IF SOMEONE WON'T USE A MIDDLEMAN - CHANCES ARE THEY ARE A SCAMMER.

Middleman User Group:

The middleman user group exists to allow us to make trades safer and easier for all parties involved. These are not random users, but rather the most trusted members of the community. Included in that list would be myself (this account), @kej, @hyl and for sales under $150 @pvla and @Vittorio. We don't aim to make a profit from this service but rather to allow users to engage in transactions with greatly reduced risk to prevent scams. For one on one transactions, we generally don't have access to or touch the tracks. Instead, it functions on an escrow-style system where we instead hold money until the seller has released the songs.

One on one transactions:
For one on one transactions, there is almost always no fee for our middle-manning services, outside of whatever the additionally btc TX fees are for us, probably totaling less than 50 cents USD. The exception to this rule is for extremely high value trades, we may take a limited fee in that case, decided on a case by case basis. If you use a middleman which we STRONGLY recommend, you can be assured that you are trading without risk. Regardless of who somebody is or how trusted they are, we always hope that you will use a middleman if it is any amount of money that you would be unhappy to lose. We do accept tips for this service and that is the only way we receive compensation for our time.

Song Trades:
We do offer middleman services for song trades (where we still do not have access to songs if you don't want us to). As of right now, I'm the only middleman that does this, however I'll be writing a guide for the other ones shortly. Revealing exactly how this process works makes it easier to abuse for scammers, but it uses password-protected archives to signifigantly reduce the risk of scams or any other kind of foul play. Please contact me if you want more information.

Group buys:
Contact us for more info regarding group buys.

You can check the vouch threads to verify our legitimacy:


We ALWAYS recommend that you use a middleman if possible, regardless of who you are trading with, how trusted they are, or anything else. You never know when someone might choose to scam and "Cash in" on a good reputation they have built, and we would rather not see any users scammed. Please contact us if you need us to middleman a transaction.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: THE MAJORITY OF TRANSACTIONS OPERATE ON AN ESCROW-STYLE SYSTEM WHERE WE NEVER HAVE ACCESS TO THE TRACKS, NEVER TOUCH THE TRACKS, ETC. THE EXCEPTION TO THIS IS IF THE BUYER REQUESTS US TO VERIFY TRACKS BEFOREHAND. A SIMPLE EXPLANATION - BUYER SENDS US MONEY, SELLER SENDS SONGS IN A PRIVATE MESSAGE ON FORUMS SEPERATE FROM THE MIDDLEMAN CONVERSATION - WE RELEASE MONEY TO THE SELLER AFTER THE BUYER CONFIRMS HE HAS THE SONG(S). WE ASK THAT EVERYTHING DOES GO THROUGH THE FORUM PM'S RATHER THAN DISCORD/EMAIL/WHATEVER ELSE BECAUSE WE'VE HAD FORGED SCREENSHOTS BEFORE WHERE PEOPLE PRETEND THEY HAVE SENT SONGS AND HAVEN'T ETC. DOING IT ON SITE ALLOWS YOU TO REPORT A DM WHICH ALLOWS US TO VIEW SPECIFICALLY THE DM REPORTED, AND NOTHING ELSE. IT'S TO MAKE THINGS MORE SECURE FOR BOTH PARTIES. WE HAVE NO ACCESS TO DM'S OTHERWISE (NOR DO WE WANT TO COMPROMISE OUR SECURITY JUST TO READ ABOUT YOUR LIL MOSEY TRADES).
