Hi Sphex I signed up to Coinbase and used Electrum as my main wallet. I transferred money from my bank account to my Coinbase, then exchanged from sterling into BC within Coinbase. I then transferred my BC across into my electrum wallet to use as the main adress for sending with littlebiggy providers. If you plan to do this way don't miss out the last step, (don't send bitcoins from Coinbase itself, transfer to your personal wallet (Electrum) or else you can be banned from Coinbase), also, Coinbase takes 1.49% off the value transferred as well as a 0.10p mining fee. Its best to add £5/$5 extra to cover the charges. Good luck, it's easier than what it sounds, you'll be up and running in no time =)
Coinbase is easy to get started with but not sure if they are still limiting transactions. It took me a good year to establish & ensure a smooth flow of bitcoin & I use 2 different sites-one to "buy from" where I store my coin (for purchases on LB) and one to purchase bitcoin. I transfer the bitcoin to my "buy from" site.
I try to keep several hundred dollars in bitcoin at my disposal because you never know when they are going to change the rules and try to block (online) purchases.
a lot if trial & error and I lost, at first, some coin. Now I make a little cash in addition to having the coin to make a purchase on LB. Best case scenario is make a buy and bitcoin makes a nice gain and you can make your purchase off your increase.
Yeah def looks daunting at first but so simple once your setup. Don’t be afraid here my friend it’s all good, my advice is check feedback and how recent the last feedback was. Also try messaging the vendor before you order to check stock. Also just my advice and totally up to you but I stay away from international delivery eg. USA or Canada to uk as the penalties for getting busted are just not worth it for me. Hope you have fun, I certainly have!
Sorry to hijack post but I'm a newbie with stage 4 cancer. I'm not the most savvy when it comes to buying Bitcoin etc. Never done it before. So I'm looking for a simple as fuck way of payment.. Once I know who to get from. Cheers
the easyist way ive found is bitcoin atm's ( no trace) , set up coin acc on fone (pay & go), loads to look at; my fav is BRD. down load wallet and set up,goog search 'local bitcoin atm' most major towns have one; mines my local barber(new meaning to something for the weekend) :) feed in £'s (lots these days) THC tokens on ya fone. big smiles. keep up the fight.
Coinbase is pretty straightforward.. there’s a few articles up around here that gives advice how to start up.. try uk420 I think he has something on his page about it.. it’s a pain the 1st time but after that it’s pretty simple.. maybe try a YouTube video for help..? Anyways I hope you get sorted soon mate
