This is an experimental bank which purpose is to demonstrate the usage of Bitcoin Cheque payments. Basically, the Bitcoin Cheque is an second-layer payment system that will enable unlimited and instant payment of Bitcoin. The payment system is intended to overcome some of the limitation of Bitcoin. The ideas and the project is described hereĀ www.bitcoincheque.org.

Please feel free to sign up as a bank client and play around with the cheques. During the sign up you will be granted a credit of 0.0025 bitcoins, which can be used to create cheques. The cheques can be sent to yourself or your friends by e-mail.

Example of a Bitcoin Cheque

However, there are no real Bitcoins in this bank, so you can not withdraw these coins, or use if for real payments. Neither can you deposit real coins into the bank. Maybe it will be supported in the future.

The bank and the payment system is continuously being worked on. Periodically this site goes down for upgrading and all users and data may be deleted. So keep in mind if your user disappear, you will need to re-register.

The bank is implemented as a open-source WordPress plugin. The source code and a project description is found here www.bitcoincheque.org/projects/bitcoin-bank. You can download the source and install it on your own WordPress site.
