Hey everyone,

Just a random question out of curiosity - Has anyone ever purchased something through BitcoinTalk and successfully received the goods?

I know there is a marketplace section but seems like there are scam accounts all over there. Newbie accounts with one post etc.


Interested to hear the responses!

21 million cap in my opinion is not about scarcity and price but instead it is more about having a clear maximum supply and a clear predefined plan for distribution of that supply.

Are you trying to say that 21 million bitcoins are a lot?

I disagree with that. There are today near 8 billion people in the world

So, if we make the math, there is 0.002625 Bitcoin for each living person.
However, world population keep growing at exponential rate. Soon it will be less than 0.002 for each

Look at this wikipedia image
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_population

I dont think he was implying that, but great point on your end. One to three BTC is going to be life changing in a decade.

I like the design of your website, for me in UI is very good, it's just that the font you use is not good enough in my opinion, rather impressed abstract. Maybe promotion will help build a community on your website so that you can compete with the same market. I haven't explored the features and tried it yet, so for UX I can't give my opinion.

yeah the font thing we get a lot. its a easy thing to change and we are looking into it.
Regarding community: we are as we speak planning the main marketing plan and it will be quite extensive and over a longer period of time.
This however, does not include the community reach out and we are very keen to work with people directly. Vertex is a platform for the crypto community meaning we want to do it how the community wants it. As a CEO i just make sure its taken care of in the right way.

Also converting non cryptousers into cryptousers is a goal that we pursue and the community can help vertex, to achieve this




Converting non-crypto users should be a major focus for all trading platforms. It is their job to drive more economic activity in crypto and very important that we the big companies fit this into their marketing plan.

After local bitcoins forced kyc i have been waiting for something to take their place, but building a reputation in a new site like this take time, and i'll wait until there are some trusted parties to trade with. But there's something i have been thinking about; if there are known scams selling their coins p2p and i don't know about it but just buy them, would the regulated exchanges freeze my account if i try to trade those flagged coins without knowing they are stolen funds?

If you bought the coins, you did nothing wrong. The person with the scammed coins will be in trouble if they are caught, not you. How would they verify that tokens are stolen?
13  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Scammed on LocalBitcoins on: October 31, 2019, 03:18:14 AM
Buying fake accounts is one thing, but avoiding personal KYC in general is another thing (extremist!).
I think avoiding KYC is actually a good thing because it shows that people care about their private information, which is something you can't erase from an exchange's server once you give it to them.

Another thing is that we have seen various exchanges outsource KYC verification to third party services most people haven't ever heard of, but when we do hear about them, it's because they got hacked and a lot of data has been stolen.

I can't stress enough how important it is that people should value their private information more. It's not in your best interest that criminals abuse your name or that verification services sell your information to third parties.

The issue is that people do not take their privacy seriously enough. If we really cared about privacy, people would not be using Facebook. I would stress that Financial privacy is probably the most important thing out of everything. So platforms like Bisq and Vertex really do matter.
I also believe scams and frauds become successful only due to the ignorant and careless nature of common people. They are not very serious rather do not consider every related bit of information important. There is nothing bad in using any platform unless you provide more than what you should. The most secure way is to go for secure options in every domain and provide as less info as possible.

Simple as that!

I got scammed on LocalBitcoins and started looking for new p2p trading platforms in South Africa and came across Vertex Market (https://vertex.market ) as they posted on BitcoinTalk. Here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5194938.new#new


Has anyone used them before? I have already made a couple of small trades which all worked but nothing over $100 because Iím a little scared putting in large amounts on a platform I just found.

The platform works great but I just want to know if anyone else has used it and if anything, bad has happened? It will probably be my go-to trading platform but need to confirm first.


Possibilities of getting scammed in local bitcoin is very very less unless you accepted a payment which is reversible like paypal.Is this way you got scammed because I don't know what actually the vertex market means.

You can report the user to localbitcoin support staff if he is still using the same account.

It must have been a PayPal transaction. Its the only potential way of me seeing a scam actually taking place.

I have tried to visit the website but this is what i get
https://i.imgur.com/9U0Jbcf.png

Is it just me or everyone else is experiencing this?
My internet connection speed is very Okay.
its working in my end... try to access again, maybe its on maintenance when you access the site.

It must be his connection. I have never seen this message while on the site.
Thanks, I am able to get in now



But i think the word anonymous is being misused and a bit misleading here. On seeing "anonymous" on the title, i thought i was going to see a P2P trading platform like bisq. When someone has to sign up and even submit their KYC details then that person ceases to be anonymous IMO.

Well you could create a dumbie email and use that. There is no KYC needed and that is definitely anonymous.

If you don't want to be scammed I would suggest using local vendors that has your own currency and connections to your bank. Most of the time (almost all of the time) if they have a automatic website like that they are legit, even if you are not sure you can check online and see their results.

Maybe in Africa it is not quite common yet but that means even better because you can start one yourself which would be super profitable, there is 4 in my country hence why I can't really make one but if my country had none I would have get all the loans I can to start a new one because I know one exchange in my country and we talk with the owner time to time and they are super profitable. So either you would find a local exchange that does your currency or you find a good business opportunity.

True, but remember this goes against P2P trading. People want trading options like this, so they do not have to worry about giving KYC information to providers. Marketplaces are great for people that want to hide their identity and trade locally or internationally.

There are also way too many providers out there currently so your marketing budget will need to be huge and your product needs to be highly unique.

didn't create an account but i see not just bitcoin is allowed to sell there. i could sell my altcoins there but i'd just wait for now til i see your platform becomes popular. there are bugs to be fixed like the ones mentioned above, it needs to be promoted and if later people start trusting if even when it claimed to have been available to 200 countries while there are only 195, i'd likely join still.

How would you recommend the promotion to go? Influencer and paid search campaigns?
