Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

Finally got my BlockFi credit card last week! Looking forward to stacking some extra sats with that.

I was finally ready to move some BTC over there to collect interest on and decided I don't wanna do that for a few reasons.

- Rates are much lower than they were
- Issues they had with overpayment on crypto rewards
- Potential legal issues
- The final straw for me was their whole authentication system is very buggy/unreliable and I've ran into a lot of other weird UI/UX issues on their site.

It seems like they've just grown too fast too quick and don't have it together. I know a lot of people have always disliked them, but I've been a fan for a while and respect what they're trying to do. I am, however not willing to trust them with my private keys anytime soon, especially with APR rates currently so low.

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

So Tether USD (ERC20) is the same as Tether, right? I've only ever held and or traded bitcoin but multiple networks I play poker on also have Tether listed as a deposit/withdrawal option. Does anyone here have any experience ever making transactions with Tether?

The recommended wallet I find online for these transactions is MyEtherWallet. Is that a reasonably safe wallet to test out a transaction with this method?

If you download the fold app and link your cc to it you can buy gift cards and get more btc that way. I mostly use it to buy amazon gift cards.

That is tether. Iíve done transactions with it using MEW. Prob best to discuss this in the Ethereum thread.

It was risky with higher rates and before they paid some guy 700 BTC and let him withdraw it. Now it's lower rates and they've shown to be completely incompetent. It's a no brainer to not deal with them. WTF kind of system allows a 700 BTC payout and withdrawal of it.

Also, I never heard anything of that guy paying the money back. Shipping back $500 or $5k is a no brainer. Shipping back $22 mil becomes a bit of a dilemma to many.
