You could start by posting every question you have here in this thread  :) you'll have plenty of people helping you out. What do you want to know about buying BitShares? How to do it? What services to use?

Well, not all day, it was down while we were tied up in Monday design meeting (bitshares client got confused and needed to be re-indexed), but it's back up now.

I've been waiting for quite some time for my bitshares client to sync with the network... how long should I expect to wait for this to happen? I don't think my registered account will be, well, usable until that happens so I can't convert BTC to BTS. Thanks everyone.

thanks for all the comments guys. I decided to re read the bitshares 101 and watch the videos a few times. So this is where im at, i need to buy bitcoins first and ive never done that before. I understand to do my first transaction with a small amount. So from what i understand i need to find a exchange that accepts australia $ ( im in Aussie ). So could someone recommend a site i go to to set up a bitcoin account please.

There was just an announcement today that you can buy bitUSD on CCEDK with a wire transfer.  The best bang for your buck would be to open up an account there.  Wire them USD. buy bitUSD.  Then sell the bitUSD on the bitshares exchange for bts.  I think you would stand to make 5-10% on your money right away.

You could try localbitcoins.com for starters if you want to stay off the grid, i.e. avoid having to register with an exchange and connect/link your bank account info.

Otherwise just go with coinbase or something, lots of BTC exchanges out there.

just to be clear guys,  i need to buy bitcoin before i can buy bitassets or bitshares right? is it right in saying theres no way i can go and buy directly from my debit/credit card or bank transfer.
