Why are there so many newbie restrictions?  This is a pain.

I wonder if in the long run the different scams and other issues of having to rely so heavily on trust wil not hamper Bitcoin development  Embarrassed

I mean I believe that Bitcoin as a future (I'm about to invest a little in this adventure) but at this point I'm trying to figure out a way to somewhat smoothens the issues around having to trust.

On a side note, sorry if I massacre english a bit. I'm doing my best since it's not my first language.

Regards.

Trust is always a tricky one, even in real life. It reminds me of a time I tried to buy a camera in a shop in NYC. We agreed on a camera model with a lens and price, then the shopkeeper switched lenses on the camera when my back was turned.

Just wanted to say thanks for this. I am new to this thing, and I was worried about putting a lot of money into bitcoins at the risk of losing my investment or something. Obviously, I have a lot of steps to take security-wise.

Sadly, even the trusted seller, from a shop could abuse of their position in many case.

having no centralized agent controlling bitcoin is a double edged sword, like OP suggests everybody needs to be careful and MORE knowledgeable.
basically no centralized agent is going to protect you in also in the fine prints.
