No one has mentioned the obvious: Bitcoins are a form of currency, and how do you normally go about getting currency? You 1) earn it. 2) beg, borrow, or steal it. 3) inherit it.

I recommend the first option.

Still around.

Theres many ways to sell, trade, buy bitcoins and gain trust.  One is that bitmarket.eu  what they do is show your trustworthy by your ebay account and your trust on there, if you dont have an ebay account theres other way to prove its you.  THis helps.  Also there is no need for trust to mine bitcoins, buy and sell and trade bitcoins on an exchange.  Trust only comes in to play if you send bitcoins for a product to a random person or website or vice versa. 

Then you just want to encrypt your wallet and not keep to many coins in your wallet, so not too tough.

We live in such a nasty world.

So true. But bitcoin's issues here aren't any worse than cash, it's just easier for you to do business with anyone anywhere.

One method of getting bitcoins you don't hear much is Ripple. Ripple is basically a peer-to-peer clearinghouse for credit transfers, bitcoin is just one of the currencies supported. It only attempts transfers between folks who already trust each other, but it creates a web of trust so credits can practically be transfered to anywhere once you've got a good trust network.

If you worry about being scammed, you should check it out.

website? also, do you just transfer money to someone for bitcoins?

Sign up for one of the exchanges, transfer funds from bank account to liberty reserve or dwolla, take funds and put them in your account at BT7, Tradehill, or Mt. Gox and then start buying bitcoins. If you need a referral to Bitcoin7 or Tradehill check my sign below.

If you're looking to sign up for an exchange try Bitcoin7 or Tradehill, referral codes are listed below. Sign up for Tradehill and get 10% off of every trade you ever make.
