Sell bitcoins

Shawn Butchart

Cancoin facilitates Peer-to-Peer (P2P) bitcoin exchanges between users in the Cancoin Marketplace. When you sell bitcoins with Cancoin you are selling to another user, with a publicly viewable profile and exchange history. Cancoin never receives any form of fiat payment during exchanges, instead providing a multi-signature bitcoin escrow service, and intuitive, user friendly order process for its users.

Selling bitcoins in the Marketplace is simple. Login or signup and navigate to the Marketplace. Find a listing with a price, payment type and location / currency that you find suitable. Take a look at the buyer's profile to see information and reviews about their previous exchanges. Input the amount of bitcoin you want to sell and click 'Create Order'.

Once you have created an order, a unique multi-signature escrow wallet is generated, and the new sell order will appear in the 'Your Orders' section. 

Follow the steps displayed during the order process to continue and buy bitcoins. Sold bitcoins will be sent from the escrow wallet to the buyer's Cancoin multi-sig wallet at the end of the order, and you will receive payment directly from the buyer.

Alternatively, if you do not find a suitable price or payment type you can create a new Sell Listing to set your own price and payment type, and have other users buy bitcoins from you.
