Hi all,

PaySwarm alpha for developers has just launched. It is an implementation
of the PaySwarm specifications and will hopefully help people understand
what the specs look like when they're implemented as a part of a
commercial service. There is more about the release here:


At the moment, we only support interactive website-based purchases, but
plan to put in new features every month (like simple REST transactions,
automatic payments, data portability, crowd-funding, etc.). When we make
new releases, we'll announce them on the Web Payments mailing list.

You can try the demo out here:


Keep in mind that all monetary transfers for the developer site are not
tied to any financial networks, so no need to worry about bugs causing
any sort of financial loss. However, this is the real software that
we're planning on commercializing later this year, so no part of the
transaction or accounting process is faked.

Once you have an account on the developer website, you can try out the
WordPress PaySwarm demo. It demonstrates how PaySwarm can be integrated
into blogs in order to sell particular pieces of blog content (articles,
music, video, etc.):


We will be creating and releasing new demos over the next couple of
weeks. Source code will be released simultaneously with the demo
releases. For example, here is the code for the WordPress plugin that is
running on the live demo website:


So, if you'd like - take the demo for a spin and let us know what you
think about it.
