basically, loaning BTCs won't be feasable until someone comes up with a way to force repayment. Since everything is pretty much anonymous, there is no way to insure collection. How do you break a guy's legs when you don't know where in the world he is?

Why do u need to break someone's leg to collect the money ? dude that is SO ancient !


Anyway if anyone were to lend me some coins I'd gladly invite them to my home first & let them check me out first !

it all comes down to trust in the end ( and noisy pcs ) but mostly trust

someone could be 100% honest and asking for a small loan to test something out
they could be a scammer they also could be the prince of persia

the entire bitcoin system is based on it i sell a coin i trust ill get $ for it i might not its a risk and one ive yet to take no $ for coins Sad
any thoughts on the whole trust issue

I'd love to loan ppl BTC if we had some sort of a site that acted as a middleman. Obviously most ppl on this thread (including me) cant be trusted yet since we're all newbies...

I intend on changing that soon tho =] [=

What you're describing isn't a new problem. Marketplaces have solved it m by having a means for buyers to rate sellers (and vice versa) as well as having an escrow system. A good example is PayPal.

bitcoin could do that to if the addresses wernt cryptic and avalable at whim  sure we could open a registrar site but that would only work for goods and trades done on forum i feel a escrow/clearing house is needed even a trustworthy mediator would do

as to the op im sorry if i could help i would,
