    The transaction fees will still exist if sold to you in person.

    Use gdax. When used correctly, no transaction fees

    How do you sell BTC face to face anyway?!

    If its not confimed on blockchain then it didnt happen.
    If its confirmed then you are paying a fee. (assuming you want it confirmed anytime this decade)

    well one way to avoid transaction fees face to face is to sell with hardware wallett included i.e. no movement of BTC actually occurs. It is very risky though unless the new owner of the hardware wallet is completely sure the old user cannot regain access.

    But there never is any "actual BTC", all there ever is is a ledger of transactions.

    Even giving someone a hardware wallet isnt enough, they can restore their wallet on another device, transfer the money and you are left with a nice empty wallet as soon as you sync it.
