    Thinking about it, there wasn't a big scandal at the time so clearly not everybody's wallet had been emptied. They didn't disable the email confirmation option as that's how I found out about the transfers. One confirmation for a transfer of one coin and then a minute later, another confirmation for the transfer of the rest. I stupidly hadn't set up two step verification with the mobile as I didn't know much about that at the time and just assumed the email confirmation would have been enough. Anyway, I've put it behind me (and improved my security) and only remember how much the coins cost me rather than what they were worth when I lost them. I've just looked at the exchange rate now and seen that 267 coins will buy me a very decent house these days but back then, they would have bought me a fairly decent second hand car so not that bad.

    I use https://bitbargain.co.uk/. It's via UK bank transfer - the spread on spot price is a few % and there were some hoops to jump through to initially get registered but now I can generally get coins in my wallet in ~30 mins.

    Ok, use Localbitcoins (worldwide). Find a seller with a good reputation. Try buy with a small sum, if it feels safe go for a higher sum. LB is pretty safe and the sellers rep speaks for itself. The traders there can't afford scamming people since it will hurt their profile.

    Coinbase is fairly simple to use. Just register an account, save your card details and buy with debit/credit card.

    Use Kraken in Europe. It has lower fees than Coinbase.

    You can buy through coinmama as well, works well.

    Then you have the exchanges where you can deposit usd and exchange for btc. Good exchanges are: Poloniex, Bittrex, Bitfinex, Gdax, Kraken, Cex, Shapeshift and Changely. Shapeshift and Changely are integrated into Coinomi, a multiwallet you can use to trade within the wallet. For Asian users, Binance is recommended, Binance is a really good exchange.

    Ok good luck and a good advice is:
    Be a BIT patient. Your transaction will succeed

    I actually think ethereum is pretty neat for payment because it has zero fees and lightning speed. But that's just my experience

    All the best

    NOTHING has zero fee. Electrum is a software wallet and you can install it on your PC. You can store your BTC on electrum instead of storing those on a company's wallet (coinbase, coinmama etc).

    If you know how to set the right fee each moment, you can definitely safe a few USD from the fee by using electrum, because all these companies always add a huge fee (the customer pays the fee and they don't really care since they just want fast confirmations).

    Electrum is good yeah. I like mycelium too and use Coinomi for convenience (it's a multiwallet). Yup, keep your coins in a wallet. Trade on exchanges
