Martindale on Demo video of working Zero Click Bitcoin Micropayment directly in the HTTP protocol (402 code). - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Hey Ben! Great work, very exciting to see this implemented from end-to-end. Any thoughts on utilizing smart contracts by way of Payment Channels to allow for more robust billing cycles than a single payment?" - Eric Martindale
Martindale on PSA: Some services take security more seriously than others - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Security is of the utmost priority for BitPay, and we take these types of reports extremely seriously. As you mention, we build and maintain a large number of [mostly open-source] software projects, so providing a comprehensive policy across all of these projects presents some unique challenges. We have been taking extra care to collect feedback and work on a case-by-case basis before announcing a formal policy, one that we hope will be adequately rewarding for security researchers. In the meantime, security issues with all BitPay projects should be reported to our security task force at security@bitpay.com – we will make sure that all security issues are handled appropriately." - Eric Martindale
Martindale on Archive.org is asking for financial support with Bitcoin as one of three primary payment options - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Around 50% of our merchants actually accept some portion of their settlement in BTC." - Eric Martindale
Martindale on BitPay Labs announces Bitcoind.js, Live Presentation - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"This is the direction we're going in, yes. A large part of this work is in libbitcoind.so, which exposes all of Bitcoin Core's internals as a bug-compatible shared library. We [originally submitted this as an update to Bitcoin Core](https://github.com/bitcoin...), but now maintain on [BitPay's fork of Bitcoin](https://github.com/bitpay...) in lieu of acceptance upstream. [Bitcoind.js](https://github.com/bitpay...) is the encapsulation of this work, allowing JavaScript applications access to the underlying bug-for-bug compatible Bitcoin Core code." - Eric Martindale
Martindale on BitPay Launches Mobile SDKs - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"We don't have a native iOS SDK available yet, but I'll count your question as another upvote for its priority internally. I'll check in with you when we have it! RemindMe! 1 month" - Eric Martindale
Martindale on Venture capitalist don't build decentralized/distributed solutions, because it is not profitable. Our focus should be decentralization, not handing over Bitcoin to the institutions it was created to bypass. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"No. We use something called [the Bitcoin Best Bid](https://bitpay.com/bitcoin...) to calculate our BTC rates, which looks at the order books on supported exchanges and finds the best available price for the volume of coins that are being moved. We then use [OpenExchangeRates](https://openexchangerates.org/) to derive cross-currency rates." - Eric Martindale

"For what it's worth, the BitPay engineering team's motto is "decentralize all the things." Everything that can be decentralized, will be – we're spending our engineering efforts making tools that help people, well, decentralize all the things. Take a look at [Foxtrot](http://github.com/bitpay...), [bitcoind.js](https://github.com/bitpay...), and Bitcore (specifically, [our incoming rewrite](https://github.com/bitpay...)) for the types of things that we're able to contribute towards this mission as a result of funding. We also recently chose to [make payment processing free, forever](http://blog.bitpay.com/2014...). Even BitPay's core business [today] will be decentralized (or rather, made irrelevant) – but with enough resources, we can accelerate the arrival of the completely decentralized future we're all looking for." - Eric Martindale
Martindale on Adding Bitcoin support to Tox, a FOSS, secure, distributed skype replacement. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Eventually, payment processing will be decentralized, too – driving the cost to zero _anyways_. There are other things in much more need of being decentralized in the meantime." - Eric Martindale

Martindale on Famous MMA gym "Tristar" adds bitcoin as a means of payment for products and gym fees. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"This is awesome; good gyms / trainers are often cash-only due to the hassle that is involved in accepting anything but. See also [Roger Ver's recent tweet in support of the idea](https://twitter.com/rogerkv...). If you train BJJ, Muay Thai, or any other martial art – get together with your trainer and help guide them through the process. Bitcoin makes so much sense for this market, it's silly to _not_ be accepting it." - Eric Martindale

Martindale on New film, "Bitcoin: Buenos Aires" -- Available Now :-) - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"You can still include the `.txt` in the root of the torrent, while simultaneously allowing the video to be streamable. Great work all around, and thanks for putting this together. Amazing stuff." - Eric Martindale
Martindale on New film, "Bitcoin: Buenos Aires" -- Available Now :-) - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Thank you _so_ much for releasing this on BitTorrent, generally the easiest way of watching a film. One minor qualm; you should release the direct `.avi` so that it can be streamed over BitTorrent, rather than [perhaps inadvertently] disabling that behavior by wrapping it in a `.zip`." - Eric Martindale

"We have released two authentication middlewares so far; [passport-bitauth](https://github.com/martind...) and [connect-bitauth](https://github.com/martind...) – both are in Javascript. What languages specifically are you looking for?" - Eric Martindale
Martindale on Announcing the New BitPay API - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Great feedback, this is exactly what we're looking for. Thanks! In the current implementation, nonces are limited in scope to the client – which we view as analogous to a single server, or a single process. In addition to preventing replay attacks, they are used to _enforce_ sequence of operations for that process. For the distributed environments we've been working with, new processes create a new keypair so they can be uniquely identified and protected against these replay attacks. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on improving this API – if we can find a better solution, we should update [the BitAuth spec](https://github.com/bitpay...)." - Eric Martindale
Martindale on Work in progress: Bitcore 2 - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Hey, Eric with BitPay here – this is an open discussion that I'd love to hear your feedback on. Many of our projects _do_ use git rebase, while several do not – there's often cases for doing other behavior, such as explicitly preventing fast-forward merges. Can you point out some examples, and describe what you'd like to see?" - Eric Martindale

Martindale on Overstock to Pay Employee Bonuses in Bitcoin - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"BitPay employee here; for those also wanting their employers to pay in Bitcoin, just a shameless plug for [BitPay's Payroll Service](https://bitpay.com/payroll)... we run our internal payroll this way, and I've been _extremely_ pleased with how it works. Then again, I might be a touch biased. Please judge for yourselves." - Eric Martindale

Martindale on City-States: Sov Nullsec is Eighty Percent Rotten - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"In the canon, all ships have a "repulsor" type device which is what prevents them from damaging their superstructures when "bumping" into other things. Apparently in [the Malkalen Catastrophe](https://www.youtube.com/watch...), this must have been disabled. We should be able to do similar things with our own ships, _all_ ships. "Disable grav repuslors". Hell, even self-destruct – what if that acted like a last-ditch smartbomb, and did a very small amount of splash damage? Emergence is dead in EVE. We should bring it back." - Eric Martindale
