Quoted from Pintucky:
I have been trying since October to open an account on Coinbase and/or GDAX but can't get either of them to accept my driver's license photo.
I've written on here before about this. But since there has been a flurry of new postings, I thought I would try it again.
I need some recommendations on what exchange to use other than those two. Some of you have surely bought on a different exchange. I read a lot today about Bitshares.org. I can't find any fee schedules on their site. Can anyone vouch for them?
One last question. If I successfully buy Bitcoin or Ether from, let's say Bitshares, can I sell them someday using another exchange? Just pull 'em outta my 'wallet' and sell them?
I'm trying SO hard to get rich and I can't even GIVE my money away!
i signed up for Kraken, and my experience was similar to yours. getting verified was a complete pain in the ass. in the end, i wound up not even using it for what i planned (depositing cash). You might try finding a bitcoin ATM and depositing cash that way. I'm pretty sure you can deposit straight to coinbase that way.
