Buy them from an exchange.

Mine or buy. Mining is hard, but is "free", buying is an investment. Honestly, I think dogecoin is still mineable if you can stand circlejerk. It's popular and it's -fun- or something. Plus it's easier to get into. Mine from a pool, either way, or buy.

Depends highly on your computer
probably not worth it unless you have something that can compete
not to mention that they get harder to mine
dogecoin's probably a bit easier, idk. choose something thats easy to mine that will retain value.

any suggested exchanges or wallets to use? i looked at the sellers at localbitcoins but they all seem to want you to pay in walmart gift cards or cash deposits to certain banks. is it possible to just pay online with a credit card?

>mining is free
That's the silliest thing I've read all day.

Very little, for bitcoin at least. Post your stats, though. There are lots of other *coins that might be worth your while, although it's really not worth it unless your computers are really good or you get free electricity. Definitely mine in a pool.

You can buy online with a credit card. Blockchain used to have a list of the different exchanges, but I can't find it now so you're on your own there.

this is also the case now for pretty much anything without an ASIC chip or industrial power discounts.

Thorough calculations are posted on bitcoin website...

Traditionally the power use v. performance for using nVidia cards for mining is very bad. AMD cards use less power to get more or less the same performance. According to the bitcoin wiki nVidia cards use too much power to turn a bitcoin profit.

Last time I tried mining on my AMD 4890 card, I got .01 BTC for 48 hours of mining. To get much more, you'll need either a modern high-end card or a SLI/CF setup.

If you need to buy a new graphics card just to mine a few dollars' worth of bitcoin, I don't think it's worthwhile.

It's *definitely* not worth it. At this point, you need specialized equipment to mine BC. They don't even use graphics cards anymore. A graphics card uses more electricity than the monetary value of the coins created.

Heres a great and easy ass way to get bitcoins really vheap. Best part is you can use a debit or credit card.

  1. Go to expresscoin dotcom and make an account
  2. Place an order using money order option
  3. Go to your post office and get a money order for the exact amount using cash, debit, or credit card
  4. Mail it
6. Bitcoins!

Virwox is instant and from the internet, and the only place you can really use paypal.

That is, after they take out like 15% of your money during all the exchanges cause of fees, and the first btc withdrawal takes 48hrs.

But after that it's all very simple, it's like 3 clicks and a relatively large fee but that's it.

Localbitcoins is just
>make the payment offer
>walk to local bank, put in the deposit slip for the person's bank #
>receive bitcoins when he releases them
They usually cost 5% more than the actual btc value which isn't bad at all, for such a simple exchange.

If you're trying to buy them to invest, then, well, lol

if you want to avoid fees and buy directly from sellers you can do so via IRC at bitcoin-otc. google it. you might have to pay a little extra the first couple of times before sellers trust you, but yeah this is a good way to eventually get a better price than any of these shitty ass websites that charge you out the ass

You can buy with just a back account too.
Paypal if you really want. Slightly hard. Google it if you want.
Also, if you want to buy them anonymously google that too. Will require some more work though.
This will tell get you started. Google anything more challenging methods if wanted.

Man. Every few months we have a bitcoin thread bump to the top of this board.

And the truth still remains: y'all missed the bitcoin boat. By like, years at this point.

Find your closest bitcoin atm. But their sell price will be higher than the market value of course.

virwox paypal died :(

watch the exchange rates on the popular bitcoin news sites. DONT pay too much / get scammed by scumbags on localbitcoins etc. that being said, buying with credit card involves taking a picture of yourself with your ID which is annoying, and buying from "local" traders means sending a western union to some random shmuck who could be located anywhere on planet earth.
