Just signed up for Coinbase.  They wanted my PayPal for withdrawing money (wouldn't work in Korea) and my credit card for depositing money.  My TD Visa didn't allow crypto purchases while my RBC Visa did.  Not sure how you buy crypto in Korea though.  I linked the Coinbase through Canada even though my Korean phone number is used for retrieval.  I had to send a scanned copy of my passport page to get them to change the settings to Canada though.

Ah, this site will let you buy and sell - import and export from and to your Korean bank account with no foreigner restrictions?  Guess I went to coinbase figuring I'd have to do it from Canada only.  Good to know.

Really?  Does the Korean government know about this?  Surprised they haven't restricted it yet, just to piss us off.  I will check into it.  Thanks.

Know of any trading stock account in English based out of Korea by any chance?  I do have a TD Waterhouse account set up back home.  Though, I haven't used it yet.

Lots of institutions are buying, also a lot of the xrp holders probably swapped their xrp for btc.

My prediction was off by just 3 days and a few hundred dollars...  :P

I hope you guys that FOMO'd in took profit because it looks like the market has turned.


I think we'll see 35K BTC in 2020.

I dunno man, that was a massive 5K red candle they printed today. If you look at the weekly chart it looks very similar to the 2017 run, just on a bigger scale, to me that candle signifies the end but we shall see.

I could see ETH possibly running a little higher, it usually runs after BTC.

not that it's worth much, but google trends only shows about 30% of the interest compared to 2017. i have hope that this rally will be much more sustained. i mean, even a 30% drop will only take btc to 20k. crazy

What exchange do you recommend for my Korean wife to use? We live in Korea
I've been buying/trading since the covid dip using a Canadian exchange, but would rather not continue to do that for various reasons. Is it a good idea to open one up here in her name? Would there be any issue sending my coins to her wallet?
I hear that trading crypto in Korea has not been foreigner friendly.

I'm a newb.
Any useful info appreciated
