I've sold a few pairs of sneakers/trainers to people on here. However, I did scam them all. Obviously don't deal with one-post newbies or if you have to use a trusted escrow.

Don't you mean 'hundreds of dollars in BTC'?

TMAN has been a member since 2013, so he may well have spent hundreds of Bitcoin. I bet he wishes he had kept them though. Smiley

TheNewAnon135246 is being a dick.. he knows what I spent with him alone.

Hey everyone,

Just a random question out of curiosity - Has anyone ever purchased something through BitcoinTalk and successfully received the goods?

I know there is a marketplace section but seems like there are scam accounts all over there. Newbie accounts with one post etc.


Interested to hear the responses!  

If you look through my trust ratings you can see many satisfied users that have purchased goods on this site dating back many years (probably one of the better examples of this forum's successful trading history, just ignore the negative ratings from scammy idiots like TMAN).  Some of the larger purchases have been in the six figure dollar range for a single transaction.  As long as you are dealing with reputable members and using established escrow agents, you will likely avoid issues.

I have done some currency exchanges, given loan to users and so far all gone smooth. There are good people around among few bad. You just need to have good experience with the community and it comes from years or months of active presence in here.

I see its not just OgNasty is doing business here in the forum by selling products.
Physical coins were bought from the users who made them and inquiries and transactions are being done in the forum. There is no other way for the buyer to receive it than sending it to them probably thru UPS. There were lots of the treads in goods section, you should be checking the threads to see for yourself.

Users will likely become more and more willing to meet in person to make trades as the value of physical bitcoins increases.

I recall one purchase I've made in the past... a physical coin. You wanna buy it?

It's a NastyFans 5oz silver physical bitcoin with 5 minted seats which collect a little bitcoin dust every year. You could have everything its collected over the past 4 years PLUS any dust in the future! It would be just like you're joining the club in 2015 -- instant old timer! PLUS it also makes a great looking paper weight.

OgNasty just said physical bitcoins will rise in value though, so it's even tougher to let this go now, but I'm willing to sell it for the price I bought it for... ~1.6BTC. Since your new, I'll even cut you a huge deal -- 1BTC w/free shipping!  Shocked  Embarrassed

It's a steal of a deal!!  PM if interested!!  Roll Eyes

I'd say "/sarcasm" here.. but IF you wanna buy it -- I'm serious!! Cheesy

....Keep your BTC or buy BTC!

Yes. I bought two Casascius coins from Camolist back in the day. They arrived just fine and nice and quick. I didn't do escrowing.

I can't see myself ever bothering with conventional goods, especially cardable ones. Even if they arrive you never know the source of the funds and whether your card is marked because of it.

I think that I haven't bought anything through Bitcointalk. I'm just not that kind of person who are looking to buy something on online forum.
I'm not much interested in collectibles, so I haven't bought any physical coins. Also, I haven't tried to mine coins, so I haven't bought mining hardware. Digital good like accounts, subscriptions and etc also isn't very interesting for me.
But I thing that if you're using common sense, it's safe enough to buy here. You just must use escrow, don't buy from random newbies and also avoid things which can be illegal or obtained in shady ways, like Netflix or Bet365 accounts.

I've spent hundreds of BTC over the years, made some great friends from it as well - check out the collectibles section fella

Don't you mean 'hundreds of dollars in BTC'?

If he is an old timer btc was 5 bucks a coin  when  I started here.

I have old  btc addresses that have had 325 coins come in and go out.

Most of them were when coins were very cheap.


Doing business on bitcointalk  has worked for me.

But I had a 10 year old established ebay business when I came here.  I used that  to help me here and used bitcointalk to help me with ebay.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Nice to know you’re still a fan. Cheesy

I've wanted a physical coin for a while, and like I said before, I like the concept of NastyMining/NastyFans, not to mention the coin looks great... and given the commendable effort you have put forth towards the bitcoin community in general, I have no doubts about the potential for success in the Nasty* Brand. If it ends up being a loss on my end, hopefully you can put it to good use. Long story short, I'm in for one Tongue

Nice to see you're still able to cherry pick quotes.  Lips sealed  Grin

I'm feeling awfully witty today.


(EDIT #2)
Edit: ibminer, weren't you the guy who offered to host a miner on our behalf and then when I sent it to you we never saw it again?

Not sure if you're trying clever wordplay here or not but outside of a 5oz coin, you never sent me anything.

The only time you and I had a discussion about a miner was when I was offering you 2 miners I already owned for free so you could use them, for additional seats. I believe you told me to post them in the thread and give them away to someone else. I kept my miners.  (my edit: ok, I thought I offered them (2 miners) for free but my memory was off -- had to go back and check the messages.)


EDIT#3 (Og is playing edit games, disappointing.  Undecided   I'll try to keep each edit here as I see them.)

I've wanted a physical coin for a while, and like I said before, I like the concept of NastyMining/NastyFans, not to mention the coin looks great... and given the commendable effort you have put forth towards the bitcoin community in general, I have no doubts about the potential for success in the Nasty* Brand.

^ Like your edits?? (sorry, still feeling witty today... Smiley )

Look, I'm just trying to educate the newbie whom is asking about making purchases and you started circling like a shark, referencing your feedbacks, of which I am a part of. Where did I lie in my post?

I fully accept it was an unwise investment on my behalf.. but my decision was made based on how the concept was described to me in 2015 and who I thought I was dealing with in 2015. Live and learn, I guess.

Everything I've said is the truth.

You really don't want to start pulling out old PMs. I honestly have no interest in causing you any further damages to you or your organization and I'd prefer you not make me put you or me in any awkward situations. And no, this isn't a threat, just know that I will not have someone call me a liar when it is not true. It's unfair and uncalled for.

Just FYI - typical OG did an edit immediately after you posted your reply.  Guess you pressed his button :/

I'm working with a legitimate agency to create legitimate coins on a regular basis with artwork supplied by the community.  I'd dump that scammy garbage while it's still worth something.

OGNasty scammed over 1,000 btc from this community in his pirate passthrough ponzi. 
Previous investigations:  OG vs Lauda (2018)  OG vs TMAN (2017)  OG vs Owlcatz (2018)  OG vs Twitchyseal (2018)  OG vs Lupin (2016)  After all these complaints, OG was removed as the sole forum treasurer in early 2019.

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.  I hope you do come out with coins.  I look forward to seeing how they stand up to the same criticism you give other makers and using your own words against you to justify calling you a scammer.  Grin


Very simple... I'll register a business, charge sales tax, and not scam anyone.  Grin

I'm genuinely excited.

You took after Al Capone - saw weak enforcement and made a killing.   History remembers him, as it will you, as a corrupt scammer.

I'm genuinely excited.

I think that's just another lie.   Tongue  But it is time to build a road map on how to legitimize crypto.
