Buy the dip.
You're missing one word to complete one of the many memes from last year - it's "BTFD"

What's everyone using to buy bitcoin now that RBC blocked interac online at Quadrigacx.com?

How long does it take for shake pay to deposit e-transfer payments to your account?

I got an email from Kraken saying no more wire deposits to Japan next week, they will have new funding option for Canadians.

there are a few folks on RFD that are trading crypto options

Also, Bitmex allows leveraging (long and short) of alt coins too.

I've been using Luminus Financial credit union to fund / withdraw to Shakepay. Deposit / withdraw takes between a few hours to a day. Support is very responsive through the chat in their app. The only downside (to some) is the Interac transfer limits ($3,000 a day, $6,000 a week), but it's still a better proposition. Rates sre also better than Quadrigacx.

BTC and crypto in general are in downtrend but there are great projects for long term investments (PCL, PAI, NPXS, TRAC, LUX), and some tokens (like BNB and ONT) have been holding well, providing good low correlation and diversification.

Many might disagree with me, but the only coins right now that have a sustainable use case is BTC and ETH, frankly. BTC also moves the market, as its based on dominance and market cap growth, so I trade options / futures in crtpto to grow my stack of btc and eth. All of the others coins are just potential. If you are patient and want to invest in potential, my preference is to pick the leaders in their sector:

BAT - online advertising and browser product;

ZRX - decentralized exchange engine;

GNT - working shared computing;


Crypto is just another asset class, that can complement a comprehensive portfolio. Once institutional investors get in (and they will soon), this will grow further.

Good points. Do you suggest anything that is sold on the regular stock exchange that are developing this stuff? I am wary of the process of going through the crypto channels because I only see people putting money in and it takes a few days, no one has experience actually pulling their money out.
