What are bitcoins?

Bitcoin is a new kind of money. It’s the first decentralized electronic currency not controlled by a single organization or government. It’s an open source project, and it is used by more than 100,000 people. All over the world people are trading hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of bitcoin every day with no middle man and no credit card companies. It’s a startup currency which has never happened before.

Bitcoin is the first digital currency that is completely distributed. The network is made up of users like yourself so no bank or payment processor is required between you and whoever you’re trading with. This decentralization is the basis for Bitcoin’s security and freedom.

Email let us send letters for free, anywhere in the world. Skype lets us make phone and video calls for free, anywhere in the world. Now there’s bitcoin. Bitcoin lets you send money to anyone online, anywhere in the world for less than a cent per transaction! Bitcoin is a community run system not controlled by any bank or government. There’s no wallstreet banker getting rich by standing between you and the people you want to send and receive money from.

Bitcoin is more efficient than all competing currencies. This will drive its adoption in the same way computers were adopted, in that computers made people more efficient in competing in the marketplace. A currency has value by it being widely used. Bitcoin is a startup currency with a deflationary bootstrapping economy. Its use spreads by providing the speculator incentive.

Bitcoin is going to be the biggest opportunity for innovation that the world has seen since the industrial revolution. An idea whose time has come.

I already sent bitcoins but did not receive a license yet

Please note that we need to wait until the validity of the transaction is verified by the bitcoin network and afterwards assign your license to your user account.

Although we try to fulfill your order as soon as possible, it might take up to 24 hours to complete all necessary steps. So we kindly ask you for your patience!

I would also like to use this form – is the source code available as open source?

Yes, actually I even built a WordPress plugin which you can download at http://wordpress.org/plugins/bitcoin-order-form-for-mapsmarkercom/ The code is also available on Github at https://github.com/robertharm/bitcoin-order-form

Please be aware that this plugin is customized for MapsMarker.com and has not options to customize the products in the backend. I shared the code for developers in order for them not having to re-invent the wheel but to only change some form parameters in the code if they want to use a customized version on their sites.
