Messsage from sigruna14 in MacGuyver - Skills & Academics #cryptocurrency
your wallet should be the GUI you can download from the bitcoin site itself. never leave your coins on a website based wallet.
My main need rn is to convert sbd
@sigruna14 the reason being the IRS is now confirmed inside coinbase to see if people make over 20k from coinbase transactions.
because coinbase is a huge node dont use it for selling
use localbitcoins or localmonero or local[insertcoinhere]
How else are you gonna convert to USD? And does it not matter so long as you're not transferring too much?
@Volkmom do you want to get bitcoin or a different coin? the wallet depends on what you want to get
But localmonero is super expensive
I need to convert SBD, and I think I would rather buy lite coin or eth
Dont make fun lol
ok lets start with ETH. good solid coin.
Ok I am a user on steemit
I have sbd
I'm a total newbie here and just got a chunk of sbd
which operating system are you using?
windows, mac, linux
im going to guess windows
i know but i dont know which OS she is using and i had to take a guess
OH OK one second
watch this as a tutorial
and here is the website he is getting it from https://github.com/ethereum/mist/releases
Yeah is it normal for them to request ID for buying coins?
just need to find the one labled Ethereum-Wallet-macosx-0-9-3.dmg
They did that for BCH too
yes. its to make sure people arent being screwed over. there are ways of getting around it but it requires more of a tip. that is why localbitcoins or any of the local[insertcoinhere] sites are a bit more expensive
but those sites are the best for getting coins if you want to stay anon
if you are buying them
if you want to stay completely anon you just buy the parts to a mining rig and mine. then you can just sell and never have to really buy
@Deleted User must an account be created on Github in order to DL the ether wallet?
just click on the blue one labled "Ethereum-Wallet-macosx-0-9-3.dmg"
Ok I'm trying to find that
