Grandpa, but is also for anyone who wants to use Bitcoin on a mobile device (or any platform where there is no client yet available).

If you haven't done so already, please come check out the https://Vekja.net Bitcoin web app. Registration is free and does not require an email like the mybitcoin service currently does.

If you have any questions or suggestions, just use the built in messaging system to send a message to admin. I will be glad to help.

For the record: I hereby promise that the Vekna.net Bitcoin account will always remain free (that includes spam free). This was always my intent from the beginning.
I signed up for a vekja free Bitcoin account. Very nice. It is very simple. Almost too simple for my tastes tho. :/ I mean, I'm sure it works as expected but the interface is really lacking features.

MyBitcoin has some nice stuff like payment history, the ability to change your Bitcoin address (which I totally need btw), some basic statistics, and an addressbook (very handy; try typing in a long ugly Bitcoin address from a Blackberry or iPhone -- no thanks).

The need for an email address mystifies me also. I wonder why they require that. Service announcements?

Edit: I see a transaction history page. I must have scrolled right past it. The interface is all on one page??

Edit 2: Looks like MyBitcoin can do payment notes too (I wonder if/how this works to/from Bitcoin and MyBitcoin).
Yes, there is a transaction history.

I was always planning an address book. I just wanted to break up the interface into multiple pages first.

I will also add the ability you request for creating new (and multiple) addresses.

Thank you for the feedback and suggestions madhatter2!
I just added a second line to my graphs showing the closing price of bitcoins at the Bitcoin Market.
Hmm.. looks like MBC has PGP-signed email payment notifications. Also looks like they don't require the email address to signup. Maybe they read this forum?

Hey! *waves @ MBC's owners* Sign up and tell us your plans! Tongue
Haha! I actually have some of my elderly family members using MBC now. Tongue

Maybe mum should get 9,000 coins for Mother's day! Cheesy

I run the MMO A Tale in the Desert. We charge $13.95/month for the game, and pay about $0.74 in merchant and gateway fees.

We'll now accept Bitcoins as an alternate payment method. The price per month is 2000 BTC, which according to the exchange is a discount right now.

Instructions:
Visit http://www.atitd.com and download the game client. Native Windows, Linux and OSX versions are available.
Install + Run the client, and create a trial character.
If you like the game, send 2000 BTC to: 17CJvRrNdqSPN3Zs2dWfNY6GoCiMRfNG2T to activate your account.
In the message field, include your character name and shard; I'll then credit you for a month of gameplay.
Right now this is done manually, so the lag could be anywhere from minutes to the next morning.

Teppy
Teppy, just so you know, you can't include a message if you send to a bitcoin address, only if you send to an IP address.  The way we usually do it is we issue a new address to each person we ask to send us money so that we know it was that person who sent it.
Can I just butt in with a question on why that is? To me it seems that if Bitcoin uses public-key cryptography to transfer ownership of the coins, it should be a trivial matter to include a short message that is only readable by the recipient.
Hmm - is there any text field associated with an address based transaction? It does make accepting Bitcoins a bit more cumbersome. Would including such a text field as part of the protocol compromise anonymity somehow?

Hypothetically, a short text message could be encoded into transactions by charging, say, 2000-2000.999999 Bitcoins and encoding the text portion in the fractional part of the amount.

Or does that solve a problem that doesn't exist?

Is there already a protocol in place to say "make me a new address to send BTC to" ?
You can create new addresses all you want.. the way most people are doing this is they generate a new address for the user and display it to them.  When payment is received to that address it credits the user.  You can just generate a new address for each transaction, like a transaction ID essentially.  Link2VOIP automated it all and some others have as well, simply by using the built in JSON-RPC functionality.

Satoshi would have to address the other questions about including messages..

Almost but not quite.  Bitcoin uses EC-DSA, which can only do digital signing, not encryption.  RSA can do both, but I didn't use it because it's an order of magnitude bigger and would have been impractical.
