How to Invest in Bitcoin

This a list of bitcoin exchanges recommended by me

URLs:      The Rock Currency Exchange, located in Italy         Paymium – The European exchange, located in France

These two exchanges are very good if you have to buy a small amount of bitcoins, otherwise it could be difficult if you have to buy  more then 25-50 bitcoins at once or even more.
Recently TheRockTrading improved its liquidity, now it’s possible to trade more then 100 btcs at once without a significant amount of order slippage.

Other exchanges not recommended by me but still used by the bitcoin community, probably because of high liquidity.

URLs:         Bitfinex – invest in the future, The platform is owned and operated by iFinex Inc., which is registered on the British Virgin Islands (BVI) – recently hacked thus ditched and not recommended.         Kraken – Sail the high seas of success, located in USA        ItBit – Bitcoin Trading Services Built for Financial Institutions and Active Traders         Bitstamp – buy and sell bitcoins, located in Slovenia
hacked in Jan 2015 thus ditched and not recommended.       BTCchina, located in Shanghai, Cina
Closed by China Gov                     BTC-e, i failed to discover physical address for this exchange. Their banking partner seems to be “Mayzus Financial Services Limited
website recently seized by FBI thus ditched and absolutely not recommended.

For large btc investment you can now use BIT, The Bitcoin Investment Trust, now listed at OTCC market, open-ended trust that is invested exclusively in bitcoin and derives its value solely from the price of bitcoin. It enables investors to gain exposure to the price movement of bitcoin without the challenges of buying, storing, and safekeeping bitcoins.

      1. This is no longer a good idea. You will never get USD out of mtgox. If you want to start with bitcoin, go to Then, if you want to trade with it, inject the bitcoins into BTC-E. You will soon realize the reason for the spread in prices of bitcoin is due to the various friction effects within and between exchanges. Gox? Can’t get money out. BTC-E? Hard to get USD in.

        Coinbase is good as long as you can wait a little while for them to verify your identity.

        I agree with you, i already removed mtgox as recommended exchange from my “how to invest in bitcoin” page.

      if you trust the broker, it’s not a bad idea.
      major profits? just because they give you a higher leverage but higher risks.

    Hello.. Enky
    Do you have more signals about other coins like eth xmr?
    To make some profit cause btc need lot of money to investment.
    And thanks for your good signals btc/usd

    1. Hi, this blog is btc oriented, occasionally i post some analysis about altcoins. Problem is that altcoins are smaller then btc therefore it’s harder to do a reliable forecast. I don’t think btc needs more money to invest, you can buy a fraction of a btc if money is an issue. Bye
