This. It’d be so much easier to buy ADA via Coinbase. I have the misfortune of having my debit card being blacklisted on Coinbase because my bank automatically rejects the purchase as a fraudulent charge. So I have to send to my USD account and wait a week until they clear my money. I’d love to just be able to buy ADA like we can BTC, LTC, etc.
It was fall until BTC broke 6k.
NOW, it’s winter as we slowly descend back to a price that people will buy for the next cycle.
2020 is next BTC halving. 2019 end of year may be when we start to slowly creep back up.
Hopefully, cardano will be in fighting shape by then. Love to see some mature ideas take shape in this space.
New exchanges add liquidity and volume so any new exchange is great news let alone a well established one such ass coinbase. I believe top 10 is where we need to stay to keep up with the competition as it is an important factor when considering institutional players entering the market. Happy holidays mate!
Here is the list of 30 coins that Coinbase are going to add: [https://blog.coinbase.com/coinbase-continues-to-explore-support-for-new-digital-assets-92ba4ab7f465](https://blog.coinbase.com/coinbase-continues-to-explore-support-for-new-digital-assets-92ba4ab7f465)
Reminder: Satoshi's papers, stated: Abstract. A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution.
BTW, I never saw the proof of stake from Coinbase users funds on the real blockchain. I suspect that they use a some kind of fractional reserve with people's money... that means... what you see on your CB balance are not real BTC, but just a promise (IOU) to pay you those BTC...
A "MtGox case" can happen anytime with this Coinbase shit.
Remember The Golden Rule of Bitcoin so choose wisely your wallet, this is the only one important thing that make difference between wallets.
Bitcoin = Be your own bank, so act accordingly
Mobile wallets = for managing small amount of btc
Desktop wallets = for managing medium amount of btc
Paper/steel/hardware wallets = large amount of btc, that you just hodl and do not move for long time.
Steganography wallets = insanity, paranoia about security :)
Online/custodial wallets = black hole of your money, use on your own risk. Those are against The Golden Rule of Bitcoin
/\THIS + I didn't see any sort of will or deadman's trigger, which might be important to some when choosing wallets || here's one resource for help on this, others, welcome of course as this one seems to be based in eth:: https://legacy.network || i didn't realize they are an ethereum white paper thing with no product
You would only write it down if you memory cannot handle a passphrase, or you need it to be readable by people other than yourself.
And the minimum size secure passphrase is a 12 word mnemonic, which if you cannot memorize that then there is no secure method that can store your key.
So its a catch 22 and thus a moot point. Hide it real well if you cannot memorize things, otherwise there is nothing needed.
lol. if you have a weaker key than what a mnemonic provides, then its potentially vulnerable. And if the password is strong enough to resist advanced brute force attack, then its all you need and the drive is redundant.
you are hiding behind key stretching; and key stretching is fundamentally a weak strategy. Its simply no substitute for entropy. Vera crypt is obsessed with key stretching when they could have actual security instead.
