What is your interest in bitcoins?

As far as I can tell there isn't a much in the way of places that will accept them. At least not in Australia.

The idea of a "digital gold" fascinated me when I first heard of it and the idea that I could pay people or transfer funds OS without needing to get "a license to do so" or having to pay unreasonable fees was the kicker.

It has lead me to create this: http://ciyam.org/open (still in Beta)

Actually you should check out Jeremy West's site (no affiliation with myself) - I understand you can even pay your bills with BTC now!

A shame this dispute is the top Google search result :-(

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=51512.0

I am not sure it is still possible to pay bills with BTC any more. It seems like it once was possible, but I can't find any details on any method that is still current.

Yes - that is unfortunate (please note the date on that topic and read all the posts to make your own judgement).

And yes - I don't see the ability to pay bills there now either. Sad

Hopefully either that service will be able to return or others will be able to build up something similar.

Yes, I have read all the posts and reached my own judgement :-)

Looks like the reason it was the top result for me was most likely because somebody had recently added to the thread.


I am very much interested in bitcoin as it seems a much more secure system without the security issues that our conventional systems have (e.g. paying for things over the Internet by or phone using credit card by revealing your "secrets" to the vendor).

To use bitcoin efficiently and safely, I get the impression it is best to try to avoid having to exchange money between AUD and BTC. This is because it involves banks and exchange agents which are slow and take up anything up to 10% of the funds being exchanged.

This means finding some other way of earning BTC. Selling stuff would seem an ideal way.

Unfortunately, looking at the current environment, it seems that there are many more people trying to sell stuff then to buy stuff. Not to mention nobody seems to know who is running sites like bitmit, what their trustworthiness is like, etc.

One might assume that more people selling then buying would lead to low prices for buyers. However this does not appear to be the case. e.g. Some of the prices I see on bitmit are very much inflated from what I could pay normal retailer in AUD. I think the problem is there is no real incentive to try to sell things in BTC, perhaps because there aren't enough buyers.

Anyway, just my thoughts for the moment.

^are you in I.T.?

why not make your own bitmit, etc?

the incentive is probably just as you said earlier, it's a way to get their hands on BTC without actually buying any.

I bought my first bitcoin from Jeremy. I stopped pretty quick when I discovered I was paying about Gox+10%. Still, I have no complaints against him.

Yup - unfortunately it isn't an easy thing to buy bitcoins at a price that isn't well over Gox unless you are able to trade person to person.

Bank wire to Bitstamp wasn't that difficult, actually.

Indeed - provided that you aren't wanting to only buy a small amount of BTC then bank wires are the best option.

I have finally found this. The Aussie avalon group buy technically brought me here. I'm from melbourne.

I usually get bitcoin from bitinnovate (no affiliation with myself). I did google search a couple of them came out and I just did some comparison. Do you guys know any better option?
