Mt. Gox and Bitcoinmarket are pretty much dead right now because of lots of payments with stolen credit cards. As theymos says in the buybitcoins.com closes
thread "Such a high rate of chargebacks does not bode well for future CC->BTC trades, no matter what intermediary companies are used." So credit cards are out. What to do?
How about markets using bank transfers? Stealing bank accounts are a lot harder than stealing credit cards. Within Europe bank transfers are usually free of charge although a couple of days slow. I guess it's the same within the USA and other places? So at least there could be a functioning european bitcoin market using bank transfers. Maybe even a global one some place where banking and currency exchange laws are not too bad.
Is this viable? Problems? Pitfalls?
