this is BULLSHIT none of the money has gone into coinbase. says they have been having "SEPA bank transfer partial outage" issues for the past few days. i sent money 11 days ago and it is nowhere to be seen

they are reversing my deposit as the name of the account doesnt match my coinbase account - revolut causing a problem?

back to square one. may just have to bite the 4% fee bullshit on coinbase with a card

Look at upcoming ICO's (initial coin offerings) where you can easily get 10 times return on your investment. The issue is investing in the right coin but this is where research comes in.

in my eyes the sheer proportion of ICOs that are about to collapse will lead to a dramatic contraction in the market. there is no doubt we are in huge speculative bubble for cryptocurrency

ICOs are just higher risk, higher reward. Most are trash and there are always private pre-sales. Finding a good ICO is really hard.

What gives with coinbase telling me that any and all BTC addresses are invalid?

If only I'd saved my BTC instead of buying drugs with them I could now have bought 10x that amount of drugs Cry

I was buying BTC at 30 back in the day spent them all, then when they crashed from 1200 I spent them all again, now I have a rule to buy twice as many as I need.

Seems to have stabilised again, loads of noise about bitcoin forks and hype over BCH lately.

Good moment to buy BTC now! I had an order out on €5200 which was easily hit today. Didn't expect it to yesterday.

Fucked up and added an extra zero to a transaction fee. Transaction has been pending for 5 days. No chance of it confirming with the amount of traffic recently.

I thought transactions were cancelled if they hadn't confirmed in 72 hours?

Any idea if I'm gonna get my coin back?

Please note that I personally think these are good sources as they're sources I regularly use. Be cautious as bitcoin is volatile. Their value is only created by trust among users and you may see your dough double or halve in less than an hour. It's only slightly better than going to a casino.

Nobody can predict the course of bitcoin or other altcoins, don't trust hacks online telling you otherwise. Only use money you can lose and not care about if it goes to shit.

People were off mining BCH instead over the weekend, I just had a low one go through after 5 days now the value of BTC is back.
