Say I have 2 accounts and have coins on both of them, can I trade coins from one account to another?

I hope there will be real life Cartel Coin cash machines in my city. I plan to pay my rent with Cartel Coins.
In about a year Cartel Coins will be the only safe currency in the world...

OK, next question(s):

Can we give cartel coins to other players for a trade, thanks, whatever?

Can we give the items we buy with cartel coins to other players for a trade, thanks, whatever?

Can we trade cartel coins for credits?

Can we sell the stuff we buy with cartel coins on the GTN?

The answer to all those questions is "almost certainly not". This is because if you were allowed to do such things, it would open up avenues for scammers and other such opportunist money-for-ingame-credit websites..

They should allow Cartel Coin gits between guild mates. That way if you have a guild mate that you want to join in an op and he doesn't have that ability yet, you can gift him the coins needed to join in.

That is of course if they're selling things like Op joining and such through the Cartel Coin store.

you might be able to do with... if BW is smart they will let you buy the op access then select gift to friend so you can give what you purchased to a friend... probably not at the f2p launch but its one of those things what is pretty standard in online purchasing for instance steam and possibly wow for some items...not sure on wow but i felt like i could give some stuff i bought away...
