I prefer Intersango. They seem to be very concerned with security, I've done quite some business with them already, and had nothing but positive experiences so far.

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

I know MtGox is huge.  I assume they are popular for a reason.  Any input regarding them?

The coin might be anonymous, but I see these faucets everywhere, and none of them are anonymous - they have ads.

When you transact and buy something, you have to leak your identity to the seller.

Likewise, if you sell something, you are probably going to have to leak your identity to compete in the market.

Well, online wallets like the one offered by blockchain.info is reasonably safe because the private keys only exist client side. They are encrypted with your password before they're uploaded, so the worst thing that could happen is blockchain.info suddenly disappearing, or deleting your account, or whatever. But that's what backups are for. I don't believe they suddenly could steal all their users' money (well unless they secretly inject some malware in their javascript, but that would be detected soon enough).

Having said so, I rather trust my private keys ONLY to a dedicated Linux machine that is never connected to the internets.

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

I understand what you're saying and I agree mostly, but I've had some coins disappear back during the whole MyBitcoin fiasco and it just left a bad taste. I try and keep them all offline and encourage others aswell.

trade4co.in, card4co.in, convertbitco.in, 4bitco.in, exchangeco.in, swapbitco.in, cards4co.in, b1t.co.in, cash4co.in
