Could we cultivate something where traders can mark that they accept crypto currency for buying/selling? I feel like with the growing popularity adding a check mark box similar to "I trade internationally" or a spot to add BTC or ETH address next to PayPal on my page settings would be cool. Maybe it even leads to more trading activity and more new traders? Just an idea. yes

Yeah and for the crypto it gives your wallet ID like how it gives your PP address.

While you're at it, bill, it's probably time to remove the Yahoo messenger and Wii Console code entries from the account database since neither of them exist anymore

My impression of cryptocurrencies is that they are a kind of speculative investment and not actually used to buy and sell goods by most of the people who have it.

How many trades at gametz have been made that involve cryptocurrencies? ...any?

On the Settings/My account page, there's a section for "Offsite Links" and another for "General Items" (it's under Trading Options). The General Items are shown on your user page as, "I Trade: list, of, general, items". I think it's shown in offers too.

Paypal is under Offsite Links, but that's because I have a way to link it.

In my opinion, crypto fits better under "General Items". First, because there's no centralized link to use. Also because there are many cryptocurrencies. So, you could just list all the ones you're into.

And yeah, since it's doesn't seem likely people will actually use them as currencies here, listing your crypto like this would be a way to promote it, which I assume is the main goal for investors.

I was at the grocery store yesterday and there was a crypto ATM.

Maybe that's a common thing in silicon valley, but a super weird to see in KY where a lot of folks' idea of a luxury car is having a confederate flag sticker on the window and rubber ballsack hanging from tow hitch of their raised truck.

Using real money to buy fake currency is something I'll never get.

All money is fake when you get right down to it.

Its value is just a fiction we all accept to make the economy function more conveniently and efficiently.

I used $25 in "real money" to buy 12742 Dogecoin a few years ago. I sold about half of it for around $1000 in "real money" earlier this year. I have the other half left and it is currently worth about 17c each in "real money" -- so $1079.50 currently.

That is why I use "real money" to buy "fake currency".

I haven't taken a loss on anything. I was in early. I mined for a while. Have BTC, ETH, and DOGE mainly. DOGE was the first thing I bought along with some BTC only because, at the time, you had to go fiat->BTC->DOGE just to be able to buy some easily. I have two "accounts" where I track my crypto. One "mining" account where I just keep stuff from when I used to mine. And one "investment" account where I just keep track of what I've actually bought directly. I've certainly bought some now and then that ended up lower. So, I guess I have taken some loss. But, overall, no real loses at this point.

I also got really lucky on Garlicoin during its ATH period. The developers made a huge mistake with GRLC and those of us who mined it saw it coming. For about a week, I rented some virtual machines and mined the heck out of GRLC. I was literally renting as much from a guy as he'd offer. As GRLC came in, I was trading it off for ETH or whatever else I could get for it. There was a bit of a GRLC frenzy going on. What was funny was that I was telling anyone who would listen that it was about to tank and that I thought the developers had made a bad decision. I complained about it all over the place. But no one would listen, so I'd still sell/trade my GRLC to them. I sold some at near the ATH just before it dropped. (I kept around 6000 GRLC, but lost about half when an exchange closed -- but it was fairly worthless by then.) I mean, I didn't make thousands on GRLC or anything -- but I ended up with some ETH and bought my wife a nice watch that we call the GarlicWatch. smile

I mined smart cash for about a year. Before it tanked I had near 80,000 smart from mining. Some shady crap went down a few years ago... in summary- the coin pumped to $3, the exchange it was trading on locked trades for Smart while they off loaded their bank roll and when the dust settled the coin basically crashed. I think it was something like 3 days where smart holders were stuck. It never recovered. I still have about 20k coins in a wallet in my closet.
