    Kraken has good rates. Just do a bank wire transfer to their account.

    Localbitcoins is fast but has higher fees.

    Durwoord,

    Is the money available immediately? Is it secure?

    Can I send the money directly from Kraken to the Book?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Ripper.

    Can you send directly to Book from these?

  6. #6
    haven't used them yet, but my understanding is yes. I'm still using coinbase to chain, to book.

    Just looked at Abra app and cash app.

    They seem good, but donít I still need to buy the Bitcoin from somewhere?

    Those just look like wallets to me, unless I am incorrect.

    Thanks again Ripper.

    I am still investigating Coinbase. If I use a debit card I might not need to wait for the funds to clear but I am not positive on this.

    If anyone knows the answer to this I would appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    If I use checking account then I think it takes a while to clear. Like a week or longer.

    Canít this shit be easy?

    Man I miss Neteller.

    Bill do you have a bitcoin atm near you? If so, put that abra app on your phone, go to the bitcoin atm, deposit funds, scan the addy from the atm and send it off to 5 dimes. If you google it, the info is all over at other forums on using these other options.

    This is about 100x better than Neteller.
    If it looks too good to be true, it is.

    Thanks Ripper.

    Will definitely find out if I have a Bitcoin ATM near me.

    If not, I will see if I can use a debit card at Coinbase.

    I am verified at Coinbase as well but they are now telling me there is a 20 day hold when I use my checking account. Weird.

    Really need to look into that Abra app,

    Thanks again Ripper.

    Bombs,

    What exactly?

    Thanks.

  15. #15
    Ripper,

    Seems like the Bitcoin ATM charges an 8% to 10% fee.

    That is pretty steep. Send $1,000, they take almost $100.

    Has to be a better way, but I really do appreciate the help.

    Hereís where I am at. Coinbase lied to me.

    Just spoke to them again. Funds wonít be available for almost a month.

    Asked them about debit card and they say they donít know. So at this point they are not an option for me.

    The Bitcoin ATM seems good but could be up to a 20% fee from what I read.

    Anyone hear anything good about Kraken?

    Thanks guys.

    Guys, anyone know anything about the Abra app that Ripper mentioned?

    They say you can do $2,000 per day, 8% fee. Can use credit card.

    Scam or legit?

    Seems a little scam-ish to me, but maybe I am just nervous now because of what Coinbase did.

    Thanks again guys.

    Kraken.com is very reliable. I've used it twice to buy bitcoin.
    It takes about 24 hours to set up an account & get verified.
    The withdrawal limit is $2500 per day for a tier one account.

    But no, you cannot send bitcoin directly to the sportsbook from Kraken.

    Thanks Durwood.

    Anyone know if you can send directly to Book with the Cash App?

    Or would it be best to go from Cash App to say blockchain wallet then to Book?

    This Cash App sounds great. Can buy Bitcoin, and send it out. Just not sure if I can go straight from Cash App to Book.

    Thanks guys.

    This Cash apps works very well and fast. Moved money from my debit card to Cash app to exchange within 20 minutes after verified. Took about 3 hours to get verified btw.

    please help..what number did you call to talk to someone at coinbase? the number i have just tells you to choose an option and NEVER gets me to a real person?? by the way, i use my checking account debit card and the transfer of funds usually takes 15 minutes to 5dimes..you need to have your bank account verified in order to do this though!! but it is pretty easy!!
    The juice only matters IF you lose!!!!!!!

    Bitcoin can also be bought as a more traditional investment vehicle. It is very liquid and I hold it in my investment account. Here is some info on it.

    Grayscale Bitcoin Trust
