    • ##check## High rates in Pakistan
      • Note that the servies that are available in Pakistan to trade Bitcoins offer it at a very high rate due to their monopoly. As more people get to know about Bitcoins in Pakistan and more companies would be opened here, the rates would be competitive as with everywhere around the globe on popular platforms.

#1 UrduBit

UrduBit is one of the first platforms that offer Bitcoin trading in Pakitan. The company was featured on ProPakistani, that is one of the most popular technology blog's in Pakistan. The company got started back in 2009 where it faced lack of attention early on, knowing how Bitcoin wasn't a well known phenomena back then.

When the rates of Bitcoin started to rise supernaturally in the recent past, it soon became news stories all around and its awareness in Pakistan is gradually increasing too.

To buy BitCoins from UrduBit, follow the procedure as below.

      • You'd need to verify your account by providing the company with your document scanned copies. Simply take a picture of your ID card, and then you holding your ID card in your hand. Apart from these two pictures, you need a picture of your home bill as a proof of address.

        Once you have them, click the alert that shows up in your dashboard the moment you login. Once you have submitted the documents, your account status would look something like in the picture below, as 'pending' until they approve it.

 #2 Localbitcoins

Localbitcoins is another website that connect buyers with sellers. It also offers a Bitcoin wallet that comes along with when you create an account.

With localbitcoins, the idea is to contact a seller directly on the website. Let's say you choose the top most seller that is currently offering the lowest rate on the platform. Click 'Buy' and then you'll be taken to the trade page, where you first send 'trade request' to the seller.

Once you've sent that, the seller gets a notifcation from you that you're up for the deal. He would then message you in the chat box as shown in the images below.

Checkout the image below of one of the deals I did on this platform.

There are various modes of Payment on this website like as below:

The deal that I did, I paid the seller via online bank transfer and then contacted him that the payment has been made. He then released bitcons accordinly into my localbitcoins built-in wallet.

      • Kindly make sure that you know that trading Bitcoins is not legal and isn't recognized by the goverment of Pakistan, as its a common medium for money laundering and FBR is cracking down on it. You could proceed at your own risk and considering your country's rules and laws.
