That leaves you vulnerable to fraud. The buyer says he didn't like the item or it wasn't as described and he sent it back. He keeps your bitcoins.

Thought of that already, thus the "real" listings would have to take place on established communities I think.  This idea only works when there is already an established base of trust with the other users.   In theory, any forum could be used to test these things, as long as they trust the users they are buying from (who are of course the ones putting up the eBay listings).

Fraud would be the risk in this situation.

The alternative is a system where we cannot sell Bitcoin through eBay at all, I don't like that system lol

Fair enough.

If only there was some secure currency that could be easily and quickly traded over the Internet that wasn't subject to regulation by governments or companies like PayPal -- we could use it to easily buy and sell Bitcoins.

All right, later on today, if I get bored enough, totally making a Parody site that allows you to buy and sell Bitcoins using Bitcoins as the form of currency lol

LOL  Cheesy

I have been selling on evilBay for years and they are fascists dogs!

I'd have thought you wouldn't even try to sell BTC on that place. Also bear in mind they own PayPoo so... fricken figures  Roll Eyes

Can you put up a listing selling a USB stick with a wallet.dat file, with a link pointing to a blockexplorer.com adress showing how many bitcoin are currently in that address? eBay likely won't find it if there is no mention of Bitcoin, and those in the know will know what they are buying and how much is in there.

If my eBay account wasn't banned already, I would try this out.

I put 3 sales on ebay one for 5 bitcoins, the other for 5 bitcoins and the other for 1 bitcoin, last I checked there still active lol.  Let me look again, just put them on last night because I saw people getting 30 bux for a coin when I bought mine for 16 bux.  Not too bad of a quick flip on 11 coins.
