Hello i am new around here. I've got some bitcoins, primarily to learn how stuff work. The question is what to do with a few bitcoins. I am not interested in buying something, i mean goods. Should i just watch closely the exchange rates, and make micro-exchanges with other people to gain some profit? Should i pick some shares from promising mining operations on glbse.com? Should i invest my few bitcoins in a Savings and Trust - like business ? (although having few bitcoins doesnt allow me to join the famous BST pirateat40's risky business)

Please remember that day-trading is negative-sum; that is, excluding the exchange, on average people lose.

Dividing them out on GLBSE shares would do the trick. Try throwing the bulk of it in a reputable mining operation for safe returns, and probably invest a small part in BST just for the lulz.  Wink

Just don't lost it in those gambilng sites.
I've spent several hours testing the real probability
and those places cheat like crazy!

Micro exchanges sounds fun.



This was a 'spam' post to get my count up so I can post my one and only single contribution to this site in a thread for BFL orders.

I think I have 5 already, so this is just fluff.

Put them in deep savings and forget about them for 5 years. You will either be pleasantly surprised or wonder wtf Bitcoins are.

Definitely a good thing to do.

Mining is still the most reliable BTC investment.

Take a look at some of the great depositing opportunities from 1% to 6.9% weekly.

As has been suggested, I'd go investing on the GLBSE...but be careful!  Wink

What's "deep savings"?

He means save them for a couple of years as they should be more valuable then due to deflation

and "PPT"?

PPT means Pirate Pass Thru. A user on the forum "pirateat40" has a savings scheme which pays 7% per week interest, however, you need to have a large number of Bitcoins to participate. You can however, join a PPT, which allows you to put money in an account someone has with pirate. BitcoinMax (run by user Payb.tc) pays 6.9%. There are other PPT that are partially insured against a default by pirateat40 as well.

You could donate them to the original "Alpaca Socks for Bitcoin" folks.  (aka me)

I just updated our site to automate the ordering process (instead of requiring emails back and forth).  It's still a bit clunky, but it gets the job done and will allow us to improve our responsiveness to customers.

Instead of advertising my own sites (none of which I have) I'll suggest either putting it in a security or something similar (BitcoinMax pays a straight 6.9% a week which is nice) or if you're feeling more brave, investing in LTC, which seem to be steadily rising in price.

Or you could give them to me since Intersango have had £100 of my money since the27th and no CLEAR idea from them when/if I'll get my cash/BTC Sad
