This forum definitely needs escrows or some sort of mediator between transactions. I do not think that the number of scams has decreased. Scams are still highly prevalent, but thanks to the work of DT2 members like Cryptodevil and Lauda, many of the forum members know who to trust and not. If the number of scams has decreased it may be due to the decreased number of trades happening in the marketplace. With the birth of sites, like escrow.com or Bitify.com, many people are using such bots and other more trustworthy sites for trading. I don’t know about the escrow thread. It is a good idea. Maybe it is worth a shot. After all it can only have a positive effect on the community, right? It won’t hurt to have such a thread. I would say go for it.

I guess the forum is crowded with escrows but there will always be a need for more trusted people in here. Not all escrows are available from time to time so others are, there will be interruption with the scheduling for trades and deals so I guess we need more to have a lot of choice.

For me personally if it wants to do transaction one of the things that I really need to get is the self data and clear evidence from someone who will transact with me. Because then I would be a little more confident in them, actually for escrow I also prefer it but now there are many escrow that turns their thinking finally leads to escape all customer's money. This is hard but we must always be vigilant and careful, usually a good escrow is what can be invited to communicate well

This would depend on a certain person if he would really accept the risk on transacting on other people without any escrows this is why these kind of services do exist because some people dont really have confidence on making transactions on random people on the net. Talking on need for more escrows in the forum,i can say that it isnt bad to start such service as long there are people would use you to be the middle man but i would say that competition with other reputable escrows would really be a tough thing.

Escrows are always useful and a much-needed thing on the forum in any case. Even though the number of scams has reduced, there has to be a good choice of escrows

I think we need more escrow in this forum cause the number of trusted member is too little with the number of deal or transaction made everyday Smiley)). That why sometime we have to wait too long to make a deal using escrow so some person often make a deal without escrow and it's the main reason why a lot of people in this forum scammed Smiley
That is not a reason, the real reason that many people do not use escrow is because this generates an additional cost and they are trying to save a few dollars by not using escrow then when they get scammed they blame everyone other than themselves because they thought they can deal with bitcoin without escrow and that they were not going to get scammed.
The escrow service costs were not that big, the amount that we spend on escrow give the buyer and seller a trust on the transaction. Escrow services were rendered by few trusted members of our forum. Other than this there are some ventures like bitpay who have been doing the same.
I’m not complaining about the costs, what I’m saying is that many people try to save money when they perform a transaction and hiring an escrow generates an additional cost and then some people prefer to take the risk of not using an escrow but the big problem as we know is there are many scammers in bitcoin taking advantage of the fact that it is impossible to chargeback bitcoin transactions.

Also some escrows that were trusted could make a mistake and lose the trust of the community or they simply get tired of being an escrow or have made so much money with bitcoin that they no longer need to perform their escrow activities to earn money, so when you begin to think about all the things that could make an escrow quit then there is no doubt in my mind that we can never have too many escrows.

Well, I’m not used to making use of the escrows and the rest. When I buy online, I do so on sites with integrity. Even if I want to use escrow, I wouldn’t do it with just anyone. There are right places to such.

Escrows is a must in this forum and if we're talking about numbers that is not a problem so many old members here with high trust that can we relied on. We should not always rely on they're presence as they also have they're personal life out of this forum, so be a trusted member of this forum even just doing what is right and report for what think is wrong. It needs teamwork and cooperation after all.

Sure the forum have a lots of escrow but we didn't know who are gonna be trusted and who's not.
I've read some escrow are scammers like after they got the allotted budget for the campaign they just burst out like bubble. And this really saddens the investors and the trust issues are getting higher. As a result, escrows reputation is at risk and things got compromised. So better to pick those who are really known and have clean records.

It's really hard to tell whether on who is trusted among them since anytime if they will be out trust by the shining money anytime they might scam some people here and it really happens since there are history of escrow scamming happened way back then. And we should used those trusted guys vigilantly and don't try to pull huge money upon using an peer to peer escrow service here.

escrow is very important to minimize cheating.
i think this forum needs a lot of reliable escrow because of the increasing number of trades in this forum.

I don't know much how does a escrow is chosen or they was being voted to be on that position. But what i think is better as I have many bad experienced from many scammers ruining service section without paying tasks that has been done. I hope escrow is a must and will be banned the OP without hiring so. They're abusing the demand of users and hiding from accounts that is either newbies or even with ranks.

Hey everyone.

I've noticed that there has been a smaller number of scams (at least from what I've seen) than there used to be in the past year or so.

However, this made me think if the forum still had a need for escrow services or not. On one hand, if the scams are lowering, it doesn't make sense to flood the forums with escrows. However, on the other hand, escrows are very useful for every deal here.

I'm asking this question because I, myself, am wondering about making an escrow thread to keep the trading community here safer.
Having additional escrow on the forum shouldn't really be a problem. It is a service and cannot be too much on the forum as long as the person in question can do it effectively. If you are willing, you can go ahead as you are a hero member along with green trusts.

But escrow should not be done for profit motto as it is kind of welfare related hence I believe people should come forward to provide escrow for making bitcoin world scam free. Conducting escrow for free of cost will make people adopt bitcoins more intensively.

There has been already few trusted escrows on this forum but still people are getting scammed; they prefer to take risk than paying the fees to the escrows. Yes, there is need of more affordable escrow service provider in order to reduce the scams. I have also future plan to start a escrow service; before that I have to spend some more time on this forum to increase my forum rank and to gain the trust/reputation on this forum.

But this forum already have plenty of free escrows! I'm sure that there's tons of scammers that want to become escrows just to scam people. It is better to have fewer, but better escrows that more but one that might be scammers.

Escrow is a must, IMO
But people often take the risk of being scammed because they want fast transaction, but not secured.
