/btc was created to foster and support free and open Bitcoin discussion, Bitcoin news, and exclusive AMA (Ask Me Anything) interviews from top Bitcoin industry leaders! Bitcoin is the currency of the Internet. A distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, bitcoins are issued and managed without the need for any central authority whatsoever.
This is on my radar right now so I just thought I'd post a few points and open up a discussion on it as I see some shortfalls here that might be addressed. My wife is opening a B&M business in the next couple of weeks. She is open to accepting Bitcoin so I figured I would get her set up to be locatable on the map. So far, I know of two options, coinmap and the Blockchain app, both of which use openstreetmap. First issue is that it's a little obscure how you flag that you accept Bitcoin. One of the best pieces of info I found was actually from a Reddit page. Not a big deal but it is a barrier. Next up, openstreetmaps. You have to register an account with them and then the actual adding of the business is a bit technical. I understand why but again, a bit of a barrier. As an aside to this, in other posts, people have complained that places are no longer taking Bitcoin. To remove the bitcoin tag would require registering and using openstreetmaps. Again, something of a barrier to accurate and timely information. Finally, the information I entered yesterday has yet to show up on coinmap or the blockchain app. Possibly just caching though I saw in another thread that coinmap may be way out-of-date(?) But don't worry, I'm not just complaining. Here are some suggestions, some of which I may implement myself if I find the time. Firstly, a site which would allow one to add a business easily. All one should need is the basic details (name, address, #, website), possibly on a GPS enabled device, a "here" button. This would likely require some kind of basic registration and possibly payment (payment would help prevent abuse and finance the site). Additional payment might be in line if there is legwork to do (converting a street address to GPS co-ordinates for example). Second, a page to de-Bitcoinize a store. This would likely not require registration but possibly email confirmation and maybe notification to the store owner (if available). Would it be out of line to charge a small amount for this to deter abuse? Thirdly, it would be nice to be able to generate a directory of local Bitcoin accepting businesses without the map. Just a simple list with name, address, phone# etc. This should be easily created from the openstreetmap data but I am not aware of this. Fourth, I'm thinking a twitter feed for announcing new entries added to the data would be cool. I'm not familiar with the openstreetmap API but it seems like this would be reasonable to do. Finally, it would be kinda fun to have a "Bitcoin Radar" phone app that would display direction and distance of the nearest places that accept Bitcoin. This would be a little different from the maps and would probably be less useful as adoption proceeded. The "Add a location" thing would probably work well for non-Bitcoin stores also. However, I don't think many are focused on openstreetmaps as yet.
Maybe it could be useful for someone. Except the standard map features this app can send you notifications when there is new merchant in your "area of interest". Text search, result filtering and altcoin merchants are also supported. Any suggestions are welcome =) Page on Google Play
I wish CoinMap would continue using OpenStreetMap data
CoinMap.org updated their site to a "2.0" version that is beautiful to use and even more useful than before, but it does have one drawback: The previous site used OpenStreetMap data directly with no ability to add, change, or delete from the site--it was view-only. Version 2.0 uses its own database and ignores OSM completely (except for what was carried over during the transition). I believe I read that some OSM users were upset with the low quality node updates Bitcoin enthusiasts were creating in order to list their sites. This is understandable given OSM's complexity. A way to solve this might be to use CoinMap as an interface for updating OSM programmatically, but this doesn't appear to be the case in version 2.0. As it stands, one would have to add their location to both CoinMap.org and OSM to update the majority of Bitcoin merchant maps out there. OSM data is still used directly with bitcoinmaps.info as well as multiple iOS and Android mapping apps. Maybe this is adequate for now, but it seems like CoinMap becoming a UI frontend for node changes on OSM would be a better solution.
