    thats insane... thats when you know an investment has gone dangerously mainstream... I hope Ethereum can handle that well. BTC makes me nervous with the amount oif people buying.

    Hi guys I'm also new to this venture and love to join along for the ride as you guys certainly know what you're talking about, however I hope I can get a few simple questions answer as this is relatively a new thing and not many ppl know about it so they can't really help me out, like I just joined CoinBase but being a Canadian they said I can't cash out in my currency, so my question is if I but ETH and decide to sell how do I do with with Coinbase being a Canadian?

    I am looking for the easiest way where I can join, add a payment method like CC or bank account and then just buy these coins, the two I'm eyeing is ETH and Zcash trusting the opinions of the ppl in this thread, can someone point me to the right direction being a Canadian? Thanks so kindly in advance.

    i don't use Coinbase anymore... I'll explain the method I use to buy bitcoin in which you can than use to buy your altcoin
    i goto localbitcoins.com and put the amount im looking to purchase than select cash deposit.. you can switch it Canadian currency and see a list of all the sellers that accept Canadian.. once you initiate the trade you goto the bank branch the seller accepts and make a cash deposit into the sellers checking account they'll provide. The teller will give you a receipt for transaction which you take a photo of and upload it back to the seller.. once confirmed your bitcoin is released to your localbitcoins wallet in literally 5 minutes tops. I know Coinbase can take up to 5 days to get your bitcoin .. again there's many methods to purchase bitcoin, this is just the one I prefer

    ok this is all solid and works for me in Costa Rica, only way I can buy is through localbtcs or a friend... but how do I buy ETH and other coins with Coinbase? Doesnt seem to let me and is basically the only wallet I use...

    Anybody used Wirex? They have an ATM card to wd BTC balance in $?

    im not 100% sure if costa rica is different with Coinbase.. I guess if you buy from localbitcoins you'll have your own wallet , just transfer the bitcoin from your lbc wallet To your Coinbase wallet than you can prob buy your eth

    No just bitcoin on localbitcoins .. check out www.jaxx.io that's the wallet I use, you can buy eth and 8 other altcoins directly off it

    This is just too much. all I want is some ZCash,lite, and Eth. I've got the cash. Sucks you can't just buy it. I mean you link a bank account to it, so why do you have to buy Bitcoin. I can easily see why so many people are skeptical...

    Www.changelly.com you can buy it with cash but the max I think is $50, that's why I don't use it.. there's prob some exchanges that let you buy with cash but I don't really use them.. most of them want all your information , social security # and shit , fuck that

    I read a little about tether which allows you to buy with USDT, which is supposed to be similar. Anyone know anything about this?

    I just recently opened an account on Poloniex, deposited BTC and began buying ETH, STEEM, and ZEC.

    Ive researched, and actually understand how to do it, but it's just too many steps and too much to keep up with. Like stated, it's easy to see why most are skeptical, or want no part of it, it sucks, bc I do believe there's a crap ton of money to be made. Wish davey worked where I did, lol, I'd pay a fee for someone else to handle it.

    here's a pretty cool site i just came across www.altpocket.io ... it tracks its users altcoins profits, showing you what & how much they purchased and where there currently at... They got a leaderboard and everything you can check out here https://altpocket.io/leaderboards
    if your looking for some crazy obscure alt coin to make a nice buck off of but not sure what to get, maybe follow the same steps that some of these cats are doing.. could be a helpful tool

    this dude right here has made a little over $2,000 since june 1st on his investments... he made a nice chunk off stratis.. read some people speculate it might reach $100 a coin by next june... check it out

    i cant fu-cking figure any of this stuff out. seems so complicated for me. i went to vegas about 2 months ago and my buddy cashed out some money from his sportsbook into bitcoins and he was joking about going to the atm and withdrawing the bitcoins for cash at 1200 a bitcoin when we all got back home it started its run and those 6or7 he had would have more then doubled.

    at some point some of these will be worthless there are too many out there for them all to be winners, the 1 i have read a little about is that ETH that seems like the one thats def gonna be a winner. i just wish it was more simple to buy and sell kinda like a stock market, christ i just do an etf with scottrade and im good to go. if you wanna follow a stock that is invested in bitcoins its GBTC and man the swings are WILD haha

    gl to everyone trading these things, its just over my head

    man i promise if i can do it, you can.

    1. open a coinbase acct
    2. buy eth or btc using any kind of debit or credit card (you have now purchased crypto currency!)

    depending on what you want to do, send to sportsbooks or keep in a wallet is the next thing you need to decide on. i assure you it is extremely simple.
