Seems like a great time to trade Bitcoin for Monero

It's still early days for crypto and most people really have no idea how bitcoin works or its limitations.

I’ve decided to trade in my 3.64 bitcoins for Monero. Feeling bitcoin being traceable will bring a downfall and Monero being completely anonymous I feel it will more than likely rise within the coming years. Not sure where to trade bitcoin for Monero. Any suggestions will be very appreciated.

How can I trade bitcoin for monero in a trustless manner?

I assume cross chain atomic transactions aren't possible, but is something possible without the need to trust a person or an exchange?

Worried about properly claiming cryptocurrency gains. Called the tax man and he has NO idea what I'm talking about. Could someone here help?

  1. When you trade 1 cryptocurrency for another, such as trading Bitcoin for Monero, do you:
    A) calculate capital gains and losses based off the USD value at the time of the trade? B) Calculate whether the trade when converted to USD was a capital gain or loss at the end of the year regardless of whether you are withdrawing the cryptocurrency or not? C) Calculate net capitcal gain/loss ONLY when you convert the cryptocurrency balance to USD
  2. When you collect dividends from a cryptocurrency in the FORM of a cryptocurrency (Such as collecting GAS from holding NEO), do you need to claim the value of the gas at the year end? Or only when you cash it out for USD?
  3. When you margin fund cryptocurrency (such as BTC at an APR of 5%) to gain MORE of the same cryptocurrency, is the interest gained treated as regular income or capital gains?
  4. Example covering many areas: Suppose I purchase 1 BTC in 2017 for 1000 USD. When I purchase this cryptocurrency, I am charged a 4% purchase fee, and lets assume 0.1% for transferring it to wallets, leaving me with 0.959 BTC. Using this 0.959 BTC, I spend 0.059 BTC on an amazon gift card of value 59 USD, put 0.1 BTC on lending using margin funding on Bitfinex at a rate of 10% ARR, and spend 0.8 BTC to purchase 1000 NEO when btc was worth 1500 USD. The NEO in the NEO wallet passively generates GAS, which has reached 200 GAS by the end of the year. At the end of the year, I am left with 0.11 BTC (value 20,000 USD/BTC), 1000 NEO (50 USD/NEO) and 200 GAS (30 USD/GAS). I convert 20 NEO to 1000 USD, 100 GAS to 3000 USD and 0.01 BTC to 200 USD which I deposit into my bank account. What would the appropriate tax calculation be to include this in my 2017-2018 return, and what documentation / format would be required in the event of an audit?

From the creators of LocalMonero: AgoraDesk! An unprecedented Local* (i.e. P2P OTC) exchange for trading not only Monero and Bitcoin but also physically settled XMR- and BTC-based option contracts! This is the first exchange of its kind. Trade XMR and BTC options as you'd trade XMR on LocalMonero!

Introducing AgoraDesk

We've been working on this one for quite some time now, but we're very excited to present you guys with AgoraDesk, which, in addition to being essentially an alternative LocalMonero front-end which adds Bitcoin to the platform, also happens to be the world's first P2P OTC cryptocurrency options exchange. With physical settlement, no less. And straight out of the gate we support both XMR- and BTC-based contracts.

Features

AgoraDesk's features include everything you expect from LocalMonero and more:
As can be noticed from our feature set, since we come from a Monero background, AgoraDesk inherits the same privacy bent as LocalMonero.

Why P2P OTC options?

Because until today one could only have access to these sorts of instruments if they went through tedious verification processes of the centralized exchanges. In addition, many countries/regions (even the US in some instances) are simply banned from accessing these instruments on most popular centralized exchanges. Since our platform is completely P2P and OTC (no standardized instruments), we can afford not to impose any such restrictions.

Leveraged Trading for All

Call options (i.e. the right to buy), for instance, can serve as an alternative to a leveraged long position upon the underlying asset. If you buy a call option for an underlying of $100 worth of BTC for a premium of $1 then you're in a position similar to a x100 leveraged long position. Initially, you only pay the $1 premium to the call option seller, and if the price increases x2 then you profit $99. Pay $1, get 100$. If the price drops, you simply let your call option expire, and your losses are limited to the premium you payed - $1.
Put options (i.e. the right to sell), likewise, can serve as alternatives to a leveraged short position.

Risk Hedging for All

In addition to "leveraged trading", calls and puts can be used to hedge yourself against price fluctuation risks if you happen to receive or make payments in BTC and/or XMR.
For example, you sell beautiful Monero-inspired art and receive payment in XMR. Every month you pay expenses in USD: rent, electricity, internet bills, food, and so on. Assume your monthly USD expenses are $1000. Under the current XMR price, you make enough per month to cover your expenses, but you are worried that a sudden drop in the price might affect your ability to pay at the end of the month. To guard against this, you simply buy a put option with an underlying of $1000 worth of XMR that expires at the end of the month. If the price goes up - you let the option expire, sell your XMR on the spot market and reap the profit. If the price goes down - you exercise the option and are able to cover your expenses despite the price going down.
These and many more advantages to be reaped from being able to trade options in a P2P OTC manner are now, for the first time in the cryptocurrency industry, available to the you.

What if the seller or buyer runs off? How does AgoraDesk guards against counterparty risk in option trades?

Through a special escrow and trade process. You can read more about it here.

What is the relationship between AgoraDesk and LocalMonero?

We've made a Venn diagram to illustrate the overlap in functionality.

So, what does this mean for LocalMonero, what if I don't care about trading Bitcoins or options?

Everything on LocalMonero will stay exactly as it is. If you don't care about BTC and/or options then you can keep using the platform exactly as you used it before. There will be no new complex extra buttons or other interface changes that shoehorn BTC and options into the LocalMonero experience.

How does my LocalMonero account relate to my AgoraDesk account? Is the XMR balance shared?

LocalMonero and AgoraDesk accounts are completely shared. You don't need to register on AgoraDesk if you have a LocalMonero account, just use the same login/pass on AgoraDesk to login and you'll see your balance, reputation, ads, trades and everything else will be visible within AgoraDesk.
The same is also true for any account that gets registered on AgoraDesk - the XMR balance, XMR ads, XMR trades and everything XMR related will be visible when you login to LocalMonero using the AgoraDesk login/pass.

If I create an ad on LocalMonero, will it be visibile to people searching for XMR ads on AgoraDesk?

Yes! Anyone browsing AgoraDesk searching for XMR ads will be able to see your ad and open a trade with you, and you will be able to undertake the trade exactly as you did before. For all intents and purposes it's as if the counterparty was replying to your ad on LocalMonero.

If I create a BTC or option ad on AgoraDesk, will it be visible on LocalMonero?

No. We wanted to keep the LocalMonero core functionality exactly as it is so as to not force unnecessary extra complexity on the people who just want to deal with Monero.

If I create an XMR ad on AgoraDesk, will it be visible on LocalMonero?

Yes! And any LocalMonero user would be able to open a trade with you, just like they would on AgoraDesk.

[WTS] first live "Silver for Under Spot" for MONERO ONLY sale.

I have ten .999 ounces availablle below spot, shipped. 5 2013 Maples, and 5 St Gaudens generics.
Here's the deal: You must be new to Monero, ( no extensive history over at monero,) and one to a customer. I'll sell the Maples for $1.00 under spot, shipped, and the generics at $2 under spot, shipped.
The price will be locked in as the kitco.com live silver price at the time you comment your intent to buy, or PM me same.
Monero has a new GUI wallet that is a snap to use.
You want the Monero 0.10.1 core version, as it has been tweaked to work with the new GUI. (When you see the daemon with bunches of all green lines at the bottom, you are synced, and ready to roll. Your GUI won't work until you get synced.)
Buy your coins by trading bitcoin for monero on Poloniex. The value of your XMR used to buy my silver will be the USDT price for XMR as posted on the right side of the Poloniex.com page.
Setting up the core daemon monerod and syncing with the network takes about a day. The monero blockchain is under 9 gigs right now. And playing with the GUI won't be too time consuming, it is very intuitive. PM me for any help.
As I realize that for most of you, setting all this up will take a day or so, don't worry that you will miss this. Once these ten coins are gone, I intend to do this repeatedly until Monero becomes a household word with silverbugs.
Thanks, and Happy New Year to almost every one of you.

Most profitable payout allocation

At first I was confused on how the allocation worked. I selected a 2 year Monero contract but I could select multiple coins. It seems as though it is most profitable to select Bitcoins as the payout method? I would like to get Monero at the end of the day so perhaps I just go with 100% Monero? Any good recommendations on a Bitcoin wallet? And trading Bitcoin for Monero?

From the creators of LocalMonero: AgoraDesk! An unprecedented Local* (i.e. P2P OTC) exchange for trading not only Monero and Bitcoin but also physically settled XMR- and BTC-based option contracts! This is the first exchange of its kind. Trade XMR and BTC options as you'd trade XMR on LocalMonero!

Introducing AgoraDesk

We've been working on this one for quite some time now, but we're very excited to present you guys with AgoraDesk, which, in addition to being essentially an alternative LocalMonero front-end which adds Bitcoin to the platform, also happens to be the world's first P2P OTC cryptocurrency options exchange. With physical settlement, no less. And straight out of the gate we support both XMR- and BTC-based contracts.

Features

AgoraDesk's features include everything you expect from LocalMonero and more:
As can be noticed from our feature set, since we come from a Monero background, AgoraDesk inherits the same privacy bent as LocalMonero.

Why P2P OTC options?

Because until today one could only have access to these sorts of instruments if they went through tedious verification processes of the centralized exchanges. In addition, many countries/regions (even the US in some instances) are simply banned from accessing these instruments on most popular centralized exchanges. Since our platform is completely P2P and OTC (no standardized instruments), we can afford not to impose any such restrictions.

Leveraged Trading for All

Call options (i.e. the right to buy), for instance, can serve as an alternative to a leveraged long position upon the underlying asset. If you buy a call option for an underlying of $100 worth of BTC for a premium of $1 then you're in a position similar to a x100 leveraged long position. Initially, you only pay the $1 premium to the call option seller, and if the price increases x2 then you profit $99. Pay $1, get 100$. If the price drops, you simply let your call option expire, and your losses are limited to the premium you payed - $1.
Put options (i.e. the right to sell), likewise, can serve as alternatives to a leveraged short position.

Risk Hedging for All

In addition to "leveraged trading", calls and puts can be used to hedge yourself against price fluctuation risks if you happen to receive or make payments in BTC and/or XMR.
For example, you sell beautiful Monero-inspired art and receive payment in XMR. Every month you pay expenses in USD: rent, electricity, internet bills, food, and so on. Assume your monthly USD expenses are $1000. Under the current XMR price, you make enough per month to cover your expenses, but you are worried that a sudden drop in the price might affect your ability to pay at the end of the month. To guard against this, you simply buy a put option with an underlying of $1000 worth of XMR that expires at the end of the month. If the price goes up - you let the option expire, sell your XMR on the spot market and reap the profit. If the price goes down - you exercise the option and are able to cover your expenses despite the price going down.
These and many more advantages to be reaped from being able to trade options in a P2P OTC manner are now, for the first time in the cryptocurrency industry, available to the you.

What if the seller or buyer runs off? How does AgoraDesk guards against counterparty risk in option trades?

Through a special escrow and trade process. You can read more about it here.

What is the relationship between AgoraDesk and LocalMonero?

We've made a Venn diagram to illustrate the overlap in functionality.

So, what does this mean for LocalMonero, what if I don't care about trading Bitcoins or options?

Everything on LocalMonero will stay exactly as it is. If you don't care about BTC and/or options then you can keep using the platform exactly as you used it before. There will be no new complex extra buttons or other interface changes that shoehorn BTC and options into the LocalMonero experience.

How does my LocalMonero account relate to my AgoraDesk account? Is the XMR balance shared?

LocalMonero and AgoraDesk accounts are completely shared. You don't need to register on AgoraDesk if you have a LocalMonero account, just use the same login/pass on AgoraDesk to login and you'll see your balance, reputation, ads, trades and everything else will be visible within AgoraDesk.
The same is also true for any account that gets registered on AgoraDesk - the XMR balance, XMR ads, XMR trades and everything XMR related will be visible when you login to LocalMonero using the AgoraDesk login/pass.

If I create an ad on LocalMonero, will it be visibile to people searching for XMR ads on AgoraDesk?

Yes! Anyone browsing AgoraDesk searching for XMR ads will be able to see your ad and open a trade with you, and you will be able to undertake the trade exactly as you did before. For all intents and purposes it's as if the counterparty was replying to your ad on LocalMonero.

If I create a BTC or option ad on AgoraDesk, will it be visible on LocalMonero?

No. We wanted to keep the LocalMonero core functionality exactly as it is so as to not force unnecessary extra complexity on the people who just want to deal with Monero.

If I create an XMR ad on AgoraDesk, will it be visible on LocalMonero?

Yes! And any LocalMonero user would be able to open a trade with you, just like they would on AgoraDesk.
