I can arbitrage with btc/cdn/rmb. Getting a good supply of btc is harder then it looks. Wire transfers are too long.

Isn't it just easier to go to Waves bitcoin atm and put in some cash and get some bitcoins, transfer them to your wallet? or am I missing something here? Are there huge fees?

There is nothing stopping you from doing that, except if your whole interest in trading is to take advantage of arbitrage between exchanges in which case buying in at the most inflated price of any exchange out there is going to make that awfully hard...

Everybody is abuzz as the largest transaction ever recorded was just done, approximately 200,000 bit coins valued at over $700 each at this point = over $140 MILLION in one shot.

https://blockchain.info/tx/1746d7d24...d0aaca7b208ca9

This is the tree chart... keep clicking the orange ones to see where the money went to:

https://blockchain.info/tree/98329348

Some theorize it might be Richard Branson… the transfer originated in the UK and Virgin just announced they will accept Bitcoins for their new space travel program along with Branson publicly supporting Bitcoin investment… you can’t make this stuff up!

Did you use the exact instructions from the btc-e deposit tab?

Says min deposit is $2000 now.

What was the fee that was charged? (Your bank and btc-e's bank)?

Seems like getting money onto BTC-E is hard.

They changed the minimum from $500 to $2000 on Wednesday, right after I sent $1000. It also says 1% fee, minimum of $20, but they stole an extra $10 from me and credited $970usd to my account. It's there and I can trade with it, however, I still cannot withdraw it despite repeated attempts to communicate and having provided them with all documents they request. It's a well documented and extremely frustrating problem. At this point, we are ruling BTC-E out of our experiment and are looking into other alternatives.

Agree, I have signed up for Cavirtex as well, the only problem with Cavirtex is their volume is very limited... we are trying to buy between 75 and 100 BTC per transaction and there isn't really sufficient volume to do so on Cavirtex.

Signed up for Cavirtex today. Anyone have any issues with lvl 2 verification?

Looking @ their fees, it rather high compared to other exchanges. Is it much of a difference just going to Waves and buying there compared to Cavirtex.

Btc-e seems to have the best rates but reading comments about how difficult to get funds to and from that exchange is making me stay away.

There's almost no way I've seen to just purchase LTC directly every way I've seen (which is accessible Canadians and not a sketchy Russian exchange) is buying BTC trading for LTC

Easiest way I'm sure is that waves ATM

There is a HUGE difference. On Sunday the rate to buy at the ATM was $915CDN vs $825 on Cavirtex.

I would be really interested in knowing if that ATM does more taking money in or giving money out on average.

how long is the lineup at the atm?
I read it took in 100k in the first week. So if you had purchased at $200 when the machine went in you could go back today and it would spit out $8-900? What are the fee's associated with the atm?

Looking at what lowside said, looks to be 10% above market price.

Not on the sell side.

On Sunday it sold bit coins at $915 CDN and bought them at $805... at that point you were getting about 8% under market...
