There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

If you don't know if you can trust someone, stop and ask around.  Don't put your money on the line on a hunch that "things should be fine".  There are a lot of startup scams looking to take your money, and given that legit sites are popping up as well, it can be hard to tell the difference.

A lot of people will learn this the hard way with BTC, especially as more and more ordinary Joes start using it.

That's why this thread is here.  If you want to put a chunk of your money somewhere new, you'd better do your research and discover all possible points of failure.  Then protect against them using a COLD WALLET and TRUST NO ONE.

Use Escrow if needed, use it from a TRUSTED MEMBER that has a good WoT rating (this is arguable, I know, but every little bit helps), and make sure there are no questions from any of the 3 parties before starting a transaction.

Good luck people.  Stay safe and read up on everything.

Is there not a whitelist here, where people who have made a succesful transaction name eachother?

Wouldn't scammers just then vouch for each other?

I guess Skype is an awesome way of communication and to gain trust. That's why I guess good traders should make it public.

Any advice on these marketplaces:
  • Vircurex;
  • Bitcoin-24;
  • Mt.Gox?
Also, are there mining pools to stay away from? (Right now I'm getting acquainted with Slush's pool, Mt.Red, Triplemining, Eligius, Bitpenny, ABCpool.)
I'm fairly new with Bitcoin the mining and so on, you see.

They are easier to steal than gold.

Well if you want to trust nobody its up to you...

I trust all, or give the chance, i risk little or a lot depending on many things...and if I take a loss, i consider it a small one and move on.

Never risk too much but then again a scared investor doesn't make money.

We are new and our group has done 3-5 times our BTC Smiley

Still with a few bucks only we are experiment and testing services/exchanges and trading post.
