How would anyone even attempt to sell a 5, 10 or 25 BTC coin now? You would need an armoured truck.  Grin Roll Eyes

Does anyone have any advice on the best way to buy items from the US and have them shipped to the UK?

7  Economy / Collectibles / Raffles on: June 13, 2016, 12:50:23 PM
I've been away for a while and dont remember seeing raffles as a way of selling coins. Just wanted to get some opinions on what people perceive as fair.

If for example you are raffling a coin with a value of 2BTC. (Content and numismatic value), how much on top could the raffler expect to add on without being out of order?

If you were to sell 25 tickets at .1 for example would that be seen as acceptable?
8  Economy / Collectibles / Graded or Ungraded on: June 13, 2016, 08:15:11 AM
Is it really worth getting coins graded? How much of a difference would it make on a 1BTC brass, 5BTC nickel 1BTC silver and a 25BTC? Is the only place to do it in the US?

9  Bitcoin / Meetups / Oxford UK. Thursday 29th May on: April 12, 2014, 10:44:28 PM
I am planning to organise a meet up in Oxford on Thursday the 24th May. Nothing to serious, just a chance for bitcoiners to get together and talk shop. If anyone feels like they have something interesting to say and would like to make a presentation please get in touch.

Plan is to start around 6:30 and go on to around 8

If anyone has any other ideas how to get this going and become a more regular thing with info and content that will be useful to people please get in touch too

12  Bitcoin / Press / [2014-03-02] - Britain To Scrap Bitcoin Tax on: March 02, 2014, 06:45:48 PM
Here's some good news for UK Bitcoin holders.


Britain’s tax authority plans to ditch its levy on Bitcoin trading only days after the collapse of Mt Gox, one of the virtual currency’s leading exchanges, losing almost $500m of customer deposits.

The UK’s welcoming approach to Bitcoin contrasts with the approach of other countries, amid concerns about its use for tax evasion and money laundering as well as its notoriety for wide fluctuations in value.

In a meeting with a group of UK traders last week, HM Revenue & Customs said it would not charge the 20 per cent VAT tax on trades, which entrepreneurs had complained made their businesses globally uncompetitive. HMRC went a step further, saying it would not charge the tax on their margins either.

The ruling sidesteps the thorny question of whether to class Bitcoin as a currency, but effectively treats it as such, and bases its policy on the EU law that exempts payments and transfers of “negotiable instruments” from tax.

Governments worldwide have wrestled with the conundrum of how to deal with virtual currencies, as businesses hoping to profit from a small but growing economy have lobbied for regulation that would allow them to flourish.

Singapore has issued tax guidelines for Bitcoin, while an internal US watchdog has criticised the Internal Revenue Service for not doing so.
“If they had added VAT that would have destroyed us, there would have been no point in starting this business at all,” said Jonathan Harrison, who has a start-up working on bringing Bitcoin ATM machines to the UK. “It’s great that the UK authorities are seeing Bitcoin as an innovative technology that can help the economy.”

The European Banking Authority has warned that consumers are not protected by any refund rights under EU law when using virtual currencies for commercial transactions. China has banned its banks from handling Bitcoin, while Russia and Vietnam have declared transactions illegal.

The decision comes as the Bitcoin Foundation, the non-profit advocacy group, told the Financial Times it would redomicile to the UK this spring from the US. Some Bitcoin users see the UK as a more favourable jurisdiction in the wake of Edward Snowden’s revelations about the US government spying on the internet as well as centre of a buoyant “fin-tech” industry.

The Bitcoin Foundation, set up to develop the software that runs the currency and to lobby governments and regulators, is searching for staff and office space in London, according to board executive director Jon Matonis.

Last year HMRC had classed Bitcoin as a voucher, charging VAT on the value of the coin itself. Businesses in the UK had protested against that treatment, saying it would drive customers abroad to countries where no charge was levied. HMRC later withdrew that guidance after meetings over the course of last year.

Other taxes, such as corporation tax, would still apply. The policy applies to all business that buy, sell or exchange Bitcoin.
The total value of all Bitcoins in circulation is $6.9bn, up from $150m a year ago, according to The price of Bitcoin stood at $555 on Sunday, according to the BTC-E exchange, down from a peak of $1,242 in December.

The tax authority said: “HMRC has been working closely with the Bitcoin industry on the tax treatment of trading in Bitcoins and commission. We will be issuing guidance shortly.”

Simon Dixon at Bank to the Future, which helps start-ups to raise funding and has 10 working on Bitcoin projects, said: “The Bitcoin start-up community is booming. If we get favourable regulations that will build a lot of interest from start-ups around the world to come and base themselves in London.”
13  Bitcoin / Legal / Lamassu in the UK on: February 15, 2014, 12:10:42 PM
Anyone know what the deal is with Lamassu machines here in the UK?

Are they legal? Does an operator need a licence?

I am interested to know what people would expect to be paid for designing a website. It would be pretty simple in structure i imagine, no need for loads of pages. Just a few really nice looking ones.

Please PM me or write here with your offers and any experience you might have.

15  Economy / Services / Logo for a sandwich shop competition - £30 in BTC Prize on: January 16, 2014, 02:25:31 PM

16  Economy / Service Discussion / BTC-E LTC Withdrawal on: January 11, 2014, 08:22:02 PM
Has anyone had any issues withdrawing from BTC-E? I initiated a withdrawal this morning and have still had nothing show up in the destination address.

Is this normal for BTC-E?
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Client question on: January 10, 2014, 08:18:12 PM
I have never downloaded a client before and just want to clarify something.

If i download the Coinye client, wait for it to synchronise and then receive some coins from someone is that basically irreversible? Is there anything else i need to do to be safe? I normally just use paper wallets and online wallets for day to day.

18  Economy / Goods / 10% off at Goldsmiths & Ernest Jones UK **Jewellery & Watches** on: January 10, 2014, 10:57:18 AM
Just seeing if there is any interest for this.

I can get gift cards for Goldsmiths jewellers at 10% discount.

For example, you want a new Rolex that costs 4k. You pay me 3600 in BTC and you get a 4k gift card.

The other half wants a 2500 diamond necklace you pay me 2250 in BTC and you get a 2.5k gift card.

All pretty straight forward. If anyone is interested post on here and let me know

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin Problem on: January 09, 2014, 01:18:32 PM
Can anyone help, i need to send some LTC but i only have them on a paper wallet. Normally with BTC i import paper wallet directly into block chain or mtgox and then send from there.

I can't seem to find that function on btc-e though. Is there another trusted online wallet service that i can do this with. (I will send the coins as soon as they are imported)

20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / accepting bitcoins :) on: January 06, 2014, 07:20:32 PM
I hadn't seen any notice of this and not really sure how long they have been accepting but i think it should be bigger news than it is.

I have just ordered my dinner from a takeaway registered with them and looking forward to my first meal paid for in crypto. Smiley Just wish it was delivered with drones in 10 minutes  Grin

If you are in the UK check out the site, there is loads of choice and bitcoin makes it nice and easy to pay obviously.
