p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Anyone interested in selling/buying with bitcoin or ethereum?


Cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ethereum are gaining traction, and I was curious if anyone here has any interest in transacting with them. More specifically, I wonder if word has spread outside those communities to places like this yet.

For those of you who have no idea how cryptocurrencies work, I won't get into that, but here are a couple interesting properties:

-No middleman.
-No fees of significance.
-No charge-back possible.
-Works like digital cash you can instantly send anywhere.
-Ethereum will (does?) permit automated escrow and cheap arbitration services.

Concerns:
-Very easy to mishandle and lose now because the software is very rough around the edges.
-Once it's gone, it's gone. There is no third-party to call.
-Smart contract services like escrow and arbitration are all in alpha and untested.

Personally, Iím not interested ó yet. For those members who I trust, I am fine using fee-free methods currently available like online bank transfers or even mailing a physical check. However, for the other 95% of sellers who I might potentially deal with here, I feel more comfortable using an established service with buyer protections available, despite the added cost.

Thatís just my disposition, and I understand why others could have different preferences.
