Kay, your profile says newbie so you get a small amount of leeway, but be warned, posting links with no description or summary is considered nigger-tier, and a suspendable offence. Bitchute links, unlike youtube, do not embed a thumbnail nor title.
Hasn't it been impossible to create an account here for years? How could someone be a newbie?

My phone got soaked and is broken.

My Coinbase account was linked to the phone with 2-factor authentication. Even though I maintained the same phone number with my new phone, for some reason I cannot log into my Coinbase account. I can find no e-mail contact for help, let alone a 1-800 customer service number.

Fortunately, all my BTC is in my wallet....or else I'd REALLY be pissed off.

So, I just tried to open a Gemini account. Every time I try to add my debit card, it reads, "AN INTERNAL ERROR OCCURRED". I have no clue why. I've tried with multiple browsers. I also turned off AdBlock. Still have the same problem. I filled out a ticket with Gemini, but I have little expectation of a solution.

Is there any other quality broker recommended here besides Coinbase or Gemini?
I'm responding super late so you've probably already moved to another platform but, I like ftx.us. I was on HitBTC until they restricted US users. Gemini's fees are too high for my liking.

ALGO - Fast transmission. You don't have to lock in a stake to collect an APY (Coinbase offers 6% APY), I hear it's now being used for NFT purchases. 10b cap. In my opinion I'd grab some for $1 or less and HODL (Hold)
brilliant ... breached $3 yesterday

I bought $100 in BTC at an ATM a couple days ago:

  • It asked for my phone number; I used my real number, but if I had a burner I could easily have used that.
  • It asked for my name; I gave my real name, but nothing prevented me from using a fake name.
  • It did not ask for birthday, driver's license, SSID, mailing address, etc. Every ATM is different in terms of what policies it enforces and at what thresholds.
  • Presumably I was being filmed by a camera in the ATM; certainly the gas station security cameras were filming me. These days you can easily get away with wearing a mask that completely obscures your face. I don't wear a mask because I'm not a faggot.
  • Payment was cash into a slot. If you're completely paranoid, remember that cash holds fingerprints, and bank machines which count/dispense cash likely record all serial numbers.
  • They charged $7.50 in (((fees))) on the transaction.
  • I converted it (more fees) to XMR using https://changenow.io/

PS: Here in America, it's still perfectly legal to donate money to bloggers, even antisemitic ones. The opsec is so the jews don't find out and get you fired/murdered.

Keeping crypto in a cold storage wallet is probably the safest, but the only 'growing' it can do is appreciate against your local fiat.
If you want it to 'grow' (accrue up to 17% per year in addition to price appreciation) consider spreading it around between the following:
The most aggravating part of the process is getting your funds out of fiat and into crypto. You don't have to convert back to fiat to spend it. There are credit cards that let you spend your crypto directly.
Has anyone tried using these with any success? I just tried opening a Hodlnaut account, and at the end of the verification, it wanted me to provide a document as proof of address. I don't even know what to use. I live with my brother, and all the bills are in his name. Could I use my car's registration? Is that a good idea? I'm a millenial, but I have a boomer's paranoia when it comes to putting a lot of info on the internet.

What kind of account does the bitcoin go in when you buy it at an ATM? Do you give them your wallet info or something?

Sorry if I sound like a dumb-dumb. I'm just really bad with stuff like this.

Yes, your car reg would probably be adequate. It's a risk, but so is lending out your coins. You get to decide if the potential reward is worth it.
I just got turned down by a new crypto exchange (they dont' say why). Maybe because I have 'too many' other crypto exchange accounts?

I got an email notice on Friday that starting Monday one of my other crypto exchanges will impose new restrictions and require all their users to provide answers to the following questions:
  • Rolling 12 month trading limits for crypto assets other than BTC, ETH, BCH, LTC
  • Account appropriateness and suitability questionnaires upon login starting Monday.
  1. What is your yearly income?
  2. What is your net worth (all assets minus debts)?
  3. How many years of investing do you have investing in crypto assets?
  4. How much of your crypto asset investment are you prepared to lose due to market volatility?
  5. Will you be using any borrowed funds (including credit cards) for your crypto investments?
It's none of their business, so I'll make sure the account is empty and scratch 'em off my list.

What kind of account does the bitcoin go in when you buy it at an ATM? Do you give them your wallet info or something?
Yes, whatever BTC account/address you provide is where the Bitcoins will land.

We have to start as newbies, so it doesn't hurt to ask questions along the way. Keep track of your wallet seed words, but don't share them.

I genuinely appreciate the info. I know I'm a little behind the game when it comes to crypto, but I need to get in it.

Hodlnaut asked me what my yearly income is as well. I was not sure at all why they needed that.

Sorry, should have mentioned that. The machine asked me for a bitcoin wallet QR code. I had generated it at home on my PC using Exodus, and printed it out.


I haven't heard of Hodlnaut, but it sounds sketchy. If all you are doing is buying and holding, you can do that without all that bullshit.
 
Thorswap will be adding monero back again soon, and then you'll be able to do trustless decentralized trades to and from monero there. You can also make a return by depositing to provide liquidity. Thorswap is a cross-chain DEX. Also of interest is the new Haven token XHV which is based on monero code, but allows you to swap to pegged tokens right on the blockchain with no exchange. It's still very new and a bit untested, but has a lot of potential.

I presume you're referring to changelly.io ?

.. and you're seeing this message?


Just do as it says buy BTC (or one of the other ones on the list) and convert to XMR (Monero).

Remember to send donations from your own personal wallet. Don't send donations using an exchange wallet where the recipient address is most likely on a 'blocked' list and may get your exchange account closed. Send XMR from your exchange to your wallet, then send XMR from your wallet to recipient.

no, sorry I abbreviated the address I was driving when I spilled out the post.
it is site ChangeNow.io I bought a very small amount of monero before.

(why can I put a picture in this time?)

anyway, per chat support they don't offer buying monero any longer.

but yes, I am guessing it will have to be as you say, a crypto swap.

can you confirm it would be safe to transfer bitCoin from a block chain wallet to eXodus wallet for monero?
