    "LocalBitcoins is perhaps the best possible option for those wanting to make Bitcoin sales and purchases for cash. It allows for interested users to safely communicate and organise a meeting place to exchange the money and digital currency. While there is always risk involved in any kind of person-to-person exchange, LocalBitcoins tries to minimize this risk by allowing users the ability to communicate directly the buyers and sellers."

    "I have never dabbled in bitcoin but I always liked to. However, basing it off of a quick search of the reviews of this website. I would be very hesitant in using this solution because not only does the site look like it is meant for scams but the reviews indicate a scam as well."

    "I wanted to get into the online currency and had heard a lot about bitcoins but wasn't sure which online service was trustworthy with my financial data. I know, I know....everyone is doing it but I'm middle age and don't trust like I used to. That is what makes this site so great. It lists local places where I can buy bitcoins with cash. That along makes it a great site."
