I think its great that people can buy things with bitcoin, but with the high amount of fraud Ive seen -- ill send my bitcoins to exchange, turn them into USD and then make my purchases...

Is this current or historical (adjusted to exchange rate, I guess)?

I was selling a house for bitcoins for a while, though it was sold already and unfortunately not for btc. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1617.0

that's cheap: 250 g is worth 9 750 USD in 2010 average gold price. That's 5.40 USD for one BTC. Even if the 2011 gold price is higher.

1800 btc is worth $19,800... so how is that cheap... sounds like double the price.

I agree with you.

If someone insists on paying me in bitcoins I will tell him to convert it on MtGox then send it to me.

Why can't you do that instead?

The two options are (a) send bitcoins, convert to USD; (b) send USD.  If I were selling a car, I would rather be paid in bitcoins than cash.  I have no way of verifying that cash is genuine; I can't rely on paypal to go unreversed; I can't rely on a bank transfer or a credit card; I trust a bitcoin transfer though -- real value has been transferred to me.  The price volatility would mean I would convert to fiat pretty rapidly; but for "sending" money, bitcoins win.

Fraud is nothing to do with bitcoin, the problem there is that the victims weren't used to working with true digital cash; but that is a sword that cuts both ways -- send me some bitcoins and I know they are mine.

Really?!?  I'd much rather be paid with an irreversible, unfakable, instant-transfer, low-fee money. In fact, when I see a Bitcoin payment come through to me, I'm relieved because I know at that point my risk is zero.

Interesting thread...

I'm not trying to hijack it, but it might be more relevant to see the most expensive thing actually sold, since anyone can ask an outrageous price and not actually have a transaction.

Not sure about more expensive, but on another thread someone's selling a 1999 Hyundai Elantra for 750 BTC... definitely the most overpriced  Grin
