Hardware Wallet - Bulk Buy (Group Purchase)
#1
With crypto picking up quite a bit, I am thinking of doing a bulk buy with some other forum members.

I personally want to get the Ledger Nano S for a start or the Trezor

The Ledger Nano S can store the following coins:

Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Ripple, DodgeCoin, Zcash, Dash etc.

Ledger Nano S - https://www.ledgerwallet.com/products/ledger-nano-s

Trezor - https://trezor.io/

@BitcoinZAR are you able to bring these in or should we look at UPS/DHL shipping.

So far:

What is the rough costs we looking at? Shipping ect, obviously it will get cheaper if more people are keen.

Ledger Nano S is 58.00 Euro excluding their TAX and excluding shipping.

Trezor is 89 Euro excluding their TAX and excluding shipping.

Not sure what shipping is all I know is I want to split it with others.

I want I want I want

Not prepared to wait forever though, so are we doing this or not?

On the other hand it would probably just be easier and simpler to install my current wallet on usb drive and password protect it, or get a secondary smartphone that hidden somewhere in the house.

Yes we are, but realistically this will be either by the weekend or Monday there is a few others who said they will comment here by Friday.

On that note assume we go Ledger S, I will mail them and ask if we can pay in bitcoin then we all pay to BTC address A and then from that address we pay Ledger. (That way all is transparent.)

How would you know who has made payment into BTC address A? Basically how would you tie payment back to an individual?

My thinking was if we are 10 people, then I will PM us all with the BTC address and then each one send a proof of payment to the group.

since none of us is here to make a buck, we simply just want a cheaper way to get the Ledger, I want to mail them and ask if they have bulk pricing for us.

I got this from trezor today when I was inquiring about more trezors:

"Currently, however, the interest has been increasing with a staggering speed. The number of orders has reached heights, which were unimaginable last year. As a consequence, we will eventually not be able to meet the market demand for TREZORs.

We are therefore primarily focusing on increasing the production capacity during these summer months. As production does not scale so quickly, the rejuvenated supply will not be available until August 2017. Therefore, we had to take an anticipatory measure to ascertain that we retain an emergency level of stock:

All new bulk orders have an estimated shipping date in the middle of August 2017. The possibility of pre-payment is still available, in order to reserve a desired amount and a date of shipping. We will schedule the orders following order of the incoming payments and we will process them in "first in first out" manner. We deeply apologize for the delay and we are sorry we have had to take this measure."

So dont expect anything for a while from Trezor.

Ledger too have problems. Dont expect an order placed today to leave the factory before September, you can see this on a notice on their website. They said to me: "Unfortunately we don't have any item left and more than 10,000 orders in the queue and we will not be able to send it earlier."

I am sold out of trezor devices, and have some Ledger Nano S devices, but I am selling them at ridiculous prices.

The price of bitcoin has basically doubled since I ordered.....I paid in bitcoin, so to make sure I am not out of pocket, I have to sell it for at least what I paid. The next thing is the shipping and tax added onto that price, and then of course some profit.

I am selling them for 0.069 BTC which is approx R2650, which is about R1000 more than I wanted to sell them for originally.

The upside for the buyer is they can have the device in a 1-3 days if its during the week, delivered to your door by Aramex couriers (delivery is included).

At the moment there is so much demand, I can sell them for more and still sell all of the ones I have in a few days. I have not advertised them, and have only been informing people who emailed me and asked to be informed when some arrived, and now you guys.

Technically, your bitcoin can be secured without any cost if you use a decent mobile phone app such as Airbitz, Greenbits or Mycelium. The appeal of a hardware wallet is that it is secure, and really easy to use. If you want to secure your bitcoin on a web wallet, and be in control of your private keys, http://www.bitgo.com is really good.

I am keen on a Ledger. Just wanted to ask, once you have one of these wallets, do you then transfer your current Bitcoin and Ether onto this wallet, if so is there a cost involved when doing this? I have small amount of Bitcoin in Luno and store Ether in Exodus, do you still do all your buying and selling on these platforms then transfer to hardware wallet? Does this not then incur extra costs? Sorry just trying to clarify things?
