So sometimes I post that I am a local trader of bitcoin in my area on craigslist. So far I have had one bite on this.

Also I search on bitcoin for things to purchase, and always when I sell stuff on craigslist I list that I accept bitcoin.

Do others use craigslist with bitcoin?
if you can explain about Craigslist is that?? it sounds very new to me. whether the name of a place, product or service. I do not laugh with the innocence of this.. lol

I don't and I sell a lot on CL.

Just not worth the effort at this point and so many people think that crypto is scammy I think offereing to accept payment in Bitcoin would lower sales drastically for me.

I often search bitcoin on craigslist but what I find is insane prices of miners. People selling miners for exactly what they paid 5+ months ago. Or sometimes someone selling btc for 30% above preev. To date I have not found anything that I didn't laugh at.

Well, yeah but they are using the Butterfly Labs Sales Theory; "There's a new one born every day!"

Some people will sell their own goods/services on craigslist that they would usually sell for fiat but also offer the option of accepting bitcoin.

Bitcoin or tech in general is not big in the area I live in. I had an ad up for a miner and it got reported? Contacted CL and they said it would be fine to post again (sold it on ebay instead). There were a couple responses to the ad from people in my area.

I'll be selling a window AC and offering a discount if paid in bitcoin, I've considered offering bitcoin as a payment option for one of my rentals but wouldn't expect a good response.

If you negotiate with the sellers appropriately and point out the fact that they have received a certain amount of revenue then they would likely charge you a more appropriate price if you are in the market for a miner.

Craigslist is more for the non-tech savvy portion of the population.

The savvy guys and dolls make out real well though.

So a relevant necro, does anyone have any ideas on how to make craigslist ads where people can pay for the item without a complicated checkout?

While most everyone in bitcoindom may have a mobile wallet with QR scanning, we might all not have a standalone QR scanner app that we can use to open URLs. I thought it was weird when QR codes started appearing on bus and other ads years ago, when all mobile devices didn't have a QR scanner installed by default. And from what I can tell, they still aren't universal.

If this wasn't the case, then each ad could have a QR encoded of https://blockchain.info/payment_request?address=1blahblahblah&amount=0&amount_local=5 to have it float to local fiat. However, that may be too complicated for most. The bitcoin URI standard only allows a bitcoin variable currently, not a fiat value that all wallets can recognize and convert based on whatever market's (or average) ticker_last.

I don't think there's any resource right now where you can take your Electrum master public key and have a bunch of addresses' QRs generated for as many items as you have for sale (including each item's price and title encoded).

I think this a relevant necro. I see things for sale on craigslist.org for BTC, but it is in no way easy or safe to do transactions in this manner in the current c-list environment. Have you tried coinslists.org or coinslist.info or coinslists.com...nevermind, those are not up...yet. What you are looking for is coming soon to a device near you.

Easy, no. Just a matter of coding.

Safe, yes. You don't pay BTC until you have the item in front of you and the seller confirms their address and doesn't let you leave with it until confirming receipt of BTC.

As long as you treat bitcoin as you would treat cash in a CL transaction then bitcoin would be great for CL. The issue is that there are so many scams on CL that people ask to send the bitcoin prior to meeting which is the same as wiring funds to the seller - I shouldn't have to explain further

It's going to be a very long time before Bitcoin becomes an acceptable method of funding on CL, which is why I don't bother with it.

Fiat works just fine.

If someone does not have the excess fiat to purchase bitcoin but has excess stuff that they don't need then craigslist can be a great tool to use to try to get some bitcoin and deal locally

For real? I know that you are smooth trader. I've lurked and learned. Seriously though; you got a buyer on craigslist for 100BTC? Recently? Someone handed you $60someoddthousand for 100BTC off craigslist? I follow most of what you post and would like to know more about this.

I would say that this kind of post (on Craigslist) should be approached with extreme caution. You should really never deal in that large of amounts with a stranger.
