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.
So I'm trying to buy bitcoin right, I have 35SGD in my PayPal and I'm trying to convert some of that into bitcoin. Not for investing reasons. Problems is, everywhere I go, I need either an ID or a verified PayPal account to buy bitcoin. That's not gonna work because I'm under 18 so Im not gonna get a verified PayPal account (no bank acct.) and I'm under 18, so ID probably won't work either. I think the site Virwox doesn't need id or verified paypal, but their fees are so high and their site is so confusing, I don't know if I'm gonna end up doing the wrong thing or not. Is there a way around this? One way I though if was depositing money from PayPal into a site like BitSkins, a market for game items worth money, then cashing out using bitcoin, but they charge 10usd every bitcoin cashout so that only high cash outs will be used. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you very much! Edit: All I need is 5 dollars worth of bitcoin for this purchase, its 10 dollars worth of bitcoin, I have 5 dollars worth of bitcoin, if someone could sell me 5 dollar worth of bitcoin I'd really appreciate it!

Is it possible to get Prepaid Debit Card with Bitcoin?
I live in a country where international payments are heavily restricted and paypal etc are not allowed. The debit cards obtained here is only valid in this country. I work online in my free time and earn in Bitcoin. I am a programmer and want to buy things (like cloud space, vps etc) online. But most site only accept debit card's. I have made a paypal (i use heavy virwox fees to convert btc to paypal as this is my only way to spend in most sites) for myself using VPN+VCC , but is there any way i can get a debit card from bitcoin? (Payment Restrictions will be ok i just want to buy small things). I made a neteller accounted but they blocked deposit + wihdraw in my account due to some reasons (even before i could deposit anything). Other services i find in google are mostly scam. Any thing legit? Thanks PS: I dont know why but this post got removed from /bitcoin
One method to buy bitcoin with fiat is first to buy Second Life Linden (SLL) with Paypal, and then to use the Virwox exchange to convert the SLL to bitcoin. Some people say that they have used this method several times with no problems, but others are furious that Virwox scammed them out of their money when they tried to withdraw their bitcoins in the final step. (Have a look at these reviews of the service; they are mostly bad.) I have some questions about this:
Is there any way to predict who is likely to be successful in this process and who is likely to get ripped off? For example, does it help to have a reasonably old Second Life account?
Virwox is an official Linden Dollar Authorized Reseller, and the terms and conditions of this arrangement prohibit them from selling things of value in exchange for SLL. So why are they even allowed to sell BTC in exchange for SLL?
Given that Virwox is somehow allowed to sell BTC for SLL in this way, why do they appear to have no competition? Why doesn't a US company start doing what Virwox claims to be able to do, but do it reliably instead? (Virwox is based in Austria.)
I would probably use this service to buy BTC if it didn't have so many extremely negative reviews. This process can also be used in reverse to convert BTC to SLL, and then to convert SLL to Paypal, and in contrast, that seems to be reliable. If anyone has any insight into these matters, I'm very interested to hear it.
Why aren't most of the top e juice vendors accepting bitcoin?
I know there is a huge wiki list of vendors that accepts BTC here: https://www.reddit.com/electronic_cigarette/comments/3niphd/the_big_list_of_bitcoin_accepting_vape_vendors/ But the list is a bit outdated, several of those top vendors no longer accept bitcoin. BX- Vapors, Blue Dot, 63 maui etc are the ones i would like to see add BTC as a payment option. Unlike most I am unbanked and rarely use prepaid credit/ debit cards. Bitcoin is just an easier option for me: 1. I have a few spare BTC laying around and with the recent price surge a small amount of BTC goes a long way again 2. It is easier for me to convert Cash to Paypal to BTC via virwox. 3. Fast, secure, irreversible transactions are also a plus. I understand some have concerns over the price volatility, but there are services such as Bitpay that allow vendors to convert BTC to cash instantly without having to hold on to it. Shout outs to Gordona vapes who had an amazing 40% off deal this Thanksgiving and i got the chance to use some of my left over BTC to pick up some Groolberry Cheesecake ( which is awesome by the way). Also to Mt. Baker Vapor, they also accept BTC, so far these are my two go to vendors from now on for the simple fact that the accept it. ALL OTHER VENDORS STEP UP AND KEEP UP WITH THE TIMES PLEASE!
An exercise on buying bitcoin with a credit card or paypal on Virwox
I keep seeing posts here by people wanting to know how to do this, or other people advertising the method using Virwox.com. You CAN get bitcoins this way, but it IS expensive. I have done this many times because I sometimes get given money by paypal, and I cannot withdraw it to a bank account, so need to spend it online. I checked my paypal balance and saw I had 170 Euros in it, so decided to do an exercise to see how many bitcoins I can get for that using Virwox. This is the result:
Started with 170 EUR Deposit into Virwox via Paypal = charges of EUR 0.35 + 3.4% Total landed into Virwox account: = 163.89 Convert to SLL: I want to sell 163 EUR, and get at least 51,547.97 SLL. Note: The above amount already includes our exchange commission of 50 SLL + 2.90%. Convert to BTC: I want to buy 0.223 BTC, and pay at most 51,597.93 SLL. Note: The above amount already includes our exchange commission of 50 SLL + 2.90%. Total after conversions: 0.223 BTC = 145.6 EUR on Bitstamp
Moral of the story, ONLY do this method if you have no other alternative. TL;DR - Pay 170 EUR for 145.6 EUR worth of BTC if you use Virwox to by using paypal or credit card.

So, here was me thinking I would use a website to buy Bitcoin to use to buy Dogecoin. I used VirWox as other Shibe said it was good. This Shibe lost money, please benefit muchly from my experience. So I deposit $USD -Lose money from conversion from AUD to USD -Lose money in PayPal fees (they take them out of your deposit) To buy BIT I first have to buy LLD -Can't convert ALL USD to LLD, so have money left over Then need to convert LLD to BIT -Can't convert ALL LLD, so have this left over also And each and every step in the way they charge you a fee + % Never again! I'd rather just wait to find someone willing to sell Doge rather than pay someone to use their computer for the transaction.
How to buy Bitcoins on Virwox and the real cost of going through Virwox
It seems like a lot of people are buying bitcoins through Virwox only to found out that they paid a hefty premium and that they have loose change in their Virwox account that they cannot redeem.. There are a few simple steps to avoid/minimize that issue. Step One: the fee to deposit cash onto your account I use Paypal and they charge you €0.35 + 3.4% in fees. In order not have any loose change since converting into SLL can only be done with Units of Cash (no decimal points) you need to work out the net deposit amount For example: if you want €100 then you need to deposit €103.89 Step Two: Buy SLL with Euros Next go to the EUSLL exchange and pick market order (it rarely is better to put a limit order since the fees for a limit order are greater than the extra you might earn from going in the order book with a higher limit, it’s possible but chances are since this a rather illiquid you’ll never be executed). Limit order fees: 3.90% Market Order fees: 50SLL + 2.9% At the current rate 1EUR = 269.7SLL, 100 euros will get you 26140 SLL (and you paid 832 SLL in fees or about 3 euros) If you put a limit order hoping to get a better rate, the best offer rate is 273.9, so going just in front of that at 273.8 will get you 26314 SLL or 174 more SLL but the fees are 1068 and the chances of being executed are very small. To give you some perspective you start getting less SLL with a limit order at a rate of 271.9… because you pay more fees (I always go with the market order). Step Three: Buy BTC with SLL The exact same fees apply (2.9% +50 SLL) so again you want to go with the market order. At the current BTC/SLL rate of 59100 SLL for 1 BTC, with 26140 I can buy 0.4286BTC of which you paid 808 SLL or about 3 euros in commission.. At the very end to withdraw your BTC into your wallet you’ll pay an additional 0.005 btc leaving you with exactly 0.4236 BTC. Conclusion: The current market rate for BTC/EUR is 210.48 on kraken, at that rate your 103.39 euros would have gotten you 0.4935 BTC or 0.0649 more than with virwox… all in all the total commission for that trade is about 15.41% or about 16 Euros. On average the total commission is between 13 – 20 % it all depends on how liquid the different currencies are… it’s as if you bought 1 BTC at an exchange rate of 242.37 EUBTC which is a pretty large spread but given the convenience for small amounts and the speed (for 2 timers the btc withdrawal is instant) and the anonymity this is one of the easiest ways to get btc fast and securely. Any comments are welcome or any other website or cheaper alternative are more than welcome. Note though that you do not need to give any kind of identification on virwox.. although your paypal/credit cards details will reveal who you are.
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.
This time I had $100 that I sent virwox.com Deposit into Virwox via Paypal = charges of EUR 0.35 + 3.4% Total landed into Virwox account: =$96.30 Convert to SLL: I sold $96, and got 22,443.02 SLL. Convert to BTC: I want to buy 0.301 BTC, and pay at most 22,422.35 SLL. Total after conversions: 0.301 BTC = 86,89 USD approximately
So the whole exercise cost me about 15% odd to use Paypal and virwox. Interestingly, that is not far off the market rate for South Africa where I live if I check on http://preev.com/btc/zar or go directly to http://www.bitx.co to see the local market price.
I used to get bitcoin with VirWox by buying SLL and then convert it into BTC and then send it to my btc address. But the whole labyrinth process cost A LOT. Payed 80euros received for 70euros of bitcoin. Hell. Are they other way to buy bitcoin instantly (cc/paypal because deposit is slow as hell) AND with minimal fees?
Hi there, Currently a student and unsure whether to commit to putting £200 into Bitcoin. At the moment, i have already spent £85 on Bitcoin which amounts to 0.295 Bitcoin so far. I have been doing so through Virwox, where i trasnfer money from Paypal to my Virwox account where i then have to transfer that into SLL then into BTC in which they take a fraction of it. Only reason i am doing so is because i don't have my card reader (currently ordered one) which would allow me to buy through localbitcoins.com as i need to add new payee's as a fast payment. Been following Bitcoin for 6 months or so and feel it is a great opportunity to put money aside and allow it to hopefully increase in value. I am willing to put in the £200, however do you think its best to use a Dollar Cost Average (DCA) approach over a period or just use the full whack and get it converted into BTC? In addition, i currently store my BTC in a Multibit wallet, when i transfer my extra funds into BTC do you think this is the best option to store them? I know there are better alternatives however they require some technical savvy, it is just to see if you think that Multibit is adequate for my needs at the present time. Any help or guidance is appreciated Thanks
After the previous post about buying Bitcoins with Paypal I noticed that people are also looking to sell Bitcoins with Paypal. (Oddly enough) This is done almost the same way, and yes there are transaction fees you need to take into account in this process. If you want a video explanation you can find it here Here is how it's done:
Open a VirWox account. This is the Virtual World Exchange originally set up for trading SLL (Second Life Lindens). Just register for a free account, no need to enter anything under avatar name.
Activate your account Once you register Virwox will send you an email with an activation link. Make sure to click on it.
Create a VirWox Bitcoin address Go to "Deposit" and copy your unique BTC address.
Transfer your Bitcoins into VirWox Just send your BTC to your address. If you are using Mt.Gox you can go to "funding option" - "Withdraw funds" - and just choose the amount of Bitcoins you want to send. The transaction usually takes less then an hour (assuming you paid the transaction fee on Gox).
Convert your BTC to SLL Go to the BTC/SLL exchange (middle left side on VirWox) and convert your Bitcoins.
Convert you SLL to USD Go to the SLL/USD exchange (middle left side on VirWox) and convert your Lindens.
Withdraw your USD to your Paypal account Do to "Withdraw" (upper left side on VirWox menu) and withdraw your USD to your Paypal account - there is no limit to how much you can withdraw.
There are many ways to get some bitcoins. You can get some with mining but for being honest this ways is actually more expensive than buying some. I had good expierence with Virwox (www.virwox.com). There you can buy Bitcoins with Paypal. They take a - in my opinion huge - provision but its the easiest way to get bitcoins within hours. First you have to buy some Linden-Dollars there but then you can convert them to Bitcoins. The fee in sum is about 10 % I think but its fast. Be careful because when you buy bitcoins there with your creditcard or with paypal or other payment methods you are NOT anonymous. So you have to tumble your coins, ie. with bitcoinfog (www.bitcoinfog.com or http://foggeddriztrcar2.onion/). You can also send your bitcoins to different wallet addresses to tumble them but they do it for you for a small fee. Be warned. Bitcoins are not 100% anonymous!!! Other ways to get some Bitcoins? Buy them on marketplaces like localbitcoins.com - there you can also buy bitcoins from people near to your area by cash for example. Use ebay! There you can buy also Bitcoins but they are not cheap!!! and so on! You like my tutorial?

[Beg] Please Help - My Family really needs your help.
First of all, sorry for making this post, I am really embarrassed to have to post this and I have made a new account to hide my identity. My family are struggling a lot financially and now we have to make a payment of £700 to cover the fix of a steering and brake problem on my parents car. It had to be fixed as they need it to get to work, they cant afford to pay for the bus either so the car is the only option (hence it having to be fixed) The work was done today before we knew the price and now we have to pay tomorrow. There is no way for us to get the money and we really need your help. I am begging, if anybody could donate even just 10 doge I would appreciate it so much. I would love to surprise my parents and help them. Address: DL6FTdBmijskqjaZpq6wwkPoU3hzE8WGcj I understand if you cannot or do not wish to help :) EDIT: If you wonder how I could use the doge to pay for the car, I would convert it to Bitcoin and then to Paypal with Virwox and then transfer to my dads paypal to transfer into his bank.
