Are any established trusted members interested in selling me some ( a few $k ) Bitcoin at the prevailing rate, subject to mutually satisfactory transaction arrangements?
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

regulated currencies are tied to actually events, and crypto currency is a complete illusion, therefore, it is not predictable

Not disagreeing, Dobrij.
I'm just looking to buy some.

Is there a reason you don't just want to use an exchange?

I actually think that btc is pretty good for gambling exactly. Near zero transaction costs and anonymity. No?

Actually the anonymity has limits. Although within the blockchain, there is no associated personal info, every transaction is logged on the blockchain and free for everyone to analyse. A bit like writing on the back of a dollar bill, a wallet address, every time it changes hands. With a minor effort, for example, any casino that has transacted BTC with you can trace the forward and backward flow of those BTC. ( They already know your identity) They could, for example see if you had signed up with multiple accounts, or accounts with sister sites, if the addresses ever get associated in the blockchain. Zod only knows what the 'authorities' might do to forensically analyse transactions.
