For small BTC purchases in the UK, https://localbitcoins.com/ (LocalBitcoins) is the only viable option right now that I know of. There are other methods, mostly involving bank transfer arrangements, but be very careful to figure out how much you end up paying in total fees for it. It doesn't make much of a difference with large BTC orders, but for small ...

QuickBitcoin (http://quickbitcoin.co.uk) accepts UK bank transfers for bitcoins. There are no fees, and transactions are very quick.

This all depends on what asset the IOU represents and by extension what it can be used for. If in the case of USD or EUR etc they are accepted for payment of goods or services by a third party who is not the issuer then they are e-money. In this case the issuer has to be either authorized or registered as an Electronic Money Institution (EMI). The key ...

Are you asking what option lets you withdraw from BitSTAMP? Across the top menu is Withdraw, and from there pick Bitcoin as the withdrawal method, which gives this link: https://www.bitstamp.net/account/withdraw/bitcoin/ Now if you are asking where to withdraw your coins to, then that's a different question. There is not just one answer because various ...

There are no exchanges yet that accept RON (Romanian Leu). There are individuals in Romania who trade bitcoins for face-to-face cash trade: https://localbitcoins.com/country/RO <-- But be careful of the listings who are not local, wanting to trade online instead. Also there is the #Bitcoin-otc marketplace and the #bitcoin-otc-eu IRC channel in which ...

In the EU AML regulations do not apply to currencies, they apply to financially registered entities and a couple of other ones. The entities required to ensure AML-compliance are : Banks, Payment Service Providers, Latin notaries (think about laundering money through real-estate transactions for example) Licensed currency exchangers, etc. Legally ...

I've made several purchases from bitelectronics.net. As a bonus, Mikko, they're based in your (and my) country!

Through websearch I have found e4btc.com. They seem to be based in Berlin. I do not have any further experience or information about their offers, nor am I affiliated to them in any way.

There is a website called Bitcoin Magnet that does exactly what you require. Check them out, they have good reviews. They convert a bank transfer containing your reference code into bitcoin (using Bitstamp) and send it automatically to your desired bitcoin address. You can therefore set up a standing order to buy on a regular basis. UK only.

You forget something. Who pays it then? I basically want to avoid the extra cost of transferring... That means that the people of the exchange have to transfer it for you and that means that they have to pay the fees because it's a default blockchain transaction and the miners want to be paid. And the exchange's owner does generally not want to donate ...

I suggest using a library for this. This is the one I use: link Code would then be: =CRYPTOFINANCE("COINMARKETCAP:ETH/USD", "price") The library explains itself rather well.

*You basically need to get money into E*Trades US back account.* E*Trade will either want a wire transfer (from Europe) or a bank transfer from the US. They have to be very careful about Anti Money Laundering. So wont want to accept money directly from a Bit-Coin Exchange. You can open a US account from your local EU bank. Your local bank will act as a ...

Bitstamp does not require a unique code in every SEPA deposit. They require the same code everytime you send euros. So you can setup a recurring payment to your account. Maybe the first time, when requesting the SEPA deposit, type in the comment that you will be making monthly deposits. Then write a program that checks the EUR balance daily and buys ...

One option is Bitstamp.net which is currently the exchange with the biggest trade volume world wide, operating out of UK. SEPA deposits valued in Euro are free and so is the withdrawal of Bitcoin. Deposits valued in USD and GBP have a minimal fee of 15$/15£ respectively. They charge up to 0.5% commission on trades, less if you trade more. I can't guarantee ...

Xapo allows you to do this. When buying bitcoins with them you get a unique code which has to be added to the SEPA transfer. Any funds received with that code are automatically converted to BTC and added to your wallet, indifferent of the amount or from what account it is coming from. Now I get to think of it I see a great opportunity for a service which ...

I prefer to use the Bitcoin comparison tool found at: http://cheapbitcoins.co.uk - you can get the best prices for in GBP, because most bitcoin exchanges are not based in the UK.

I have tried using BitBargain.co.uk - it is a cut above the Mt Gox price, but not as much so as QuickBitcoin. You'll likely get a better deal if you can find someone on LocalBitcoins though.

You can check out a list of exchanges that accept customers from Romania over here: https://bitcoinnews.ro/cumpara-bitcoin If I remember correctly there's one international exchange that accepts RON as well and that's LakeBTC. I haven't seen any reviews of it though so use with caution.
