Hi everyone

I am building several Bitcoin related sites that I wish to operate anonymously inside Tor, due to legal issues.  Right now I am developing a casino site (roulette, blackjack, and possibly bingo are planned to start with, branching out into other games later) as well as a coin laundry service that will also offer standard escrow in addition to anonymous escrow which will allow both people in the transaction to keep their respective Bitcoin addresses and transaction ids secret from each other, using the laundry system to hide the coin sources.

Since both sites will involve the handling of other peoples money, I will need to establish a positive rep on this identity before anyone will trust me.  What ideas do you all have as far as an anonymous person trying to get a good reputation?

Thanks
Silas

I'd suggest having the games starting really small. Below 1 BTC. As you are around a while people would be more willing to play with more.

It is a long, slow process. I should know Smiley

Basically just be transparent with your users and they will likely give you a try and slowly build more trust.

Many start by just sending 1 coin, and then withdrawing it immediately - out and out scam checking. Then they may send the coin back, bet it, and if they win withdraw it immediately. Then slowly they will send larger amounts, checking the withdrawal system often, making sure bets/payoff amounts are exact, etc.

Getting a few positive reviews in the forums or other bitcoin related sites helps (http://www.bitcoinbulletin.com/2011/03/13/bowling-for-bitcoins-meet-the-trader-02/ - seemed to drive some users) - even just a simple 'Ya, I won and I got paid' can really help. Eventually people will start sending 10,50,100 coins or more if they like your service.

Good luck with your site.

You could also use my newly established site, www.bitcoinfeedback.com, to start building a reputation!
