Microcash - General Discussion

Microcash is a new form of cryptographic currency, currently under development. Bitcoin has been a genius proof-of-concept and proof-of-adoption digital commodity. The Microcash project hopes to vastly improve upon the distributed cryptographic currency idea with numerous innovations that current crypto-currencies cannot implement due to the nature of the bitcoin protocol.

What's the best Bitcoin ecommerce site to sell an album on?

I've recorded a CD and want to sell it online for Bitcoins.
I want people to be able to pay whatever amount they want for it, but they can only pay with Bitcoin.
There's sites like CoinDL and Yumcoin, but I don't know which is best.
What's the best ecommerce site to use? Why?

Moronic Monday - It's your weekly stupid questions thread. Please upvote for visibility. I receive no karma for this post.

Hey /SilkRoad , it is time for Moronic Monday!
Post your question - stupid or otherwise - here to get an answer. Anyone can post a question and the community as a whole is invited and encouraged to provide an answer. Many questions get submitted late each week that don't get a lot of action, so if your question didn't get answered before, feel free to post it again.
I do ask that you refrain from abusing noobs in this thread. Feel free to link to guides, wikis, forums, other subreddits (particularly /bitcoin and /drugs [though many on the Bitcoin subreddit don't take real kindly to SR]), or the FAQ, though.
Link semi-related:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5aeukmFc3sU
Also, I wanted to mention that scam attempts are ongoing in this subreddit. It's mostly the same guy, probably from China (based on the domain registrar) posting links to a fake Bitcoin exchange with a similar name to a legitimate bitcoin ecommerce site. The site claims to accept Paypal and debit/credit cards for Bitcoin, which no legitimate Bitcoin exchange does directly. He's using a rotating array of obscure URL shorteners to evade the automatic sitewide spam algorithm. His usernames are usually, but not always, gibberish, and usually, but not always, only used to post one comment or link. Some of you report it when you see it, and I'm thankful for that. Downvotes don't put things in the moderation queue, so please always report it when you see it. I delete and ban it when I see it and I know other mods do as well. There are other scams, but that's by far and away the most common one.
Another thing I want to mention is that you should never use onion.to for SR-related tasks. You lose all anonymity by going that route. Your ISP and/or your university IT department can tell exactly what you're looking at if you use it. Even if you visit onion.to using Tor, malicious Tor exist nodes could be used to compromise your anonymity. The Tor Browser Bundle is a seriously easy thing to install and use, and Orweb/Orbot is not much worse.

Anyone interested in helping with a Bitcoin processing website for Mega

I have received permission to become a reseller of premium services on Mega and am allowed to accept Bitcoin as the only form of payment. I already have a prime domain name and the business side of things mostly figured out but I would love someone with experience building a Bitcoin ecommerce site to partner with. Is there any interest? Terms can be discussed privately.
I will also appreciate any tips from those of you with experience but that don't want to get involved!

I am starting to sell my bitcoins as retail items in a southamerican ecommerce site.

Prices are higher here in Chile due taxes when buying cryptocurrencies from brokers. But we are offering the lowest prices in the site and we are trying with different formats as retail products which people is familiar with. We know the site is still amateur, but we added a lot of payment methods and we are working on a better site. This is my way to show to the rest of the world that anyone can work as a bank today thanks to Bitcoin :)
Our site is www.criptomonedaschile.com

What plugins or tools would work best to make a Bitcoin-accepting ecommerce site?

Hi, what plugins would you recommend to make a Bitcoin/crypto accepting ecommerce WP website?
I'm looking for something pretty simple and easy to setup. I don't really need a million options and/or a million ways the plugin can fail - I don't want other basic plugins, like cache and security, to cause it to break.
Thanks

Does a Bitcoin-Cashback loyalty program make an ecommerce site a crypto custodian legally?

A friend of mine runs an ecommerce website and wants to start giving Bitcoin to its customers as a cashback program. For each purchase, the customer would accrue Bitcoin (just like airline miles, or cashback rewards) and then it would get sent to the customer once it reaches some threshold, or according to some pre-determined schedule. The question is, would this legally be considered "custody" of cryptocurrency since it is building up in their accounts until they receive it? Or is it technically just accounts receivable or considered debt until the payment is made? Does it make a difference if the customers accrue USD and simply receive it in Bitcoin vs if Bitcoin accrues in the first place and not USD? Customers cannot deposit Bitcoin in any way, they just earn it as Cashback. How is this viewed legally? Thank you. Located in the United States.

Could Bitcoin make it feasible to sell items anywhere, anyhow without traditional ecommerce sites?

I'm new here, so I apologize if this is considered basic info to most. From what I understand about Bitcoin, though, anyone can pay anyone without access to personal information (technically, you can do this with PayPal but that requires an email address, so you'd need a dedicated email address). You also don't need to set up a secure site to transfer the money. This leads me to believe that Bitcoin may be a feasible way to sell items to strangers without setting up an ecommerce site.
In particular, since I work in social media, I wonder if we may see a point where social profiles are used as a storefront. People could include their bitkey info somewhere in their profile and accept payments through the social profile, without setting up an external shop.
Am I missing a key component here or is this potentially viable?

How many people are actually purchasing using bitcoin on ecommerce sites?

I'm interested in knowing if there are any legit numbers, forecasts etc.. that shows how much people are actually spending using bitcoin. I saw somewhere that Overstock sold around $126K on its first day, but that was back in 2014. Anyone have recent data?

I added bitcoin to my ecommerce site, it was far easier than I thought!

I used BitPay, and thought it would be much more difficult! The only two critiques I have with BitPay though are that it needs shipping options that change based on price totals, and when you add multiple new items to your catalog you have to go back and forth between two pages.
Here is the address for those interested: http://www.preparedsecurity.com

WIth CryptoSpend, your options for purchasing using BitCoins & LiteCoins are limitless. Stop looking for eCommerce websites that accept cryptocurrencies; shop on any sites you desire.

Tortuga: The lightweight, non-custodial, self-hosted payment gateway you've been waiting for!

I'm very pleased to announce the availability of my payment-gateway project: Tortuga.
Tortuga lets you sell a digital file for cryptocurrency. All you need to be able to do is run a docker container (I run mine on a little VPS from digital ocean).
Benefits:
Current Limitations:
Supported cryptocurrencies:
You can read more about it at https://github.com/unyieldinggrace/tortuga
The deployment instructions on the github page should be sufficient for technical users. I'll try to make time to write a step-by-step setup tutorial on read.cash at some stage (or if someone else wants to do it, that might be a good way to score tips!).
Motivation:
I made this payment gateway for idealistic reasons. I wrote a book called Taxation is Slavery: The Biblical Case for Libertarian Politics. Among many other things, this book argues that fiat money-printing is a form of immoral counterfeiting, and that we should attempt to secede from the fiat power structures by using cryptocurrency. To live that out, I was determined to find a way to sell the book directly to readers, completely peer-to-peer. In this way, I'm helping to "close the loop". I'm giving people something good to spend their (crypto) money on, without either them or me ever having to convert it to fiat.
The book also includes a brief sub-chapter on how the very existence of Bitcoin should force many Christians to re-evaluate the way they understand Jesus' statement about "giving to Ceasar what is Caesar's". Bitcoin has no president or king's face on it. There is no engraving of any Caesar. Thinking this through might be of interest to many Bitcoin fans :)
Ready to see it in action?
You can test out the payment gateway by seeing how I use it on my own site. Just click one of the crypto checkout buttons at https://beingbiblical.com/books/taxation-is-slavery

Introducing Bondly…

Introducing Bondly…
For us who use Decentralized Finance (DeFi) as a common term, we know it represents an enormous shift in how we transact with one another: borrowing money, exchanging currencies, how we view insurance, etc. While total assets involved in DeFi still seem to be increasing right now, there are various factors that will prevent us from growing further.
DeFi’s largest barriers for adoption
Interoperability — Right now Ethereum gas fees seem like they are always increasing and ETH 2.0 may still be 6 months or more away. We need the ability to make DeFi more accessible to individuals who can’t afford high gas prices per transaction and start including native blockchain assets that are stranded on other platforms.
Trust — Unfortunately our biggest issue is still trust. While none of us in crypto expect to know the identity of the other party, many of us just send funds to people we don’t know for vague promises of more wealth. In fact, the biggest type of fraud is still the “giveaway scam” which asks offer to send something back — but its only an offer, there is no guarantee. This is totally unsustainable.
What about doing business outside of crypto?
Ultimately, DeFi doesn’t keep going unless we create methods for non-crypto native businesses to integrate. While the community might approve sending crypto to each other without a safety in place, this will never work for 99% of online marketplaces.
So we need:
  • DeFi options on lower cost platforms
  • Trading across blockchains
  • Safer Transactions
  • More flexibility for peer to peer transactions
  • Easier methods for online marketplaces to integrate and use crypto
This is why we created Bondly.

https://preview.redd.it/5gs8v5ce1hu51.png?width=1400&format=png&auto=webp&s=fade2f7576626022460b7882f379552d44b678c7
Bondly is a brainchild of over 3 years of working in fintech digital escrow payments + love for native DeFi. Adding our cumulative 13 years of traditional financial services, 6 years of eCommerce marketing, 4 years of Ethereum blockchain development, we think this will be one of the most important next steps in DeFi.

What is Bondly?

Bondly is a trusted, transparent and portable swap protocol designed to make you into a marketplace.
Our family of trust-enabling, DeFi products are designed to be a part of your everyday buying and selling activities, giving you piece of mind for your next swap or online purchase.

BONDSWAP (BSWAP)

Similar to Binance OTC Trading Portal but directly on-chain and can be sent via any chat app using different blockchains
Wallet to Wallet trustless Over the Counter (OTC) trades that are performed by signing a smart contract. Completely portable smart link can be sent via a chat app or on your favorite social media. It will first support all ERC-20 tokens and NFT (Ethereum) then eventually
With BSWAP you can:
  • Sell a large order of a low liquidity token with no risk of slippage
  • Become your own NFT marketplace by minting the token, setting your own price, then post to your social media for your audience to buy
  • Buy assets using Debit/Credit card (using our third party partner onramp)
  • Send smart link in Telegram to someone you know or your favorite group

BOND DEX

Similar to Mooniswap but includes rewards token provided to Liquidity Providers on top of fee share
Interoperable Decentralized Exchange (DEX) thats easy to use and blockchain agnostic. Requires liquidity provider (LP) participants to pool assets for a portion of transaction fees along with rewards APY rewards. Our pricing engine will compare major cross chain swap options and will let you know the best one to use (even if its not us). Validation is done directly within your Web3 browser (with Metamask) or polkadot.js based Native Wallet.
With BOND DEX you can:
  • Trade native assets on Polkadot with USDC on Ethereum
  • Get recommendations on the cheapest bridge transaction path
  • Create your own asset pairs that otherwise might not exist

BOND PROTECT (BPROTECT)

Similar to Paypal/AliPay Express Buyer Protection combined with Escrow.com with a simple UX like Zapper.fi or Zircon
This is our most revolutionary product that we feel will have the largest impact to the eCommerce market.
PROTECT is decentralized escrow and buyer protection for customers of crypto friendly marketplaces.
  • Designed to replace all site specific crypto escrow products with an easy to use API and completely smart contract driven product. Marketplaces may still be in a ‘validator’ role for the marketplace transaction but now they don’t have direct access to funds. This mitigates misappropriation by the marketplace along with exit scamming
  • By participating in the Bondly network, marketplace vendors can represent themselves as BPROTECT ready and show their on-chain transaction history and successful Bondly enabled deals
  • BPROTECT will have a similar UX to Zapper.Fi that will pull this vendors on chain activity and history into one place across ethereum and our native substrate chain so you can see their status and history
  • Functions as a ‘Buyer Protection’ similar to most major marketplaces, where customers are protected by collateral within Bondly
  • First customers will be marketplaces that sell digital goods like Domain Names and In-Game items and that support crypto payments already. Existing domain name credentials and ownership will be wrapped in an NFT and swapped for requested crypto directly
  • Requires that the marketplace itself stakes Bondly collateral as well as each individual marketplace vendor
  • COMPLETELY UNDERCUTS the whole ‘fake review’ industry which is prominently used to inflate value on sites like Amazon.com
With BPROTECT you can
  • Give more trust to your buyers that you will provide the purchased asset in a timely fashion
  • As a buyer you can request sellers to use this method so you have more trust
  • Sell an asset via OTC that you do not have yet (e.g. waiting for vesting) by staking collateral in the Bondly network
  • Set up recurring payments from individuals to vendors that can deduct from your account every month, similar to a Netflix subscription completely crypto enabled

How does BOND PROTECT work?

For individual OTC Trades:
  • Seller stakes collateral and ensures the buyer will receive asset by a specified date or with a specific condition
  • If agreement is violated, collateral is forfeited and transferred to the buyer
For Marketplace Vendors:
  • Vendors stake collateral (earning staking rewards for doing so)
  • Should a vendor violate a sale condition (e.g. not deliver a good on time), BOND collateral is provided to buyers as compensation
  • Each sale is recorded on-chain for transparency
  • Vendors who provide extended positive service with a long term history are rewarded through our staking/LP rewards program

https://preview.redd.it/3t8a39rh1hu51.png?width=737&format=png&auto=webp&s=6c9e1f41cc862859bbee1e263f740bbe6a106057

Bonding with Polkadot

As our ‘sibling’ projects Darwinia and Bifrost have realized, Polkadot and using Substrate represents a phenomenal step forward in interoperability.
It offers:
  • Total flexibility for building a cross asset non-custodial token bridge
  • Seamless integration of our partners/peer bridges between infrastructure
  • Built in network security
  • Efficient token standard indexing for every type of asset in every type of blockchain
We don’t have Digital Money without Bitcoin; We don’t have Smart Contracts and DeFi without Ethereum; We don’t have true interoperability without Polkadot and Substrate.
In a future article we will talk more about our Kusama testnet release.

Whats next for BONDLY?

BONDSWAP for Ethereum, the first formal product release, will be available soon (so hold off on your OTC transaction until then). This will include support for the Bondly staking program. Detailed roadmaps for the other products will be announced soon!
In the meantime we will be making additional articles (but not limited to) the following topics:
  • Our first BPROTECT marketplace customers
  • The BONDLY Liquidity Marketplace
  • Partnership Announcements
  • Team Details
Please join our community and sign up for the alpha! We are so excited to share more with you soon!
