    Bit coins and BlockChain

    Can they make this stuff more fucking confusing? It's easy they say, no hassle they say, fuck them. I would rather debug a computer than figure this shit out. UGH!!!!!! Can you guess what I have been trying to do for the last couple of hours!

    I've used BC recently to buy gear and paid 15% in fees on top of total. That's insane.

    Already have some profitable accounts so it wasn’t a pain for me. But yea, if you are setting up accounts to make a purchase.....good luck.

    Why? Buy ether or another crypto and then exchange it to bitcoin for less fees

    We'll see how this all plays out. BTC at almost 20k is a straight up joke. . . Yet some cashed in. I'd just hate being on the neg end of that.

    Will look into that. Seems like 10 bucks at MoneyGram is easier with a trusted source.

    back in 2013 or so I bought 10 bit coin from a guy off craigslist ,, met him and gave him like $800 cash and he transferred the bitcoin into my bitcoin wallet that I had set up with an online deep web account . well 6 months later that online company and my account completely vanished.
    my 10 bitcoin is worth about $150,000.00 right about now.
    lot of people who made money off bitcoin were online thieves and scammers

    Make sure you don't use blackwallet. People are having their funds drained. Several hacks have occurred this past year on various wallets.

    I found that some sites are now accepting bitcoins as payment. I bought some coins and was planning to purchase a set of rockstar rims over the net. Do you guys thinks its a wise and safe decision?

    There are ways around it. If you have your altcoins in binance then trade say your tron coin for bitcoin. As long as you have funds in Bnb binisnce will let you use bnb to take care of the transfer fee at 50 percent less when you move those bitcoins to wherever you want

    Oh I know every other coin is cheaper than BTC to transfer, they need lightning network yesterday or they're gonna be screwed.

    Still if you have your coins in binance use bnb to pay for the transfer fee and itís reduced 50 percent. It wonít be long and more will be accepting other coins as trading them is really simple

    I can't use western union or money gram any more. I guess government found out I was buying gear from China. Yep, they just cut me off. I had explain every purchase to WU and Walmat! F them! I found a source that takes bitcoin. China no longer allows bitcoins so I have to pay a 10% premium. Also, the exchange rate between US$ and China$ adds more to the transfer. Overall, a few extra bucks for keeping the government out of my business. Well worth it.
