Bitcoin-OTC - BitcoinWiki

The place for everything bitcoin!

Bitcoin is the currency of the Internet: a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no one in charge of bitcoin and it is made up of willing participants. Bitcoin gives you the option to be your own bank.

Cult of Turtle - 38 lessons for safe Bitcoin trading from #bitcoin-otc IRC

intro

#bitcoin-otc is a trading channel on the Freenode IRC server that has existed since 2011 and is still around today. It's been a well known hub among Bitcoin traders, buyers and sellers and the chatroom has helped facilitate tens of thousands of trades across its lifespan.
Across its lengthy existence, many important lessons in safe trading have been learned by its members. One of its members has compiled a great deal of wealth into a document known as "Cult of Turtle", which contains 38 of the most valuable tips you could keep in mind when trading.
The list has been around for years now, and has been proven time and time again to be extremely accurate. (and tounge-in-cheek partly)
I've left all of the tips and original phrasing to preserve the original feeling of the guide - but for Reddit's benefit, I've highlighted the most relevant ones that are also extremely applicable when trading on Reddit or elsewhere. (and omitted several less relevant ones)
Hopefully this wealth of knowledge will help improve your resiliency to scams and scammers. :)

Cult of Turtle - 38 lessons for safe Bitcoin trading from #bitcoin-otc IRC

2. Never trade with someone who doesn’t have a long and good AND RECENT trade history (check ;;gettrust, ;;events).
5. Never lend bitcoins. you will probably never see them again. As Coolio- used to say “Loans are a gift”.
8. Don’t talk about your money, worth, or wealth
9. Don’t leave large sums in shared or online wallets (or other online games or services)
11. If someone is scammer tagged, don’t give them the benefit of the doubt. it might feel weird to consider someone guilty until proven innocent, but it will save your coins.
12. High yield investment programs (HYIP) or loans are pretty much always scams. think about it. if it sounds too good to be true…
13. Never let someone control your computer (teamviewer scams). Don’t install anything suspicious on your computer (trojans, viruses). Ideally have a clean dedicated computer for your transactions. Wipe that computer regularly.
14. There are no tricks to avoid chargebacks on paypal, credit cards, moneypak, dwolla, banks, etc. some services might be harder to chargeback, but nothing is immune.
15. People with good reps can turn bad or get in a bad spot. having a good rep does not mean they will never scam.
16. Break up large transactions into smaller ones, preferably with multiple people
18. Don’t trust someone who can’t speak proper English or your language of choice. this may sound classist, but your money is on the line; trade with professionals or reputable people
22. Don’t trust fast talkers, sweet talkers, smooth talkers. don’t be swayed by emotion or inability to think. a good deal is rarely time sensitive.
23. If someone gets agitated when you ask questions, they were probably trying to scam you
25. Many people offer escrow. use it. BUT ONLY IF YOU TRUST THE PERSON OFFERING ESCROW.
27. Don’t trust gamblers, addicts, or people who are constantly broke
30. Someone buying just to build ratings is suspicious. this goes for the OTC, btcjam, or anywhere else. beware.
31. Don’t use paypal. come on. people tell you this all the time. and for a reason. it’s easy to get scammed by people using paypal. and it’s easy for paypal to freeze your assets and hold your money for 180 days. [same applies for ebay]
32. You will eventually hear someone say “come on, it’s not like I’m going to scam someone for just $___”. yes. someone would scam for that amount. don’t fall for it
34. People with non-random X ending their name are highly likely to be a scammer have you ever noticed that everyone with names ending in a random x is highly likely to be a scammer? freefox <– non-random thetruthx <— random also, framing x’s are not so random xFBASTAGEx <– not so random
35. Unsolicited messages/spam/requests to trade are almost always scams.
36. Trust your gut. if someone gives you a bad vibe, there’s probably a reason. be safe rather than sorry
38. Nobody listens to turtle
You can find the full source on one of the mirrors: http://pi.littlebird-design.com/bitcoin/cult-of-turtle/ (or http://www.cultofturtle.com but seems like that ones hosting expired)
Which tips from this list are your favourite, have helped you prevent scams, or are completely new to you? Comment below and share your insight with others. :)
Cheers!

As requested: I trade bitcoins on a regular basis, AMA

in response to: http://www.reddit.com/IAmA/comments/holkw/ama_request_someone_who_trades_in_bitcoins_on_a/
I've been trading bitcoins for a while now, I bought my first 400 BTC back when the prices were around 0.20/USD per BTC.
Didn't know this subject was so interesting, but anyway, AMA.
Edit: I have to go attend a lecture in about 30 mins but I'll be back on later this afternoon! I had no idea there was such an interest in bitcoins! Anyway, if you have burning questions that need to be answered while I'm gone, you can always hit up #bitcoin-otc or #bitcoin on freenode IRC. See you guys in a few hours!
edit #2: I'm back... trying to get caught up... seems that a lot of people don't know what bitcoin is, so I'll add this link that will hopefully clear things up: http://www.weusecoins.com/
edit #3: Verification... ok, so someone wanted verification... I have clearsigned the post asking for verification using my GPG key here: http://pastebin.com/nxNRmegA
I used the gpg key I use for bitcoin-otc: http://bitcoin-otc.com/viewgpg.php You'll notice I"m user 23... they swapped to a new gpg system back in march... If you look at my rating, you'll see my first was back in december of 2010... before the new ratings came along and bitcoin exploded, my gpg key was registered with the OLD system... which was just listed in the wiki: http://wiki.bitcoin-otc.com/wiki/User_GPG_keys
Anyway, my nickname (nick2day) is also the same nickname I use for btc stuff... so it should be fairly easy to verify everything with the information I've given...
Does that work?

HOW CAN I BUY MONERO THE EASY, FAST OR CHEAP WAY?

Monero is making my head spin. Bitcoin was easy to get into, I just went on #bitcoin-otc on freenode and bought my first 100 btc from some random guy through SEPA/bank transfer!
Can someone shed some light on how to acquire MONERO? I've heard about something called Shapeshift but isn't there another way? And it feels weird to buy BTC to exchange for MONERO..
submitted by HIGHEX to xmrtrader [link] [comments]

After four months, I have some observations and lingering questions about bitcoins

I decided to put some money into bitcoins back in December (great price!) and since then have been buying small batches. I have a few observations about what I've learned:
There's no right time to buy
Bitcoin's price has been fluctuating crazily since I first bought in, and it probably wont stop for awhile. If you're thinking of buying in for the first time but want to wait, I'd suggest just go ahead and buy in now. There wont be a magic moment to buy in (unless you keep a sharp eye out for a quick drop) and the price will keep changing. At this rate, it will probably only go up, so you might as well get off the fence and make a decision. I wish I did back in November!
Buying bitcoins is annoying
People write all the time about how easy it is to buy bitcoins. I felt comfortable investing in bitcoins because of all those kinds of statements. But I'll go ahead and say it's misleading to say buying bitcoins is easy. Rather, it's easy to buy some kinds of bitcoins- and usually at a higher price. Here are the ways I know for buying bitcoins (note, I'm in the US):
Bitcoin transfers are not instantaneous
This was something that really caught me off guard at first. Here is this new type of money that is totally digital, so it should very fast to move around. And nearly everyone claims that it is. In my experience, however, that's not true at all. I've had simple transfers of btc that linger for hours. I have no idea where they go or why certain transfers take so long, but they just do. Eventually, everything shows up, but it's very disconcerting not knowing where your digital currency is in cyberspace. Services like coinbase highlight even more the non-instantaneous nature of bitcoins. If you stick to a major exchange like mtgox, you can expect much faster transfers, but don't panic if something takes longer than a few seconds, minutes, hours etc.
Real-time bitcoin data is not always available
This is important and has a significant impact on trading. There are several sites that track btc prices in close to real-time, but often there are significant lags. This is mainly due to mtgox. The real bitcoin trading currently occurs at mtgox and the market rate is pegged to mtgox. So any lapse in data or service that occurs at mtgox ripples through the other services relying on mtgox market rates. Why does that matter? If the price of btc starts dropping by a few dollars every few minutes, and then suddenly there is no longer real-time trading data, lots of people panic and start selling. The price drops even more. It's an artificial bubble popping of sorts. While btc is decentralized, unfortunately market rates/data is still pretty centralized. And that means that information can go offline...
There's a lot about bitcoins that may go unknown
I find, for most people, bitcoins are understandable up until a certain point. When me and my buddies discuss bitcoins, inevitably we get to the question: but what are bitcoins? While we all know they're rooted in mathematical equations in "blocks," none of us understands what that means. Maybe that doesn't matter, but for some people, it will be a hard sell if you want inspire confidence in this new currency. Here's some lingering questions I still have about bitcoins, even after four months of intensive use and familiarity:
Anyways, those are just some thoughts I've had recently and felt like sharing. Here's a tldr:
TL;DR: With bitcoins, (1) first time investor? there's no right time to buy, just jump in; (2) buying bitcoins can be very annoying and overly-costly; (3) bitcoin transfers are not always instantaneous; (4) bitcoin market data is mostly centralized and not always available; (5) there are bitcoin complexities and unknowns outside the grasp of most laypeople.
edit: thanks for the informative and helpful responses!

Community Organisation

Hey all,
I saw the posts that you all have been posting about. I'll answer some questions to clear the air first.
Q. Where has Gritt been?
A. Admittedly, not around enough. Been quite busy with a marriage a year ago which led to a break in the digital currency field. Further more, we just had our first baby last Friday. Also, some of you may be aware that I have been helping out on the Clubcoin project with sinetek for a group associated with the Bitclub Network.
Q. What's in Blackcoin's future?
A. The community. It has, and always have driven Blackcoin. Now, I have taken a step back on many things in regard but I do see a lack of community leadership to glue everyone and everything together. I do plan on making the effort back into this now that I can worry less about everything that I have been worried about. I get it, I have said that many times in the last year but life kept throwing balls at me that made it difficult to focus.
Moving Foward
First, join the fresh new Slack: https://slack-blackcoin.herokuapp.com
Or, the IRC @ Freenode; #blackcoin
EDIT: Apparently people are claiming that I am trying to split the community via a new group? What? Ehm, no that wasn't my intention. I just firmly believe that Slack is a better means of communication. Was planning on putting together a bot to bridge the two.
Of course, for Blackcoin to continue there needs to be a form of rewards program and community drive, so to speak, to get money flowing into projects again as a form of incentive. Everyone involved needs to make a commitment and in my eyes, they need to see more rewards back into their pocket. Not just charity. We all have thrown money into projects thinking that it will return the profit in the form of the price going up. Many times, this wasn't the case as history has shown. It ended up with people frustrated and leaving.
I have been speaking to Sujoy on quite a few ideas on how people can earn money on their investment within Blackcoin of which will not only help development, but it will also bring a ROI to your pocket. At first, this will start to drive development, attract people to Blackcoin, which will further increase the price.
So, how can this be done? Through a variety of investments in things outside of Blackcoin that are handled by people experienced in those fields. Sujoy for instance, is a pro at Forex trading in my eyes. He would be able to take money in BLK and translate it into USD for Forex trading purposes and give out a ROI monthly and take a percentage out to pay to Blackcoin development. I averaged how much he is able to earn per month across all of his accounts going back 8 years and it is a staggering 7.4% per month. The banks can't beat that. He is also dedicated completely to it. Sujoy is one person, I'm sure there are others here that have skills in trading Altcoins and will be willing to start pots.
Now, of course the question remains is, transparency and trust. You would want this to be completely trust-less. Of course, a DAO would make the most sense. However, I do believe that we may be able to make a platform that overcomes this with a form of reputation system. Kind of old-school BTC-OTC is a possible solution as we build for a better solution. With that, of course there is dzimbeck's BlackHalo which can bridge the gap of trust between people. I encourage people to use this.
Think back to starting a business. You won't have all the flashy gear and high-end equipment. You would likely start out with your own two hands and not much automation. As you grow, you start to automate to make things more easier. We as a community need to start with what we can do with our hands as individuals and start think, how can I make Blackcoin better? It can be anything that you are skilled at.
We need to build Blackcoin centric organisations and companies. Big or small. They all need capital and we need to show the world that we are the kings of PoS. You vote with your money, not your computational power.
A while ago, there was the idea to bridge Peer Shares into Blackcoin aka BLKShares. This should be done. So for the future in terms of economy off the top of my mind are;
  • Sujoy's Hedge fund with Forex
  • Gritt's Blackcoin gold & silver fund (local and international). I can convert Blackcoin into gold / silver and back into Blackcoin. There will be proof of reserves.
  • Gritt's Cambodian local trading reserves (I'm doing about $10,000 in volume right now monthly on my own. I have ideas to expand it and if anyone wants to get involved, I can happily give them a ROI on their investment and keep it completely transparent.)
  • Gritt's micro financing. I have been dabbling into micro financing on my own to give people money that they need and then earning a monthly interest on it. So far, 100% successful.
  • Gritt's pay bills with digital currencies in Cambodia. I'm able to take in BTC or any other digital currency, charge a small commission and pay people's bills.
  • Altcoin / Bitcoin mining, again. This might not be a bad idea to pursue again.
Of course, mine are local (except the gold fund) and I can have been earn ROI and fund Blackcoin development with all those above.
Development and Economy have to work hand in hand for Blackcoin. Rat4 does some amazing stuff and there are some amazing projects out there but there are nobody using them. We have the tools, we need the economy to move.
So, going forward, I will get together what ever I need to get together for the Blackcoin community.
  • Slack channel
  • Chinese involvement
  • Update timeline
  • Twitter & Facebook activity
  • Proper FAQs and support page
  • Some form of claimed addresses page with people's ID's. A sort of Blackcoin directory if people want to participate.
Anything really. There are plenty of things that the greater community has worked on. The idea is to bring other altcoins into the Blackcoin economy. As in, people can pay with whatever coin they want to, and they'll get Blackcoin benefits paid out in Blackcoin. Once we have enough things for people to make legit money on, the more we'll attract people.
I honestly don't know where and when to end this. I could keep going but I hope I painted the picture.
~ Gritt

[UK] Selling loads of assorted parts, 5870s, 6990, processors, motherboards, ram, psus, fpga, tablets, ...

Hi all, I am obviously new here, but have good reputation elsewhere I am quite happy to jump through any hoops that give you additional peace of mind :)
If you live near Margate, UK you are welcome to pick up in person or I will ship (even internationally) as long as you cover the shipping costs.
Got lots of stuff I don't want, the prices I'm listing are just rough guidelines, If you can find any of my stuff cheaper elsewhere I will certainly lower my price. I pretty much did a rough price guestimate using eBay listings. Things with (boxed) mean that I have the original box for them. Some stuff I havn't priced up, just make sensible offers :)
I will accept pretty much any payment method if possible, Paypal, Bitcoin, BACS Transfer, etc. Just ask! :)
Without further ado, things:
£350 - Saphire AMD 6990
£70 - 7 x XFX ATI HD 5870 1GB (boxed) 1
£40 - 4 x Corsair CX600 Builder series 600W power supplies (boxed) 1
£20 - 6 x AMD Sempron 140 2.7ghz processors (Maybe dual core unlockable) (boxed) 1
£5 - 3 x Kingston ValueRAM 2GB DDR3 1066Mhz memory (boxed) 1
£30 - 6 x Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 motherboards (boxed) 1
£140 - 1 x Iiyama E2607WSV 1920x1200 26" Monitors 2
£50 - Antec CP-850 850W power supply (requires CPX form factor case)3
£50 - Altera DE0 (Cyclone 3) FPGA (Brand new unused but open box)4
£35 - O2 Joggler hackable tablet thingy, powered by an Intel atom and most Linux distros have been ported. (boxed)5
NZXT Sentry LXE Touch screen fan controller 6
Asus P5VD1-X motherboard 7
Pentium 4 3ghz (I think, this hasn't seen the light of day in a while :p) 7
2 x 1GB DDR 400Mhz Adata memory 7
If you are curious about where all this stuff has been / come from, here's some history on everything :)
1) All of this stuff was purchased for bitcoin mining back in May 2011. It's all been faithfully mining in my spare bedroom since then, has turned a nice little profit, and is now a bit too slow to compete with all the other miners, so it's gotta go! photo 1 photo 2
2) These used to be the monitors I used on my main desktop. I decided to upgrade to 2560x1440 monitors, so these are now sitting in the spare bedroom not doing much. They were always great monitors though! photo
3) Used to be the power supply in my main PC, however when I upgraded to a new motherboard I could no longer fit my SLi setup in since the PSU was right up against the bottom of the board and I needed to utilise the bottom slot. Remember that this is the new CPX form factor by Antec, so you'll either need an Antec case or a hacksaw to get it to fit ;)
4) Bought this for bitcoin experimentation but never ended up using it. It got took out of the box and I looked at it, that was about it. Never been used and in the original box with all the things.
5) These are great fun especially for the price, I bought it and used it as a bedside clock for a while (Yay Ubuntu+Conky). I use my Nexus 7 to do this job now though, so this has been relegated to the cupboard. Has a green stuck pixel right on the edge of the screen. You can find lots of info about hacking them here
6) Used to use this as my fan controller but switched to a couple of BitFenix recons because I fan control in software. Looks really cool though. Shame I can't have this and software control really! :P
7) Used to be my old gaming PC, got relegated to being the home theatre PC and then got relegated to the cupboard :P, Hasn't been used in a while but I assume it all still works, will test it before I send it off.
That's all, again feel free to ask me any questions. or negotiate on the prices (especially if your ordering more than one thing). I'm on IRC (Freenode) should you want to IM me. :)

Colored coin client preview #1 (based on Bitcoin Armory)

I think it's already good enough for people to play with it. (Although certainly it's not ready for anything serious.)
For people who are not familiar with concept, colored coins is a technology which allows people to represent arbitrary tokens (e.g. issue private currencies, stocks, bonds, etc.) using small quantities of bitcoins. It is interesting because it would allow us to create decentralized and secure markets. (As decentralized and secure as Bitcoin itself, at least in theory.) See here.
Notes about current release:
Windows binaries: http://killerstorm.xen.prgmr.com/alex/ArmoryX-0.2.5.zip
There are no Linux binaries, but it's really easy to build it on Ubuntu or Debian:
(Note: if you're already using Armory, it is a good idea to hide you ~/.armory so it won't be seen by this experimental Armory mod. Or, perhaps, just don't run this experimental mod.)
Before you run it, make sure that bitcoind or Bitcoin-Qt is running and fully sync'ed. Armory takes up to 10 minutes to start (this version is slower because it additionally scans for colored transactions) and requires ~ 1 GB of RAM.
At start it will offer to create a wallet, do not enable encryption, otherwise issuing colored coins won't work.
Send some bitcoins to this new wallet, 0.02 BTC is probably enough to issue some colored coins and to pay for tx fees.
There is a drop down to choose color. Balance is displayed for a currently chosen color (i.e. if you chose TESTcc it will show how many TESTcc units this wallet owns), and when you send coins you send coins of that color.
Initially 'uncolored' is selected, it means normal BTC. This drop down also has TESTcc ("test colored coins") and "All colors" (this mode is just for debugging, you cannot send coins in this mode).
Here's what you can do now:
  1. Ask somebody to send you TESTcc. (We want to make it automatic, Satoshi Dice style, but unfortunately that code isn't quite ready.)
  2. Find and install other color definitions.
  3. Issue your own colored coins and send them to somebody who wants them. (LOL.)
Let's start from option #3. There is 'Hallucinate' menu. (It is called 'hallucinate' because colors do not exist on blockchain level, it is a client-side convention.) Choose 'Issue colored coins'. Likely all you need to change is name, but you can tweak satoshi-per-unit and number of units if you want.
When you click Issue it will create a new transaction (using your uncolored BTC) and will create a color definition. Optionally it will also upload your color definition to color definition registry. (This registry runs on my server, it might be down.)
You should note ColorID, this is how other people can refer to these coins (name is ambiguous).
You can now choose this new color in drop down and it will show your balance. (E.g. 1000 units.)
Now you'll perhaps want to send these coins to somebody. That person would need to install your color definition first. If you send colored coins without warning they might be lost, i.e. mixed with uncolored ones. For same reason it makes no sense to send them to wallet which isn't color aware.
For example, you can post on some forum:
I've issued LOLwut coins (ColorID: 36738fe78a443656535503efb585fee140a37d54), each unit represents a bond with face value of 0.1 BTC payable by me, Trololo, via buy back. I promise to buy back all bonds in a month.
Now people who are interested in this LOLwut coin issue will copy ColorID, paste it into Hallucinate > Download color definition dialog, and if this color definition is published it will be downloaded and installed. Armory restart is required to complete installation.
After installation that person will be able to see these LOLwut coins.
Note that if you do not trust my registration server, you can publish color definition yourself: go to ~/.armory/colordefs, find 36738fe78a443656535503efb585fee140a37d54.colordef and upload it to your web server. Then you can give people URL like http://example.com/36738fe78a443656535503efb585fee140a37d54.colordef and they can download it by URL.
Or they can just obtain this file by any means and copy it to ~/.armory/colordefs directory. It is decentralized, nobody can prevent you from issuing colored coins.
I think that's all. There is also Hallucinate > Manage color definitions dialog, but I hope it's easy to figure out how it works.
We are working on improved version, particularly on p2p exchange feature.
I've set up an IRC channel for people to talk about trying out colored coins: #colored-coins-otc on Freenode.

/r/oBitcoin FAQ - Novatos por favor leiam

Bem vindo ao /oBitcoin FAQ fixada

O texto que se encontra aqui foi desenvolvido por Mtzrkov e outros em Github.com/btcbrdev/oBitcoin e está em domínio público para ser usado livremente por qualquer um.

O que é bitcoin?

Bitcoin (BTC ou XBT) é o primeiro e mais importante dinheiro eletrônico sem autoridade central, baseado numa tecnologia open-source inédita chamada Blockchain, que foi desenvolvida por Satoshi Nakamoto em janeiro de 2009. Essa tecnologia permite a criação de um "banco de dados" confiável P2P (ponto-a-ponto), o que abre caminho para muitos tipos de inovação, sendo uma delas o próprio bitcoin e outras como contratos descentralizados, por exemplo.
Nota: normalmente emprega-se "Bitcoin" em maiúsculo para se referir ao protocolo (baseado na tecnologia Blockchain) e em minúsculo "bitcoin" para se referir a uma unidade da moeda.
O Bitcoin, além de um bem digital, pode ser considerado também um sistema de pagamento, totalmente independente de qualquer sistema já existente, como cartões de crédito, Paypal, bancos e outros. Sua capacidade atual estimada é de 7 transações por segundo, mas essa capacidade pode ser aumentada com o passar do tempo se houver necessidade. Por ser puramente digital e distribuído, o Bitcoin funciona 24/7 e tem alcance mundial, além de ter locais especializados de troca pela moeda local (chamados exchange) nas principais cidades do mundo.
A segurança da rede do Bitcoin, ou seja, o que garante que não existirá um chamado "gasto duplo" do mesmo dinheiro, é o consenso da rede P2P feito pela validação das transações por parte dos mineradores. Para que um minerador consiga incluir um bloco válido na rede, ele precisa utilizar um grande poder computacional. O processo de mineração consiste na realização de cálculos matemáticos para a seleção de quais transações válidas serão incluídas no próximo novo bloco do Blockchain, excluindo aquelas que tiveram uma tentativa de "gasto duplo" naquele período. Cada nó da rede, além dos mineradores, também é capaz de verificar a validade das transações incluídas no bloco. É nesse processo também que aparecem os "bitcoins ainda não descobertos". A distribuição dos bitcoins é feita de forma previsível, tendo uma queda de recompensa pela metade de 4 em 4 anos. Serão encontrados no máximo 21 milhões de unidades da moeda.

Quanto vale um bitcoin?

O preço de mercado de um bitcoin é determinado através da lei da oferta e da procura, portanto estando sujeito a variações de preço por causa de acontecimentos políticos e econômicos (como desvalorização e inflação de moedas estatais, conflitos, maior demanda por Bitcoin etc).
Assim como nas moedas estatais, o preço do bitcoin varia e pode ser diferente dependendo do lugar em que for negociado.
Se você for comprar dólares no Brasil, você terá que procurar uma casa de câmbio que poderá ter a cotação de R$ 3,00 por dólar, por exemplo. Caso vá a outra casa de câmbio, você poderá notar que o preço poderá ser ligeiramente diferente, além das taxas também variarem. Com o Bitcoin não é diferente. Essa variação entre as exchanges (nome comumente usado para se refererir aos locais de compra e venda de bitcoin) são equilibradas pelo mercado através de operações de arbitragem (comprar num lugar mais barato e vender num mais caro).
Para se ter uma ideia do preço médio do bitcoin, você pode dar uma olhada em sites como os que seguem:
Para um gráfico do preço ao longo do tempo, acesse:

Volatilidade

Por ser uma moeda ainda muito recente (inventada em jan/2009) e ainda não muito utilizada, seu preço de mercado ainda é muito volátil. Isso faz do bitcoin um investimento de risco atualmente. O preço tende a ficar mais estável ao longo do tempo, quando o mercado puder definir com mais exatidão seu "preço real". As oscilações também tendem a diminuir conforme o seu market cap (quantidade de moedas x preço) aumentar. Hoje (2015) o market cap do bitcoin é de US$ 3 bi, o que pode ser considerado pouco se comparado ao valor de algumas empresas como a Dell (US$ 24 bi) ou ainda de outras commodities como o ouro (US$ 2.600 bi).

Como obter bitcoins?

O bitcoin é um bem digital e assim como outros bens, pode ser adquirido de diversas formas:

1. Negociação direta (P2P / pessoa a pessoa)

Uma das maneiras mais baratas de se negociar bitcoins, porque não tem taxas, é comprando diretamente de outras pessoas que já possuem a moeda. As duas partes chegam a um acordo de preço e a troca é feita. Geralmente quem tem menos reputação entrega o bitcoin ou a moeda local primeiro.
Por ser uma maneira relativamente arriscada, pois não há um mediador para casos de descumprimento de uma das partes, a reputação de alguém deve ser muito considerada. Exemplo: prefira negociar com alguém do seu círculo de amizades (rede de confiança), alguém que você confie muito como familiares e amigos, ou por uma indicação (amigo de amigo). Se a outra parte tem uma reputação duvidosa, prefira negociar aos poucos (divida os valores em várias partes menores e vá trocando aos poucos).
Algumas ferramentas auxiliam nesse processo de reputação e rede de confiança, sendo elas:

2. Negociação indireta (com intermediário)

Outra forma de se negociar bitcoins (e essa provavelmente é a maneira mais conveniente, embora não seja a mais barata) é utilizando um intermediário que viabilize a compra e venda de bitcoins entre pessoas interessadas. Esses intermediários são as "corretoras" ou "bolsas" de bitcoins (mais conhecidas por exchanges).
Essas corretoras fornecem um serviço de intermediação entre compradores e vendedores de bitcoin, cobrando uma taxa para tal. Por causa disso o bitcoin nas corretoras tem um preço final um pouco mais alto do que se fosse comprar de outras maneiras, mas devido ao altíssimo volume, uma operação pode ser realizada instantaneamente.
Além de usar exchanges, você também pode encontrar um intermediário na relação P2P, tornando-a mais segura. Exemplo: um amigo em comum, que pode levar uma comissão previamente combinada para intermediar as duas partes.
Você pode conferir uma lista de corretoras no ExchangeWar. Algumas das principais corretoras brasileiras são:

Onde gastar bitcoins?

Hoje é virtualmente possível gastar os bitcoins em qualquer lugar, usando algum intermediário para trocá-los imediatamente sob demanda por alguma moeda local, como numa exchange ou com serviços como Neteller, Xapo ou Gyft.
Alguns locais porém já aceitam a moeda digital diretamente, como é o caso da Microsoft, Dell e Overstock, além de inúmeras outras ao redor do mundo.
Confira uma lista com mais de 100 mil lugares que já aceitam diretamente o bitcoin em SpendBitcoins ou no CoinMap.
Segue algumas listas de locais que aceitam bitcoin no Brasil:

Como minerar bitcoins?

Para minerar bitcoins você precisa executar um software em um computador especializado (ASIC) que possa realizar uma grande quantidade de operações matemáticas demandada pelo sistema de consenso P2P do bitcoin.
Logo após a criação do Bitcoin em 2009, era possível e rentável minerar bitcoins utilizando o processamento de computadores pessoais (através de simples processadores e placas de vídeo), mas com o tempo essa atividade deixou de ser rentável e tornou-se praticamente impossível para tais máquinas. Isso aconteceu pois o interesse no Bitcoin aumentou muito, trazendo assim mais pessoas para a mineração e impulsionando uma corrida por maior quantidade de processamento. Com o avanço da tecnologia e o aumento do interesse por Bitcoin, mais poder de processamento foi adicionado à rede Bitcoin e isso resultou em um aumento da dificuldade para se encontrar novos Blocos.
Essa é uma característica do protocolo Bitcoin: quanto maior o poder de processamento da rede, maior a dificuldade para se minerar bitcoins - ou seja, maior a dificuldade para se descobrir novos Blocos. Um bloco é um arquivo que possui uma identificação (data, hora e informações genéricas) e um registro das transações (movimentação de bitcoins entre endereços) mais recentes. Resumidamente, os mineradores são uma forma de manter a rede Bitcoin segura e operante, algo que demanda muito poder de processamento (o que torna inviável o uso computadores de propósito geral para tal fim) e que, como retribuição por essa tarefa importante, gera uma recompensa em bitcoins pelo trabalho.
Todas as transações, ou seja, as movimentações em bitcoins realizadas entre endereços (carteiras), são anônimas pois se caracterizam como uma transferência de fundos de um endereço Bitcoin para outro, que, embora tenham relação indireta com pessoas reais, não possuem uma relação direta. Ou seja, não é possível dizer com absoluta certeza que determinada pessoa é detentora de um endereço a menos que ela diga isso em algum lugar - o que torna o Bitcoin algo pseudônimo, não anônimo (você é anônimo apenas se quiser e tiver conhecimentos para tal). Todas as transações da história da rede Bitcoin são públicas e podem ser conferidas em sites como o Blockchain Info.
Então...é impossível minerar hoje em dia num PC comum ou notebook? Sim, mas não é lucrativo. Para isso existem os ASICs (Circuitos Integrados de Aplicação Específica, em inglês Application Specific Integrated Circuits), hardwares específicos para mineração. Há uma lista na Bitcoin Wiki, em inglês, onde estão listados todos os ASICs disponíveis no mercado e também placas gráficas e processadores. É importante notar que embora seja possível minerar bitcoins, não é algo recomendado aos brasileiros, uma vez que o equipamento é caro, importado e possui taxas de importação - além da energia elétrica brasileira, que inviabiliza totalmente o processo.

Is there a safety risk if...

I want to use a single trezor address to accept bitcoin for my website and for use in the btc-otc freenode channel. Is there any security risk other than everyone will known who owns the address? My other idea is use something like bitpay or coinbase but I dont like dealing with coinbase and I havent tried bitpay to much.

[Hiring] I'm looking for Go (golang) assistance/tutor for 1 hour $20~ (related: git for win, data import, CSV export, eclipse)

Hi J4B,
I'm looking for assistance learning Go for a little project. I don't want to just hire someone to do it for me, I'd like to actually understand Go a little better. I have some java experience (just finished Prog I in college) and have been playing around with Go a bit but could use a hand. Normally I'd just go on Freenode for help but I'd prefer some accelerated one-on-one help. I'm open to using desktop sharing/collaborative software if you have a preferred platform but am also fine with talking via microphone or even IRC.
The task I'd like to be able to do is importing an html plaintext response that (appears to be) JSON formatted, then writing it to a .csv file with regular appending to it via Go's ticker func (or similar).... I can get it to print to my Git console but I'm a little mixed up on dealing with the CSV stuff. Since this task might not take much time, I'd like to use the remainder of the hour to ask questions or let you take over if you have stuff you think would be important to teach.
I'm offering $20 for this but willing to negotiate a little. I'm looking for most any day during this week (the 14th to 20th) I can make most times (EST) in the afternoon/evening work since school doesn't start for another week. I'm fine with escrow but I am on #bitcoin-otc if that helps show my reputation. Reply below, PM me, or send me a message on IRC via freenode.net to my nick: tunafizz
Thanks!
