    Hi guys, I am working with somebody lately, and I used my friends paypal for transactions, since mine got limited.

    I want now to make an account somewhere, so that I can get my money directly, I mean without somebody in the middle (like my friend).

    I heard about bitcoin, what do you think ? Are they good ?

    Thanks

    Bitcoin sucks. The value of a coin is based on supply/demand. If you check Google trends you can see where traffic crashed (demand) and price followed. It got a little bump in traffic from being on a TV show last month, but otherwise bitcoin is dieing horse. If bitcoin is all you can use for your dealings, it'll work... just don't count on the value of the imaginary little bitcoins.

    Bitcoin isn't a real currency per say, it has no comparison to PayPal or Moneybookers where you actually have real money. You can't withdraw 20 bitcoins to your bank account.

    Some alternatives are Serve (USA only) or AlertPay for aggregate payment sites.
