         CoinPool Combines a Bitcoin Directory With Free Classifieds and a Calendar

Calling itself the “first exclusive bitcoin portal,” CoinPool.com features a directory of businesses who accept bitcoin, sorted into over 100 categories and a marketplace where users can purchase items with bitcoin.

Bitpay.com currently offers a bitcoin business directory, which boasts a search function and categories. Listings come with just one photo, a short blurb and a link to the merchant’s website. Bitcoinyellowpages.com is another good resource. But the functionality is a bit counterintuitive. Clicking on a category takes a user to a map view instead of a listing. Bitcorati’s directory functions the same way.

CoinPool.com reportedly offers product/service catalogs and photos right inside the comprehensive listings, along with a ratings and reviews section. Another promising feature is a listing of classified ads for items which can be purchased with bitcoin.

Users will also have access to an online event calendar for comprehensive details about upcoming cryptocurrency events/conferences/expos. Listing businesses, creating classified ads and adding events to the calendar will all be free.

The information section will offer instructional videos on bitcoin, as well as forums.
