I currently own zero crypto currency.
Previously I have owned Bitcoin, Doge, Quark, Litecoin etc…
Im currently attempting to buy some BTC so that I can trade for Maidsafecoin.
What really aggrivates me about the crypto currency world is that BTC was designed for peer to peer trade and yet you cant buy, trade, sell or swap BTC or almost almost any other crypto unless you go through a third party. This really pisses me off for the obvious reasons…
Sure I know I can go to a site like localbitcoins.com but why would I want to pay an inflated price?
And I know I can sign up for USD/BTC market places like cex.io but seriously those places are such a pain in the ass. You have to send them all sorts of documentation and they make you jump through all these hoops, by the time you do that a week or two has gone by and the price has completely changed.
Then you have the issue with the USD/BTC marketplaces that you have no idea if they will even be around in a months time and if your money is secure or not. I signed up for Vault of Satoshi and made some trades with them about 6 months before they shut shop and they made me jump through multiple hoops just to confirm my details and deposit some money eventually it took about a month for it all to happen.
I am now signed up to cex.io but cannot even be bothered going through all of their crap to be able to deposit USD and then eventually buy BTC.
So, where am I going with this?
Secure, safe, peer to peer. The technology is here, so why can we not have a system where I can log into my online banking, transfer my fiat dollar funds to some sort of hands free, safe and secure network where I can easily trade, buy and sale crypto currency of any kind?
I envision a bittorrent style of desktop application where I can easily deposit, withdraw, buy, sell and trade all of my currencies with my crypto comrades.
