    Luno BTC (mobile) to Jaxx (mobile) ETH?

    Purply's guide sounds about right. Step 6 is not necessary. It will automatically get picked up.

    Bitcoin Cards

    Does anyone here have a bitcoin debit card? I have been looking at a few different cards. https://wirexapp.com/cards/ (This is the old E-Coin card) https://xapo.com/card/ I think the conversion fees are a bit high. On average the conversion from USD to ZAR is 3% of purchase. I have seen a card with 1% fees but can't recall which card it was.

    To mine, or to invest?

    At the moment I have 50% ETH, 15% BTC, 15% Ripple, 5% Ethereum Classic, 5% Litecoin, 5% ZCash, 5% Golem I'll look into Siacoin, Status & Bancor. I'm still looking for an alternate or additional wallet to Jaxx.

    One thing I just realized is with the current pricing of mining rigs, your ROI isn't as per Nicehash calcs but now 5 to 6 months.

    To mine, or to invest?

    By the end of August I will have R100k to dedicate to cryptos. I am looking for opinions as to which option would be better. 1. buy 2 x 6 gpu mining rigs and start mining. With the current hardware shortages I will be paying a pretty penny for what is available, or have to wait a few weeks longer for the rigs after ordering. 2. Buy R50k BTC & ETH each. 3. Buy R25k BTC & ETH each and 1 mining rig. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    How to build an Ethereum mining rig

    I tried mining with nicehash on my i7 laptop over the weekend. I couldn't get to use the gpu (M540). It just used the CPU. But I don't think one would get any reasonable gains with 1 gpu.

    Buying Ripple

    I successfully traded some ETH for Ripple. Very easy process. Thanks again.

    Buying Ripple

    Thanks Spreadsheet Ranger. Very easy guide. I followed your instructions and transferred some ETH to GateHub. I'll convert to Ripple as soon as my transaction is complete.

    The Bitcoin thread

    Thanks for the detailed explanation BitcoinZAR. For now I don't like the conversion fee offered on the cards. I'll hold out for when a locally based institution/bank can provide a similar card. In the mean time I'll pump any free funds I have into cryptocurrencies.

    I found some info here for those interested. @BitcoinZar are you making use of this card?

    The Bitcoin thread

    I read somewhere that one gets a VISA card linked to your Bitcoin account/wallet. Where can I get further details about this?
