All cryptos are FIAT digital currency. Do not use.

I'd say this practice is tolerated by the forum because of how nearly impossible this would be to stop. Any attempt would be a waste of time/resources and will only serve to benefit the sellers as the price will skyrocket. eg. it will turn into a crypto war on account selling.

It is allowed to sell publicly accounts. It is also allowed to have more than 1.

I'm not here to debate that. You missed the point I was making.

You also may not be aware of the fact that many/most forum users do not approve of this practice. Those that do, tend to stand out. Wink

You are allowed to sell accounts, but many people look down on it, and some people may even distrust you for it.

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.

This. If you want to gain reputation, earn it yourself.

You are profiting by spamming us with your sig/advertisements.

Why are you not surprised at how that is allowed or any different than selling the entire account ?

Wasted resources aside, if a ban on either practice was to be implemented, this would make BTCtalk no different than most other fascist/big brother run forums.

As it has been answered, yes Forum accounts are allowed to be bought or sold, and you may have more than one. The reason being, it would be impossible for the staff to weed out all account sales and multiple accounts. We just couldn't do it, so by allowing it, everyone is aware that it happens and knows to watch out for it if they need to. If we said no buying/selling accounts and no alt accounts allowed, the many people who could slip through the cracks would be able to do far more damage, as the community wouldn't be on guard the same way it is now.

That being said, buying/selling accounts isn't always bad, people can use the accounts for paid signature advertising, giveaways, and whatnaught, rather than using them to scam. There are scammers, and those that use alts responsibly. Some people have alt/purchased accounts so that they may speak their mind without fear of people associating certain ideals or policies to them. For example, and established business may not like to post their personal opinions which may be unpopular on the account that also is used to faciliate trade.

I hope this clears it up a bit better.

Imo, this and for advertising space is the only legitimate reason for buying Bitcointalk accounts. Even if you're a legitimate business owner, you shouldn't buy an account, mainly because people will notice and accuse you of being a scam.

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.

I think it is ok if the account is a 'support' account for one of the bitcoin services if the service is sold to an investor. Personal accounts I'm not so fond of the idea.

Of course, I think most people expect that to happen, e.g if I own "EpicDice_PR" and sell the company, said buyer gets "EpicDice_PR".
