If you can't get it free, at least buy it on the orderbook through the ripple client and experience the way crypto buying should be.

I love the speed of the Ripple network...it has been fun watching it progress, and the future holds some good stuff.  

I'm posting this in a bunch of ripple threads because anyone interested in it should learn to do it the right way...with an orderbook at a price you want to pay, rather than "Market Price", as your gateway sees fit.

Hey XRP fans...having issues figuring out how to use the Ripple orderbook rather than just buying at Bitstamp's "market" price?

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=297326.0

Problem solved...use the orderbook to get the price you desire...but hurry...good news is spreading quick!

Hey guys, I think it was this thread that led me to discover you could do this, so thanks for that...but it still seemed a bit tricky, so here's a breakdown for noobs like me that want to buy from an advanced orderbook using the ripple client, rather than market price on bitstamp:

I probably already posted on here, but I just want to be certain, because I love me some free xrp!

Also...if you want to buy xrp on an orderbook, I posted a description of how to use Bitstamp and the Ripple Client, which is way better than Bitstamp market price...

306  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Advanced (order book) trading for XRP using Bitstamp and the Ripple Client on: September 19, 2013, 04:03:19 PM
I found this tricky enough I thought I'd attempt a quick tutorial to share what I learned about buying XRP with the Ripple client.

I originally funded my Bitstamp account with BTC, traded it to USD, then converted it to XRP on Bitstamp at market price because I
didn't realize you could take the advanced route and get to an actual orderbook, just like BTC-E or any other exchange has.  

These are the steps to getting to the more advanced order book.  If you are familiar with linux, this reminded me of adding a trusted
source in many ways...except you limit how much trust you give.

Step 1.  Load Bitstamp with BTC...would probably also be possible with USD, but for this example, I'm trading BTC for XRP.

Step 2.  If you don't have one already, sign up for a wallet at Ripple.com.  Once you have an account head back to Bitstamp, but keep Ripple up in another tab.

Step 3.  Hit the Withdrawal button on your account balance page in Bitstamp.  On the left, you will see various options, ripple being one of them, click on it.

Step 4.  When you're at the Ripple Payment screen, it says you have X amount of dollars and x amount of BTC the destination must trust this address...
with "Trust This Address" being a link, click on that link and copy the ripple address it lists.

Step 5.  Head back to your Ripple wallet, click advanced, and under Trust, click the "+" button.  Add the ripple address you just copied as the Name, and how much BTC or USD you want to send to the order book as your Amount, then Grant Trust.

Step 6.  Head to the Trade screen and click on Order Book.  If one appears, you've done everything correctly.  On the top of the screen click receive and copy your Ripple wallet address.

Step 7.  Go back to the Bitstamp screen and use this address to wire the btc to.  You will then need to confirm it through email.

Step 8.  Watch as funds arrive at your Ripple wallet almost instantly in the form of BTC, you can now trade directly on your orderbook, cheers.

EDIT:
So one of the people who followed these directions informed me that Ripple won't let him trust a gateway until he has XRP.  

I believe this can be solved by converting a small amount of BTC...say BTC0.01 into $USD on Bitstamp, then buying XRP (ripple), then send it to your new Ripple wallet address listed under the Receive tab in Ripple.  That should successfully fund you with enough XRP to go back in and Trust Bitstamp as a gateway...when he finishes doing this, I've asked him to report back so I could update this post.

If you happen to do it before he does, please post your results on this thread so we can make this easier.

UPDATE:  10/14/2013...

Bitstamp now also requires verification, which makes this whole process slightly more annoying, but once verified, you're good to go.  We have confirmed that the method I have laid out regarding buying a small amount with the Bitstamp client and sending it to your ripple wallet address will give you enough XRP to effectively Trust Bitstamp as a gateway.

So there you have it, the not so easy, but highly worthwhile method of trading XRP using an orderbook like BTC-e or Kraken (which now trades XRP directly...which was not available when I first wrote this!).

As I understand, paypal protection works within 45 days after payment, and cointerra is not going to ship in that period. Am I wrong?

Nah, much longer than that, CC payments can be charged back for 13 months AFAIK. Since PP charges your CC it can't be shorter.

Any idea how that works if you have your paypal connected to your bank account info, not via credit card?  Seems like you might be subject to shorter terms.

Primecoin is one of my favorites right now.  Hard to mine, lots of interest, and more people hearing about it every day.

I have a great feeling about it, but time will tell.  The physical Primecoins look so damned good I'm considering a bulk purchase
so I can sell some on ebay and get mine mostly free!

My favorite place for price checking is here:

https://ripplecharts.com/
I especially like the ability to flip the chart, more charts should do that.

Might be time to grab a few more if this rumor is true.

It would be great to see "OpenCoin" actually living up to their name and their promises.

Subject says it all, PM me with serious inquiries.  Shipped = 48 contiguous US states...international would be adjusted accordingly for shipping only.

1.25 BTC firm.

Oh, brand is Power Cooler, great card, just too much fan power is what I think caused the issue, had it set at a constant 80%, which is too much strain apparently.  I would swap the fan myself, but I've decided I don't care for mining and there are so many people with such a huge head start it's no longer worth it for me.

Happy to use escrow with John K.  Signature required, no PO boxes.

Mods...do let me know if I haven't posted in the appropriate category.  If this is supposed to be in marketplace, feel free to move as needed.



well no shit...

This made me laugh.  I added that line after I had posted in the wrong place, you may un-bunch your panties.
318  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Ripple starts to conquer the world from China on: September 10, 2013, 11:46:04 PM
Ripple and Bitcoin are both still very early on in their development...like Apple in the 80's.  Joel Katz has stated he would consider it a personal failure if they do not release some of the code to be available as open source before the end of the year (if memory serves...someone else can probably find you the thread where he said that).

My take is XRP is hanging in the background for now until Liberty Reserve and BTC legal issues are clarified prior to really making it a big deal (especially with investors on US soil).  The Ripple network is a pretty cool concept, and they've done a beautiful job putting it together.  I think Ripple may fill in where BTC and Paypal fall short...or at least that is the intention.  

I do think it is prudent to recognize the misrepresentation of the concept as Open source using the "OpenCoin" moniker.  That is downright misleading until source code is view-able on github.  I have my doubts and my hopes, but in the end...Google is behind some of it, so I feel strongly it will be more than it is now, soon.

what now? link? This is the first I am hearing of this XRP is not the symbol for ripple?  

I believe he is trying to make the distinction that you don't necessarily need xrp to use Ripple's network...at least that's the theory.

You speak as though SHA-256 is "Open-source" and free from centralization.  In's and outs indicate otherwise...even localbitcoins can be fairly well traced back to the person who sold it to you.

Consider this:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=288738.20

I'm just along for the ride...and I welcome many forms of crypto-currency, as who knows which one will stick, just keep in mind you could lose your shorts from any of these, so don't divest all your holdings in one spot. 

I'm not saying XRP is any better or worse than Bitcoin, just another project worth paying attention to.
