Sure, that might be a good idea to imitate flattr without the fees.
I'm starting to have serious doubts about bitcoin as an acceptable currency, though.
If anyone here knows better, let me know. These are the problems I've found:
- The protocol is not specified. The only specification is the hard-to-read original client's source code.
- There are no good command-line only, clean, clients, and it's hard to make one because of the previous point.
- It's necessary to download the entire bitcoin transaction history to run a client, and that is quite large (>1GB). Apparently this is not true in theory, but I don't see any good clients that don't do it yet.
Arguably one can avoid the last problem by using a web service like InstaWallet, but that requires one to trust that website, and it's unsatisfying not to be running your own client whose source code you can both read and understand.
