Exchanges

Bitcoin currency exchanges work like banks. You deposit in the ‘fiat currencies’ (Pound Sterling for example) to your own account in the exchange. You then use these balances to trade with other users of the exchange and then you can withdraw. There is no risk of losing money due to people fulfilling their part of the deal as long as the exchange itself is not fraudulent.

Bear in mind the following security precautions:

  1. At this time, there is little in the way of law enforcement. No court has dealt directly with a significant theft of Bitcoins or determined Bitcoin’s legal status. Bitcoin users are for the most part, on their own.
  2. In lieu of legal action and lack of community trust outside the Bitcoin system itself, your reputation is the platform for building trust relationships with others in the community. Traders will take very little risk with new users who have not proven themselves (as one user can easily commit continuous fraud using many different identities).

Disclaimer: Please take considerable measures to research and understand Bitcoin exchanges before you make serious trades. Remember it is your responsibility to choose your exchange platform carefully and avoid pitfalls.
