Dash is one of the more "money" focused alt-coins. It's not trying to be anything other than usable instant digital cash - which appeals to us as a bill payments platform, especially after the problems we had with Ethereum. Also the Dash DAO paid for the integration! It's a real working DAO (not like that other famous one ) that funds development of the protocol and integration projects. I wish Bitcoin had something like this, it's a real innovation in crypto-currencies to see a useful working DAO.1. Recently it was announced that Living Room of Satoshi would start accepting DASH, what was the decision behind this and why DASH out of all the alt coins?
Payroll and bill payments are the two main things that can really make Bitcoin useful in everyday life, so we'd love to see greater uptake of both. The tax laws around GST currently make things a bit difficult in this area.. but I'm confident that the awesome team at getpaidinbitcoin.com.au can sort it out!2. Your rates are very competitive, have you ever thought about getting into bitcoin payroll conversion for those that wish to be paid in bitcoins?
I don't have any specific objection to that - it's useful information. There is a little instant conversion widget that will automatically tell you exactly how much bitcoin you'll need for this bill as you type it. And the rate is in fact displayed immediately after hitting submit on the home page, along with all the other information you need to make the payment. I guess the main reason is that we want the whole experience to be as simple and uncluttered as possible. When you come to the home page, we want the process to be uncluttered and straightforward... so we removed as many things as possible that weren't absolutely vital for that stage in the bill payment process.3. I would like to see the current exchange rate published on the homescreen, any plans for this? (it seems kind of hidden at the moment)
In the immediate future, we're working on making it easy to buy precious metals like Gold and Silver with bitcoin - look out for that soon. We're going to extend our rewards program further so you can earn points from referrals too - and maybe get you a little bit closer to that shiny XBOX One S! There will be a heap of innovation in the coming 12 months, and hopefully one or two game-changers to shake up the legacy bill payments systems in Australia too4. What's the future hold for Living Room of Satoshi?
I'm Daniel Alexiuc. I'm co-founder and CEO of Living Room of Satoshi, Australia's bitcoin bill payments company which launched in May 2014.
For over two years Living Room of Satoshi's customers have been paying phone bills, electricity bills, school fees, credit cards, tax payments and more using bitcoin. We recently passed $3 million total paid through the service, and we help those who get paid in bitcoin to "close the ecosystem loop", enabling them to spend bitcoin directly with over 45,000 Australian billers.
I'm a software engineer at heart, having written enterprise systems for a heap of other people in sectors as varied as banking, credit card processing, taxation, construction, manufacturing, law, government and travel. I've also previously started and run other companies - some raging successes and some dismal failures.
Thanks iFixBTCmemoryIssues! I appreciate it. Super excited to be providing a useful service to bitcoiners too!Welcome!!!!!!!!!!!
Allow me to congratulate you, I have been following your project for some time now, well done on the success!
Good idea, thanks.Just a comment to mods - probably worth locking the thread once an AMA is over ? Prevents confusion with users posting questions much later (like years) after the AMA and wondering why all is quiet...
