High risk - may pay off for some. Only "invest" money you can both afford to lose and are happy to lose.

Feeling quite relieved I sold all my recent XBT Etherium € and SK tracker purchases yesterday morning and taken the 30% profit. With better timing this could have been 50%.
I do not hold any cryptocurrencies directly now.

However, I have topped up on my free carry of Coinsilium (COIN) given what I view as a longer term blockchain play. I felt the 25% drop today was in sympathy with crypto's and that 15p was a reasonable repurchase point.... time will tell.


NOT a recommendation DYOR.

Well done. A good call to bank 30% profit.

working on something with some people i work with, and looking at the various Cryptocurrency exchanges.

have a LNS Hardware Wallet, and Sterling bank accounts, debit cards and credit cards.. no Euro or Dollar accounts, though these could be set up if necessary.

Coinbase is getting a lot of attention, but i understand that they're not great value.. and i'm not bothered about using an app. access via a bog standard macbook on a website is fine.

Kraken and Gemini seem slick, but are not offering transactions in Sterling, so i assume there is an exchange rate as well as purchase trading fees.

Bitbargain seems a decent option, but they only allow access to Bitcoin and Litecoin, it seems.

what Exchanges do people here recommend?

Planteria,

Not ignoring you. I just don't know/ or use wallets or exchanges. I am not engaged with cryptocurrencies directly.
