Bitcoin Product Spotlight: GetComposed - DarkLeaks - BitMesh

The Bitcoin and digital currency ecosystem is rapidly growing as engineers and designers are building new tools and products everyday. Some are using Bitcoin in novel ways, others are helping to grow adoption, and some are just fun side projects. As a community it is important to recognize this effort and help others find these products. We will showcase some of our favorites every week.

GetComposed - @dreadpirateryan

GetComposedGetComposed

Composed is an email paywall service founded by Ryan Gerard. Similar to last week’s product BitWall, Composed gives you a way to earn money while reading your emails. Where BitWall would charge you to connect to a given link online, Composed will charge whoever it is trying to email you. Composed will give you a new email address that will be made public and will work alongside your existing addresses. The paywall would not be activated when someone emails you through your original email address, but if they try to contact you via the new Composed address, they will be prompted to pay the fee you set upon activation. Once a payment is confirmed, the email will be forwarded to your original email address, and you’ll get paid. The idea was that a very minimal fee in bitcoin would be manageable for most consumers when sending an email, but would be economically prohibitive for spammers and cold-callers trying to reach thousands of people with each message. So far they’ve been able to reach you for free, Composed would like for you to be compensated for your time.

DarkLeaks

DarkLeaks

DarkLeaks is a recently announced bitcoin marketplace for secrets and information. Reminiscent of a previously covered site, Slur.io, DarkLeaks seeks to use anonymity and Bitcoin’s blockchain to incentivize the publication of sensitive private information. Produced by unSystem, the people responsible for other products like Dark Wallet and Dark Market, DarkLeaks will be a direct competitor to Slur.io considering the content it expects to be traded on the site. From naked celebrities to military secrets, no information is safe.

BitMesh - @BitMeshNetwork

BitMesh

BitMesh is a product that allows you to essentially rent out your internet connection to the public in exchange for bitcoin. Their aim is to leverage current devices already connected to the web with excess bandwidth and to lend it to devices seeking connection within range. WiFi seekers will have to pay a fee to connect, and providers will be reimbursed in bitcoin for the connections to their network. Prices for connection will be negotiated and determined in local marketplaces for fairness rather than through set rates which would require contracts or third party escrow, according to the site. Their goal is to be “ubiquitous” across all platforms utilizing connection from “handset devices, desktop systems, and eventually networking hardware.” Distributing connections like this could be revolutionary for developing nations with limited internet access, and it comes with the added incentive of providing a financial return to its adopters.
