How to add an alias or an extra email address

Adding an alias or email address to your iGolder account is easy: click on the link Emails and Aliases and enter the email or alias you wish to create.

 

Adding a new alias

Creating the alias BobStore

 

Once the alias has been added, you may bind your new alias to a sub-account.  All payments sent to your business alias will be received to the selected sub-account.

 

Binding an alias to a sub-account

The alias BobStore is linked to the sub-account Bob's Boat Store.  Therefore any payment sent to http://demo.iGolder.com/send-gold/?to=BobStore will be deposited to the sub-account Bob's Boat Store.  In the example above, the checkbox Login was unchecked for the alias BobStore preventing a hacker to attempt to login using the alias BobStore.

 

 

 

Tip: For extra security, we recommend using multiple emails for iGolder account.  For instance, you may have an email address for receiving gold payments, another email to login to your account, and another email to receive notifications and confirmation messages.  This way, a hacker knowing your email address for receiving gold payments will be unable to login to your account and make any unauthorized transactions.

You are also welcome to create aliases for your account.  An alias may be your nickname or your business name.  People can therefore make a gold payment to your alias instead of your email address.  An alias is usually easier to remember, faster to type and is guarantee to never fall victim of spam.

 

 

Since August 1st, 2013 iGolder is no longer accepting new accounts and balances can only be redeemed. During the past years, we have been recommending Bitcoin more than our own payment system. We believe in physical gold ownership, and developed iGolder as a mechanism for people to acquire physical gold by trading with one another.

Since iGolder has a central point of failure (our server may be raided by thugs wearing some kind of uniform), we feet it is safer for us to cease operations. The iGolder experiment has been personally rewarding as we met many gold enthusiasts and also learned about Bitcoin in the process. For those who have no idea what Bitcoin is, we recommend doing your own research. Bitcoin is far superior to iGolder in every way, both in privacy and security as our server is always vulnerable to confiscation. Bitcoin is a communication protocol with a built-in "escrow service" capable of protecting both the buyer and the seller, rendering our Safetransit completely redundant. To learn more about the Bitcoin protocol and its feature, please watch "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mD4L7xDNCmA (Bitcoin 2012 London: Mike Hearn).

For those having gold in their iGolder account, we will ship the physical metal to anyone having more than 1 ounce of gold, assuming the owner is willing to assume the shipping costs. For smaller quantities, we offer to settle in Bitcoin, however we will also settle with any other reasonable payment system. We will give everyone at least two full years (until 2016) to contact us to claim their gold. After that period, any unclaimed gold will go to fund an economic development project in Honduras helping local people to become entrepreneurs.

We sincerely wish you the best in life and hope to keep in contact with you.

Yours in liberty,
The iGolder Team.


Update 2014: Since we announced we no longer accept gold transfers, we have received countless emails asking to keep the free gold charts and the PGP encryption tools. We plan to keep running the domain iGolder.com for both the gold charts and the encryption tools. Better, we are developing state of the art open-source software for a secure decentralized social network with a built-in wallet. We will announce when we have a product ready for use. Stay tuned!
