How do I buy AltCoins if I am a resident of Hawaii?
Bittrex not opening new accounts. Website says “upgrading”. Heard can buy with Upload
but their reviews are bad and had problems cashing out of cryptocurrency.
You can fund a Bittrex account using altcoins, sure. Bittrex are located in Las Vegas as far as I know, but I guess you meant your location… Should work from anywhere.
Hi Ronald, certainly, once you managed to buy BTC then you can use that the purchase altcoins.
Is buying AltCoins a way to deposit funds into Bittrex (in Hawaii)?
Yes, you can certainly transfer Ethereum and it’s related ERC-20 tokens from Kraken into MEW.
I tried Kraken and I am getting approved now for some levels of trading they have. Have you tried this one and can you transfer your crypto from it to your MEW after you buy tokens in Kraken?
Sorry I am bothering you and hopefully this message reaches you at some point :) Mahalo
http://www.hawaiibitcoin.org you can use Various Bitcoin peer networks to buy bitcoin!
Bitstamp and kraken do not work for hawaii residents!!!
It is directly against hawaii regulations to purchase Bitcoins direct from an exchange with USD however, you can use peer to Various Bitcoin peer networks
What regulation restricts Hawaii residents from purchasing cryptocurrencies with USD?
Yes, so it seems. I know Coinbase doesn’t accept clients from Hawaii. It’s interesting that you got approved for Kraken as people have reported it doesn’t work for Hawaii… be prepared for Kraken to disallow you when they see where you’re from.
I can’t vouch for hawaiibitcoin.org as I’ve never used them and haven’t done any research into them. That they accept PayPal is interesting. If you try them, I suggest you buy a small amount via PayPal as this will keep your credit card info secret and if there are any shenanigans, PayPal are very good about returning your funds.
I would feel most comfortable suggesting LocalBitcoins.com as a site I know to be reliable. Provided you follow their procedures when making your trade with an individual, you should be perfectly safe.
Ha WOW, it is against Hawaii regulations? this is so weird ….. why would we be so behind the whole world here??? So is the hawaiibitcoin.org a safe place to give my credit card info? Have you tried it?
