  1. I have noticed a lot of cryptocurrency related topics in the personal finance / other investments section. Whilst topics about crypto are highly welcomed, I don't feel that the personal finance / other investments is the correct section for crypto topics. Please can you instead; either post them in the cryptocurrency club on The Silver Forum found here: OR join our sister site The Bit Forum to post there
  2. Hello lads, I would like to tell you how to save money on fees at Coinbase. I guess you know that every time you buy crypto coins over Coinbase, they charge you fees. Actually there is a 1.5% fees over Bank Transfered Money, and 4% on credit/debit card purchases. So let's go over the topic and the question- How to save money on fees over Coinbase? Simple - don't use Coinbase. Let me tell you other trick you can make, there is an exchange called GDAX at Actually it's owned by Coinbase, but the difference between the main Coinbase and GDAX is that the second is used to trade cryptos between users, rather than with Coinbase. So here is the trick, you can use the same account and registration over Coinbase, but on GDAX. The only difference is that GDAX wants 2 verification documents, but you can still verify them at your Coinbase account. Second encouraging thing is the fees there, instead of 1.5% of buying, you pay ONLY 0.3% fees. And that is if you buy the coins at the market price. One more trick to save even more money, buy on Limit Orders, if you're Maker of the order you will pay ZERO fees over buying the coins. So basically you can top up your Euro/GBP account in Coinbase and than to Deposit that money over GDAX. From there you have the option to buy coin on market price with 0.3% fees or Limit Order with zero fees. For LIMIT ORDERS you need to be the Maker, so what you need to do is to check what is the market price and than to place your Limit order few cents below it, that's how you make the order as Maker and you don't pay fees over it. I hope I helped someone else here, if you have any other questions, let me know here or on PM. I will be glad to help you to save some money.
  3. Which cryptocurrency are you really excited about for mass adoption? I think it's only a matter of time before blockchain technology becomes part of every day life. I know big firms like MasterCard & Visa are working in developing their own technology, but with all the infrastructure in place, one of the already existing altcoins have a good chance of being the biggest! Its safe to say with Bitcoin's lengthy transaction times and high fees, it's not a viable option when it comes to day to day purchases, but which one do you think has the best chance?
  4. There will be two coins, a gold and a silver one. There are several features that point to this having a significant impact on the precious metal market. That it will result in physical being sucked out of the market and result in prices rising and ultimately a price reset as the paper market disintegrates.
  5. A List of Online Precious Metal Stores Accepting Bitcoin, Litecoin and/or other crypto-currencies. Amagi Metals - (Some mixed reviews. Delivery received OK from them 25th July 2015. See Below.) Bitcoin Commodities - (Also accepts many altcoins and CryptoBullion) Bitgild - Coaex - FiniteByDesign - J M Bullion - Shire Silver - SilverGoldBull - Suns of Liberty Mint - Veldtgold - Please comment in the thread if you have purchased precious metals via any of these online stores or if your online store accepts Bitcoin, Litecoin and/or other crypto-currencies.
  6. Dear Members of The Silver Forum, As a fellow silver stacker, numismatics collector and long-term supporter and user of digital 'crypto-currencies', such as Bitcoin and Litecoin - I hope to present to you an easy and perhaps revolutionary concept in " How to use crypto-currency to verify value and secure your PM trading." Aside from the actual benefits of crypto-currency as 'money' or as a 'store-of-value', most people are perhaps unaware of the added security or proof-of-ownership potential when buying and selling goods and/or services online (or in person) that crypto-currencies can already facilitate. Watch: - How to sign and Verify messages with your Bitcoin Adress from your Software wallet - https://www.reddit.c...d_verification/ Practical use cases: Lets imagine that you want to make a trade with someone on this forum (you don't even need to make the payment using crypto-currency or even hold a balance in said crypto-currency to sign and/or verify messages). You could request that the seller posts a 'signed' message of an address that they own and includes it with a screen shot of the actual item that they are selling, thus presenting cryptographically verifiable proof-of-ownership to you as the buyer. As the buyer proposing to purchase an item with crypto-currency you can also demonstrate to the seller that you have the currency/money to pay them and/or that you own the particular wallet address. As an online vendor (whether choosing to accept crypto-currencies for sales or otherwise) you could present screen shots of physical bullion to your potential buyers of items which are signed and verified as being your own wallet address. Lets say that you are selling a 5 Kilogram Silver Bullion Bar - you can post a screen shot of this item on your website with a signed statement that you own this bullion. This is 100% verifiable to anyone who verifies your message. To further build trust as an individual seller or as a vendor you can sign the statement to include both the item type and weight and even back it with an address containing the corresponding denomination in crypto-currency. So, in the case of the 5 Kilogram Silver Bullion Bar you could present a Bitcoin address that also contains £2000 to £2500 worth of Bitcoin (approx. example at the current silver price). This is also providing a potential buyer (or investor) with proof-of-value or proof-of-capital. If you are a small retailer of 1 Oz Silver coins then you might post a signed image and statement to verify said stock. In short, this is a better way to do online trading in precious metals. It is more secure for both the buyer and the seller. ... With regards to the above I endeavor to build up a fully decentralized Proof-of-Value network on top of an existing crypto-currency known as cryptobullion. Here is my post on the Bitcoin Talk Forum - cryptobullion thread topic, where I first announced this concept: https://bitcointalk....494#msg11844494 Proof-of-Concept - Back-to-Basics - Phase 1 CBX Proof-of-Value Network Certification - Building a Decentralized Value Network using the CBX blockchain. CBX Wallet Address: 5aPRwXQXXBaZF9WDv3FWD8fRc9fxgQsQCh Message: I BitcoinFX hereby back 1000 CBX with 10 Troy Oz of .999 Fine Silver. Should I divest either my CBX and/or physical bullion holding then this statement is automatically considered null and void within the CBX Value Network. I hereby endeavour to provide a separate notification should I divest this personal holding. Verify Message: IMUhmkIFFnWEJ9APS+CXnEFCEN3P42N6puqZlQzEqVsg3vBilnpeAa+svSMsQcAYbs3lSo4xRTafd2pPh9HBR24= Obviously, this message is only verifiable using the CryptoBullion wallet software and not with the Bitcoin or Litecoin software, as each crypto-currency chain uses its own signing message and verification system linked to that chains address system and applied cyptography. You could however choose to use any crypto-currency with said signing and verification system built in, being agreed by the buyer and seller. ... I look forward to community discussion and participation in this unique concept. Kind Regards, SilveriteFX / BitcoinFX
