Heya Guys

What's actually the point on buying Forum Accounts? I don't quite understand it. Should it make you trustful? If yes, that makes no sense to me. If I knew, that everyone could just buy trusted Accounts and scam easily afterwards, I'd feel same as I'd buy from a completely new Member who has nothing to lose.

I hope someone can explain lol, thanks

People mostly buy accounts for earning from signature campaigns, and no most of the bought accouts aren't used for scamming except for some that have trusted rating. And nearly no one will expect you to go without an escrow thesedays so no trouble of scam, and yeah buying/selling accounts is not prohibited.

So signature campaigns are basically the only reason? Could you explain me these "signature campaigns"?

You should visit the beginners and help section for more info but here it is anyway. In simple words, signature campaigns give you btcs for displaying their signature(notice I have the signature of magicaldice for the same reason) and making constructive posts. You advertise the site for them and they pay you. View this thread for more sig camps: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=615953.0

Heya Guys

What's actually the point on buying Forum Accounts? I don't quite understand it. Should it make you trustful? If yes, that makes no sense to me. If I knew, that everyone could just buy trusted Accounts and scam easily afterwards, I'd feel same as I'd buy from a completely new Member who has nothing to lose.

I hope someone can explain lol, thanks

You noticed the buying accounts but you didnt noticed the beginners thread

Your logic doesn't really make sense here. Older or trusted members here usually don't sell or scam from their accounts because they have something to lose, whereas a newbie doesn't. If you want to trade and are unsure how trustworthy the member is use an escrow - that's the whole point of them. Any account on any website could be hacked stolen or sold so you shouldn't just blindly trust someone because they're a Senior/Hero account or have a bit of feedback etc.

That's what I was asking. WHY accounts are being bought/sold. I've seen a few Accounts being sold yet and my question was why. As I already said, for selling/scamming purposes wouldn't make sense, because if I knew that "trusted/older" accounts are being sold you can't trust anyone. I hope you know what I mean lol.

Generally, forum accounts are bought for participating in signature campaigns in which you get paid for the posts you make wearing the particular signature while on the forum. There are also others who buy an account with potential activity and make posts and sell them at a higher price later.

No, it won't make you trustful rather makes your account suspicious. People are less likely to trust a person whose account changed hands multiple times.

Buying and trading accounts (just once is okay, I think) is generally discouraged, and it is possible that the original owner may be able to reset the account back by proving the ownership in any other way, generally by signing a linked address.

Use escrow at all times, even if you are dealing with a Legendary member on DT.

So you are here also to buy a forum account? Is that it? Why don't you answer your question yourself? Well I mean people has different reasons. Most people use it participate in signature campaign, some buy and sell accounts and some use it to scam or troll in the forum. Now ask yourself your reason as why you are here to buy one. Wink

Nah, you missunderstood me. Not for buying accounts, just for buying regular stuff like steam games or whatever.

People buy the account so they can earn some extra bucks while learning from forum and participating in discussion, its a good way to earn while you learn so there is nothing wrong with this.forum rules allow this to buy/sell the account.if you are active on forum then you can make some bucks from signature campaign by making posts on forum, there are a lot of signature campaigns that pay users
