    Coinbase monitors and scrutinized every transaction. If they believe any transaction is shady they will close your account. I wouldnít ever use coinbase as a wallets only an exchange and then move your coins to a secure wallet

    Buy your coins from coinbase. Move it from m your coinbase wallet to a secure wallet before paying your bills. You can move money from coinbase with GDAX there the sane but less fees to blockchain

    Of course, you never pay your bills directly from coinbase. Tumble that shit out - lol

    Sure you don't wanna invest a couple of hundo into BTC right now?! Ha ha

    well i need it and i've set up another account.

    i don't use if for much, but it's important. last time i use bitcoin for ADC. anybody know much about IHP? pretty sure i'm just gonna stick with ALIN and AR. it's all the dope heads' fault for shining a light on all this stuff here in the U.S. stuff is being scrutinized to the max. i foresee a drought. how am i going to live out my dreams? lol just kidding... but seriously. I'm worried that transactions with ALIN will cause this too. the World hates bit coin because it's a truly free market. and that is bad for the rich. i don't know much about it though. i know i hate taxes, regulations, and governments telling me how to live me life and controlling my money. sorry for being negative bros. i'm still steaming over this.

    ok why is blockchain better? i actually did end up opening a block chain account. i heard is wasn't as safe though. it think i see what you are saying. move to coinbase and then from coinbase move to blockchain?

    Yes block chain doesn't react to every transaction like coin base

    Yes I agree the atm is nice. I have one here and I can just dump the front nds into my blockchain wallets or I can go straight to binance itís nice not depending on coinbase

    Much like with any bubble, it will most likely rebound to a level higher than itís final tank. That said, the glory days are pretty much over.

    After trying to find a thread with the info im looking for without success, this seems to be the place to ask. Im new so be gentle lmfao.

    Ok so heres the deal ive been researching the past couple weeks on purchasing with bitcoin ive always just used WU to buy anything offline. Mostly what caught me was the banners always saying 20-25% off orders so figured wth ill give it a try.

    That being said from what I can gather bitcoin was amazing when it first came out because of the anonymous side of being able to buy sell and trade and it not tying you directly say like now days when you go to open an account they want a photo of your ID and or Passport. Im not really comfortable with that with a non private purchase let alone a daily purchase. So I guess my question is if your using a newer version of a company like coinbase do you still use your ID to set up your accounts or do you just say fuck it and use WU which still in its self is completely fool proof...?

    In a perfect world itd be so much easier to have someone you trust you could send cash or whatever funds possible and not have to worry about it. Im not asking for sources I know given time hopefully one will pop up.

    I also dont have access to a bitcoin atm near me thats handy as well, trust me ive looked. Im hoping this helps anyone who may know what the best option would be. I could find shit on the net for this specific question and noticed you all are using it for what im looking for. Thank you if I left anything out I apologize.

    If your going to use coinbase link your cc instead of bank account. They wonít make you supply id unless you need more then 750 ew of coin. Never use coinbase to pay your bills though. After you purchase the coin move it to blockchain and pay your bills from blockchain

    bitcoin account shutdown notification

    If you decide to link a bank account I suggest opening a secondary account to use just for coinbase. That way you can move money in and out without ever worrying about your main account being compromised. If you go that way then remember that Gdax is coinbase. You log in with your coinbase account and password. Use gdax to move your coin to blockchain cause it charges less fees. Itís a workaround

    See everytime I try to purchase with coinbase using my credit card they ask me for a drivers license pic or my passport id before I can even purchase any amount of bitcoin! From what ive read its a new feature almost all bitcoin institutions are going to now to comply with government tracking, From buying and selling. Apparently thats why everyones accounts are getting shutdown now. Have you used coinbase lately and or is your account linked to an ID? I do understand what your saying tho im just really not sure I wanna put my face with the payment beings its easy enough to track as is!

    Any ideas?

    I know you cant post source here so I wont but I was just looking to buy enough for 1 12wk run im not hardcore by any means! Im a less is more kinda guy! It takes fast lol. So 3 bottles of test e or c with dbol came out to like 180 with shipping overseas of course so I was just looking for 200$ so I tried 180$ at first needed id so then I tried 100$ needed id then 50$ needed id. But thatd defeat the purpose for me since if I cant purchase in full id be wasting time and money trying to find multiple send methods. Shit fucking sucks lol. I havent ran anything for about 8-9 months looking to get back on track, work, wife wanting kids lost that drive. Now im getting serious again. So trying to find a source I can buy smaller orders from is tough enough and my buddys “friend” source is an asshole who thinks his shit is gold! Im not about to spend 80$ a bottle for homebrew test and 3$ a pill for dbol. I like my anus intact ��

    So once your purchase is made from coinbase which had your id, you move the coin to bookchain wallet, then make your purchase? Im just curious how the coin at that point still wouldnt have your id attached to it. Wouldnt it Still have your id and info attached? Ive never used bitcoin so im only asking because id rather know before hand

    Correct blockchain doesnít require Iíd just email address. Move your coin from coinbase to blockchain. Better yet if you have used your Iíd then log into Gdax with your coinbase user name and password. Then transfer to blockchain. It wonít charge as high of fees to move it

    I just opened a wallet on blockchain... can I not just buy bitcoins for my wallet through them? Why would I want to buy them from another site and the use another site to transfer them?

    Blockchain is a secure wallet not an exchange. You have to buy your bitcoins from an exchange and move them to your secure wallet. Coinbase is an exchange that heavily watches all your transaction. If you try to pay your bills through them they will close your account. Blockchain doesnít watch like coming base since they are just a wallet

    Coinbase seems like a joke... was in the process of making an account and got to the point where you add a phone number. I put in my number and got the code, minimized the web tab I was on to go to my messages to get the code and when I reopened the tab it kicked me back to the screen where you add a phone number. I enter my number and it says that number is already linked and won’t let me go anywhere but that screen. Even when I log out and log back in.


    Just tried to make an account on coinmama and they do not offer there services for my location?? Wtf I thought that was the whole point of Bitcoin was to be a currency that can be used anywhere in the world
