Have you already acquired BTC and are interested in trading to profit from price fluctuations, or do you want to buy your first bitcoins?
If it's the former then you could try BTC-E or bitfinex, as they don't require you to submit your dox, stool samples, etc. if you're not planning on withdrawing or depositing fiat currencies.
If it's the latter then most exchanges will ask for the dox, but you can avoid this hassle if you decide to buy through localbitcoins.
Thank you malevolent for your posting.
In answer to it:
I did earn some free BTC already. I don't think it's enough to trade with (yet), but I AM interested in the subject. I guess the wisest thing to do, untill that time, is to read more about it and gain more information on how trading with it works. Maybe it's the thing for me, in future, too? From what I've read till so far is that some earned a decent amount with it. But, I've also read about people that lost a decent amount.
And so your answer leeds to the following question: 'If one (a newbie like me) wants to have more information about it, what sources (articles, website, books, documentaries if there are any, etc...) would you recommend?'
And about the 'latter' .. thank you for this tip. I will get into 'localbitcoins' as well, and try to learn more first.
So, I guess you can read from my posting, I am really still a newbie on all of this stuff, but willing to learn. Thank you for making a little bit wiser. If you have more tips or suggestions ... plz do so!
Back to the subject of Mt. Gox ....
Quite disturbing news I've read. Mt. Gox suspended withdrawals. I've read something about technical issues and hope they overcome it in short periode of time. BTC rate plunged into the deep with -20% and more, and japanese are selling like hell!! Those are the stories on the internet I've read. All the more reason, if one is a newbie like me, to first gain more information on trading with BTC, before doing so.
