''' Unfortunately your location does matter for your exchange (where you buy/sell). Check out bitcoinCA for lots of great info. ShakePay is easy to use, quick to transfer funds to (can use regular Interac e-transfer up to your bank/card daily limit), and signup/verification is pretty fast/painless. Fees why buying/selling BTC can be a little high (1.25-2.25% depending on price volatility) but they charge no other fees - including free xfer to your wallet. Use my link and we will each get $10 when you buy your first $100 of BTC. Newton gets some good reviews as well and is supposed to have lower fees. The verification process with PLAID is a little disconcerting - would suggest avoiding until they implement their new process (supposedly coming soon). ATMs charge VERY high fees (sometimes over 10%) so would strongly suggest avoiding. Make sure you know how to use your wallet BEFORE you make any large purchases. Try some small tests, try restoring your wallet, and make HANDWRITTEN copies of your seed words (and PROTECT them!!!). Move your BTC off your exchange AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Consider and BTC not in your wallet as being at high risk of being lost. An exchange is NOT like a bank!! It may seem a little daunting but once your make a few transactions it is pretty straight forward and you will be ahead of 99% of people!! Shoot me a DM if you have any questions. Long live the queen!! 🇨🇦 ''' Context Link Go1dfish undelete link unreddit undelete link Author: TrueNorth49th
Hello Everyone, Early investor here who is appreciably frustrated by the mismanagement of this project. I won't get into the specifics of the past and would instead like to focus on the right here right now; I'm attempting to do a very detailed overview of the Zilliqa website and the changes I -- and I'm guessing most of the community -- would like to see (I'm basing this on the favourable response to my previous posts). The purpose of this exercise is to not only improve the website but more importantly highlight some of the ways in which Zilliqa needs to change its thinking, attitude, and general verbiage. Why should Zilliqa do this? Because I feel they are obliged to not only build a good product but also make Zilliqa pervasive, showcase the intents and efforts to do so, and as a result proliferate and increase usage/demand of the currency and in doing so, do right by the investors that financed the pursuit of Zilliqa team members' dreams. Also Zilliqa Team, if you don't have someone like me on your team picking apart every aspect of what you're doing or not doing, I suggest you get one. I get the sense the Zilliqa Team is a tight-knit group, so tight-knit that they're probably often afraid to disagree with one another, instead electing to give out A's for effort. As I'll point out later, that behaviour isn't ethical. The responsibility of Zilliqa Project Team (the ones who were not so cowardice to leave the project), is to build and sustain the advancement of this blockchain's use and popularity for the end goal of adoption and actual ZIL for goods and services use. The flash in the pan across 1 billion was nice but the fact remains this project SHOULD be top 10 by marketcap but right now we are simply getting outworked by other projects putting substantially more effort into business development, or the appearance thereof via marketing, communications, and overall more exciting community engagement, Without further preface , here are my early Zilliqa.com main page observations: Zilliqa.com Page:
Please stop being so polite; Zilliqa is not “Enterprise Ready” Zilliqa is “The #1 Enterprise Blockchain of Choice” or “The Best Enterprise & Developer Blockchain in existence”; please, modesty is NOT needed when it comes to educating about and marketing your product. I get the sense that the Zilliqa project is “anti-hype” and in some sense believes that to be an ethical or moral approach to conducting a business in the blockchain space -- BUT, I invite Zilliqa to look at this from another perspective. Investors are the ones who financed this project, and although “the vocal community” – i.e. Redditors, Telegramers, does not likely have angel fund investors in it, we still provided a large portion of our personal funds to make this project successful. Zilliqa’s ETHICAL and MORAL responsibility lies in appeasing the requests of investors who want to see the price of Zilliqa soar. That being said, it’s definitely also ethical and moral to have some measure of truth in your communications and claims but that DOES NOT equate to being unnecessarily vague or humble in your communications approach. Is Zilliqa not the best or one of the best blockchains of choice for enterprises and developers alike? If it isn’t then why do you have Xfers, Mindshare, Aqillz, HgExchange, and the like building on ZIL? The top spot deserves to be had by Zilliqa, but the team has to CLAIM it by PROCLAIMING it. Please, change the mentality from underselling to at least appropriately selling. Zilliqa is beyond ready, it’s one of if not the best blockchains of choice for developers and enterprises alike.
Under “Zilliqa at a Glance”
- Research brought to life: good - “Mainnet Live Since Early 2019”: Why does that matter? First to use sharding as a scaling solution – why do we care? What’s sharding? Is that what you tell enterprises who might want to use Zilliqa? We were the first to shard? How about we have the fastest, safe, distributed, verifiable ledger on the planet; which enables the development of the highest performance enterprise applications the world has ever seen. Speed, efficiency, irrefutability, all translating to better performance, data, and overall cost savings. Aqillz was created off the mindshare & pepsi co. pilot correct? So obviously, significant cost savings are not only possible but highly probable with a blockchain like Zilliqa to build on. - Sharding in Practice: Great. No one cares if Zilliqa scales linearly or exponentially; if it scales it scales. Tell me something I don’t know that makes it real for me. “Processing more transactions faster, safer, irrefutably, and at a lower cost than Visa or any payment processor in the world” - Safe by design contract language – What’s the point of smart contracts, really? Is it automation? Automation to what end? Is it a technical feat to behold? What does it enable? Efficiency? Cost Savings? Cutting out the middle man? Isn’t the middle man just a coder now? When you talk about your smart contract language, tell me why it really matters. Imagine a world where “………………”; you have to tell the enterprise, developer, or end user why they might care. - Eco-Friendly dual mining: I would change this to: ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY CRYPTOCURRENCY or AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE CRYPTOCURRENCY SOLUTION; SUSTAINABLE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY BITCOIN. This needs to be changed to sustainable in either event because eco-friendly is narrower in scope and doesn’t encapsulate what Zilliqa is actually trying to say here; technically, Bitcoin could even make the claim at this moment in time that it is eco-friendly; destroying or not destroying habitat isn’t the question here, sustainability through cradle-2-grave is the real concern. Bitcoin’s process isn’t environmentally sustainable, but it isn’t directly ecologically harmful. Please choose words specifically and purposefully. - Blossoming Ecosystem: I have a real gem in terms of marketing to share with Zilliqa here; it gets the point across of what a healthy ecosystem really means for commerce, business, and end users. I’d like for you to specifically inquire for more details on this.
Token Swap Deadline – Put this in a pop-up in one of the corners on the main page; don’t need a randomly placed section of this on the main page; looks unrefined.
Faces of Zilliqa – not a bad idea but it’s fair to say some serious expansion is required here. The amount of effort that has been put in is incredibly lackluster I would put substantially more effort into key players from strategic partner or “friendships”/collaborators as you term them. Again, not entirely sure why this is featured on the main page.
ZILHive – randomly on main page and selectable from the dropdown menu; just the dropdown menu would suffice. Simplicity is a better look on the main page; state only the most important and essential bits of information.
2 Million Transactions – again quite random and unrefined; could this not be moved under the Zilliqa News page?
Tianwei Liu – this is significant, but again, wouldn’t it be better placed under Ecosystem or “Faces of Zilliqa”?
Unstoppable Domains Video – cool; why is it on the main page?
Overall guys the website’s first page has some good content, I’m just not sure I understand the vision behind randomly jumbling it altogether. Was there any discussion on this at all? I realize you’re all knee deep in technical works but somebody within the Zilliqa Team has to be knit picky and critical of majorly important communication events like the launching of a website. BTW, probably the 10th time I’ve asked, where is Anquan in all of this? None of my questions have yet to be answered, where is the extraordinary support to the tune of $20 million Zilliqa is supposed to receive from Anquan? Where is the detailing thereof? Why isn’t Anquan under Ecosystem or “Faces of Zilliqa”? Tell me more about what they’re doing with their token sell-off that tanked the price of Zilliqa, would you? You guys said you had 4 years of treasury runway, why then was Anquan’s sell-off and tanking of the price imperative to support YOUR operations? I swear I will bring this up every month until the community gets a respectably specific answer. Stop with the vagueness please and thank you. I fully expect to be contacted by Zilliqa after this, enough with the slow-going head in the weeds approach. Let’s get some precise, purposeful, and timely efforts in the domain of communications, marketing, and business development. Thanks for taking the time to read; Again – HAPPY TO HELP IF YOU’RE IN NEED; WILL WORK FOR MARGINAL SUMS; Kind Regards, Zilliqa Project Investor and Proponent

Over the past few days, i have been searching for a guide for new Singaporeans to get their first Bitcoin. I have came across a few and find that some of them are outdated and i have decided to do 1 on my own and share it on Reddit to help fellow Singaporeans or those who are interested on how to buy Bitcoin in Singapore. *I had to removed quite a few pictures due to the limit of 20 pictures per post. I seek your understanding on this. A Guide To Buying Your First Bitcoin In Singapore What Is Bitcoin? It is a digital currency based on the blockchain technology. The currency is completely free from any central authority and transactions are fast and secure. Bitcoin was envisioned as a utility coin that was meant to take over real money. However, users have found more value in trading the cryptocurrency as an investment commodity. Where To Buy Bitcoin In Singapore? As a Singaporean, we have access to a huge number of both local and overseas exchanges. But for a beginner, I would recommend using some of the platform which has simple User Interface(UI) as the exchanges might be too complicated or intimidating for a new user. Below are the 3 platform that I would recommend. 1.Coinbase:US-Based 2.Coinhako:SG-Based 3.Cryptaw:SG-Based 4.Gemini:US-Based Difference Between Them?

Note that even though the price of Bitcoin is above SGD 8,000 at time of writing, you do not need a lot of money to buy Bitcoin. You can buy a fraction of Bitcoin which is also known as Satoshi(0.00000001BTC). Through this article, I hope you find the exchange that best suits you. From my experience, I started out using Coinbase. But due to the higher fees and bank fees, I decided to switch to Coinhako after finding out more about them. I used Coinhako for slightly over a year and faced very minimal issues, but most of the time I will have to solve them myself as it takes up to a week for Coinhako Support Team to get back to me regarding my issues. Earlier this year, I came to know of Cryptaw through a friend and after some studying, I decided to switch over to Cryptaw as they solve a few issues I face with Coinhako. No doubt Cryptaw charge a 0.2% higher trading fee, but for the convenience that I am getting with their Bank Transfers deposit and higher trade limit, it is definitely worth it. The reason why I included Gemini was because a few of my friends are trading using Gemini and they told me Gemini provides better support. But in my opinion, Cryptaw is good enough for me as I have never faced any issues with them and their Support Team usually replies within a day. TL;DR: I am using Cryptaw Note: Trading of cryptocurrencies involves significant level of risk. Prices of goods, regardless of their nature or substance, have no permanent nature and are subject to constant change. Price fluctuations directly affect the value of assets held by an individual over time. Any good - virtual or not - can both gain value and become worthless over time. Due to the fundamentals of the cryptocurrency trading system’s functioning, it is vulnerable to fluctuations in the level of confidence of market participants, which directly affects the level of demand or supply. The level of confidence can be affected both by purely economic factors and non-economic, including technological ones. Given the above, please thoughtfully decide whether the existing degree of risk involved in the cryptocurrency trading is acceptable for you.
Guy on Gold Coast (Aus) lists his house for 500BTC. At the time of listing 1BTC was AUD $12,804 - net AUD price 6.4Mil AUD. How viable is this..? (i know, it is a marketing ploy but lets discuss it) Scenario 1 - you actually have 6.4 Mil AUD in the bank.
AVG transaction fee for BTC at the moment is $7.92 AUD/transaction
this highest exchange daily AUD to BTC transfer amount I know of is $9000AUD - to get your 6.4mil to BTC you would need to do 556 transactions. Excluding exchange fees that is BTC fees of $4402AUD - not to mention it would take 556 days.
==> Totally impractical Scenario 2 - you go to the bank, under the factional reserve system they write you up a loan, for 6.4 Mil (frac ratio 10% so they have 640k AUD in reserve).
banks will not settle unless they control the money transfer themselves - ie they will not just give you the cheque - they will make sure it goes to the vendor.
how will the bank get 500BTC from their 6.4Mil AUD ..?
==> Seems even less practical Scenario 3 - perhaps there are other exchanges around the world with higher daily limits - US? but you likely can't use them unless you are a citizen of that country. Thinking.. use coinbase etc. SWIFT xfer 6.4Mil AUD to USD, then coinbase it from USD to BTC. As an aside, there is Stamp Duty payable under QLD state laws - though Stamp Duty is calculated against $AUD. if the place is changing hands for a 'trade of agreed value in BTC' - is stamp duty payable still ? how would it be calculated.? to my knowledge the GST and Stamp duty laws specifically reference $AUD, in this sense doing the trade in BTC is akin to trading in clam shells, is it not.? interesting.. anyone, anyone, Bueller..?

I have less than G worth of bitcoin on coinbase but cant sell as canadian. What are the fees like to xfer to quadricax? Is it safe? Wonder if its worth it keep adding on coinbase or just use coinsquare instead, but CS has some undercutting prices on coins compared to coinbase. Thx
Trying to shuffle money out of coinbase without waiting 20 years for verification.
Ive got some bitcoin stuck in my coinbase account that lost the link between my bank account and the app itself. Now it treats the same bank that I re-entered as a new one sending two verification pennies (or whichever amount). Is there a way for my bitcoin to be transferred to another app or do I need to wait for verification to cashout? Every minute that coinbase waits to verify, im losing pennies and dollars in value making me want to pull out money even faster. Pretty hypocritical that I can instantly BUY bitcoin at a locked price but have to wait to SELL at an unlocked freefalling price. Can I xfer to another app or is it permanently locked in Bitcoin until I turn it into dollars again?
