Ignored.

Have a good one.

There you go, Bono, a trusted forum member with very high trust rating.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is this not negative feedback on his account?

Read what you just linked to... it's a bunch of negative feedback from scammers.  He has a very high score and we'll all vouch for him.  Either make the trade or go scam somewhere else.

Is this really how you treat newer members?

Your mommy needs to teach you some civil discourse.

While she's busy doing that, I may get in touch with Mr. Tomato and see what we can work out. Thanks.

I don't appreciate the attacks on my integrity. It's simply hard to get started when you don't have a résumé. (Much like the real world)

Dude, I perfectly understand, why don't you use a well recognized escrow from this forum?
Also, where do you live? You could also use localbitcoins
But let me reiterate:

Hint: you can just go to BTC-E and buy! But then you can't scam anyone, right?  Wink

One member who contacted me said he'd contact SaltySpitoon (trusted escrow guy), but that was a day ago, and since then a scam report has appeared on his account.

I also set up an account on BTC-e a few days ago using the same username (Bono) but NONE of the options they had to transfer fiat were working, so I just said fuck it.


If, at this point, anyone is willing to perform smaller transactions with me, please let me know.

If you're looking for a trusted forum member why do you want them to send the LTC first?  If you're requiring the other person to take all the risk it shouldn't matter.
I'd like to try my hand at LTC.

Given the current exchange rates (USD, BTC-E charts) I think 30 LTC for 1 BTC is a decent deal.

Please get my attention here or PM me for details.

I haven't tried my hand at Peer 2 Peer transfers yet (I stick to online banks like Coinbase) so I'd kinda prefer to get my precious LTC first from a trusted forum member... hope that's not a big deal.  Tongue

Thanks!

Call me paranoid. The messages I've been getting have not been from trusted, long-time members. Thus far most of my conversations have been "NO U GO FIRST" with other 0 trust members.

Bumping.

Got a few PMs but all from people with low trust ratings/couldn't work out a deal.

Still very interested in this.

Hi Everyone,
I first read about bitcoin back in early 2011 but did not go any further than setting up a wallet so since the currencys rise and coverage in the media over the last 9 months I have decided to again look at bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

As a late entry I feel that I have missed the bitcoin boat unless bitcoin rises further, and perhaps that is the case, however I have decided to look at putting some money into some of the Alt Currencies that seem to have potential. Coins like StableCoin, Quark, Earth and GlobalCoin all look to have huge potential. What are people’s opinions on the above coins are there any I should stay clear of?

One other area of interest is virtual mining and services such as CEX.IO is anyone using their service and seeing any positive results, if it what level should I be investing to get a good return.

How about other virtual/cloud mining services what other options are available and do you recommend them?


I'd say the best bet for a guy like you is Litecoin. It is the most popular alternate currency and is also pretty stable. Basically a carbon copy of BTC.

In theory, the value is supposed to get nearer and nearer to 1/4th that of a Bitcoin as time goes on, and right now it's way under that, so there is tremendous room for growth.

I'd recommend you eat some up before they go over $35 again. They were 40+ when BTC hit its ATH.

So ... are we really going to give BTC to any 5/10 chick who offers to get nude on the internet?

Seriously, way to legitimize the currency and advance the image of women in the civilized world.

90  Economy / Speculation / Re: Predict some big monthly events for BTC in 2014 on: December 26, 2013, 08:50:16 PM
Some events happening next year:

- Wall Street is going to get involved, major pumping (and dumping) is going to happen in Q1 or Q2 of 2014
- More adoption in China, people will have found a way around the obstacles, already BTC China is accepting vouchers that people can buy elsewhere
- Mining SHA256 based coins is no longer profitable for individuals starting Q2 2014, there will be a shift towards shared cloud mining operations
- Mining Scrypt coins is starting to become unprofitable for individuals starting Q4 2014
- Bitcoin will be tied to other electronic currencies, such as the M-Peso
- Trade volume will go up, arbitrage trading will become less profitable
- Countries will make further clarifications towards crypto currencies regarding regulation and taxes
- Crypto currencies become a major threat to the remittance industry
- PayPal will introduce an integrated Bitcoin wallet
- Bitcoin will hit the transactions per second bottleneck, will require software update
- Bitcoins blockchain will require pruning to be implemented or people using remote servers. The first will require a software update
- Bitcoins market cap will grow towards 50-100 Billion USD
- A lot of infrastructure and products and services will be added to the bitcoin eco system, providing solutions for consumers and merchants.
- Signifant adoption, tens of thousands of merchants are accepting bitcoins by the end of 2014, including several very big retailers.

50-100 Billion?

Optimistic aren't we?

Yeah, I have to wonder if this is even within Forum Policy to begin with.

There's a reason they put restrictions on new accounts.

As I understand it, it is still relatively hard (read: illegal) for Chinese to move FIAT in and out of local exchanges. They are far from "gone", but whatever they're doing to trade BTC is just a workaround for their stringent government policy.

Of course this is good news in the short term, but we will never know Bitcoin's true potential until China takes an official stance that's positive.
95  Economy / Economics / Re: Mine VS. Invest VS. Trade on: December 26, 2013, 12:26:15 AM
A friend of mine has a sizable mining operation - he earns close to a BTC a day but he's REALLY into Litecoin...given *coin's current price he prefers to "store" anything he generates in cold hard cash. He does okay.

I would have to say as long as you have the means to start mining effectively, you should... although I have made many hundreds just by wheeling and dealing day to day.



Hi bono curious to know if you can share one or two strategies you use to wheel and deal with? i really want to learn how to do this

Just stay informed and use a reliable service.

Case in point - I bought 2.5 BTC @ about 700 in November during the Chinese rally and sold at 1100. They crashed shortly after on news that China had totally banned Bitcoin... due to my job I'm up at odd hours, and at 2:30 AM on a Friday night, I learned that the crash was caused by some stupid mistranslated news headline.

I found this out basically before anyone else in the U.S. woke up, so I bought back in at 650 and they rose to 800 again before I sold them off.

Day trading is not a great way to make money, especially not with BTC, but if you can get a feel for trends, you can make some great supplementary income week to week.

I use Coinbase myself - not the quickest service by any means, but they seem to be on the up-and-up and continue to receive millions of dollars from interested donors and investors. I don't mind sharing my bank account info either... I figure the NSA has all my shit anyway so I should just be comfortable with the idea of paying taxes on my BTC earnings should anyway ever ask me about them.


Edit: I recommend keeping a pile of BTC that you never touch, ever. They're just so shiny!

What are the next events to watch that could potentially bring BTC below $500?

Let's make some predictions!



Well, let's see...

- Adolf Hitler resurrects and publicly endorses Bitcoin.

- Satoshi reveals that he intends to double the amount of BTC in circulation.

- Some really, really gullible whale reads one of the trollposts here and triggers a massive sell-off.


...

In case you couldn't tell, I'm pretty optimistic about BTC's immediate AND long-term future. With no really impactful negative news on the horizon, I expect modest gains until some cool shit starts happening in early-mid 2014.
97  Economy / Speculation / Re: Predict some big monthly events for BTC in 2014 on: December 26, 2013, 12:11:16 AM
Updated the list - feel free to fill in months that already have an event. (More than one thing can happen in the span of 4 weeks!)

It will be fun to look at this next year and see how many are accurate.
98  Economy / Invites & Accounts / Re: ★★★★ Selling member accounts for newbies ★★★★ new price!!!! on: December 25, 2013, 10:06:47 PM
okay will change it to 0.015 BTC but thats all i can do!! better ??

"Better" is pretty subjective in this sense, but yeah, I guess so. You may have more takers..?

But - I personally wouldn't ever pay for something like this because it's technically free and comes to users naturally.
99  Economy / Invites & Accounts / Re: ★★★★ Selling member accounts for newbies ★★★★ new price!!!! on: December 25, 2013, 09:59:53 PM
One account sold and 50% price cut now 0.025BTC

Are you really charging 15-20 bucks for making a few forum posts?

I registered yesterday evening and most of my posting restrictions are already gone.

This is the biggest scam I have seen in almost a week.
its not a scam at all it takes time to get to be a "member" as u can see ur only a "Jr. Member" and still have the 360 seconds restrictions so its worth it !! 

That's really a stretch, don't you think?

Maybe it's just me, but trading $15 worth of BTC that is expected to grow into much more just isn't worth a couple of days of waiting between posts. You're asking for a LOT of BTC.
100  Economy / Speculation / Predict some big monthly events for BTC in 2014 on: December 25, 2013, 09:48:15 PM
Just some fun speculation - I'm trying to guess a Bitcoin event for every month of the year.

January -
February - U.S. debt ceiling debates spark a modest rise in price.
March - 2nd Q of the U.S. Fiscal Year - Overstock.com begins to accept BTC payments.
April -
May - Some weirdo will name his kid after Bitcoin.
June - By this time Coinbase will have accepted (or announced they will accept) LTC, opening the door for other altcoins and raising awareness.
July -
August -
September -
October -
November -
December -


Try and fill in the blanks!

Will be updated as input comes in.
