30K!!!

 

wow nice!

 

noob question - but is via a local exchange the only "easy" way to buy BTC without the major exchange rate discrepancy?

 

currently Luno reports R33590 per BTC  ($2,543) while coindesk reports $2,247.  thats a 13% knock .

 

 

has anybody crunched the numbers to see if there isn't a cheaper way to buy BTC? :(

If you were going to buy an "alternative" cryptocurrency other than Bitcoin and etherum which would it be and which looks to have the best growth potential.

When everyone is buying, then you should sell. 

 

Bitcoin will pull back a bit more I have no doubt, but I will continue to buy. Long term, it is the future.

So basically I should be selling my ether then, if taking that logic into play :P

The idea is to buy low, sell high if you are trading....although that is easier said than done.

Yes, when everyone is selling, that is often when I am trying to buy and pickup some 'discount' bitcoin :)

 

Long term is where the real profit will be anyway, that is what I believe too.

@BitcoinZAR did a post a while back about them, perhaps when he reads this he can give us an update of hardware wallets that are both BTC and ETH compatible.

 

Then we do a bulk buy as I am also interested in one and I have 3 other guys as well.

I have a bulk order for Ledger Nano S wallets which are hardware wallets that can do BTC and also ETH. The problem is with the distributors (Ledger Wallet) as they have a huge backlog of orders world wide.

 

I placed an order at the end of April, and it is still in processing (even though I have paid for overnight courier). They say there is a minimum of 5 week delay on bulk orders.

 

I have not advertised the wallets, as I dont have them yet, but it looks like they will be instantly sold as I have a waiting list going back to April for people who wanted them. I have asked if my order can be increased to accommodate demand, and also to find out when my order will be shipped, but there has been no response to emails since about 2 weeks ago. :(

I am also keen.

 

Massive backlog on the Nano S.

 

Last week it was July 3rd and now it's end of July.

 

I am travelling to Europe in August so might order some there and bring back with me but will see.

 

 

Either way, I am keen to join in, if you have any to sell.

 

Thanks mate.

They just replied about my request for extra devices and shipping date:

 

"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."

Time to look at alternatives?

 

A hardware wallet is great for security and convenience. A good alternative is a secure mobile phone wallet app, its just as convenient, and good ones are really secure. For bitcoin I highly recommend the Airbitz App, a really good, secure bitcoin wallet.

He said, “Bitcoin’s low of $1,800+ yesterday simply could not be maintained. In the long term Bitcoin moves above $500,000 within three years. Bets?” Shortly after making the comment, one of his followers responded, “So 1btc 500k $ within 3years?” McAfee’s response was memorable:
