    Newbie question here.

    I got a bitcoin at bitstamp.net (Current price 1781$/btc)

    But I see other exchanges like bitfinex.com (Current price 1860$/btc)

    What if i transfer between them, will I make any profit or the fees are to high ?

    Thanks.

    Why don't you check how much are the fees and calculate it? Dam

    You used to be able to make a profit from arbitrage between exchanges, I'm not sure if you still can.

    This. And don't forget to factor in the btc transfer time for the fee you send.

    This is a bit of a "I'm too lazy to research" threads. Also, why did you buy and 'then' look at exchanges?

    Yes, you're right, I'm a bit lazy, I wanted to know if someone else was doing this and actually making a profit and I did not buy it, I received as a bday present.(Ya, was hard for me to believe too.)
