    First stupid question (others sure to follow) ... BitQuick okay for vendor?

    My gear supplier is using the carrot and stick approach -- setting a high minimum for WU purchases and offering hefty incentives for crypto purchases -- so I think it's time for me to learn a thing or three about cryptocurrency. And further decisions -- which wallet(s) to use and the like -- will hinge on the source so I'm thinking the place to start is determining where I'll get the coins.

    So my first question is about using BitQuick as a vendor. It's not as tidy a transaction as buying from an ATM but there isn't a BitCoin ATM within 25 miles of where I live. However, there are two BitQuick dealers within walking distance of my house, and several more throughout the town.

    So before I get on to the other questions, does anyone have a beef with BitQuick? And if you have used BitQuick, do you have any tips?

    Probably better off using a high quality company by way of the Cash App to acquire bitcoin. Bitcoin ATMs are dinosaurs nobody uses any longer (large fees and hassle). LibertyX would be another option before gambling with unknown BitQuick.
    For android, best choice is Samourai wallet.

    Second stupid question.

    I do have an Android phone but I intend making the gear purchases from my PC. So can I transfer the bitcoin from the Samourai wallet to a PC wallet? And if so, howzit done?

    Great question! In the event you reach an agreement and receive a payment address via email on your PC, visit a qr code generator to copy and paste your suppliers bitcoin address. Had your coin be on your mobile wallet, you'd scan qr code from your computer and the wallet should pick up the address you intend to send coin to

    Thanks for the info. It's bewildering because the process is always involved and each different vendor/system uses an entirely different process. I need to bone up on this ... quickly.

    Same here, Beetlegeuse. Every time that I think I have it down pat, something changes. I just want to buy btc with say....a credit card, put in a wallet, and send it to the wallet where I am doing my transaction.

    I'm almost 55 and I still don't have the knack for this.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...
