It seems to be pretty new. Like less than a week. I want to sell BTG here, but looks very unreliable. Spelling errors, broken pages. Any one have any good experience with this?

I cant sell it in any other place. No wallet accepts deposit. How do I sell now?

Looks like another ShapeShift/Changelly style website. But I never heard of this website, so why use it?
I would just use an exchange to manually sell my BTG.

You can use this website to see every market that has BTG pairs: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin-gold/#markets

Red flags are all over dude. Its a new site and what have you seen, there are a a lot of spelling errors and broken pages. For me its good as saying goodbye to you coins. So my .2 BTC is too stay away from it. Just look for more trusted website before you lost all your BTG.

Bitgold official twitter account @bitcoingold endorsed (retweeted) them. That's the only reason I trusted them. Mistake cost me $100k Sad

Never heard of this one and this being a new website should give you some warning that you shouldn't deal with them. First time that I went to their website provided me an "error loading page" message. I did get through after 3 attempts and with just that information, it smells trouble. Their website is, for the lack of better word, somehow "rip-off" with so many incorrect spellings and not working pages. Stay away from them and find another exchange that will trade your BTG.  Wink

"502 Bad Gateway"

And yep, it seems like both guarda wallet and the actual bitcoin gold twitter account endorsed changenow.io. Not sure why exactly, whether they have partnered up with them or they are simply getting paid to say that.

Even though the site is down, when i saw their twitter account there was a latest tweet coming from 27m ago.

Could be just down for maintenance. But no official notice on why this is happening.

The site looks legit to me, and since they seemingly have partnerships with so many people they are most likely to be legit to some degree. I still don't see any reason to be using them apart from BTG transactions, though.

The site is back up now. Not sure what the reason is like you said it could just be maintenance.

Changed my BitcoinGold for Bitcoin today. After i saw your reviews here i thought "shit my money is gone..that was a scam". But after a delay of nearly 2,5 hours i really recived my Bitcoin. So maybe you have to wait a little due to BTG Network..

So my review is: its not a scam, but you have to wait a little Wink

It is a scam. And "review" by domgreen with 1 forum post doesn't count much Smiley.

I can understand that it does not count much Grin

try to contact them on their facebook page. They write back quickly. Maybe they can see whats wrong with your transaction.
My BTG payment needed nearly 10 confirmations before they paid my BTC.

Still didn't receive the BTC in exchange of your BTG? If you haven't contacted the support yet, I think you should do so support@changenow.io
@ChangeNOW_io seems to be active on twitter answering people to send an email to support and will be assist further. Since you've mentioned that it was endorsed by @bitcoingold, maybe the team checked how trusted the service is.

@OP didn't update here, I wonder if he used the site or just waited for an exchange.

This doesn't make the service more trustworthy. The Bitcoin Gold team also "endorsed" a website that helped people claim their BTG but also kept all the users seeds and resulted in a loss of over $1 million. Of course they removed the site from their page after some time. But this shows how careless they are.

Here is a thread about the scam: https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/7dsmvd/my_analysis_of_the_1_million_usd_mybtgwalletcom/

If that's the case, then the problem is in the BTG team already. People with BTG probably trust what they say/post rather than random results in the web. As they endorsed a service, people (may be not all but there will always be) will think that it's trusted and use it.

Democratizing Global Trade - ICO NOW LIVE

It seems to be pretty new. Like less than a week. I want to sell BTG here, but looks very unreliable. Spelling errors, broken pages. Any one have any good experience with this?

I cant sell it in any other place. No wallet accepts deposit. How do I sell now?

Now that BTG is listed on Bittrex and other sites it's become a lot easier to sell it if you want to. But yeah, i find that changenow.io is still the best and most convenient way to do it, and it's pretty much the same as changelly so if you're comfortable with operating changelly you'll find no problems with operating changenow.

my experience is that one, don't expect transactions to be instant. It took around 30 mins for my deposit to even show up.

Two, they take around 0.001 BTC in transaction fees if you exchange BTG to BTC, which is not noted at the beginning of the transaction. Just watch out for that.

Endorsed by actual bitcoin gold development team or at least saying so on twitter so the chances of them going scam would be much less likely than if it was just a random site that was dug up on google. You can trust them with anything under $1k in my opinion.

Anything over, still use the traditional exchanges like HitBTC or Bittrex. It's going to get you better rates and you don't need to worry about counterparty risk as much as you would with changenow.io, even though there has been no allegations of scam yet.

Used this for BTG -> BTC, went seamlessly.
