What is the most effective way to buy bitcoin from swiss francs?



The most effective way I could find so far was Mt.Gox. The costs that are involved are still quite prohibitive. But this then boils down to the question: what is the most effective way to get your money out of [Insert your Exchage here]-exchange.

Is there any better way to convert your currency? (Swiss Francs in my case)

1Voted to close as too localized. – ripper234 – 2012-03-11T13:24:30.723

2@ripper234: How is that too localized? Swiss francs are a major currency (and even if not, this question would be of interest to a not insignificant user group for any currency). – Thilo – 2012-03-12T12:10:28.307

@Thilo - because we have lots of similar questions, and it's not feasible to answer them all in a consistent manner. Also the answers will change with time, etc... don't won't to argue over it here though, it's just close vote, nothing major. – ripper234 – 2012-03-12T15:55:11.097



Switzerland takes part in the SEPA (Single Euro Payment Area); the Bitcoin exchanges that do SEPA transfers will probably be the ones with lowest costs for you.

I expect your bank will charge you for converting between CHF and EUR. If you want to convert often you may want to open a euro denominated account instead.

There is also BitStamp which lists CHF as a currency it will convert for trading (international wire).

See also the wiki page on selling bitcoins.
