"Trust no one" is just so - nonsense. You have to trust your doctor, your bank and the shop you buy your food. The doctor for his ability to cure you, the bank for not just taking your money and the food for not beeing poisoned. But you can of course keep an watchful eye on everybody.

Send me some Bitcent, if you like my comments!

I'm new to Bitcoin and it's good to here this advice, although somewhat unsettling.  Surely there must be somewhere where one could find a mentor, or someone to look up to while learning the ropes of Bitcoin mining!  One could only hope though.

The OP makes some very valid points.

Sadly when money is involved it can change a person & greed can take over.
people should really see bitcoin in the same way they see physical fiat or precious metals, something that should be secured to prevent theft.

Thieves do not just exist in the real world, cyber crime is now more than ever a very real and increasing risk.
Due to how bitcoin works once they have been taken there is very little chance of getting them back.

However its not just theft that you are securing yourself from.
As computers can be very temperamental at times and if your storage device was to corrupt you would lose your bitcoins. By backing up your wallet regularly you can minimize this risk.

Hey everyone, free money! Where do I sign up? Tongue

But seriously, with bitcoin as with everything else, just use some common sense: if something might be a scam, treat it like it is. Especially anything that seems too good to be true!

Hopefully you have family you can trust when it comes to bitcoin.  Unfortunately not everyone has the most trustworthy family, but family>friends>randos on the internet

I guess the best way for a newbie to start selling is if he/she agrees on the terms of the buyer, let it be escrow, sending the goods first, and so on. Hopefully the "community" eventually indeed lets others use the market here as well, to be able to convert assets to BTC.

In the end it is a matter or trust. Just like how we trust our banks and our currencies like the Euro or Dollar. If a Bitcoin broker company keeps his promises, more and more people will start using it. Never make a big transaction the first time you use a new service!

Regarding where to store BTC, I guess it's all about tradeoffs, risks, and risk management. I mean for storing small amounts and conducting small transactions, you would think (hope?) that a leading exchange and using 2-factor authentication would be ok.  But I see your points, especially as the amounts in question get larger.  But if/when size get larger and more material relative to the person, it seems diversification would be in order (to whatever asset classes they see as stores of value against inflation/deflation may be coming).

The more I've learned about bitcoin related topics the more paranoid I've become in general about the world. Coincidence?
