Anybody know of or heard of any BTC friendly ebay type sites? If not are any in the making? I think this would highly benefit the growth of our beloved bitcoin. Thoughts? Im zero down to trade over a forum with people I dont know without a maybe MtGox type site being the intermediate of the sales. Id attempt to make one but Im pretty sure anything I make would last about .01 seconds against any hacking efforts.

I was just thinking the same thing.  The only way it would be successful is if there's a way to protect us from scammers.

Feedback on ebay works well although it puts honest new traders at a disadvantage and doesn't help with cracked accounts.

Escrow would work but means trusting a third party which we should avoid if possible.

How about tying selling accounts to a bitcoin address? It would be perfect security except where the cracker has the wallet.dat of the seller. This would break the anonymous nature of bitcoin a little but I think that's ok for a public action site.


Also don't put 'bay' anywhere in the name. Ebay might just sue.

the charges on ebay do seem quite high - sales taxes on things that have already had their sale taxes paid.

There are already plenty of places that take bitcoins. Most deal in intangible stuff much like bitcoins.

I would say that the only place where physical goods are bought with bitcoins, is on these forums and others like it. Does anybody know of anything different?

Well, there's this one:

That's about as Bitcoin-friendly as you can get, I think!

I'm currently checking out www.bitmit.net and it seems cool, i'll try use it for something shortly and see how it all pans out. FYI i found it via www.spendbitcoins.com which seems to be a decent site with a list of places to buy stuff with bitcoins.

Bitmit have blacklisted my email address for trying to create an account via Tor and aren't responding to emails.

It's frustrating as hell, if I were a scammer I could just create another email address and sign up via phproxy or proxychains and be done with it, but trying to maintain a single identity to establish trust as an honest person is awkward.

Does anyone know who runs this service here so I can contact them / stalk them to see if they're ignoring my emails? I heard it was sold a while back.

Silkroad has a feedback system to allow sellers to earn rep.

I haven't heard of any sites like this. It'd be nice if they existed.
