1  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Best way to buy a lot of bitcoins? on: April 28, 2016, 07:45:46 PM
Lots of sound advice in the aforementioned replies, an equal or more amount of silly, inexperienced advice though too..here's my personal opinion on the best (economically as well as logically) way to procure the amount of BTCTC you're talking about. First localbitcoins.com is a great source for buying coin up until you're spending more than $9500 or so..spending more than this it becomes much more economically viable to deal with an exchange or reputable company that caters towards OTC purchases - generally reserving their services for these very situations - those interested in spending $50k-100k and up. Using localbitcoins, particularly in person, regardless of where you meet for anything above $6-9k is just not smart. That's too much money to meet someone you haven't transacted with prior, regardless of their feedback percentage and/or how public the place you're meeting is..using this method for a couple grand worth of coin is absolutely fine though, I've done it many many times buying and selling.

One advantage of using an OTC service if you're going to be spending a decent amount of money you definitely do not want to be dealing with incrementally different rates while trying to procure as much coin as you can (attempting to make such a large purchase via localbitcoins.com you would almost certainly be dealing with this, very unlikely that one vendor/merchant is going to be able to satisfy a buy order that large and they're all going to have different rates), a traditional bid/ask order-book formatted exchange (maker/taker market) would also work but you're almost certainly going to be dealing with some slippage while filling you're order.

TL;DR - Look into OTC options for the amount you're interesting in purchasing... https://itBit.com, the U.S. based exchange has a very good OTC offering for those clients who are trying to spend $100k+.. another option is https://genesistrading.com formerly secondmarket..they cater toward providing accredited investors a hassle-free way of obtaining large blocks of digital currency without the potential aforementioned uncertainty/inconsistency etc..that should, hopefully, help provide some guidance in right direction from someone who's done what you're interested in - the wrong way and, eventually, better way.

As was already mentioned, the best investment in Bitcoin is bitcoin itself. If only it would have been possible to invest in shares of the internet itself in the late 80's, early 90's...

There is definitely corollary to be made here...

Appreciate these posts, you guys..

I am attempting to troubleshoot via the aforementioned methods and will report back again - hopefully with some positive results.

Also, in no way were my comments a bash or attack on VNL, the dev, or any of the minds behind the coin..totally understand that it is a work in progress, and a relatively early one at that.

Thanks again.

In any regard, I will keep this thread updated.

If the source of the problem is indeed on my end it is inherent to the Vanillacoin wallet software for OSX or the VNL blockchain. I show the outgoing TX in my wallet but it reflects no confirmations as it's remained for over 24 hours now..yet the coins from the (frozen) TX are undoubtedly deducted from my balance shown in the wallet. If this were a regular Qt, a rescan and/or repair wallet etc..would more than likely solve the issue but alas..it is not. I'll open a ticket with c-cex and see what happens.

Hey dev, I've got an outgoing tx deposit to c-cex that seems to be in-stasis; however, it is not reflected in my balance in the wallet or on c-cex in my balance...please, some guidance. Thanks.

Paraphrase? Sure. You're a provocative cunt.  Cool

Haha, yeah! I got the legendary status for that!
Surely it was you, your ego, and your inability to call a spade a spade (in this instance a space is an eco-system which failed to comprehend initial distribution subsequently leading to a much less decentralized currency) ..the ladder of which helped the most, as legendary status is bequeathed upon those who were willing to ..what was it..provide BTC50 donation at the aim of generalized forum improvements etc? Meager sum at the time, laughable now, especially considering the progress in the improvement arena or lack thereof. You're good though, your station amongst the highest echelons of the NXT/crypto space make it so, presumably. In any regard, you're a provocative fuck and most of the time it's just because you choose to have the tenor of an arrogant prick.

Objection - relevancy. More of the same regurgitated verbal defecation that's blinding my ability to see through your fuzzy logic, if deduction can reason it as such.


I've been running v. 0.5.13 and its predecessors for quite some time ... and now I get to meet the mind behind Qubic, THE driving force, the creative voice of reason in the sea of madness...NXTNEMUtopia...wait..

Could you paraphrase, please? I don't know half of the words that you used and urban dictionary doesn't give meaningful translation.

PS: If English is not your mother tongue then feel free to use any other language.

You can think whatever you like...

Thank you.


... but the fact remains that credit card transactions remain reversible for many months since a customer can refuse the charges and, depending on the contract that the merchant has with the credit card processor, the merchant can lose those funds.

Are you a citizen of the USA by a chance? These guys always think that rules in the USA are universal rules working in the whole universe.

I don't particularly appreciate the blanket statement in regards to Americans and how we 'always' think the law and rules stateside resonate throughout Mother Earth. Perhaps the aforementioned overgeneralization and similar lines of thought work harder to perpetuate what, unfortunately, ends with contagious stereotypes. I would venture to guess that you nor I are that uncultured.

Hey dev. your attitude toward your fellow community members and this project as a whole is ... refreshing. I fear if you turn out to be just a clever electronic social engineer that might be it for me and any measure of confidence I have/will have had in the crypto space not ultimately rotting from the inside out.

No pressure or anything though dude..

Payout from Vnl.suprnova.cc (vanilla coin) never made it to my wallet despite being debited from my account. Double checked the address and this is absolutely not an error or oversight on my end..a lot of coin I mined is completely missing. Please contact me ASAP

Unless you absolutely know who you're dealing with and are confident they wouldn't claim for a chargeback after you send the coin, I'd highly recommend cashing out via some other payment system.

0.3 bid, if you sell it to me now.

I am having all kinds of problems trying to compile the binary for OSX Yosemite..I am a novice at best when it comes to command line anything. Is there any chance someone with a little more knowledge could upload the .dmg or something? I'd really like to check out 2.0..if not, no biggie, I'll wait until widespread release.
