Re: Bodog (Bovada/Ignition) payout thread for US players (DO NOT post bank names)

Question re: holding BTC medium/long term. Should I keep my BTC in a blockchain wallet, coinbase wallet, coinbase vault, or set up something else?
I don't plan on holding an amount large enough to warrant going paperless, like >$20k, but want to protect against unknown shenanigans (like coinbase going down or something ??).

I'm doing my own reading to gain a better understanding of the BTC environment but wanted to see what do you guys in this thread who hold BTC do? Are their better alternatives than eg holding 10k in blockchain or coinbase?

Hey- has anyone withdrawn from Bovada (not ignition) recently? I went on a heater in BJ and wanted to see if the speeds are the same as Ignition in regards to bitcoin

Other than Coinbase, what other wallets are currently available to purchase BTC using my Visa today? Seems like I have a $50 limit on purchases here. MY method is Coinbase --> Block

It's entirely based on your risk tolerance. Personally, I would not feel comfortable keeping that much money on blockchain.info, or any other web based or desktop wallet. Most people generally advise against storing your bitcoins on an exchange. However, it's likely a decent option for certain people who would rather hand off responsibility for securing their funds rather than learning how to do it themselves. If you're fine with Coinbase having control over your money, as any bank would, then you can go that route. If it's important for you to have full control over your private keys, then you shouldn't store it on an exchange.

Ultimately, investing ~$100 in a hardware wallet is what I would recommend. Although, finding a hardware wallet in stock is difficult at the moment.

Bitcoin w/d:

Req: 9:30am
Rec: 8:30pm

11 hours just about on the dot. Not too shabby.

Control your own keys. Don't leave them on an exchange.

[QUOTE=Rant;52417340]Control your own keys. Don't leave them on an exchange.[LIST]

Especially with coin base going down 3+ times a week. Something isn't right. A good companies website isn't going to consistantly crash multiple times a week.
