Use coinbase (https://www.coinbase.com/) to transfer money from your bank to the amount, covering delivery and additional cost to cover transfer fees, download electrum (https://electrum.org/#home) and set up a wallet. take note of the receiving address and keep for later. convert your cash in coinbase to btc, then send that btc amount to your receiving address of your electrum wallet taking into account the cost of fee from coinbase (it think its 1.5%).Once sent to your electrum wallet complete order then send the btc from electrum to the order address within 30min taking into account the small mining fee (you can increase the cost of mining fee for faster completion) then sit back and wait until the electrum to complete going from grey state to red, orange, yellow and green then sit back and relax.
***important note***important note***important note***important note***important note*** never send btc directly from coinbse, always send to electrum or the wallet of your choice.
I've just realized that as well. 5 days from transaction. this can only be them trying to profit as some sort of building society to hold the money for a certain time period using "theft" as an excuse to hold the money whilst they profit from it. corruption by manipulation. what would you recommend?
I'm currently setting up bitpanda as i type. They get up and running straight away with a live id verify, so that's all good. fee's seem a bit high. They charge to put money in by visa (1.5%) then charge you again to buy bitcoin. The charges weren't clear so i had to fund my wallet twice as the original amount wasn't enough. The only issue with that is that there is a minimum £25 deposit. I would prefer bank transfer but it says 3-5 days, which i can't wait right now. I'll do a small BT later at some oint to see how quick it is (it's free to use this method).
Hey mate if ur in the Uk you can use bitcoin atms Until you learn how to do btc wallet just use a paper wallet that btc atms spit out. You will need id mobile phone. Just don’t loose the paper wallet otherwise ur btc is gone. The paper wallet will have ur btc address use that to pay for whatever you want. If ur unsure find where the btc atms are they should have some sort of video ect that shows you exactly what to do.Hope it helps
