Price Increase? With bitcoin too?!

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

Price Increase? With bitcoin too?!

Post by Jeb! » Sun Sep 18, 2016 7:17 am

What's with the price increase with the switch to Stripe (with respect to bitcoin)? Very recently the price for a one-month access token when paying via BTC was $3.86 or thereabouts---right under two-thirds of the current price. Used to, there was a discount for paying with BTC but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

I had planned on buying another one-month access token this month and already purchased enough BTC (or so I thought) to do so and then I find out about this. My annoyance is that it takes me a non-insignificant amount of time from payment to reception of BTC, which means I'm SOL for the time being.

Thanks Obama.

Same here. But it keeps going up. Do you think the bubble is about to burst, Tony?

I don't really understand what's going on on the crypto currency market.

Two years ago I bought some BTC for about 140$ and I spended 45$. The rest of my 95$ raised up to 3500$ until two days ago. Today their value is 2800$.

I'm impressed about the ups and downs of the BTC, but I don't know if my 2800 oder 3000$ (it depends on the day we are...) have really the value of this amount, so I could sell them for this price and change it to dollars or euros. I only bought BTC, I never sold them.
