I read about bitcoins on the internet. I just started mining bitcoins but I'm not getting rich very fast, I think I may be losing more money on electricity than I am gaining in bitcoins. What am I doing wrong?

You're not doing anything wrong.  That is how the bitcoin market is right now.  Unless you have cheap electricity rates or a very efficient rig/computer then you will break even.  However in the last two/three weeks the BTC price has jumped about $0.60 per bitcoin.

I run a small company with business all over the globe. I'm planning to start selling my goods and services in exchange for bitcoins, and want to give the Marketplace section a try. How long will it take before I'm able to post there?

Hey, it seems like getting out of the newbie box is going to take awhile.

I'm working on some BitCoin related websites that'll launch as soon as I acquire some more coin and find an area to promote it.

What kind of projects are you working on, or is it secret?

Not secret!

I've ran a 'Free Second Life Linden' site since 2007, and I'm basically going to open one up for BitCoins soon. Where users do things like watch youtube videos/ads, facebook LIKE pages, complete offers, register to sites, etc. and earn BitCoin. In addition to BitCoins users could also withdraw the earned rewards to Second Life, or redeem for amazon gift cards, etc. The site is done, minimum withdrawal is 0.01 BitCoins. I just need to buy/trade for more. Ive traded $L for some, but need more to be on the safe side. On average I'd assume most users would only be able to earn like 0.25 BTC, more only if they put in a lot of effort in 'Tasks'.

Other sites I was thinking about were an online casino where users could compete in skill based games to see who gets the highest amount of points. I'd also like to try my hand at a marketplace.

Those are probably the best three ideas I have. The codes all done from previous projects. Ive had lots of random virtual currency websites over the past few years, so its basically just reworking them for BitCoins and seeing if theres any interest.

Sounds good. I like the skill based games idea. I would love to get down on that.

Thanks for the reassurance, you have confirmed what I thought to be the case. At this rate I'll never recover costs for the used video cards I picked up on Ebay. Oh well, it's still interesting to fool around with bitcoin.

Sounds great, but you will face quite a bit of competition for the site giving users the chance to earn small amounts of bitcoins for doing offers etc, there is already a few of those like freedigitalmoney.com. What incentives will you have for people to use your site over the others?

Hi all,

New Bitcoin user in Ireland here, just ordered a large amount of BTC through get-bitcoin, any other newbies used them before? Feeling a bit scared now in case I didn't do enough research.  Undecided Or are there any other BTC users from Ireland on this forum?

I've not used get-bitcoin, but they have a fairly good reputation here on the forums as far as I can tell.

Hi everyone,

What exchanges are other newbies using?

I have tried Intersango so far. It was easy to setup but not much traffic for USD/BTC. Still haven't made it through the Mt.Gox verification process, o well. Any good experiences with other exchanges for USD/BTC?

Maybe you're spending to much time trolling, and not enough time mining.

Hiya. I'm a guy and I do things. Website designer and developer, mainly. Came to offer my services as a designer in the marketplace, as I saw a great many sites that seemed in need of a little house cleaning.
