    I'm looking for places to purchase bitcoin with least verification hassle. Somewhere I can buy from within hours and not weeks. Have used coinmama which had a 10k limit before more verification was needed. Looking for something similar. Not somewhere that is going to let me throw $200 in

    If you'd asked me a week ago, i would've said litebit.eu - they did, however, just potentially lose their customer data to an unauthenticated entry.

    On the other hand, the chances are slim that they'll be hacked twice in a short time, so take a look i guess?

    Best Regards

    I'm not really big into crypto, so don't understand everything, but me and my business partner are just transferring everything into Bitterex, so I guess the company supplying the coins is irrelevant as long as they go from A to B. The coins won't be held where they are purchased from.

    I had good experience with Coinbase. You do have to provide your ID etc. Other than that, there were no problems at all.

    The reason why i mentioned them is because they don't require verification apart from having a valid bank account, last time i checked. It's quite uncomplicated to buy coins there.

    Edit: I'm talking aboute Litebit. Kraken does require basic identification and extremely thorough identification if you're from Japan or Germany.

    Of all the places I have used, local bitcoin has been the best. you can sign up and be trading within hours. Some traders ask you to upload ID but its a real time thing - so you can upload proof of ID, they check it and then you trade straight away. so its good.

    No I'm not stupid, I'm here for the gamble. Plus I don't want bitcoin. I want NEO. I'm trying to get 30 / 60k into Neo, before the boat sails.

    Will be following NEO now if you do get into it. I haven't invested into crypto at all yet but I might. Especially if the Korea thing goes hot war.

    My plan is to put 30 / 60 k in, then if it doubles, pull the investment out and hold. But I do not want to buy in after / if it hits above $50. I bought in at $16 And $18 up to now, and just waiting for an order of 5k which will probably go in at $25. Over all managed to get around $15k in up to now.

    The clock is ticking...

    Playing with crypto, you need to be patient. I remembered when I spend bunch of my money for BTC, purchasing around 100+ of BTC at the price $500-$600 each . It hit $1,000 after that.
    And then, suddenly it drop below $300< for many months. Due to mtgox hacked.

    But I still HOLD it for many years (only sell it at $2.1K last few weeks), the only stupid thing I dint do are not purchasing it more when it drop below $300 & selling it at $2.1K due to panic.

    Now lets do it again with NEO.

    I suggest Coinbase or Bittrex, they are very fast on verifications.

    If you have a bitcoin ATM in the area, and don't mind slightly high fees and a lower withdrawal amount, worth looking into!
