It was the Bitcointalk forum that inspired us to create Bitcointalksearch.org - Bitcointalk is an excellent site that should be the default page for anybody dealing in cryptocurrency,
since it is a virtual gold-mine of data. However, our experience and user feedback led us create our site;
Bitcointalk's search is slow, and difficult to get the results you need, because you need to log in first to find anything useful - furthermore, there are rate limiters for their search functionality.
The aim of our project is to create a faster website that yields more results and faster without having to create an account and eliminate the need to log in -
your personal data, therefore, will never be in jeopardy since we are not asking for any of your data and you don't need to provide them to use our site with all of its capabilities.
We created this website with the sole purpose of users being able to search quickly and efficiently in the field of cryptocurrency
so they will have access to the latest and most accurate information and thereby assisting the crypto-community at large.
If you are offering products, services, or currency exchange services, please consider publishing a bit of data to your web host to help the community discover your offerings.
If you'd like to do this, follow the specifications published at http://bcspec.org. If you've implemented the spec, then list your site here.
I will be implementing a v0.01-DRAFT-compliant crawler soon enough (if someone else doesn't before that), which will aggregate everyone's offerings into a searchable database.
If you offer a currency exchange service, please consider publishing recent exchange quotes according to the spec.
In the future, there will be specs for protocols for realtime quote publishing as well as trade APIs. Implementation of these specs is entirely voluntary, but I think it will contribute a great deal to the bitcoin community.
I'll be happy to answer any questions or comments.
