    No because they change, and it's relatively easy to seek them out. If you'd like you can create a new thread :)
  • Hi there,

    First of all, I'm a virgin in crypto currencies world. So I wanted to buy some Ethereum for USD and made a deposit to QuadrigaCX. Stupid enough but I realized that they don't offer such an option. Then, I came up with an idea to buy BTC and then trade them for ETH.

    I'm looking at top 10 sell orders and feel frustrated because it looks overpriced in comparison with other exchanges.
    $4,522.00USD 0.10000000XɃT $452.20USD
    $4,550.00USD 0.10000000XɃT $455.00USD
    $4,583.00USD 0.30000000XɃT $1,374.90USD
    $4,590.00USD 0.10000000XɃT $459.00USD
    $4,599.00USD 0.17784300XɃT $817.89USD
    $4,600.00USD 0.10000000XɃT $460.00USD
    $4,614.99USD 0.02206838XɃT $101.85USD
    $4,615.00USD 0.23728751XɃT $1,095.08USD
    $4,618.00USD 0.72000000XɃT $3,324.96USD
    $4,620.00USD 0.01830000XɃT $84.54USD

    Desperately need some advice on where to buy ETH. (I think I can only make a deposit via wire transfer)

    It's madness to overpay ~$200-300 for one coin. Or I'm wrong, maybe it's ok?
  • CoinGuyCoinGuy Administrator
    It all depends. I don't paying a bit more for a reputable service. Everyone has to decide what matters.
  • I tried to use QuadrigaCX coz I wanted to support a Canadian business, but they're crazy about your privacy. They ask you to hold your ID and take a selfie. Even big platforms like IB or Questrade won't go so far to intrude your privacy. In addition, their fee is very very high.
    Eventually, I chose coinbase, much cheaper than quad and you can fund your account with credit card.

    @coinloup the problem you will face is withdrawal as a Canadian with Coinbase,

    QuickBT said:

    "Hi all,

    QuickBT is happy to announce we've added Ethereum!

    Now you can buy Ethereum in seconds using your debit card, credit card, or cash -- using the same trusted system that has delivered over 125,000 Bitcoin orders over 4 years."

    So, if you want to buy .075 of Ethereum (which comes to $67.37 CAD atm) . . . using a credit card, you need to buy a voucher through Flexepin, which comes in $25, $50 or $100..So you end up losing out on the difference, + it says, "allow 24 hours".

    Not quite seconds, or convenient... unless I'm missing something.

    @inphiknit this announcement from @QuickBT was earlier in the year. Haven’t used them in a bit, but you should be able to buy the amount you want without Flexpin. Have you contacted them?
  • How about buying Ethereum from EZBTC? Any reason why they aren’t mentioned yet?
