Virwox Review: Is it Legit or a Scam? - 99 Bitcoins
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?

It had been roughly 4 years since I'd even looked at anything crypto-related, considering the fall of Mt. Gox had shaken investors to the core. Back then, crypto was still mostly the Wild West. You could only get Bitcoin through sites like Virwox after losing 20-40% in fees as you transferred from PayPay to Second Life Linden to Bitcoin... or shady sites where you had to use Dwolla or mail someone a money order and pray they didn't rip you off... or try your luck mining some of the new Bitcoin forks (e.g. Vertcoin, etc.) but odds are you weren't going to break even for at least 6 months, and I was too poor to buy and hodl long term. When I heard "bitcoin" mentioned on a mainstream radio station in May, 2017, I scrambled to dig out old hard drives, CD-R's, laptops. Anything I might have had an old wallet on, but alas, I had sold it all in 2013 at a loss (anything that hadn't been stolen already). Ethereum. "Hmm, that's new," I thought. And so, down the rabbit hole I fell, trying to decide now what to invest in. Bitcoin, yes, and some Ethereum. Ok, but the blockchains for these took days and weeks to download before I could even use them. There were new exchanges, such as Kraken and Bittrex. The fees were lower, and so I got started. Then, one night in June, I found ARK. I'm not sure exactly how. Going through the list of coins available, ARK stood out in the fact that you didn't need to download an entire blockchain to start using it. You just downloaded the desktop wallet, and you had coins transferred in 8 seconds. So easy, it was something your grandma could do. And then I continued to read about it. What it was built on, and how it worked. "Delegated Proof of Stake", definitely more affordable and environmentally friendly than running GPUs and ASICs with thousands of watts for mining POW coins. "ARK, then." I registered arkmoon delegate in an effort to solve a problem. Back in June, 2017, Ark delegates had a problem with pool hoppers. Delegates would schedule manual payouts either once per day or once per week. And right before a payout would happen, these pool hoppers would jump in and vote, essentially stealing potential rewards from loyal voters. My initial delegate proposal was simple. Vote for me; I want to create a system that credits voters at the block-level, so they earn only if are voting for you, and you'll never have to worry about blacklisting pool hoppers again. I got virtually no support, which was frustrating. It got to the point where I simply removed myself from Ark from about June till September since no one had been voting for me. I'd like to take a second here to give a shoutout to delegate jarunik, who offered words of encouragement during this stressful time. Eventually, in October, 2017, a mysterious benefactor with over a million Ark decided to give me a chance by voting for me. Eventually, they slowly backed away while I gained my own voters organically through my dedication and higher share rate. For this chance, I am eternally grateful. Around this time, the first biz delegate was created from 4chan, fat-fingered his payout and was begging for my solution. biz or the person behind it lasted a week, then was voted out in favor of the much more responsible GoldenPepe and his team biz_classic, who were able to release the first block-level payout script that was eventually adopted by (most) delegates. I say most, because there were several who never adopted it, and suffered as a consequence. As time went on, we had our fair share of scammers; people who would write decent proposals, and would run off with their forging rewards. Delegates who had zero technical skill who doubled forged on the network. We've had a delegate publish their private passphrase on the blockchain. But all-in-all, things continued forward, and dedicated delegates appeared to mostly where we are today. Then, we hit the big bull run in December, 2017 and everything was peachy. I had only been a delegate for less than 2 months, and really didn't have anything accumulated, but 2018 looked promising, so I kept working hard on building e-commerce and tax assistance sites to support the Ecosystem. As we all know now, we've been full bear mode for the past two years, but I have stuck with Ark in spite of it all simply due to the dedication I've consistently seen from the core Ark team and its delegates. The Ark team has been consistently improving the stability and security of the blockchain, even as the price has fallen as low as it's been. Delegates such as alessio are dedicated solely on making sure the blockchain is secure, and delegates such as goose and I have been trying to develop useful tools to help both delegates and potential ARK users alike. We have cams_yellow_jacket producing professional videos, and thegoldenhorde continually impressing the community with their merch and awesome designs. Delegate arkland has amazing raffles. I can honestly say that I am proud to be part of this community. Now, with the Ark Deployer, we are starting to see new people pop up in the Slack channels, asking how they can start up their own blockchains. The first person to start up their own chain is an accountant by profession, with little server-side experience and was able to get an Ark sidechain running in less than 24 hours. The true Ark Ecosystem is starting to form, and I am hopeful for the future. I'd like to just take a moment to thank all my voters, and to all of you in the Ark Ecosystem for your continued support. I don't know what the future holds for us, but I am thankful for how far we've come.
[Community Call to Action] - Get Bitcoin Services to Upgrade
I think now that we've added the new privacy features, successfully performed 3 upgrades and demonstrated we can overcome conflict and push forward as a decentralized community, the time has come to share this new version if Bitcoin with the world. We should let all cryptocurrency services and websites know that a new version of Bitcoin has come out, and that they should upgrade! Bitcoin Core was version 0.1, and now Bitcoin Cash is stable and ready for commerce. We should let people know they'll never run into problems with fees, that they can transact publicly or privately, that they have a vibrant community of developers willing to support them, and that this is Bitcoin 1.0. It just works. For 10 years, we've endured tedious trial and error on our journey to getting this new form of money right. We tried side-chains, second layers and different consensus protocols to no avail. We've picked the best technologies--the solutions that worked--and bundled them into one package: Bitcoin Cash. We should start by ensuring services are running the latest Bitcoin Cash version. One example would be bch.coin.space. We should also look at services like virwox which accept payment in Bitcoin, but don't use Bitcoin Cash. If we can convince them that our currency is cheaper, newer, faster and better, they might make the switch. Ensuring our infrastructure is strong and that our community continues to grow will keep us on the path to success. To those ambassadors who work every day to make our vision a reality, keep up the amazing work you do.
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.
WHY are we the thirteenth largest cryptocoin market, with more trade and more trend than bitcoin, and yet we do not have a single site trading USD/DOGE??
I have been purchasing coins through my friends account for some time now until finally I decided to register for my own at Virwox. When I originally registered I thought I could exchange USD for doge, or even doge to Bitcoin right there on the site. But to my dismay, this is not the case. First you have to transfer them to another exchange site to convert your money around a few times, finally enabling you to make the final trade, BTC/DOGE. This would be all fine and dandy if Virwox didn't have a mandatory 2 day delay minimum on all first transfers....And for people wondering there are no other places you can go to that don't do something similar. I deposited my money three days ago when I intended to buy doge for .000276 USD and now I'm losing out on a great deal of doge coins when you consider the fact that the doge market GREW BY OVER 2 MILLION DOLLARS in the course of the last day and a half.(jan. 14 - 15). In affect reducing the amount of doge I can now purchase for my bitcoins from 210,000Doge(for 60USD) to 140k. Edit: I forgot to mention the problems associated with having to exchange between different currencies. Firstly, any deposit into one of these crypto exchange sites take mandatory fees for just about every step in the process. My initial 60 dollar deposit was reduced to 57.65, and when I withdrew my bitcoins from the site there was a mandatory BTC xfer fee of .002 BTC. Oh but it doesn't stop there, you see, because you have to exchange your coins through so many different currencies before it lands on Doge, you are forced to leave behind tiny increments of your coins in different crypto wallets, as most sites will have a minimum trade amount for a certain currency. Take SLL for example, they only let you convert a minimum of 35 SLL into BTC at a time. So if you have say 100 SLL wanting to be turned into BTC, you will be forced to leave behind 30 SLL, as you don't have the required 105
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.

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. Disclaimer: I am not responsible for your money or actions. Any accusations to me (Rynsi) will not be accepted, use it on your own risk! 1. Introduction 2. Get started with Dogecoin 2.1 Install your wallet 3. Choose trading sources 3.1 USD/BTC 3.2 BTC/DOGE 4. Where to sell Dogecoin? 5. Good advise 6. Summary 7. Proof of Screenshots for the naysayers 8. Links 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. 7.

So, I bought some Bitcoin through Virwox in 2013. The plan was to buy some, forget about it and see what happens. Well, it's time to dig up those bitcoins but I dont know how, and I think they might be lost forever. I can find the transaction from VirWox, and my wallet bitcoin address. But I dont know how to access those bitcoins.. My computer got f'd up during the last 4 years so whatever wallet I might have had are gone. I dont remember choosing a 12 word phrase back then with which I could restore my wallet. I think I used MultiBit, and I have the wallet name (xxxx.wallet) and a password, but I cant seem to be able to access it with those.. I think I need the phrase which I dont remember choosing. So, are my bitcoins toast? :-/
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!
I need help - CryptoWall virus infected my client's law firm. I need some bitcoins...
I need to pay these "cyber-terrorists" with bitcoins. I need to send 0.82 bitcoins in less than 34 minutes or else it doubles to 1.64 bitcoins. I've been screwing around with this for over 24 hours. Where on earth can I buy some bitcoins using my credit card? I tried Coin Mama and WU/MG are declining all three cards. We contacted the banks and they are dumbfounded. I tried Coin.mx and there's a $250 limit. I tried VirWox and there's a $78 limit. I'd buy them from a bunch of places if I knew I could get it all to add up to 0.82 bitcoins in time. I would appreciate ANY help, guidance, hand holding, or even light extortion at this point. :( EDIT: To clarify, this is a NEW client. They called me AFTER getting the virus. I always teach my clients safe backup habits, but I can't time travel. This is why I am trying to help them pay the fee to get their files unlocked. I've never had to go this far because I've never had a company call me out of the blue with this situation yet.
I was considering buying a graphics card to mine (I have intergrated NVIDIA graphics, no CUDA support). I figured, if I am shelling out the cash for a graphics card, why not buy DOGE directly? If only it were that easy, shibe, if only it were that easy. Here is my story of the past 2 hours. Hopefully my post will help you learn what does not work. coinbase: my bank account did not support "instant verification" so now I am waiting for the verification transfer, supposed to take 2 business days. Waited for 2 weeks before and it never came . . . I will be more vigilant about customer support this time. localbitcoins: no one wants to meet and sell for cash in my area (same w craigslist). Other than meeting in person, I don't really understand the online transfers behind localbitcoins. dogefordollars: it's closed buydogefrom.us: apparently out of dogecoin bitstamp: requires bank transfer. I will stick to coinbase for the time being. justcoin: requires bank transfer. seems reputable though. virwox: seemed encouraging because they took credit/debit card. requires purchase of Second Life Linden dollars, but I am willing to do that. However, credit/debit deposit requires deposit through ANOTHER service called Skrill, at which point I say why bother. /dogemarket: haven't tried it, but half the posts there are about scams, which does not inspire confidence on my part. Plus, I would like to avoid PayPal, which appears to be their primary method of payment. I am a software developer and consider myself a technical person. I am trying to be somewhat private and secure about this whole process, which I suspect may be making the process much slower and more difficult than it would be otherwise. Can anyone confirm or deny? Is buying cryptocurrency really this annoying? I guess the difficulty of transferring USD is one of the reasons why Dogecoin and Bitcoin are good ideas in the first place.
Hello, it’s a long time I use Bitcoins so I’m not a Newbie, unfortunately I’m not able anymore to buy Bitcoins with PayPal. I always used VirWox but since I changed PayPal account (now I have a business one) they keep blocking the accounts because of “high risk indications” O.o I contacted VirWox support and they repeat like a machine “we received high risk indications so we deactivated your account”. Then I moved to IsellCrypto and it returns to me an error at the paypal checkout. It seems the only site that gives me that error at the time of purchase it’s isellcrypto, I don’t have any problems with paypal. Can anyone here sell bitcoins to me accepting PayPal?
The problem I'm facing is as follows; I had a lot of money in paysafecard, which I turned into bitcoins on virwox.com. From that website I sent 0.0032 btc to a newly generated address on Bitcoin core - 3J2tCijTKQLd6jtf3nk8QTtLa73xkVhgfk. (https://blockchain.info/address/3J2tCijTKQLd6jtf3nk8QTtLa73xkVhgfk). Now, what I didn't notice before sending to Bitcoin Core was the long syncing time, and I didn't have any space on my harddrive to download all the shit. Therefore, I went into the Bitcoin Core console: - dumpprivkey 3J2tCijTKQLd6jtf3nk8QTtLa73xkVhgfk (didn't encrypt the wallet so I could type that command straight) - got the private key - tried to sweep it into electrum - got error "No inputs found. Note that inputs need to be confirmed". The private key was " Private Key WIF Compressed 52 characters base58, starts with a 'K' or 'L'", so I tried to convert it to an uncompressed WIF key, starting with 5K via bitaddress.org. When I tried to sweep the btc to electrum with the new, uncompressed address, I got the same input error. Now, what's wierd is that when I check the address it does indeed have 0.0027 bitcoins on it. I double checked the privatekey many times through the Bitcoin Core console, and it's correct. NOW, the issue I'm facing is that I uninstalled the Bitcoin Core client by mistake, and lost the address containing the bitcoins on the client. I do, however, still have the privatekey. Therefore, finishing Bitcoin Core syncing isn't an option. Also, when I enter the privatekey into a wallet and get the address which it belongs to, I don't get the the same address that shows in bitcoin core - 3J2tCijTKQLd6jtf3nk8QTtLa73xkVhgfk. VIDEO showing the issue here: https://i.gyazo.com/040dc198efe8ff43d53b41d8a9a3cb9e.mp4 When in Bitcoin Core, I generated a new address - 3CtkTu3Um53F2xriKGZn6wLcAHUuCoZQKD, got the privkey from the console, entered it into a wallet, and when the address corresponding to the privkey came up, it was a different one from the starting 3CtkTu3Um53F2xriKGZn6wLcAHUuCoZQKD. The new address was 1PNVUnBPv4E23Eh8MKTnoNbBV7qCkka9x4. I suspect this is the same issue that I had with the original address. Any suggestions as to what I can do in order to retrieve my bitcoins to electrum or any other wallet for that matter?
I recently opened an account with virwox.com. Over the past few days I've been using it to purchase BTC from my PayPal account and Credit Cards. Today when i tried to log in I received the message: "Your account has been disabled!" I've sent an email and I'll update when/if i hear back. I'd be careful with these guys. It looks like I've lost 3BTC ! :( http://i.imgur.com/4PTbQ7T.png edit: since sending a link to this post to VirWox.com support there have been 2 downvotes...paranoid me thinks they want to bury this. edit #2: from VirWox Support: "...thanks for the free advertising on reddit :-) It seems that the respondents understand quite well why we have to be careful when accepting credit cards for bitcoins, especially when warned about potential problems...." Ok, maybe not an unfair response. Although they still haven't explained why my entire account has been disabled because of Skrill/Moneybookers complaints. I had an additional deposit through Paypal, which is ALSO unavailable. Maybe the weirdest thing about all this is that PayPal didn't give me any trouble! :) edit #3: It has been impossible to deal with either Skrill or VirWox. I've filed a complaint with Paypal, and will initiate charge-backs on the two credit cards when their statements post. Also, because i have the time and am ticked off, I've filed complaints with ic3.gov and econsumer.gov. So, that's it!
Sooo basically, i need 55 Euro (64 Dollars) in Bitcoins which would be around 0,009btc right now. I can only pay in PayPal at this point, so im forced to use Virwox (yeah i know it sucks). Can someone tell me how much Euros id have to pay in with Paypal to end up with the amount i want? Ive used this damn site twice previously and both times i messed up my calculations and had to pay the fees double
Where and how do you acquire your crypto? Is it still as archaic and backwards as it was before?
You could say I’m a slight newbie, but I’ve been lurking around for ages now. I was buying bitcoin back when the virwox method was still active, so I do know a couple weird ways to acquire it, but now with all the new kyc regulations etc I’m really stumped with how to acquire any crypto. It seems like all the major websites want you to go through 5 verification steps before you’re able to even purchase any... I have Coinbase, I also have bitpanda and yes, I have used localbitcoins etc before. I’ve even got revolut (but they’re quite useless as, you can’t send your crypto outside of the app itself). One of my issues is that I have a company registered card and due to it not being classed as “personal” I can’t make transfers to most localbitcoins sellers as they only want to deal with you if your name etc matches exactly with your account (which is understandable, but cmon, I can’t buy all my crypto from my personal account as I’m risking my bank closing my account). What I’m asking is has anything easier come out that doesn’t request to track your blood and dna samples? I know PayPal/Neteller etc is a bad method, but surely there are alternative payment gateways to get crypto apart from wire bank transfers? Isn’t this also the massive hindrance behind why people avoid getting into crypto? Imagine being an average joe, forced to send in 5 scans of your passport and ID with selfies, ofc most will refuse and just go back to using fiat.... what’s the point of this movement if acquiring the currency is 10000 times more difficult than going to your local exchange point?
In April 2011, VirWoX started accepting Bitcoin and currently, Bitcoin is the only cryptocurrency available on the platform. This basically opened a loophole for people to purchase Bitcoins with PayPal by first buying SLL via PayPal and then converting that SLL to Bitcoins. The site has over 740K registered users (at the time of writing this post). This platform offers service for the ... VirWoX is closed. As previously announced, the Virtual World Exchange (VirWoX) has permanently closed its business on January 6, 2020. VirWoX operated for more than 12 years, first as a place to buy and sell Linden Dollars for Second Life, and since April 2011 our users also traded Bitcoin. That made VirWoX the world's oldest Bitcoin exchange after MtGox closed in 2014. We wish to thank our ... Since Virwox is currently one of the main ways people buy Bitcoin with Paypal it attracts a lot of attention. Many people consider Virwox to be a scam while others say it’s legit. In this post I would like to share my own opinion of the site after buying and selling through them for almost 4 years. In April 2011, VirWoX started accepting Bitcoin and enabled to trade bitcoins for Linden Dollars (both ways), which are in turn convertible to EUR, USD, GBP, CHF, and the other virtual currencies traded on VirWoX. Other payment methods (deposit and withdrawal) include PayPal, Credit/Debit Cards via Skrill/Moneybookers, paysafecard, UKash, SOFORTbanking, and bank transfers. VirWoX is run by the ... Depending on the type of order (Market or Limit), this will convert the Linden Dollars to BTC immediately or at some later time. Finally use the "Withdraw" page to send the BTC to a Bitcoin address. You can also use VirWoX as a eWallet and keep your BTC there for later use. Full details of the process can be found on dedicated website VirWoX.
