Hi, yes it is a full node so I should be able to access it in the normal way. It’s just a part of the btcpay server installation. At least I think so, I checked with btcpay devs, if “full-node reliant wallet” means what I think it means!
I’ll go ahead and give it a try.
I guess I could do the KYC
You’re right of course, stupid of me to think there might be shortcuts on the road to freedom, they are cul-de-sacs. On the other hand there is your work here. We just have to be careful which ones to take.
Thanks for reminding me.
Dash seems to be pretty good on anonymity I think. Monero is fine but really expensive to send/receive. I guess I am biased as I am looking mostly at smaller transaction, rather than the large ones that wealthy people tend to do.
Hi, A lot of people in the 3rd world are going to be completely unable to take part in this new economy.
I just wasted about 2 hours of time doing this security circus, and it failed, but only gave a copy of all the requirements text as a “reason”. I waded through the obstacles and did a support ticket The world is becoming increasingly googleesque.
It’s beginning to look like running a node for each coin might be easier. As my Mum used to say, “if you want anything done, do it yourself”
You probably don’t need ID in N Korea and PRC, they are more advanced than us!
I have partly gone through it. First they demand a passport, driving licence or national ID card. I sent front and back image of ID card, then it demands a “selfie” with me holding the card! I don’t have a “smart” phone, so now I am stuck.
Welcome the the future.
Ok thanks. I set the withdraw fees to zero so they are up to date now. I think it’s all up to date now. I set all the other fees to zero. I imagine if ever anything happens that would put it above the minimum fee, coinpayments will let me know!
Thanks I have changed that, but sorry to say I am bit dense when it comes to the mysteries of how these guys do their fees. I looked at the other coins, in the coinpayments help section about fees, but it just say “Tx Fee” nothing about how much. Elsewhere I find it is (maybe) 0.5%. There doesn’t seem to be any way to set withdrawal fee accurately.
If I set them all to zero and then the proportional one to 0.5% will it automatically stop transactions that are too low?
All I want to do is charge users the same as what coinpayments will charge.
You could be right, but I think with a decentralized (peer to peer) exchange system, the parasites would have to go after each individual trader rather than collectivizing everyone regardless of what they are doing, just to make things easier for them. Then, if you are not operating in commerce, you won’t be lumped in with everyone who is and have to do all the extra work for them.
What we have in our favor is that they are wrong fundamentally. Imagine if when you buy a loaf of bread, the baker says, you have to work out how much it costs, and if you get it wrong I will prosecute you”
Seems to me that KYC is like an infection; once you get it, other symptoms of the control freaks seem to appear too, like not wanting to tell your customers anything you don’t absolutely have to.
So far it looks like so long as we stay below the threshold, (1000 dollars I think) it will be ok. They will tell us when we have stepped over the line, then we will know. Withdrawals are still working here, so far.
This may be something we will just have to put up with until the decentralized exchanges are fully ready for widespread use.
I got an answer from support, but it conflicts (sort of) with what they said originally.
“If you’re using more than the daily limits we offer, then yes you need to KYC so you can raise your limit.”
Well, I will just wait and see. It’s only by going too far one can find out how far one can go.”
I checked and the other plug-in that is due for update shows its version details OK. I will leave it not updated. “view details” on all the other plug-ins seems ok too.
Thanks so much! I was dreading what I might have to do but with your instructions it was easy. All fine now. And I have better understanding of what’s going on via coinpayments, so all in all it was a worthwhile disaster.
Well I was stupid not to look for the obvious. The coinpayments plug-in had gone – must have removed it by accident I suppose. I re-installed it and it seems ok now. One thing I am wondering, with coinpayments the missed payments must be in coinpayments somewhere, not lost, just not registered in the wallets plug-in? Have you written anywhere a layman’s summary of the relationship between coinpayments account and the wallet adapter? I assume the payments will be somewhere available in coinpayments even when something goes wrong with the plug-in (or its user!)
Thanks and sorry for wasting your time!
