Who is everyone using to buy bitcoin now? Specifically in the us?

I can't use coinbase because I was banned. Most other bitcoin places I've tried say I can't buy in my state.

Looking for options. What does everyone say?

Your next best option would be to look into Bitquick and see you can make that exchange platform work for you. There are other exchange platforms out there, but pay attention to the differences in the exchange rates based off current market BTC price.

Isn't that the Australia one? Don't think they're setup in USA yet?

When sending from a wallet, how do you determine the mining fees? The wallet I am using had a high amount preset, I changed it but it still cost me more than when using Circle or Coinbase.

I believe it's based off a percentage of the BTC amount you're transferring, plus the different % rates for using credit/debit cards/bank accounts.

Thanks, it turns out that my mining fees were set in mBTC so they were actually not too high. I have everything set now.

Coinbase. But they tend to close accounts a lot due to "suspicious" activity. . Check out bitquick. Reasonable fees. Quick. No id required. (Usually). If it's not available in your state due to gov regulations just use a vpn and chose a different state. You can still deposit in your state no problem.

Agree on Bitquick...although I couldn't use a foreign VPN on their site, a US VPN worked fine...IDs are requested at BOA, I've never been asked for I'D at WF, however that may have changed by now.....

I went to coinbase, not as good but will suffice for now. I tried a bitcoon trading platform ( below post) but too much work. It does give you anonymity if needed. You lose that with coinbase

How about our U.K. members; you have lots of options in the EU. Are there any I can use as an American or do they all require EU documents to verify?

I'm from the uk.
I've justed used bittylicous to buy and blockchain as the wallet.
I had to send two types of I.D but I don't remember seeing anything about eu only.
It was very easy to do, did the whole process on my iphone

I looked into the atms and they are great but its a bit of a hike for me as the closest one is about 45-1hr away. It's not a deal breaker but would rather avoid the drive if possible. I signed up to coinbase as it is the most similar to circle; however, this is not my permanent solution. I've stumbled upon bitsquare which is an unregulated btc trading platform and this seems to fit all of my needs. I've been doing some research and have a few more questions to answer before I consider trying it out.

Has anyone tried the BitPay app? If so, what are your experiences with it?

Just something to think about. Once their hands are involved. They'll never leave.

Cashed mine out last night. I had about 300 bucks that grew into just shy of 1200. Probably buy some more stuff for my home gym :)
