Title: How to buy a bitcointalk profile via escrows?
Post by: elyorman on September 24, 2019, 02:05:21 AM
Hey guys.
I am interested in buying a profile here as I do not have time to improve mine. I want to buy either Junior, Member, or Full Member. Not sure yet. Could you suggest which one would be the best choice (logically higher rate has more advantages but is it worth it?)
1. Do I have to pay only with bitcoin or altcoins for a profile if I want to use escrow service? Or is there any other payment methods such as pay pal, credit card, others?
2. Can anyone advice me trusted escrows?
3. I am going to use it for IEO which means our partner exchange is handling the marketing as well so does it worth to buy a profile here to announce IEO?
thanks in advance

None. Buying an account is extremely discouraged by the community and you will get your accounts (along with the bought one) neg trusted. Also, getting scammed by trying to buy an account is the easiest thing ever.

This is essentially buying a reputation. Build your own account, dude.

Buying of accounts is very dangerous you might get scammed or you might end up buying an account that was used in scamming or you might buy an hacked account and the account might end up getting red trust.

If your only purpose for buying an account is to announce an IEO, why not just buy a copper membership instead? You can be able to post images to make your ANN thread presentable. It is cheaper and less risky compared to buying an account.

Here's a guide on how to buy copper membership:

As others said, buying an account is not something that is not encouraged, for your purposes Copper Member should be good for the beginning, you can get it here. (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=credit;promote).

Since you are new, and you plan to start new thread, i suggest you check Unofficial list of (official) Bitcointalk.org rules, guidelines, FAQ (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=703657.0) to avoid any future issues.

Another option is to hire a user with a high rank (Hero or Legendary) to post your ann thread and manage it. You could get an extra credibility if you manage to make a deal with a trusted member here. But of course, it will be not as cheap as buying a copper member.

If the @OP really want to buy some account, he/she can post on the Bitcoin Forum > Economy > Marketplace > Goods > Digital goods > Invites & Accounts (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=234.0) section (very not advisable).
And about the escrow services he/she looking for, you can check some recommended bitcointalk escrow services here: Recommended bitcointalk escrow services (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2439910.0).
Most of the advises about buying of an account are already said above, you should be aware.
You can also some hire some campaign manager maybe that can manage your IEO here as what @joniboini said, you can also look some on this section : Bitcoin Forum > Economy > Marketplace > Services (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=52.0)

I think you got your main answer here: do not buy an account. If you are going to manage the Ann and/or bounty threads yourself, buy a Copper Membership (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2385104.msg24371150#msg24371150). If you consider the rank is important to give credibility, then hire someone who has both the rank and the reputation to manage them (if the foundations of the IEO are solid, then that should not be too much of an issue).

Although the OP just stated a question, it also denoted an intent to cut corners. That is not really appreciated, and you need to be wary of this so as not to taint the IEO by association of intent. These things do sometimes spin-back and bite.

I also agree that if your project is solid enough and you show signs of having good security and a well put-together team, you should have no problem in terms of reputability and trust from the community. Naturally most people aren't going to have much faith or trust in newer members around this forum for a number of reasons including the great number of scammers and shady people online, but getting that trust takes time and effort even if you're an already established member offering a service or something like an IEO.

Good to hear that you realized that's not good idea to buy forum account. Main reasons already explained above. I want to add another point - such farmed bought accounts full of shitposts in post history wouldn't add much credibility to the project. You shouldn't expect that you can buy high quality farmed account.
Simpliest and cheapiest solution for you - buy Copper membership. Another one - hire high ranked member with positive reputation to post your announcement.

this is an absolutely bad idea... if you want to use the purchased account for advertising, IEO announcements etc. as well and you get caught? :-X
this throws a really bad image on you, the user and/or the project you are promoting.
please create a new user or simply start from 0 and go directly the right way with a copper membership :)

I saw a few groups in Telegrem where people buy/sell bitcointalk accounts but never deal without escrow and such deal should be a secret since your bought account can get negative trust. Before buying ask for seller to prove that he is account owner by sending you personal message from account you want buy with text you provide.

Certain members are now getting on third party sites, messaging the sellers in this way and then exposing the accounts when they show up here again.

It really, really bothers a lot of people and you'll never know whether your expensive buy will be rumbled  until it's too late. There are some extremely skilled detectives out there. It's becoming a no go area.
