What are you sending to require $30 worth of fees?
My SwissBorg crypto holds referendums every few months, which requires ETH to vote (and they send bonus tokens for participating). Also, I bought some other crypto (VIT) w/ a smart contract, using all of my ETH, but in order to claim the tokens, I need more ETH to complete the transaction. $30 in ETH should hold me over for a year...
I'll check out Shakepay...thanks.

Shakepay for sure;
Thanks. Faster than I expected. Everything done in less than 24 hours. Exchange rate could've been better but willing to take the hit for convenience. Highly recommend shakepay.

Yeah.. just don't make too many trades on there lol. Just buy your btc and transfer it out, the trading fee is like 1.75% but it evens out because there is no deposit or withdrawal fees.

Shakepay now allows you to convert your funds to ETH directly in the app.
Love these guys. Just what Canada needed.

You know what is another name for HODLER? Bag holder. It may be a Gucci bag right now but hold log enough and it may just become a plastic bag. This whole crypto circus is coming to a close I feel.

For people in unstable countries, they should (if rich) open offshore brokerage accounts; if relatively poor they can buy silver coins or wire funds to family overseas.


What is the use of Bitcoin? Transactions are occuring way too slowly, and transaction costs are way too high. And because the price swings so wildly, no one is using Bitcoin as a currency (you know, to pay for stuff).

Looks like Venezuela found the new business that will save their country. PUMP IT UP
It certainly seems like 6 month later all the pumpers have crawled under a rock. This thread is dead. All craptos outside of Bitcoin full steam downward and Bitcoin trending the year lows.

Where all the bag HODL's be at? Anyone still holding onto this stuff?

Amazingly, it's still not too late to get out. A 50% loss is better than a 100% loss.

Holders should thank their lucky stars that it's taking so long to deflate. Plenty of opportunities to exit.

Man that Rentberry project is such a f*cking scam project.

Any hint of criticism or even negative discussion in their telegram channel where like 50% of the members are deleted/fake users, and they ban you and also report you as spam.

Lots of projects like this. Vechain comes to mind.

Great advice to tell people to sell low especially considering Bitcoin ETFs will probably be approved soon and the NYSE is building a crypto exchange.

But these Wall St finance people are stupid to put institutional money into crypto right?
