You don't have to buy coin. You (anyone) can earn bch through tips here on reddit, or twitter thanks to /tipptippr or similar bots.
Anyone can also earn bch right now too on http://yours.org by posting updates that people might find interesting and/or useful. This is an amazing thing, and makes me think a lot of other platforms for earning are coming soon.
You can buy gift-cards using bch on https://cryptonize.it/product/amazon-gift-card/ - if amazn ships to you this means you can buy foods and stuff to live off of (rice/beans/soylent?etc). Disclaimer: I do not work and am not associated with any of these projects. This one it seems they're getting a lot of orders so they're still working out the kinks. (https://cryptonize.it/about/). This seems like a huge business opportunity to try and work around the stranglehold that visa and mastercard have on payments. - edit: I just realized (if they're in stock) you can buy other types of giftcards (instead of or including amzn) and sell them for cash on many card-to-cash websites, and sometimes even local kiosks.
Depending on where you are in the world some places, for example https://www.southxchange.com/ claim you can sell bch for fiat (if you really have to). YMMV and I have not done this. Remember, some banks hate crypto since it challenges them. If you're thinking of doing bank transfers to fiat from exchanges be careful - the bank may shut down your account! They may also cut-off links between exchanges at any time.
Some places like BitPay offer crypto 'debit cards' where you can fill up with btc (not yet bch?) and then spend it like you're used to anywhere visa is accepted, but don't expect these to be around forever because they rely on visa partnerships, so don't expect them to always keep fees low either.
If you don't like using Coinbase or other privacy-invasive services your options for converting bch to fiat are increasingly slim. You can try any number of exchanges that offer bch/fiat but keep in mind that security, sharing bank account info and ID info can be a big risk and sometimes the fees are huge, alternatives might include virtual exchanges such as http://virwox.com but the process goes something like BCH -> litecoin LTC -> to linden (exchange may not be cheap) -> to fiat to then withdraw fiat to skrill or paypal - fees might be steep there too and paypal hasn't been too friendly with this idea. But if you're thinking of going this route you can use Shapeshift to convert bch to ltc through coinomi.
The more places that offer ways to spend bch, the more local need for putting it back into fiat is not required. However, it is a catch-22 to expect merchants to be able to buy stock from others who are not using crypto yet and start accepting bch. Most people don't understand blockchain and with it crypto so if you're planning on asking your local shopkeeper to accept bitcoin you better have a way to make it clear to them the many advantages but also how they can use their own bch to buy produce/materials to keep the business running. (Maybe via #4). This (in my opinion) is the greatest barrier to wider bch adoption.
Hi guys, here is my problem: After seeing the Athene video , I tried to get myself into cryptos. I didnt know shit at first , it seemed complicated but i managed to learn the basics in a day. Decided to finally buy some Prps for myself but i hit a couple of brickwalls: I know that Athene is thinking about allowing investors into this crypto soon , and i feel like i will miss this one-time opportunity if i dont buy it soon. Time is running against me and i lack solutions for now. My problem is first that i dont possess a credit card. Ive tried to get one but they refused me because i dont currently have a job since i work in the construction sector (we dont work in winter). So i cant get my hand on a credit card for now. So i cant buy anything... Then i tried to go for a site that accept Interac-online but i learned that it require a week to do a single transfer. Its too long. Plus , every site i tried required a Verification that takes 3-5 days. Now thats almost 2 week.. its too long. And most of those verification also require a Credit card or other document that i dont possesses (Driver licence (lost it) , passport (not up to date) etc). Im also canadian and some sites dont allow Canadian dollars through interac-online. So i Bought a bunch of prepaid visa cards for Coinbase thinking it would work.. but it didnt. In short : -No time -No credit card -Bunch of prepaid card in hands -Canadian -Lacking documents
I know Paypal accept Prepaid cards but then how do i get Ethereum ? Paypal-Virwox(bitcoin)-shapeshift-metamask?? and how many time will it takes? Would it be fast enough before the real prps launch? Is there another way? Is there a site that allows Canadian prepaid card? A site that doesnt require a 5 days verification? Something i dont know? Please guys the sharks are coming and im not ready.
Hey guys, I just accidentally found out that it is against Paypal's rules to buy/sell bitcoins. I basically sell bitcoins on Virwox and they give me the money via paypal and then I transfer them into my bank account. Will this get me into trouble? If yes, then fuck Paypal! This is outrageous!
In order to buy Bitcoin, casual investors want to avoid the complicated process of setting up an account with exchanges or going the mining route – two rather detailed and laborious processes. Thankfully PayPal offers a more convenient method to acquire digital currencies.

I'm trying to buy Dogecoin, but i live in Mexico so the usual places people buy Bitcoin so they can then buy Doge need bank verification (only US). So i went to the dogemarket and they want the paypal transfer as a gift (I don't have a problem with that, don't want them to get ban from paypal) But in my country the option to send as a gift does not exist. I hate my country so much right now :( I just wanted to buy 25K of doge... Mexican shibes can't have nothing good these days. Ps. Thanks for reading my rant and sorry for my bad grammar. Edit: Google wallet is racist a told me to go home :( Giving Skrill a try... I'm not giving up, by the end of the day i will buy doge no matter what. Edit 2: Skrill won't verify my debit card Edit 3: Finally i bought some Bitcoin with paypal at virwox.com, there are lots of fees and it will take 48 hours for the transfer of Bitcoins (because i'ts my firts transfer) to my new account on cryptsy.com. Overall i think it was cheaper and more secure than buying at localbitcoins.com (mexico). Thank you all for your advice.
currently use VirWox. 177 dollars turned into 145 dollars because of all the percentage shaving they did. Looking for another option. Any suggestions?
I used to use circle.com and it was perfect. Instant credit card (or Paypal) direct to bitcoin with no charge. They quit dealing in bitcoin, so I was forced to look around. Found a few websites that required a bunch of identity proving, which is constantly denied due to my ID card being cracked. Virwox is instant and easy, but it costs money to put some in your account. Then you transfer it to SSL and that costs money. Then you transfer it to bitcoin and that costs money. Then you move it to your wallet, and that costs money. 177 is what I paid for but by the end of it, I had $145 in bitcoin. Any instant, easy websites like circle.com out there?
So recently I wanted to buy something on internet and that website was using Paymentwall or Bitcoin. I didn't want to give my identity information to Paymentwall so I wanted to use bitcoin section. But there isn't a service selling bitcoin via Paypal. So I found this website called Virwox and bought $16 of Bitcoins via Skrill (cuz it was saying they don't charge fees when I use skrill) but they gave me $14.95 so I don't give a single f* about $1 but the problem is I couldn't buy bitcoins with that money from them because fees etc. wasn't givin' me the bitcoins as much that I need. So I wanted to transfer that money to my Paypal, didn't work cuz they have minimum limit. I tried my bank account, didn't work. So I sent them an e-mail and explained everything. And here is what happened; "Your account has been disabled!" So what am I gonna do now? Any suggestions?
What are the cheapest options to withdraw money from PayPal account without transferring them to local bank? I was thinking Bitcoin because exchanging PayPal into other ewallets adds up to about 20% in fees upon cash withdrawal. VirWox has decent rates (adds up to about 12%), but for some reason they decided that my account is high risk (whatever that means, I'm still waiting on them to get back to me) and refunded my first payment. Exchange rates at localbitcoins.com and paxful are terrible so I won't use them. P.S. I'm not stealing money from somebody else's account. I just need to be able to send my PayPal funds into another jurisdiction where I can transfer them even to a bank account if necessary. Edit: I'm also thinking PayPal E-wallet Bitcoin might be an alright option, but my head is about to explode from various exchange rates and fees that each system has.
Do you think creating a new PayPal account, transfer funds from my current account to this new one, and use it to buy Bitcoin on sites clearly related to Bitcoin, like Localbitcoins and WeSellCrypto, to avoid the problem of being banned from PayPal, would work? Btw, I can't use Virwox.
Just thought I'd share my 2 hour journey on finding lost Litecoins, spoiler alert, they're gone. So I decided I would find my long lost litecoin wallet, so I dug through my Google account history, and found 4 results for Litecoin dating back to 2014, one of them linked to litecoin.info ( Which seems to be down ) so I accessed it through web.archive.org and found the link in question, how to buy litecoins. It suggested buying with PayPal through a website called VirWox, which as soon as I clicked on, I recognized. Like 15 minutes later, I had recovered my VirWox account and as I thought, I bought $5 worth of SLL in Jan 30, 2014 which I would then trade for LTC since apparently buying Litecoin with PayPal was against TOS (Not sure if still is). The guide then said to transfer them to an exchange. After searching for all the exchange names in my E-Mail history, I finally found one about my account registration with Cryptsy, only to find out it's now bankrupt, aaaand I missed out on the lawsuit dates. R.I.P. My fraction of a Litecoin, you'd be worth around a hundred today. P.S. I also found that my first Bitcoin search was "what are bitcoins" on Oct 20, 2012. Oh if only I had bought back then... P.P.S. Obligatory nightmare story about selling 33 Litecoins years later for $280, nice.
Well, not totally. I've been all over the deep and shallow webs alike trying to find a simple way to buy bitcoins. I have set up accounts on VIRWOX (which would've worked if it didn't have a paltry $75 cap for deposits...) and a million other random ass websites but so far as I can tell the only secure way that would work for me is a freaking international bank transfer to mtgox's japanese bank. Something I have never attempted and am really not too eager to try now. Apparently yall don't trust paypal or credit cards (can't say I blame you from a purely economic academia standpoint - but come on). Is there somewhere I can just buy BTCs at market value using my credit card number or do I really have to phone the ambassador to Sweden and trade my daughter's hand in marriage to get on the waiting list to buy these freaking things? Aren't there prepaid cards I can purchase somewhere that aren't $50 more expensive per coin than market value? Why in the name of the holy prophets of God does it have to be this hard to get in on this thing?? Can any of you help?
I've been using VirWox to transfer relatively low amounts of Bitcoin (few hundred dollars worth) to my bank (BTC > SLL > USD > PayPal > Bank) but I'm planning on increasing the amount to the thousands in the future so perhaps a dedicated exchange would be cheaper and faster. I'm wondering if anyone have any personal experience with reputable Canadian Bitcoin exchanges as well as their fees, registration, verification, and bank/PayPal transfer process.
Virwox rejected my account registration and got cocky about it too!
(1) Install the bitcoin wallet to your phone --write down the passphrase they autogenerate for you --send the bitcoin address to yourself (your PC) via email (2) Install Authy to your phone (3) Use a PC (or your phone) to visit VirWox and create an account: (setup 2FA for the account using Authy to generate the 6-digit MFA code) (4) Get the confirmation email from VirWox and relogin, changing your password in the process (5) In VirWox: --transfer $99 USD from Paypal (or Credit Card or Debit Card) to your VirWox account --exchange $99 USD to SSL --exchange SSL to bitcoin --withdraw bitcoin to your phone's wallet (you'll need to copynpaste the bitcoin address from your email from step (1)) --prepare to wait up to 48 hrs for VirWox to complete the transaction (first time users only, after that it's immediate) (6) After 24 hrs, get email from VirWox: VirWox>> Hello, unfortunately we have received high risk indications for this account. We have therefore refunded your payment and closed the account. me>> Thank you! Without a better explanation, I will take my business elsewhere. VirWoxYes, please do take your "business" elsewhere. That was the idea of closing your account. meHah! You're so funny :)
Want to buy Bitcoins but it turns out difficult...
Hey guys, I am a bitcoin newcomer. I want to buy bitcoin but its really fucking annoying. I checked localbitcoin and all that's available is some local sellers charging silly amounts and you have to pay them with bank transfer. It takes up to 2 days and i even have to meet them personally in some cases. Is it really not possible to buy bitcoin in a more simple way? I feel like a drug addict searching for a dealer. There mus come up some ways to get it with credit card or paypal or moneybookers. edit: i read the virwox shit edit2: i am european
So I know a lot of people have been asking about this (and so was I) so I finally found a way to buy Bitcoins with PayPal. The whole idea is to circumvent the direct purchase of BTC with Paypal with buying SLL (Second Life Lindens) and then exchanging them for BTC. You can find the original post on my Facebook notes here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/ofir-beigel/buying-bitcoins-with-paypal-or-with-a-credit-card/10151639487083203 If you want a short rundown of how it's done then here's the deal: IMPORTANT: This process hold within it more transaction fees than usual. This may still be a valid solution since the soaring numbers of BTC compensate for this. It's important for you to be aware of the different transaction fees. Step 1: Go to VirWox. VirWox is an exchange of virtual currency, you can buy there Lindens, Bitcoins, and more... Step 2: Open a free account Click on the "not registered yet" to open up a new account. Step 3: Fill out our personal details Fill out your username and email address. Where it asks for "avatar name" just fill out any name you like it doesn't matter, since you're not going to play Second Life. Continue filling out all of the personal details and click "register". Step 4: Activate your account Once you clicked "register" you will get an email confirmation with an initial password. Open the email and log into VirWox with your initial password. Step 5: IMPORTANT!!! Change your password! After clicking the confirmation link it is advised you change you password as shown below since you will be transferring money through this site. Do not worry about the message saying "Your avatar connection has not been validated yet" - it is irrelevant. Step 6: Fund your account through PayPal Click on deposit on the left side and choose PayPal Express. Fund the account with how many USD you'd like. Note: From now on for each transaction you will make there will be a fee - make sure you are aware of the relevant deposit and withdrawal fees Step 7: Buy SLL with USD Go to Exchange->USD/SLL on the left side. You can also go to any other currency you'd like. Buy SLL (which mean Second Life Lindens) . We will later on exchange these SLL to Bitcoins. Note: If you haven't made a deposit yet you will get the screen shown above requestion you to deposit before you buy SLL. Step 8: Buy BTC with SLL Once you have SLL in your account, go to the BTC/SLL and buy Bitcoins with your SLL. Step 9: Withdraw your Bitcoins Choose "Withdraw" on the left side and send the Bitcoins to your wallet.
I run a small part-time business from my couch where I sell an online game currency for $$USD. I usually have my buyers use paypal "send to family or friends" option, so that I'm protected against chargeback fraud. However, today was different. I had a buyer from Singapore want some of my online game stock. What's different between regular paypal and singapore paypal, you ask? My paypal (Canada):
I can't risk my personal bank account getting frozen by taking the regular form of payment (chargeback fraud can do this to the seller) since I am the single income earner in my household. So I had to tell him that I can't provide for him... A couple minutes later oh crap, bitcoin, of course!, rush back the to the computer and ask if he'd be willing to do that. He was! I got him setup on virwox.com, and transfered some bitcoin to me. He wants to be a regular buyer from me so he's going to seek out better ways (less fees) to get bitcoins in Singapore in the future to deal with me! <3ing bitcoin today. tldr; Singapore paypal regulation is no problem for bitcoin. EDIT: virwox.com has since stolen all my bitcoins on their site (.5BTC) and "refunded" me $250 in paypal, essentially stealing a few hundred dollars from me. Not cool, don't deal with them if can help it.
1 month after moving to a foreign country (China), I'm getting into bitcoin/cryptos, but having a hard time acquiring them. Questions and help appreciated!
As the title says, I picked the wrong time to get into cryptos. I was living in Canada until January, and just recently moved to China. Now that I'm looking to start acquiring bitcoins and other cryptos, I'm finding it difficult and wondering if anyone has any tips or suggestions to help me. China does not allow financial institutions to engage in Bitcoin trade, and merchants can't accept it as payment. You can trade it individually though, although that doesn't help me. It's difficult to set up a bank account in China as a foreigner, and I doubt I could link it up to an exchange if I could. I have my RBC account in Canada, but the current options, such as certified check or wire transfer have to be done in person. Currently I've tried:
Creating accounts with various exchanges where I can pay by credit card or through my bank account. Verification while abroad is difficult. I don't have any documents with me that I can supply as a proof of address that are less than 6 months old (as needed by Vault of Satoshi). One question I have is: do I need to supply a verified Canadian address? I could supply a police document in China that confirms my address here, but I'm doubtful that would be successful as it's pretty much all in Chinese. Bitcquick.com was so close to working, but keeps f'ing up when I try to add my credit card. Other sites won't work either yet.
I used Virwox to purchase about .1 BTC so far using my PayPal account, but after paying over 9.5% in fees before ever seeing any BTC, it's more or a less a last resort, and not one I want to use again.
Localbitcoins.com is also not practical in southern China.
Mining BTC is not really feasible. Perhaps another crypto and then converting to whatever I want, but it would require investing in the right equipment and jacking up my GF's mom's power bill (I've got enough on my plate living under the same roof as a Chinese mother).
I could try to earn BTC by freelancing, but I have no special skills, so I don't know what I could do.
Lastly, if I'm out of options I could always just send some $ to a friend to make a deposit for me in Canada. That's starting to seem like the cheapest and most viable option.
I don't know if anyone else is in a similar position or has experience this, but any suggestions or help are GREATLY appreciated! Edited for formatting.
Made a mistake in transferring money need some help.
Hey Everyone, I made a super dumb mistake and I don't know how to get out of it, and would really appreciate some advice. I use the following method to purchase Litecoin: Paypal > Virwox > USD > SLL > BTC > Transfer ot BTC-e > LTC Sometimes Virwox puts a 2 day escrow on the transfer. In my case they did this. Im about 26 hours into the escrow time. I made a stupid mistake and clicked the button to generate a new BTC code on BTC-e, so now the bitcoin address on BTC-e has changed. Luckily Virwox keeps a history of the old bitcoin address in my transaction history, so I have that information. What will happen? And what is the best way to make sure my money is not lost forever? Thank You
Doge Puppies Like Me: Come hear my tail, such learning, much waiting, yet such sweet Wow.
NOTE: This is a summary of my experience with DOGE buying. I am new to the internet world, very luddite, but hope to learn more. I am sharing my experiences for any others out here like me, who may be just starting out. I am a stay at home mom who browses imgur while nursing, long story short, I stumbled on to the news article about the Jamaican Bobsledders. Then I started my research and last week I jumped on the Dogetrain, all starry eyed and bushy tailed. I bought my first bitcoin on Virwox using my paypal account. It caps you at $104 USD. You then have to trade your Bitcoin for Linden dollars. Linden is currency from the Second Life, an Avatar game. After you make your linden trade, you can then trade your Linden for BTC. I ended up with around .111BTC, which isn't so great for $104 USD. I next signed up for an account at Coinbase. At Coinbase I had to enter bank account information, and then I bought BTC. The great thing about Coinbase is that they lock in the market price when you place your order. Even though I haven't actually received my BTC for 4 days (still waiting) I was able to buy it at the low of $781 per BTC. I bought .3 BTC for the price of $237. The next thing I did was pretty silly. I withdrew my BTC from Wirvox (paying .002 BTC withdraw fee) and transferred it into Coinbase. It took two (2) days for this transfer to take place. Once my BTC finally arrived at Coinbase, I realized I wanted to trade them for DOGE. Coinbase is ONLY for buying and selling Bitcoin. So, I had to transfer my BTC from Coinbase and into Cryptsy. Everytime you make a withdraw from one of these markets, you end up incurring some small fee. But if you are going around needlessly transferring BTC like I was, those fees add up. The transfer from Coinbase to Cryptsy took about a minute. Once at Cryptsy I traded my .111 BTC for around 65,000 DOGE. Next I transferred the DOGE into my Dogewallet that I had downloaded onto my desktop. This transfer took 24 Hrs. It kept saying, "pending" I issued a Cryptsy ticket asking what the hold up was and they responded promptly and fixed the problem by the following day. I am still waiting for my .3 BTC I bought from Coinbase to stop pending, once it does I will transfer it into Cryptsy and again buy more DOGE. I downloaded Dogecoin QT wallet for my desktop and transferred my Doge, this took around 12 hrs. The whole time I was stressing not sure what exactly I had downloaded onto my computer (a bug, a bomb?) But I googled and found out from reddit that this is a common issue with Dogecoin QT. I have also bought 10,000 DOGE on Ebay for $20,000 from a very kind member of the Shibe community who showed me how to find my wallet address, transferred an initial 1 DOGE to make sure it worked, and then welcomed me kindly and gave me an extra 1000. I also signed up for Doge Vault, and I have tested sending DOGE back and forth between my desktop wallet and the online wallet. The online wallet is faster in my opinion. TL;DR: Newbie's experience with DOGE, learn from my mistakes. Community Overlords of DOGE: this might give you an idea of what your average computer idiot goes through when they are starting out.
Wrote this with Australians in mind, but I suppose some of it applies widely enough. Been looking into buying Bitcoins in Australia. Harder than it should be, and have no idea why. Only seems to be two viable options for us. CoinJar seems to be a pretty nice site for Australia, but requires an NAB account or to go into the branch. It only takes a 2% commission but also has an inflated price by about 3% to buy coins. So 5% ish all said and done. This seems to be the best rate for Australians. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks legit. VirWox is nice and easy to do and can be done all online. Can buy SLL with PayPal and trade these to BTC. Took me 2 minutes to make an account and do trade. But they take a 3.5% commission straight off the bat for deposits. (PayPal also traded AUD to USD 3% under market rate) Deposited $50 USD via PayPal (57.40AUD), bought SLL, traded for BTC. Ended with 0.061BTC = $46.78AUD - all said and done about 20% commission. VirWox also limits deposits to about $120AUD/day http://postimg.org/image/x3v3bpm8p/ There are some other exchanges that you can do an international wire transfer for, which is both time consuming and costly. Localbitcoins is available as well, but with prices starting at 8% above market price. (Except for 1 I saw below market rate, but I suspect they'd change their rates once you requested to buy.) These usually require a bank cash deposit anyway for first timers, so coinjar would be preferrable. MtGox price is a bad indicator at the moment, I used BitStamp - Current price, USD, $694.06 Hope this is helpful, if anyone has any other sites they'd recommend in Australia, let me know. tl;dr Coinjar is good for australians to buy bitcoins, Virwox is easier but expensive.
For anyone with a SecondLife account and wants to use paypal to buy BTC
I have been using [virwox](www.virwox.com) to (essentially) buy bitcoins with Paypal. You deposit your USD with paypal or credit card or other method, then buy the Lindens (second life dollars). Then you can buy bitcoins with the lindens (SLL). This especially nice if you happen to have an old SL account with SLL just sitting there. And for anyone interested I have vouchers from virwox, if used when signing up gives us both 50 SLL (about $.20). They do have multiple fees and commissions though (Paypal, trading, withdrawing). Edit: You don't need a Second Life account to buy SLL or bitcoins. But you can bypass their max deposit limit by buying lindens elsewhere and transferring to virwox.
VirWoX was the major PayPal to Bitcoin exchange, but it got shut down in January 2020. eToro is the best way to use PayPal to gain exposure to Bitcoin. It allows you to speculate on the price but access the coins. Popular Exchanges.

Well, frankly speaking, eToro is the easiest way to buy Bitcoin with Paypal. eToro obviously will sell you Bitcoin, but you will not be able to withdraw bitcoins to your wallet or transfer them to other peers, you will be able to claim them with only fiat currencies like US Dollars and Euro. Basically, it is a tool of investment, not a tool for online trading. Virwox umgeht diese Betrugsmöglichkeit, indem der Bitcoin-Interessent zuerst Linden$ (SLL) via PayPal erwirbt.
