Since we last we wrote about the Top Ten Money Button Apps, a lot has happened and many new apps have been created. Many of the new apps do things that weren’t possible until recently, particularly around on-chain data and applications. We thought it would be cool to share the best of the new apps.
The most popular of the new apps is bitstagram. It’s an easy way for people to share photos with each other. It’s like Instagram, but it’s on the blockchain. Like many other apps on this list, it is powered by both Money Button (to write data) and Planaria (to read data).
bico.media has added an important feature since we featured them in the last list: large, multi-part file uploads using the bcat protocol. We’ve also written this step-by-step guide to uploading large files on the Bitcoin SV blockchain with add.bico.media. bico.media has been used to write all of the largest blocks in the history of Bitcoin SV.
BitPaste Pay Wall
BitPaste was featured in our last list, but they’ve since added an important feature: fully on-chain pay walls. BitPaste is also where Money Button CEO Ryan X. Charles publishes his on-chain blog, such as this post on really big blocks.
etched is a tool to permanently save a website to the blockchain. It saves each part of the website separately, allowing large webpages to be archived. It’s like the Internet Archive for the blockchain!
coin2speech is a fun way to convert any written sentence into an audio message for a very, very small fee of less than one cent. This is the power of micropayments in action!
Similar to etched, immortalsv.com is a way to permanently save a website to the blockchain. However, it works differently. Instead of taking the parts of the web page and saving them individually, it creates a screen shot of the image and saves that. In that respect it is a lot like PageShot, featured in our last list.
weightless is a fully on-chain message board. It is the first example in our list of an app that is actually stored on the blockchain. In their own words, “Weightless is a fully-autonomous, real-time, public message board saved permanently on the blockchain.”
Block Paper Scissors
Block Paper Scissors is a very simple Money Button-based implementation of the classic hand-powered game where the user plays against a computer for a small fee.
MetaFlix is a fully on-chain movie that is also a full on-chain app that allows you to pay to watch the movie. It is a proof-of-concept of how content will be distributed, licensed and paid for on the blockchain.
Pedlr is a way to buy pre-paid phone time in the Philippines, powered by Money Button. Highly recommended for all residents and visitors to the Philippines.
SV Charts is a useful website with charts about the technical properties of Bitcoin SV. It uses Money Button as a tipping button. Tip if you find it helpful 🙂
Simply Bitcoin Cash
Inspiration Generator will make you feel inspired for a small fee 🙂
On-Chain Music Shop
This is a fun proof-of-concept of a fully on-chain music store where the music, the payments, and the app itself are all on-chain.
On-Chain Diary is a fully working proof-of-concept of a diary app where anyone can write their diary posts to the blockchain. The posts, the payments, and the app itself are all fully on-chain.
CalendarSV is an app for creating on-chain calendars and events powered by Money Button and Babel to interface with the blockchain. Building the app involved designing a new on-chain calendar protocol.
Ask Craig is an app that lets you ask Craig anything you want and to get an answer on the blockchain.
The Bitcoin SV Daily
The Bitcoin SV Daily is a fully on-chain newspaper that is generated dynamically from everything newsworthy today in the Bitcoin SV world.
Bonus: UTXO Split Tool
The UTXO split tool is a tool we created to help people prepare to upload large files to the blockchain. It is included inside the main Money Button app. Like everything we build, it is powered by Money Button 🙂
People are building apps with Money Button and Bitcoin SV so quickly that it is difficult to keep track of all of them. This list is not comprehensive. Be sure to check out the previous list of Top Ten Money Button Apps, which contains many apps not listed here. We would like to give a special shout out to those apps, which remain wonderful, useful apps: Fivebucks, b://, Bitcoin Plays Pokemon, BitPaste, MetaNet.ICU, Button Page, Number Sonics, Recursive Money Button, BitcoinFiles.org, DuckCreation, “What do you wish?”, PageReturn, Bico.Media, PageShot.
