    Thank You

    Are you saying that the Bitcoin market is down or that the only offers/bids that you are aware of are below the current market average?

    "Bitcoin plunges $200 after cyber attackers demand ransom using the digital currency..."

    Have you checked today ? - I believe that atm Bitcoin average are generally up 5% on the day.

    My favorite mixer is Bitcoin Fog, but they're only usable via Tor, and you need to create an account. They have at least a couple onion URLS. I've used foggeddriztrcar2.onion but their Twitter account says foggedddxlunnaaa.onion now. But be careful, because there are clones that rip you off. They've had problems occasionally, but they've always come through eventually, and I've never lost anything with them. Also good is Bitmixer.io or bitmixer2whesjgj.onion via Tor. No account is needed.

    Helix:

    grams7enufi7jmdl.onion/helix/light


    Never had any issue with these guys. The "light" link is for around 21 BTC or less. No account and turnaround is quick. If your "fair amount" (your term) is > 21 BTC you'll have to use their full account to perform a single transaction. However; note you can send 20 coins through and then send another 20 coins through later. Understand? I purposefully slow my transactions down and tumble out over a little more time to at least 5 accounts. A super speed tumbler is not always the best solution, but helix is very fast if you just run it unencumbered and don't mind firing coins out to up to 5 addresses in about 30 minutes or less. You will receive a "confirmation" signature to keep as a "stop gap" in case anything goes wrong during the transaction process. You MUST have this IF followup is needed. I have never needed it. Mirimir's suggestions are popular as well.

    Hawki,

    There is money to be made if you have the "stomach" for arbitrage. S Korea was 2200.00 last time I got involved. Arbitrage is buying say in the USA for 1850 and then selling in SK for 2150, etc........

    I guess the ransomware BTC "thing" didn't hurt the market after all. ~2400 USD or arbitrage in SK for just under 2800 USD. Getting crazy high!

    Yeah, that is some crazy stuff. Price has doubled since January. And volume has been high.
