  1. Purply's guide sounds about right. Step 6 is not necessary. It will automatically get picked up.
  2. Please let us know how to take part in this ICO. Sent from my SM-N910F using the Platinum Wealth app
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Hi Sailtrader, welcome to the forum. Lots of advice here. And if you have any questions, just ask. Here are a few very knowledgeable guys around. Sent from my SM-N910F using the Platinum Wealth app

  9. I downloaded Plus500 from the app store. If you register and confirm some details you get R750.00 to start trading with.
  10. 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.
  11. I successfully traded some ETH for Ripple. Very easy process. Thanks again.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. I found some info here for those interested. @BitcoinZar are you making use of this card?
  15. I read somewhere that one gets a VISA card linked to your Bitcoin account/wallet. Where can I get further details about this?
  16. I emailed the transaction details to Shapeshift yesterday. This morning just after 1am the BTC appeared in my Jaxx wallet.
  17. i'm not sure if this is the correct place, or if anyone could help me. I converted some ETH yesterday within Jaxx via Shapeshift to BTC. Still no BTC showing in Jaxx? Its more than 26 hours already. I had the higher fee enabled within options.
  18. I think with Jaxx you can create a linked wallet on your PC or another device using your secret pass code. I've added the chrome plugin and it works exactly like the phone app.
  19. I am using Jaxx wallet for now. It allows you to ShapeShift between certain currencies. Therefore skipping the "transferring to another wallet" step. I will investigate some other wallet options over the next few days.
  20. Only R200. I wanted to check to see if everything works. I'll add another R300 soon. Sent from my SM-N910F using the Platinum Wealth app
  21. I'm not sure what I done wrong, but ETH finally showing in wallet after 11 hours. Sent from my SM-N910F using the Platinum Wealth app
  22. How long does it take when transfering Bitcoin to Ethereum within Jaxx Wallet? I bought Bitcoin on Luno, tranferred it to Jaxx wallet and used the Shapeshifter App to buy the Ethereum. In my transaction history (BTC) it shows the -x.xxxxxxBTC and shows +6 Confirmations. It still shows nothing in my ETH screen.
  23. Just a quick update. We have an offer on our house for slightly more than anticipated. Over the last few months I have reduced my cellphone contracts by R1000 per month. DSTV only down by about R300. From Premium plus to Compact basic. I have been looking at the rental market in my current area. There are a few flats ranging from R300k to R400k and an oversupply of people looking for rentals in the R3k to R4k bracket. I'm considering the option of buying 1 or 2 of these properties end 2018.
  24. I haven't contributed to my TFSA yet this year. I will have a look at Stanlib's All Star. I am currently contributing 15% towards a provident fund via my employer.
  25. I was thinking about the TFSA a little. I might decrease the payments to R1000 per month. This will not be used when our deposit is needed.
