Hi all Recently there’s been a significant number of elderly people (like 70+ year olds) starting up trades to buy bitcoin via cash deposit. I was wondering, since the average bitcoin user is a much younger age, is there anything scammy fishy going on? Or am I being to sensitive? I seems odd that there’s so many older people... the usual bitcoin crowd are around 20-40 y/o I think ... I have checked their ID + selfie, and custom message written on a piece of paper tho.

LocalBitcoins cash deposit to Wells Fargo - chargeback risk?
Hey, I'm looking to sell some BTC on LocalBitcoins via cash deposit. The buyer I'm looking to deal with has a very solid reputation (500+ trades @ 100%), however I am reading about the potential chargeback risk with cash deposits. Some say Wells Fargo will let the depositor reverse the cash deposit if they come back within an hour and have the receipt. I don't think this is a huge risk with a high volumed trader -- however I want to double check. Has anyone run into problems with a cash deposit with Wells Fargo, and is waiting an hour after the deposit a sure fire way of securing the deposited funds? Can I call my bank branch and let them know cash will be deposited soon and to explicitly make a note to NOT reverse any deposits without my direct authorization? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
I've just used localbitcoins to convert cash to bitcoins via cash deposit but signed using my real name on the receipt the bank kept. Obviously I figured I'm no longer anonymous, right? Is there a way to obscure the bitcoins now?
Is it hard to get ahold of bitcoins, or is it just me?
I used to have no issue copping bitcoins via cash deposit. But all of a sudden, it seems very very difficult to find a reliable bitcoin exchange. Bitinstant has been wonky for a few weeks now, and it seems every exchange I look into is down. I feel like the govt knows it cant shut these markets down, but it knows it can make it very difficult for us to get our hands on the currency of the black market. Thoughts?

Hi, We would like to update everyone with some our plan for going live. We have been speaking together latley about payment processing and have decided that we will be delaying our launch to work on native Bitcoin Multi Signature payments. We believe that the only way to be able to feel secure using a market place is with forced multi layer encryption, forced encrypted communication and the knowledge that it is not possible to have your bitcoins stolen from you. To understand how this will work, we first must give a basic explanation of how bitcoin works. Every address does not actually hold real funds, rather your private key proves that you own "outputs" on the chain. Each of these outputs is a previous transaction and your wallet GUI shows you the sum of your unspent outputs. For example, when you send a transaction, your wallet does the following:
* Get's all unspent outputs belonging to you * If the amount you are sending is more than the biggest output available, it continues adding these outputs as inputs till it has enough to cover the total you are sending, otherwise it will get the smallest output that covers the amount you are sending and use that as an input. * It creates an output of the amount you are sending and the wallet you are sending too. * If the total amount of all the inputs is more than you are sending, it creates another output called a "change wallet" which belongs to you and recieves whatever is left over (E.G, total output size is 30, you send 20, change is 10). * It signs this transaction with the private keys of the outputs that is is claiming and broadcasts it amongst its peers.
Bitcoin supports multi signature addresses which is a unique bitcoin address actually created by using 3 public keys of bitcoin addresses and any funds sent must use private keys - in this case, 2 - of the original 3 public keys to sign the transaction, thus preventing any 1 party from claiming these inputs on their own. Our idea is that when a customer places an order, they will input their enforced pgp encrypted shipping address and a bitcoin signing address and will then be given a new 3 way multi sig address generated from a mediator (Us), vendor and their own address. Any funds sent to this address will require 2 of the 3 parties to sign before they are able to be spent.
* For refunds, we will create a transaction with 2 outputs vendor and customer, splitting the original amount between both outputs and allow the vendor or customer to sign and broadcast. * Before an order is accepted and shipped by a vendor you are able to cancel the order and we will provide a signed transaction allowing you to void the contract. * If the vendor is offline for 7 days, all disputes created will include a signed transaction enabling a customer to cancel the contract. * If the order is finalized, we will provide a signed transaction sending 1% of the amount to an emengency wallet and the rest to the vendor. The customer and vendor could send eachother encrypted messages to get around this fee but we hope that they won't do that. This 1% will be sent to a wallet that will be controlled by the community and be for emergency situations.
This means that in the case of an emergency, alternative temporary forums could be put up by community members to facilitate the disbursment of in-escrow payments and prevent the loss of any bitcoins at all. We can't steal your bitcoins, the vendor can't steal your bitcoins and no malicous party can steal your bitcoins. Users would be paid a small bounty for finalizing their payments. This would be funded by the 1% fee and managed by trusted community members. This also means that we do not need to be tumbling coins and it will also be extremly difficult to analyze payments between vendor and customer. Each payment will look like any other multi signature payment on the network (Though there are not many multi signature payments currently as it is a new feature) and have no affiliation with any previous Marketplace transaction. We hope that P2SH becomes more standard as that would allow us to create more complex rules that would create an even more decentralized platform. We feel the typical flow for a user would be: * Use a Bitcoin Broker to buy bitcoins via cash deposits and send funds to blockchain.info wallet * Send funds to trusted external bitcoin tumbler (e.g, bitcoingfog) to wash for a day or two * Purchase items and input a bitcoin address public key and send funds from tumbler to wallet given * Recieve items, click finalize, review. The worst case flow would stop at clicking finalize and would continue more like: * Community forums setup, vendor creates thread to get money for shipped items * Users will sign the transactions for the vendor and recieve a payout from the emergency wallet managed by vendors (also escrow protected) * If a user did not recieve, they would be eligible to request a refund from the vendor but they would not recieve any bounty and the vendor can refuse or the user could withold the funds preventing them ever being by anyone. We will not be charging vendors a set fee per order but we hope that vendors pay our requested fee % of their own accord, this may change in the future if it proves unviable. We hope that this gets people excited about what is to come and allows our customers and vendors to feel a lot more safe. We hope to roll this out in the next few weeks and we will be connecting our payment servers to the Bitcoin Testnet to allow people to send real test bitcoins on the Testnet - https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Testnet.

There's an offer for the eToro trading platform via OfferToro right now. Deposit $50, make 2 trades, and get 7000 SB. They say it pays within 24 hours, but mine took 48 hours. Notes:
Find the offer by going to Discover -> All Offers -> Sort by SB Max-Min. The offer in the Inbox section doesn't show details / disclaimer, so go to Discover to get your screenshots.
GET YOUR SCREENSHOTS. The offer was changed a little within the last 2 days (it used to say 1 trade instead of 2,) and it might change again. So make sure to take all your screenshots, and document everything. I even copied the URL I landed on at eToro and made note of it, just in case I had to open a ticket.
This is via OfferToro. I've had bad experiences with them, and Swagbucks is unlikely to help if it doesn't pay out, so keep that in mind.
Because you're opening an investment account, they're going to ask for full, real name, address, SSN, even a copy of your drivers license. (They didn't ask me for my DL, but I found the spot in my profile section where it said to upload it. This is common for investment and brokerage accounts.) If you're not comfortable providing that info, you can't do this offer.
If you live in the US, they won't let you trade stocks or ETFs. Basically all you can trade is cryptocurrency like Bitcoin and such. If you don't live in the US, idk what rules apply or if this offer is even available to you.
Don't depend on getting your $50 investment back. You're trading in crypto, which is notoriously volatile. (Every time I've bought crypto, I've lost money.) Plus, there is a $5 withdrawal fee from eToro, and a $30 withdrawal minimum. So if your coins tank, they'll be stuck on the eToro platform unless they recover.
The offer doesn't say anything about how long you need to stay invested, or keep your eToro account open. I'm not saying that they'll claw your 7000 SB back if you cash out right away. But I'm going to keep my account open for 90 days before I close out because I'm paranoid.
This offer worked for me, but that doesn't mean it'll work for you! It's still Swagbucks, it's still OfferToro, and you know how they can screw you sometimes. ("tHIs ACTivITy cOuLDn't BE TrAckeD")
Offer text (as of 06/26/20, 9:15am CDT):
