It looks like Kraken has the best BTC price for Canadians, then QuadrigaCX, Coinsquare looks slick but uber expensive.

Coinbase is the cheapest and easiest and I got $1000 weekly limit, but 4% makes it slightly more expensive than QuadrigaCX, not being able to sell quickly kills the deal too, transferring to other wallets is costly.

Kraken takes a wire to a Japanese bank, it can take 12 days, Quadrigacx is instant with Interac Online but one has to ask banks for an older debit card that doesn't have a Viza/MC logo. With BTC growing everyday, timing is crucial to catch that high ride.
Kraken probably has Interac too, I haven't unlocked all verifications yet.

Personally, I like Quadriga. I find their UI way less confusing, faster and intuitive, and they offer more depositing options. For withdrawing cash I'm not sure. I haven't used either.

If one already had BTC, how do you access your bitcoin gold that got forked recently?

Bitcoin Gold is forked on October 25, and it's unknown which exchanges are participating.

also another free coin in november Bitcoin2x. a corporate attempt to try and centalize bitcoin for the suits and miners.

imo just hodl your bitcoins and think of these forks(free coins) as dividends.

From what I read only one of these forks can survive since there is no replay protection in B2X, is that incorrect?

nobody knows for sure yet. there is alot of pressure for replay protection to be added from the consensus so we'll have to wait and see.

We just cant have anything done the easy way in Canada can we?
It would just be too complicated to be able to give a debit card number and have the funds transfered directly to your bank account and vice versa... so UnCanadian.
