Hi

Is the newbie hangout a good place to get an answer to this question :

It seems that the only way to trade in alternative currencies like devcoin, namecoin is to get bit coin first and then trade for alt's at an exchange.
Can you generate addresses and keys off line (cold storage) for alt currencies just like you can with bit coin od do you have to trust the exchange with your address and keys ?

Hi Jed, welcome to the forum. In general, yes, that is an easy way. Buy BTC first, then move/sell to an exchange that handles the alts you are interested in. There are probably several offline generators, here is one for litecoin.

Hello fellow newbies! I've gotta say, this whole digital cryptocurrency mining business is pretty interesting stuff. I just started mining several various alt coins a few days ago and already have exchanged what I've mined for about 0.25BTC. So it looks like I'll be buying a dedicated mining machine now.

I'm having to restrain myself some with the Exchanges too. I got a little addicted to the Steam Market when they first released trading cards, but alt currency trading is so much more interesting with the exchange rates going all over the place so much.

What's a good machine for mining altcoins?  GPU rig?

Hey Guy's, Yup I'm A Newbie,...why am i here... Hummmm, well quite obvious BITCOIN.

But first of all, about me, Err sorry if there is another thread for "Getting to know you"
I started to get lost amongst the traffic, My location "Tasmania"

My name Alan, And have been around the place for over 30 years, and yes I'm ANCIENT...l.o.l some of my friends call me "Uncle Alan"...Cheeky young pups.

I'm 80 years old with a mind of a 20 year old, and fascinated by these BITCOINS, Don't know anything about them
so i need to start researching them, And Buy Myself A Pick And Shovel, I Understand You Have To Mine Them

However,,,(love that word) I have noticed many other Digital currencies
floating out there in hyperspace. Looks like there are several there with top value.

I'll wander around the place here, and start to read, thanks for the mods and the owner of this forum for the invitation.

Cheers

Alan

Can you generate addresses and keys off line (cold storage) for alt currencies just like you can with bit coin od do you have to trust the exchange with your address and keys ?

I think at least btc-e trades the namecoin <=> usd pair, so you can buy namecoins for us dollars?
