Hello,

I have been trying for days to transfer some Fiat into the crypto-currencies world, but it's been so hard/slow.

I started with Dwolla and lqpay in the end, but they are super slow to clear...
I could not find any easy and fast way to do so...
I am in US, so no SEPA wire possible... and US wires that take 4 days... that's too slow...

Am I missing anything?

Thanks!

Thanks gents!

I just looked at both and this is my understanding:
- With bitfloor cash at Bank Of America seems like a good deal, I have one in front on my place, and one in front of my work. It's still annoying to not be able to do it from my computer/phone.
   >   If my understanding is correct, is it better than bitinstant with cash as well?
- with coinbase, it looks it is a wire, so again another 4 days no?

Thanks again!

Coinbase takes a few days to go through, they do an ACH transfer not a wire.  Once you buy it's locked in, you just don't get the coins for a few days.

Do you mean that the order is placed even if the funds are on the way?
If so, how does it work for the sellers? when do they get the funds?

Thank you!

If you want coins right away without any hassle, and will pay a 3%-6% fee on top of your buy to get that, create a blockchain.info wallet and purchase coins directly from them.  Their transfers are about as instant and simple as you'll find anywhere and a decent way to get your first coins.
