Re: A Look at Two Alternative Bitcoin Hardware Wallets on the Market

I own all the hardware wallets. Stay away from both Digital Bitbox and Bitlox. Digital Bitbox is made by a company in Switzerland run by a Core developer so doubtful it will every support BCC. It is a nice hardware wallet but limited in coins supported. You can buy a Nano S for not much money more. ...

Re: Best bitcoin offline hardware wallet?

You want a Trezor or Ledger Nano S. Suggest you don't buy from re-sellers but order direct from the Trezor or Ledger websites. Both are equal which you buy sometimes comes down to what is in stock. Both companies have had strong sales lately. Do you by any chance own the website you linked:)

Re: pool.viabtc.com now selling Bitcoin Cash cloud mining

For some reason known only to ViaBTC they took Bitcoin Cash cloud mining down (out of stock message) a few hours earlier they had over 5000 TH for sale. They will probably put it back up for sale in a few days.

Re: Bitcoin.com Mining Pool Official Discussion Thread

Based on @GreyWyvern's formula Bitcoin Cash difficulty would have to decline to 200 / 3200 = 0.0625 for miners to switch from BTC to BCC at current Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash prices.

Re: "The Bitcoin Group: Do not sent coins to ViaBTC, Bitcoin Cash is a scam!"

I think ViaBTC is an honourable company. I have been using them since they first started selling hosted S9 mining with zero problems. Bitcoin Cash is not a scam, it is the cryptocoin that will be mined by the Bitcoin ABC hard fork of the Bitcoin Core client coming August 1. It remains to be seen how...

There is still the question of Bitcoin ABC. ViaBTC is starting to pre-sell Bitcoin Cash cloud mining on July 22. Bitmain may still go ahead with the fork for Bitcoin ABC even if BIP148 does not activate.

Coinbase runs their own exchange called GDAX trading bitcoin, litecoin and ether. If you have a Coinbase account you automatically have an account at GDAX.

No offense but you have your priorities wrong. Owning the private keys to your bitcoin is no. 1; every other consideration is secondary.
