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!
