The exchange can be either automatic or manual, but keep in mind that every exchange is built on the same principle: you specify that you are selling bitcoins, choose the currency you want to get and confirm the payment.

Let’s see in simple terms the 3 most common conversion options:

  1. One of the most important and used pages among users is LocalBitcoins. It is a trading page that people use to buy (named depositing) and sell (named withdrawing) only Bitcoins and then convert it to Paypal, currency…

    In this site one must register and find the offer that suits you since the different members listed by reputation and also the exchange rate they offer as well as the minimum and maximum amount they are willing to exchange. The use of the platform is very simple, only choose one, to the seller or buyer, as the case may be, agree on how much one thinks to buy or sell and in case one wants to buy Bitcoins, it must be deposited to a bank account that is determined by the seller and send the photocopy of the deposit voucher; once this is done, the system automatically releases the amount of Bitcoins requested to the account we previously registered. It is a safe transaction since the site acts as mediator between both parties and the commission charged is minimal.

  2. The “HalCash” option is used in several countries. It offers you the possibility of sending bitcoins to a buyer upon payment in your currency. This banking service allows you for example buy bitcoins in your currency by sending money from your bank to your mobile phone. The code and password received along with your mobile phone number will be given to the bitcoins vendor so that he can withdraw it from the cashier and release the bitcoins. In order to perform this transaction you only need a bank teller connected to your halCash network.
  3. There are also apps that buy / sell bitcoins, although the commission is high, around 5 or 10% for the change

An example is Bit2me that allows you to convert bitcoins to Euros and then withdrawn them in a network of 10 thousand ATMs in Spain without having to register and only with a couple of text messages.

The system works as follows: the application is installed on the mobile phone and you are entered the amount of Euros you want to buy. By means of SMS message, the user receives a message with a code telling him how much bitcoins he has to pay for the euros and to which address he should send them. Once the transaction is completed, a new SMS message gives you a password to withdraw the cash.
