Bitcoin and other crypto currencies may not be listed

Bitcoin has taken the hearts of many an investor (and drug dealer) and if you have enough of them, Elon Musk will take you for a ride in his rocket ship.
We think it’s a pretty cool idea but it’s not without risk or controversy so we’ve had a think and have had to put in place some pretty tough conditions on the listing of digital currencies such as Bitcoin on the site.
You cannot list:
- Bitcoins or other digital currency
- Offers of the service to mine coins
- Digital or paper wallets
- Payment terminals for digital currency
The restriction on the sale of digital currency or the offering to mine them is due to concerns about people getting a fair deal.
You can list:
- The rigs or devices which mine Bitcoins or similar electronic currencies
Trade Me feels there is less risk involved with these devices so are comfortable with their sale.
