  1. Bitcoin (and other crypto currencies)

    Do you use an authenticator app for two-factor authentication? If so you will probably have to restore your account on that with a key you got on initial registration. Not sure about the exchange apps themselves. I had to do this yesterday with my new phone.
  2. £GBP heading to oblivion

    Bear in mind that a currency being the 'strongest in 2018' just means that its inexorable descent toward worthlessness is temporarily moving at a slower pace than some others
  3. I have a little BTC but PM's are the much safer bet long term. Two different things entirely I think. You know PM's will always have a floor price as it costs labour and resources to dig them up. Cryptos may well have their uses into the future but fundamentally as an investment I don't see them as any better than fiat money. Each coin may be limited but new ones can come and go and drop in and out of fashion.
  4. Bitcoin (and other crypto currencies)

    Tin foil hat firmly on here, but does anyone sense a creeping anti-bitcoin narrative in the news lately? There seems to have been more attention paid to criminal activity involving bitcoin payment, not least the recent 'ransomware' attacks. And the big story today about the model apparently kidnapped in Italy for a bitcoin ransom seems a bit suspicious to me. I'm not sure a normal person having gone through that ordeal would want to parade herself in front of the media in not much more than bra and knickers as soon as she gets home. I wonder how long before potential BTC regulation starts being discussed?
  5. Bitcoin (and other crypto currencies)

    One thing I don't understand... if bitcoin is completely decentralised and not owned or controlled by any authority or body, who decided to make this 'fork' on August 1st?
  6. Bitcoin (and other crypto currencies)

    I must admit I have been disappointed by the bitcoin experience since becoming interested in it and buying one BTC recently. The idea of cutting out the middle man, or the banks, in financial transactions seemed appealing, but the reality is you pay a significant premium for the coin, it can take hours to complete the transaction and it doesn't seem to be particularly secure once you have them.
  7. Bitcoin (and other crypto currencies)

    Bit of a bloodbath in cryptos today, with all the main ones down 7-17%. I bought a single BTC a while back for a bit of interest and diversity, but I don't think I'd be able to sleep at night if I had a lot in this game.
  8. Bitcoin (and other crypto currencies)

    I had the exact same experience with Coinbase. Tried to buy some bitcoin and etherium before the recent big spike but the exchange was either down, not accepting my verification details or my bank details. I tried contacting support but was completely ignored, and every time I went back to try again it seemed the price was a hundred quid higher. Eventually gave up and went to localbitcoins, but the shambolic experience with Coinbase left me about £300 lighter than I should have been. Reading the community forums there are a lot of people not happy. The exchange went down again the other day so my advice to anyone considering it would be to not bother.
  9. Bitcoin (and other crypto currencies)

    I took the plunge and bought my first bitcoin last week from Localbitcoins. The asking price has gone up £500 since, crazy stuff. I might sell it and put it into tulips. Not sure where people were finding the huge premiums mentioned earlier in the thread - the few purchases I've made were about 5% or less over the live price.
  10. GENERAL ELECTION

    I'm no fan of Labour, but Theresa May and the Tories are in no position to use the 'terrorist sympathiser' narrative against Corbyn given May's record as Home Sec during the Libyan conflict. British Libyans, including the recent Manchester bomber, were given a free pass to go and fight against Gaddafi despite the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group they were part of being a recognised al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist organisation. This goes beyond 'terrorist sympathies', and indeed is nothing short of direct complicity in acts of international terrorism. It should be one of the biggest political scandals of our generation. May said on the doorstep of no10 after the London attack that we are too tolerant of extremism. Yes we are Theresa, at government and diplomatic level. We all know where this ideology comes from and who funds the preaching of it around the world. But until we have a government with radically different foreign policy, we will continue to ignore it and prioritise lucrative alliances over the safety of our own people.
  11. Today I received.....

    Today I received my 2 lucky dip 5g gold bars from HGM.
  12. Gold Monitoring Thread £ only

    I scratched my itch the other day for 10g... could've saved £2 if I'd waited. Strange times at the moment. With everything going on in the world you wonder what it would take for gold to shift up a gear.
  13. Silver Deals.....

    Yeah it did seem to remain the same regardless of spot for a few days. I've got a tube of roos in my basket and noticed it had dropped about 16 euros this morning.
  14. Silver Deals.....

    Prices at goldsilver.be seem to have dropped significantly today for no apparent reason. Currently a tube of kangaroos works out at £15.48/oz delivered. http://goldsilver.be/en/home/270-1-oz-silver-kangaroo-2017.html
