It appears that widespread ICOs scam has been taking its toll on Etherium in particular. They seem to be eerily similar to a ponzi scheme with many youtubers pumping the ones they got into.

Bitcoin is facing uncertainty until Aug 1st. Ether is getting constantly dumped by all the ICO scammers cashing out. I'll be looking to buy soon, i think we have a bit more to go.

Ethereum below 200 dollars is that possible?
I'm not sure if now is the right time to buy.

I have to admit, I'm buying ETH but I really don't know what I'm doing. I feel like how I did, when i first started swing-trading back in 2008 during the financial crisis. Smiling Face With Sunglasses

Nice to see some RFDer's in the crypto scene. Been in Eth Since Febraury and have hodl through this whole boom bust cycle. Definitely been a helluva ride!! Watching your net worth Gain (and then lose) twice your yearly salary is crazy.

Hoping for the next rocket to the moon after the whole Aug 1 Segwit/BU drama.

Signed up for Kraken and waiting for Tier 2 verification. Sounds like this may take a few days or maybe longer according to https://support.kraken.com/hc/en-us/art ... -verified-

I am looking to invest just 1k or 2k to start, then maybe more. I've read some of this thread and seems there is not one place which is best to buy. What crypto currency exchange will give me quick verification with minimal-moderate purchase fees? Looking to purchase this weekend while it is below 200 USD.

Edit: Verified Tier 2 on Kraken completed but it seems I need to be Tier 3 to deposit CAD. On coinbase I verified my CC but I cannot get it to ready my ID no matter what, uploaded via laptop webcam in browser, downloaded the app and tried my drivers license & passport, photo looks crystal clear but it always spits out saying it can't read the back.

Did not have any issue with coinbase verification through android app. Bought Bitcoin, transfered to Kraken, traded Bitcoin to Ripple. Last step is wait weeks, months, years and cash out the profits, or lose everything. Since i don't really understand or care about cryptocurrencies, I put money there just like if it was Casino.. in mind that money is already lost. If I gain a lot then fine

For CAD funding you won't find cheap AND quick verification.

However, coinsquare is good place to start for you and I would suggest you start getting verified on Quadrigacx. Coinsquares verification works on tiers. So something like. $30, $100, $300 i think you need to wait 1 day between each verification step and usually less then 24 hours. Fees and spreads are ok.

Log into your exchange and check your transaction history, it will have a permanent record of all your transactions.
