Bountify now accepts (and pays out) bitcoins!

Posted by bevan on Nov 12

Pay for bounties and receive winnings in bitcoins!

Paying for bounties with BTC

You can now pay with bitcoins instead of using your credit card when posting bounties. Everything else is the same; the bounty amount will still be shown in dollars, and there will be no visible indication that you paid in BTC.

Cashing out in BTC

Now, when you win bounties, you can choose to receive the equivalent bitcoin amount instead of having the money sent to your Paypal account. All bounties can be paid out in bitcoins, even if the bounty creator paid in dollars.

Details:

We use blockchain.info's API to query the current price. We use the current exchange rate when you post a bounty or when you cash out to calculate the price or payout.
