Hi,

I wonder if there are any compliance issues with your service in Europe.

I've seen a few websites which uses bitpay for payment in my country (germany) but not one shop accepting bitcoins through the ingenico credit card terminal (though this is used in our shops quite often).

Stephen, I am very new to bitcoin. I recently opened an account:

(1) set up coin base
(2) set up wallet chainblock
(30 Had $200 sent to my chain block wallet.

I never received any Emails from chain block and when I try to sign into my account it say wrong information. I go to the area to retrieve my information by putting in my Email and entering the scrambled code, but chain block send me nothing (to my Email). I am truly stuck is there anything I can do ? I have $200 in the wallet I would like to move out

Thanks

Hi Stephen,

It's really cool of you to give back like this... so thank you!

I have 2 questions actually... if that's ok?

1. With the impending EU legislative changes, what would you think about starting an exchange in a "tax haven"?

2. If you were going to advise people on how to maintain anonymity with Bitcoin, what would you suggest to them?

Thank you for your time.


Cheers
Dunstan

What do you think about incorporating a service like shapeshift, which allows people to pay with altcoins, without having to alter your core product?

Hello Stephen, I have been trying to get a hold of bitcoin for several months now since I lost quite a bit of money through a transaction whereby I was sending money to someone without my email being confirmed. As a result, my money was lost in the web and neither the receiving end nor I ever saw that money again. How do I proceed from here to get a return since it is impossible to contact anyone at bitcoin for some type of resolution??

Thanks for answering my earlier questions; one more for you, if you don't mind! In your opinion, what are the greatest advantages for merchants and consumers to using BitPay over traditional payment processors (such as Visa or Mastercard)?

I'd also like to know this. EU can be tight on server regulations.

hi Stephen
I am shooting a TV programme about Cryptocurrencies and the Blockchain next week on 24th and am looking for 'experts' to interview. Do you know of anyone in the London area who would be willing to be interviewed?
It is not live - we can reshoot and they can see the footage before it is aired
Can you help?
thanks

After pondering the inns and outs of my new bit pay card I often wonder why doesn't bit pay follow suite with uquid and accept BCC tokens it would be a huge service to the majority of profit makers opposed to bitcoins super high transaction fees... this pay by bit coin only regulation is beginning to smells like big brother doing a slow takeover....most will use uquid if big brother lets us no one seems to know for sure however wisdom dictates' we should have more than one basket to put our eggs in..yes it smells like big brother has a grip on something not too many choices for us Americans. Does bit pay have the power to overcome this?

Hello! I want to Ask you!;)

Read a lot of forums on cloud mining. Came to the conclusion that with constantly increasing computing power that`s gonna be difficult to earn. So I payed my attention to the Mining Now project http://miningnow.online/. The company that constantly improves its computing power, that means your investments will only grow in value.

Why aren't people using their real name or better still why isn't it compulsory to use your I'd?

Hello Mr. Pair. My name is Ken Flucas. I am very interested in investing in Bitcoin. The more research I do on it the more confused I become & the more questions I have. It would help me to better understand if I could get simple, straight forward, honest, no beating around the bush answers to a few questions. At this point, what i need to know is, how does Bitcoin obtain value? What causes that value to fluctuate? How to buy Bitcoin as an investor? How much does Bitcoin cost to invest? What is the minimum amount required to invest? How do i monitor my investment? How does my investment grow to become profitable? How do i turn my Bitcoin profits into cash in my hand or bank account?

Hi, I take the libery to ask you as well as the others «Ask me members».
I’ve done som serious research on exchanges for buing, storing and withdrawal crypto. I find it almost impossible to find a solid and trustwurthy exchange without negative experiences from users. Especially withdrawal theses days. I use Trezor for storing, and evaluating Ledger Nano S as a second wallet, but its really hard to find exchanges to trust AND withdraw the crypto without problems with transactions. I have solutions for Bitcoin and Ethereum but altcoins is the main problem. Poloniex, Bittrex, and a really great number of other exchanges just get negative feedback nowadays and lots of users are screaming about the withdrawal problems.
Mostly I notice inputs like scams, keep out, dont use, Unserious, I cant get my money, no support, and so on.
Really frustrating. I just want to buy different altcoins at an exchange and transfer them to my hard wallet without any problems. I also want a wallet to store Golum GNT which I find diffucult. Even the MyEtherWallet system and Exodus desktop storage has negative feedback.
Any recommendation for solid exchanges with only positive experiences and feedback not holding you awake at night ?
Thank you for reading this post and Please advice
JT

Hi,

Im wanting to start a bitcoin ATM. The impression im getting, I may be wrong is, some of the larger networks with BTM's have whole areas sewn up, and some companies making the bitcoin atms don't want to do any business but with their select few clients. Any comment? And just how hard is it to get into the Bitcoin atm business? Some states like Wv have outlawed bitcoin atm's all together. What bitcoin manuf would you recommend, and... will they sell to people outside of their little group? Im worried some companies may be just collecting info, and hadning it over to their big clients, letting them know who the competition is. Can't wait to hear the answer on this one :)

Hi Stephen; I am totally new to the whole bitcoin system, and I want to add it as a payment option on my website for my Online Golf Coaching.

How do I go about setting up a link from my website to my bitcoin wallet?

Thanks in advance.
