Hello all,

I'm hoping to do my first trade this week for BTC, and would obviously prefer to use escrow.

I've searched the forums as best I can (the keyword escrow doesn't exactly narrow things down) but I am having difficulty finding some really basic info...

What is the usual charge or % for escrow?
Where can I find a list of recommended people to ask for the service?

Thanks for any help,

Rit.

There's a list of trusted escrows here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=108716.0

Some charge and some are free, but tips are usually welcomed.

Just be aware that escrows -can- scam you, so only use people that are approved and on the list that hilariousandco linked.

It can't be that well maintained if John (John K.) is number 1 on there currently. The other trusted escrow list should be updated too really.

I think you need to get the community to maintain it then Grin. Something as important as an escrow list should always be as up to date as possible.
