About localbutcoin exchanger.

Featured Comment

One of the most popular peer exchange sites in the bitcoin ecosystem is currently LocalBitcoins. But this platform, based in Finland, has been the epicenter of multiple controversies.

LocalBitcoins has made quite questioned decisions in recent months, such as the withdrawal of the option of personal exchanges for cash, without prior notice; or the constant increase in the requirements of personal information to its users in order to satisfy the regulatory requirements in the Finnish jurisdiction.

Particularly, the controversy became stronger weeks ago, when the platform froze the accounts of its customers without prior warning and providing little or no response. The event covered more than a dozen countries, including two Latinos: Panama and Puerto Rico.

LocalBitcoins is one of the most popular sites for the exchange of bitcoin between peers, although it is not the only option to perform this type of operations. The activity on the site has recently declined and its exchange volumes have been reduced considerably.

They're pretty much done at this point, I loved this service, was buying exclusively there, but since the implementation of verification that defeats the purpose of this service many people just pulled the plug!

Many people complain on Twitter about how arrogant support is, how many disputes were resolved in the favor of a scammer, preposterous!

There's a tremendous alternative: LocalCryptos.com, lots of big players from LocalBitcoins went there and imported their reputation!

Three cryptos are available there, well, now just BTC and ETH, soon they'll add a Litecoin!

I believe Localbitcoins is much better and safe place instead of exchanges for fiat trades as they have good and quick support and we can do this all very instantly but on exchanges mostly you have to wait for withdrawals and need to check limits for all your sell and buy options just try to catch good trader on localbitcoins is much better and safe for any one
