    Is it easy to get your money back out or utilise it via a vendor? I hear complications are abound.

    Quoted from oldskool1969:

    It’s really easy. You have to be verified and then link your accounts, but once that’s done, it just an ACH.

    Did anybody read "Attack of the 50 foot blockchain"? I just have. The author is strongly biased against cryptocurrency and I think he goes out of his way to paint anybody involved negatively, but it seems like a well researched analysis and goes way beyond the "tulips" argument.
    I'm not sure how accurate the numbers he gives are though.
    I'd be interested to hear somebody else's opinion because if you follow his logic it's hard not to come to the same conclusions he does.

    Quoted from thedefog:

    Go onto Coinbase/GDAX
    Buy Ethereum
    Send to Binance ETH Wallet
    Buy Link with it
    Hodl
    Thank me in 2 years

    I hope someone here followed this advice

    I had bought my LINK in December 2017 at $0.52. I’m kicking myself in the ass for not buying more.

    Are you still HODLing? I hope you bought a pile of it.

    Bitcoin can't be that great, I keep getting texts and emails with people I don't even know just giving it to me!

    #1709 11 months ago

    If anyone that has a Coinbase account wants free EOS, PM me. I have Coinbase Earn referral links. You have to watch a few short videos, answer a couple questions and they give you EOS.

    It probably takes about 10 minutes.

    Bitcoin drops in recent days show the alternative currency susceptible to the same pressures equities face. It would seem the coin would be rising in value given current events, given its "Hedge" marketing.
    I'm a little surprised though no expert.

    I almost had a heart attack when I woke up this morning. I did use the opportunity to grab some more LINK though.

    #1717 6 months ago

    Looks like halving came early.

    Looks like it's time to pick up some more. Last time it dipped hard (down to 4k) I bought some more and it then shot back up to 12k (where I sold some).

    I opted to go with some stock today instead and grabbed some shares of PPL. I've been eying more ETH though and have been a big fan of LINK since forever....

    I stupidly sold like 1/2 my stack about a week before it jumped to $3+

    What a week for Link.

    #1726 73 days ago
    Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

    What a week for Link.

    I dumped 130 tokens at $8.80 to get back most of my initial investment. If I had only bought more back when it was $0.30.
