I wonder if there’s anyone out there working on an open set of APIs that allow you to buy/sell API data without having to buy one of those 21Inc computers.

I don’t see the point in having one of those, all we are doing is empowering 21inc to become THE monopolistic entity in this market place, when all of those functions can be performed with any hardware.

It’d be great if there were a standard, decentralized, API-exchange protocol, on which any API/Data seller can advertise herself, and anybody who finds them can open a micropayment channel and start making calls as they please (or as the target system can handle)

So many things to do, so little time, 21inc will have its monopoly at this pace if Bitcoin gets anywhere.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
