Why does bitcoinary.com redirect to localbitcons? I hadn't followed either site since their founding, but I thought they were separate bit-businesses.

Either it was hacked, or the owner of bitcoinary's referral code to LBC is h7z. I was wondering why I'd open tabs in the background and the bookmark labeled Bitcoinary never got opened. LOL

Be careful, we're getting reports of bank transfers getting reversed on localbitcoin transactions.

Nothing new there. Bank transfers have been getting reversed for as long as people have been using them to pay for bitcoins. It's been pretty well known for years now that a bank transfer is a risky way to accept payment.

I only did cash trades, and always had sufficient BTC on the site, to be able to react quick.
However, localbitcoins state themselves that you are free to do transactions without the site, directly. You then don't have 1% fee. That only makes sense when you don't have to have the bitcoins on the site..
Weird. I believe their mailsupport is quicker than waiting for a reply in this thread.

Is there any place that charts the LocalBitcoins CNY-BTC trading, the way Bitcoincharts used to show LocalBitcoins USD?

What the... i cant believe it. I sent bitcoins to localbitcoins only to be able to contact a buyer of bitcoins i want to trade in cash. Without that i would not been able to contact him. Since he doesnt answer i wanted to contact another buyer but now my previous bitcoin amount is gone. Stuck with the previous buyer. I now have to upload another 4.31 bitcoins only to contact another buyer.

Sorry. Localbitcoins is dead for me now. This is so stupid... sorry. This website once was ok but that is too stupid. And i dont see a way how to get the previous bitcoins out again. At least i cant imagine how my bitcoins can get lost since i want cash. But if i really get useless USD for my Bitcoins only because localbitcoins wants some fee (or whatever they think handling it this way) then i will be really angry. I only wanted to contact the buyer with the least bitcoins to upload. I dont need USD at all.

Any alternative to localbitcoins?

By the way... the website is totally broken in FF 26.

I dont see how i could search for my location to find a local exchanger. The website seems to be for trades over internet but i need cash and want to buy in person.
I can ask in the thread but i doubt that there will be an exchanger near to me then.

You are right - bitcoin-otc is a pain, and has much less liquidity. It was made long before Localbitcoins.

What about meet-ups of bitcoiners in your area? Are there any meetup.com bitcoin groups, or Buttonwood exchanges, or something like Craigslist?

Perhaps, if you can find even a merchant who accepts btc, they will give you paper for it.

First, you can contact any buyer or seller and not lose your BTC or USD.  If you want to contact a BTC seller just open a contract for any amount and start sending messages.

To contact a BTC buyer simply open up a contract for the minimum amount they will accept and start sending messages.  People do this all the time.

Now that you are done talking (or they do not respond) you should be able to simply cancel the contract and get your BTC back.

Let me know if that does not work.  It should.

I use localbitcoins all the time.  It is a great site.  I have never had any issues with it at all so I am very surprised you are having an issue.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

Yes... it appears i dont lose the BTC. But i have to upload them. Im not sure what happens if i cancel a trade before getting an answer. Can the other party answer then still? If not i would need to upload as many bitcoins as needed to meet the minimum exchange value of each trader only to get in touch with them. That wasnt the case a year ago or so.

Any amount isnt possible. You need at least to meet the minimum trading. If a user trades 2000-5000 then you need to upload bitcoins for 2000 fiat. Only to get in touch.

I cancelled now. And i could send them back to my wallet.

I guess its a great site if you would need the bitcoins at the website anyway. Because you want to use SEPA or similar things. But only to being able to contact traders to exchange bitcoins and cash in person you need to upload bitcoins in the height of each traders minimum trading volume? Im not convinced.

You are right - bitcoin-otc is a pain, and has much less liquidity. It was made long before Localbitcoins.

What about meet-ups of bitcoiners in your area? Are there any meetup.com bitcoin groups, or Buttonwood exchanges, or something like Craigslist?

Nothing like that here. I know one trader in my target city but he doesnt have enough fiat now. Looks like i have to use my bank account then as alternative.

Anyway... i liked localbitcoins when i simply could contact traders without the need of uploading many bitcoins... at least there is no risk that the coins vanish because the other trader accepts "the offer" even though it might be for a wrong currency or for a wrong value.

This cannot happen because you have to release them once you are satisfied you have the money for the contract - usually during the face to face meeting.
