Trading DOGE: Your full guide to trading Dogecoin for profit

NOTE: YES! This guide is long, but when you get started it's fast and easy.
Hi everyone,
my previous post about PTC's got so much hate. So I decided to make a full guide on how I made $120 last month. If the same interest and numbers remain you'll be making $100/month for two months, and $500/month for another month. On your third month, you'll be able to make over $750 if the market remains. These last couple of days I've just bought low sold high to people. The steps are really simple and anyone can do it, I'll show you all the steps in detail for maximum profits.

1. Introduction
I started trading Dogecoin (I'll talk about this coin soon) 5th of February, and saw a great potential in making money with it. With this guide, you'll make 15%-30% of your money back with each trade because the current market is limited, therfor YOU can provite this service that many people request. I started with $72 and now have $220, which makes my ROI 205.5%. I will show you how it's made step by step before it blows up and become viral!
2. Get started with Dogecoin
You can use it to buy goods and services, or trade it for other currencies (both other cryptocurrencies or traditional currency like US dollars). By far the most popular use the Dogecoin however is for "tipping" fellow internet-goers who are creating or sharing great content. Think of it as a more meaningful "like" or upvote, with real value that can be used all across the internet.
2.1 Install your wallet
To start using Dogecoin, you'll need a wallet. A wallet is just like your online bank account, only your entire account is stored securely on your local computer or in the cloud. From your wallet you can send and receive Dogecoin, manage your address book and review a history of your transactions.
Desktop wallets can be downloaded and run from your computer's desktop. Desktop wallets are more secure as they don't rely on a third-party server in the cloud:
Windows (click to download)
OS X (click to download)
Source code(if you're using Linux, you'll need to compile the wallet yourself)
For Windows and OS X users, simply extract the .zip file to a secure location on your computer, then double click on "dogecoin-qt" to run. For information on how to use your desktop wallet, check out this great site.
3. Choose trading sources
You know now how to get a Dogecoin wallet, but you will need to get an online wallet to save USD on, one exchange site to trade USD to BTC and one to trade BTC to DOGE. It might sound a lot to do in the startup phase, but it's really easy once you get going!
3.1 USD/BTC Exchange
There are a lot of options when it comes to buying BTC, but for now VirWox is the only one that accepts PayPal and VISA purchases. You can choose many different kinds of sites that accept USD/BTC trades, that is another story that is another story to be told. VirWox has a limit of depositing $780 per month, but after 60 days you can deposit $2800 per month, so trading as much as possible will be the best thing to do if you want money.
USD Storage: PayPal
USD/BTC Exchange: VirWox (ref / non-ref)
To deposit dollars with (VERIFIED) PayPal to VirWox, you need to be a verified user. This is to prevent frautend actions such as chargebacks and instant payments. The deposit will be instantly made after you complete the order and you can start trade. To trade, you first have to buy SLL with the USD on your account [!!!WARNING!!!] USE LIMIT ORDER and NOT market order.
Now do the same, but with the SLL/BTC exchange. I repeat, do NOT use the market order. Use LIMIT ORDER to get as much BTC as possible.
You have now successfully completed a USD/BTC exchange!
3.2 BTC/DOGE Exchange
This step is almost similar to the previous Exchange, but this step is only with Crypto-currency (read Bitcoin and Dogecoin).
BTC/USD Exchange: Cryptsy (ref / non-ref)
To exchange to BTC, you need to withdraw your BTC from VirWox to Cryptsy. This is made in the Cryptsy balance page, where you can generate a BTC deposit adress. Unfortunately, you have to wait 48 hours the first time for VirWox to accept your deposit manually due to security reasons, all the other transactions in this guide will be almost instant.
Now when you have BTC on your Cryptsy account, you have to do the same as you did with USD/SLL and SLL/BTC, really easy! When you have traded to DOGE, your downloaded Desktop Wallet comes in handy. Deposit the DOGE from Cryptsy to your Desktop Wallet and you're ready to go to the next step!
4. Where to sell Dogecoin?
This is a great surprise I have waited to tell you, you use REDDIT to sell Dogecoin! It's really easy to do. Go to /dogemarket/new and see what the current prices are. You can sell for the same price as others, undercut for faster sales or overcut for slower sales (but bigger profits!). You structure the post by [SERVICE] AMOUNT RATE PAYMENT TYPE (SPECIAL OFFER). Here is an example, my last post where I sold Dogecoin. If you follow my conversation in that post you will see how typical trades are being made.
When you have traded the Doge you can make a post on the /dogemarket verification thread where you achieve levels that will be shown for other users through your flare. Notice the orage flares, those indicate level of trades, age and amount you have traded. These are good for noticing legit and fake users, but always be of scammers!
5. Good advise
A. Only accept GIFT (friends and family option) from (VERIFIED) PayPal, DO NOT accept eChecks or transactions that has to be accepted first. eChecks and Instant payments can be chargebacked and gifts will prevent this from being possible.
B. If you have reached VirWox deposit limit, wait a while to see how the BTC/DOGE market is going. You might make some extra 1000's of DOGE if you wait a while.
C. Always be nice and kind to the DOGE community, they are really friendly, patient and polite, be so too!
D. Try to be fast in your transactions on /dogemarket, good service equals good reviews.
E. PEOPLE WILL TRY TO SCAM YOU! Always check for names including "shibe" or "doge" and new accounts.
F. Have fun! If you have fun trading and communicating with other people on Reddit, you will enjoy yourself and have a better time making money.
6. Summary: A step by step guide to make $100+/month
(and $500+/month after 60 days if market remains)
Download your dogecoin wallet.
Sign up to PayPal, VirWox and Cryptsy.
Add money to your (VERIFIED) PayPal account.
Deposit the money to VirWox.
Exchange money to SLL.
Exchange SLL to BTC.
Withdraw BTC to Cryptsy.
Exchange BTC to DOGE.
Withdraw DOGE to Desktop Wallet.
Make a post on /dogemarket.
Recieve PayPal money from buyer.
Send Dogecoin to buyer.

This is my first guide: making over $100/month with a $72 investment. When your VirWox account is 60 days you'll make $500/month and when your VirWox account is 90 days you'll make $750/month (if market remains as it is).
I think it's a big effort by me trying to teach you how to make money, so I would really appreciate you using the referral links. If you find any errors in my guide, please don't hesitate to tell.

How can I buy bitcoin with a Visa Gift Card?

I've been searching around, and I've seen this question asked a lot. But it always gets a bunch of different and conflicting answers, and the OP never seems to update with his eventual solution. I'm sorry if you guys are tired of hearing this.
I have a few hundred dollars in Visa Gift Cards, and I'd like to use it to purchase bitcoin. This will be my first purchase so it's all very confusing. The gift cards have the word "Debit" on them, if that means anything.
I've found that you can use gift cards to buy Linden dollars from VirWox and then exchange them for bitcoin. But it seems that this could take up to 48 hours for some reason. Is this the case? If so, I'd prefer a more speedy method if one exists. Also, VirWox seems to have a really low max amount (like $90 iirc) that you can buy at once. Is it possible to make multiple purchases at the max amount in a short time?
There are some people on LocalBitcoins who accept Visa Gift Cards, but they're charging like 150% the going rate for bitcoin, and I'm worried about being scammed. How can I know if users on LocalBitcoins are legit?
Some people claim to have had success with Circle, others claim no success. It seems to be pretty hit-or-miss. So what's the deal with Circle?
I've seen bitquick.co mentioned. All of the listings on their site say "Bank of America," "Any local credit union," "US Bank," etc. Is it possible to buy bitcoin with my gift card on bitquick.co, and how do I go about it/which listings can I use?
Purse.io has been suggested. I don't know much about it. How does it work?
I'd appreciate any advice on using these sites or any others you guys know of. I'd love it if I could find a way to purchase my coin in less then 24hrs, but if I must use VirWox and suffer a long wait, I guess it is what it is.
Thanks everyone!

Buying Dogecoin is so hard

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.

HELP missing BTC for over 24 hours

Hi Guys, hopefully one of you can help. I bought my BTC via Virwox, then sent them to my BTC wallet that's on my desktop. these funds arrived without any problems. Then I attempted to send these funds to another bitcoin wallet which I use on my phone. The transaction was delayed for hours so I hit 'reset blockchain' on my wallet (Multibit) and now my balance has disappeared. When I look through my transactions on multibit I see that transaction for +0.48 BTC but my wallet shows a balance of only 0.0029 BTC
EDIT: All OK now, money bounced back into account after resting the blockchain for the 2nd time, using Electrum now

How Not TO Buy Bitcoin with Paypal Through VirWoX (Getting Your Account Closed/Suspended)

I wanted to create a totally anonymous website that no religious or political force can easily take down and threatens my safety (FREEDOM OF SPEECH!). This means having both domain and hosting services outside US and "controlled" countries.
One of the step is acquiring bitcoin to do the needed payment to be anonymous. I tried using the famous process of buying BTC through VirWox and would like to share HOW MY ACCOUNT WAS CLOSED to help others AVOID these.
Here's, the email sent by VirWox Support:
"Hello, unfortunately we have received high risk indications for your account. We have therefore refunded your payment and closed the account."
Here are the possible reasons why what I've done was high risk.
  1. Email account used is mail.com where there's no identity verification required.
  2. Used pseudonym and fictitious contact information throughout (let's call her Maria)
  3. VPN with IP on the address of Maria
  4. Browser cache cleared. Used private window.
  5. Turned off all "location" and other privacy invasive features of your computer.
  6. Created account on VirWox for Maria
  7. Deposited USD through a paypal account of a willing friend (thus different name from Maria)
  8. Bought SLL with USD
  9. Bought BTC with SLL
  10. Withdraw BTC
  11. All above steps were done on the same day
Within 48 hours, I got my VirWox account closed and all money refunded (including fees - good news atleast)
Next time, I would probably buy BTC from VirWox disclosing my real identity using my own Paypal. However, this removes one layer of anonymity.
Any suggestions on how to buy bitcoin with paypal allowing maximum anonymity? Thanks!

Dont use Virwox! They're scammers

I deposited $100 dollar to my virwox account and transfered all my money to my bitcoin wallet . Since my account is new i had to wait 48 hour to recieve the bitcoin.
But then today when i tried to login they blocked my account for whatever reason and they haven't even send me an email , i contacted them 5 time no response and its already been 7 days .
submitted by philips4350 to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

So I finally bought my first bitcoins ever but I wanted some people to be aware of some limitations

If you're new to this entire process like me, you have to keep an open mind when attempting to buy bitcoins. Of course after the initial purchase it becomes easier to purchase. The website I used to complete this transaction was Virwox and it couldn't have been any easier. The problem I encountered was the fact that I attempted to use my debit card - the service they use to accept payments (skrill) does not work in Illinois so I was almost stuck. I ended up using my verified paypal account and it worked perfectly. I deposited 23.85 USD into my account after selecting the 25 USD payment. Skrill took a fee from that. Then I exchanged my 23.00 USD into SLL and then I exchanged my SLL into bitcoins.
TL;DR:
EDIT: Oh yea I forgot to mention that you need to wait 24 - 48 hours before your funds get manually released. I sent a payment request and since I have a newly registered account, I need to wait for them to release it.

New to Bitcoin, feeling jaded. (bit of a rant)

Thought i'd share my perspective as someone who has just now started using bitcoin.
Not a day has gone by in the last year or so that i haven't seen something about bitcoin. Certainly the praises are high. So when i saw something i'd like to buy listed in bitcoin i decided to pull the trigger and buy in.
I was surprised to see my options for using my credit card did not appear to be very numerous.
After some reading people suggested to use virwox as they are supposed to be fast. I sign up deposit $50 into virwox which ends up as 47.xx after fees only to discover i can only buy SSL or second life money (that's a thing?) to transfer that into bitcoin. Convert the 47.xx to SSL..there'll be a fee for that. SSL to BTC? fee there too, withdraw your btc? you guessed it another fee. At this point i'm out over $5..that's over 10% in fees!
Whatever let me just transfer to my wallet and buy my item and i'll be done with it. Oh..you have a new account? there will be a 48 hour hold until we transfer to your wallet.
Now the price of my item is set in USD ($43) and obviously the price of bitcoin is ever changing. Now i'm just hoping i'll still have enough BTC to buy it by the time my funds are released to my wallet.
Obviously i went about transferring my money the wrong way. I know bitcoin is just starting out and everything. I want to trade in bitcoin to support it....but you guys are not making it easy. I can't begin to imagine what it would be like for the average non technical user.
tldr; too many fees, virwox sucks, must be impossible for someone non technical to get into btc.

Say, what are the most straightforward ways to Sell BTC and get USD or other currencies?

I figure adoption for Bitcoin will move a lot faster when it's easy to cash out. You know, safer to enter a building once you know where all the exits are, and all that. :3
The simplest method I know presently is The Rock Trading -> Linden Dollars -> Paypal, which I have tested.
I do have bank accounts and debit cards, but I don't know anything about what ACH or International Wire are. I don't know their timeframes or fees, and I assume that entering bank account numbers and routing numbers into not-so-well-known sites would be a pretty big risk.
Has anyone made up a grid displaying "round trip fees" from different currencies to and then from BTC, showing expected % loss, time delay and potential anonymity compromise and inconveniences (frictions) at each step? If not, does anyone know some good sources for such data, and I could help to compile such a list? :O I think that would be a goldmine for anyone shopping around for BTC liquidity options.
For example, round trip USD through the rock involves:
Thanks in advance for sharing your data and perspectives! :D
UPDATE:
Trying to run a few tests on Paypal USD->LL->BTC->LL->Paypal USD at present. Results thus far:

I have a headache...

So, basically i've been trying to buy some coins, with not very much luck.
I did my research before i set off trying to buy my first bitcoins. Read a couple guides here, a couple there, and then started trying.
I live in a country where most methods of obtaining BTC are unavailable (most cash deposits, etc), so i have limited options, and i'm stuck using a prepaid Visa card.
My first attempt was using MtGox. Basically the chain went like this: Mtgox > AurumXchange > Liberty Reserve > Centregold. My prepaid visa card ended up being rejected multiple times on centregold, so i scrapped that idea. A couple days go by and before i know it i'm sitting in front of my screen with a fucking headache looking at a word document with 10+ accounts and passwords for various exchange and wallet websites.
And then finally, I thought I found a way to make it work. I could go to a cashU distributor near my house, put money onto my cashU account from the card, then fund my Okpay wallet via cashU. Everything was going so well, until i tried to transfer my 30 bucks from Okpay into my BTC address.
I got an error message telling me that my account had to be verified. To do that, I have to scan and prove my identification, verify my phone number via SMS (which didn't even send), and scan proof of my god damn house documents...
So like, i cant really get my house documents since i live with my parents, and i dont want them questioning me.
Oh, and before all of that, i tried using VirWox.com, which apparently is a good way to do it in my situation. Too bad I have to wait 24-48 hours for my single bitcoin, and that single bitcoin is not on my Virwox account nor my BTC address. I understand however, since every post that had recommended Virwox did say that you must wait 24-48 hours for them to manually continue the transaction from Virwox to a bitcoin address.
NOTHING IS WORKING
If you guys are wondering, I live in the middle east, and afaik CashU is the only way I can get money onto my account. And that money is now stuck on Okpay.
I think Moneygram also works, but I still am yet to find out how to sort that out to get BTC out of it.
So to wrap it up, if ANYBODY on this sub has been in a similar situation as mine, PLEASE help a brotha out and throw me some helpful options, cus im about to go fucking crazy clicking on these ads for free 0.0000005 btc. All i want is one single god damn coin. I have the money, I have the motivation, I have the plan once i get that coin, but all I need is the coin. If anyone can give me some nice directions you'd be a lifesaver!!!
TL;DR: Tried to buy some BTC. Now im sitting here, and my brain is fucking fried. In the past couple days i've managed to get $30 stuck on an Okpay wallet, and 1 BTC stuck inbetween Virwox and my Bitcoin wallet. I've toured so many fucking russian bank websites its ridiculous. Help.
Sorry for the wall of text, but to be honest thats only like 10% of the bullshit ive been doing to get this BTC.
PS: just re-read all of that, it all looks pretty bitchy-complainy-pants, but i'm just frustrated and confused, that's all.

VirWox, PayPal, BTC, and Headaches

This is for BTC noobs like myself.
I recently decided to play around with BTC a bit to the tune of ten dollars or so.
The quickest and safest mechanism seemed to be through PayPal via the Virtual World Exchange, or VirWox. A number of guides and tutorials made reference to the site so I figured I'd give it a go despite mention of "slightly higher" fees.
My experience with VirWox left me with a few points that I thought others might benefit from being made aware of.
1). All BTC transactions are minimum .02 BTC, an arbitrary limit not imposed on other currencies on VirWox. This is NOT listed anywhere on their FAQ.
2). In addition to a 3.5% deposit fee, VirWox charges 3% fees on each currency conversion As two conversions are necessary to go from PayPal to BTC, this brings the total fees up to about 10% not including PayPal's cut, just to get your money into BTC form on their exchange.
3). VirWox takes a .002 BTC fee on any BTC withdrawals amounting to a full 10% of a minimum BTC transaction thus bringing total fees on a minimum order to a fairly astronomical 20%.
4). VirWox states that first-time BTC orders will be delayed by 48 hours. In fairness to them this is acknowledged in their FAQ but their wording is not terribly clear.
"While most withdrawals to PayPal, NETELLER, Moneybookers, and Bitcoin accounts are processed instantly, we manually check some of them for security reasons (for example of new accounts). They will be processed within 48 hours. In any case, you will receive an email confirmation when the withdrawal has been processed. Note: For security reasons, the first withdrawal of bitcoins will always be delayed by 48 hours."
So it will be processed within 48 hours?
Delayed by 48 hours and then processed within 48 additional hours?
Which is it?
5). Repeated emails to their customer service have proven useless in regards to ascertaining information about the duration of the delay.
I emailed VirWox to ask if I had to wait a full 48 hours or if there was a chance that the transaction could be processed sooner. Upon doing so I was ever so helpfully referred to the FAQ which didn't answer the question at hand. After emailing VirWox a second time with the same question rephrased, I was told that "disclosing the rules which payments are selected for a manual review would be counter-productive". I've emailed a third time, again asking the same question regarding delays. Stay tuned for more lulz.
Now I'm wondering if I should just dispute payment on Paypal and walk away from this giant mess.
tl;dr - VirWox seems a bad choice for those wanting to buy a small amount of BTC to play around with.
Update
After repeatedly asking if I had to wait a full 48 hours, I was told by VirWox customer support:
"The thing is we will not answer such questions. Like Coca Cola will not reveal the formula for coke."
Maybe this belongs in WTF.

Help with Multibit backup would be greatly appreciated

Hi there,
so i have just recently recieved my first fraction of bitcoin and was wondering how to back up my multibit wallet to a usb stick? I have scanned the subreddit and online forums but i am failing to grasp the process.
I have put a password on my wallet, do i then put a password on the export file? How often do i back it up?
Also i have just bought more BTC which is being sent to my multibit account from Virwox, takes up to 48 hours though, will i wait for the BTC to go into my account before backing up?
Sorry if i am being vague and not very understanding, help with backing it up would be, as i said, greatly appreciated.
Thanks

First time buying Bitcoins, virwox really slow?

Hey guys, i wanted to use my credit card to buy bitcoins, so i was able to do so on virwox, i paid with skrill and everything went thru, i clicked cash out and it said that it should take 24-48 hours, it now has been more than 60 hours and i still didnt receive anything. I strongly believed that i would've gotten these coins way faster since their fees are so fucking off the charts, Is this normal?

Help

I got bitcoins sent to my silk road account and the process took 48 hours and the site went down for the holidays while the process was confirmed. I used virwox and have never had issues before. Is it because the site went down when the bitcoins were sent?

[rant] Has anyone else had issues with successfully exchanging USD for BTC with VirWox? Two days ago, I paid $97 USD for SLL, and exchanged the SLL currency to BTC, and then finally withdrew the BTC to my private wallet. However, they said it might take up to 48 hours to confirm the payment for security reasons. I was fine with that, until this morning, when they decided to refund me with $97 into my bank account due to "high risk indications". I call bullshit on this. I tried using them about a year ago, and just on the Skrill checkout page, they declined my payment. They proceeded to call me about it, and I confirmed that the payment was mine. Shouldn't this send a message to Skrill and/or VirWox that the card is being used legitimately?

Experienced miner looking to buy ~1 BTC in Australia with <12 hour timeframe... the nightmare begins??? Cash deposit at bank only possibility?

This is my first experience 'buying' bitcoins. It certainly has not been pleasant so far. I can see why a lot of people would give up or find it too complex.
I'm not verified at Mt.Gox and would be too slow.
No phone or sms services seem to be available / have coins / work in Australia.
Blockchain.info wallet gives me no funding options from any services in any currency (thanks!?).
BitInstant/zipzap funding seems not available or not possible??? Also bitinstant is doing some kind of maintenance according to their frontpage...?
Numerous other shitty sites registered for but never come through.
Paypal is a joke because no one trusts me not to do a chargeback (everyone's a scammer and/or a criminal, riiiiight?). Although I do currently have a virwox "Paypal SSL BTC" transfer pending, it will take at least another day to process... (Doing it as a experiment, not because of desperation.)
Localbitcoins seems unlikely to be arranged and a done deal in time.
Any service involving credit cards seems to have delays/waits of 24-48 hours minimum.
Seems my only option is to deposit cash at a bank with spendbitcoins or coinjar. Oh the joy... banks don't open until about 9-10 hours from now... so it'll be cutting it close to my deadline.
Is there any options I'm missing?
EDIT: ended up using CoinJar... very happy! Crisis averted for now.

Bitnovo. Is it legit?

https://www.bitnovo.com/
I stumbled across this site because I'm trying to get bitcoin and virwox is making my 80 dollar order take 48 hours. Coinbase takes 5 days, and I can't use circle.
Anyone know how I can buy 75 more dollars of bitcoin tonight? With card. Or bank transfer, but those generally don't process instantly.
Thanks.

Having issues with Virwox, looking for some insight

So the first time I used Virwox to get bitcoins was a few months ago. On my account overview, it says my deposit limit is $260. Yesterday I needed to get some BTC, so I went to VirWox. Tried to deposit $150. Got a message saying that was above my daily deposit amount...After about an hour all I could deposit was $75.
What is going on here? Everything on my account overview is telling me that I should be able to deposit up to $260, yet all I was able to deposit was $75?
I am trying to get another $75 in now and I am getting that same frustrating message saying it was above my limit.
I am really frustrated right now. $150 worth of BTC does not seem like it's worth this amount of confusion.
Please help, thanks.
EDIT: Oh, and another thing. When I converted my money into BTC and deposited it to my address, I was told they had to manually check it and it would take 48 hours. What the hell? My account is months old and I have quite a few transactions done already. Why am I getting screwed? I am so frustrated and angry right now. It was easier for me to do all this when I first created my account...

Using VirWoX to get started with some coin (my experience)...

A couple of weeks ago I decided to take the plunge and try and get comfortable with Bitcoin. I read a few sites, a short book even, downloaded and played around with a couple of wallets, and found myself in kind of a catch twenty-two. To get the hang of Bitcoin, I'd really need some currency to mess around with. To acquire said coin though, I'd ideally already be conversant with using it. I mean, there's a lot to get your head round initially, and I didn't want to get scammed on my first transaction. So, what are your options?
Well, there's asking nicely. Not a sure thing though, and maybe not really meant for me? I'm not broke, exactly. Just sort of insolvent.
Then there's serfing the web. I won't link to it because I'm not cool with it, but I found a few sites that would throw you a couple of Satoshi for viewing awful adverts over several hours (depressing), or solving captchas (potentially ID theft enabling). Yeah, not for me.
Any other options? Well, there's VirWox, this site that lets you buy Linden Dollars (the currency of Second Life) with PayPal, exchange Linden Dollars for Bitcoin, and transfer Bitcoin to a wallet you've got set up elsewhere...
Okay, one thing, this is not anonymous. You're potentially associating your Bitcoin transactions with your RL personal details by putting PayPal in the mix. For me, at this stage, that isn't important; but perhaps it is to you.
So anyway, I made an account, PayPal'd ten dollars in, and exchanged what was left of that after the PayPal fee had been deducted for 2,060.47 Linden fun bux. Cool. There's a commission involved in that though, about $0.40 on my now nine dollars something. Oh well, on to Bitcoin.
Two thousand Linden Dollars is apparently not enough to make the minimum trade for Bitcoin. Sigh, fine, back to PayPal. Another ten dollars in, and my four G in Linden stuff becomes... Okay! I've got ฿0.034 in my pocket. Well, almost. It turns out new customers have to wait up to 48 hours to get that last step verified.
Worked though. Thirty something hours later, the balance showed up in my phone wallet.
Would I use VirWoX again? I don't think I would. I expect things would be a little quicker second time round, but those charges really add up.
Would I recommend VirWorX to someone in the same boat I was in, looking to acquire a little currency safely and willing to pay a premium to do so? Yeah, actually, I think so. It was slow and expensive, and worryingly, the site was down for a couple of hours at one point, but ultimately it worked. Not a bad place to start, in my opinion.

VirWOX disabled my account. What did I do wrong?

About 2 days ago, I deposited $30 to my virwox account and converted those to SLL and then converted the SLL points to Bitcoins. I then withdrew the Bitcoins directly to Silk Road and received a message to wait 48 hours for the transaction to complete. I then tried to log in today, but it says my account was disabled and they have refunded my $30. Was I wrong to deposit directly to Silk Road?
