Cryptocurrency And Bitcoin News information on other digital
I dreamed to buy a bitcoin coinbase expedia. I knew I wasgoed late to the party spil usual, but I desired to feel what it is like to go through the process of signing up, buying one, and storing it te a wallet on my desktop. This may seem elementary enough, but it took 12 frustrating days before I wasgoed able to download my very first bitcoin.
Very first attempt
It embarked on Wednesday November 13, . I looked up the information, read the effing manuals spil it were, asked some advice and selected a bitcoin exchange.
I signed up at the Bitstamp exchange. To verify my identity, I had to upload a high resolution scan of my national ID card and a proof of residency (canap statement, utility bill, tax comeback, certificate of residence) which had to be less than Three months old. Now you vereiste know that due to a chronic illness which restricts my mobility, I live with my parents. This means that almost all utility bills arrive ter my parents name and those I get (VISA, handelsbank statements, mobile phone bills) are all electronic documents. I did have a tax comeback dating from August 14, , which according to Bitstamp’s policy wasgoed still valid for Two days. I scanned the document and uploaded it. Alas, the verification process took Five days (incl. a weekend). On Monday I got an email explaining that my verification request had bot denied, because the proof of residence document wasgoed issued more than Trio months ago. I instantly scanned the only other paper bill I had (a book order), but two days zometeen I got an email stating that the document didn’t meet their verification standards. Ter the meantime, the value of a bitcoin had gone up from around $400 to $550.
2nd, third and fourth attempt
I signed up at Bitcoin-Central. I uploaded a scan of my national ID card, my driver’s license, a proof of residence (copy of the bill for a book I ordered, very doubtful that this will get accepted), but then I had to upload a handelsbank statement with my name, address and the IBAN number of my bankgebouw account. I don’t have that. I have handelsbank statements with my name and IBAN number and I have letters (more than Trio months old) from my canap with my name and address, but no statements with all three mentioned.
