    What can I buy, in South Africa, with Crypto?

    How does that help ... it doesn't, you have to convert to Fiat and then you do that you pay fees. I don't need anybody to pay me. I am looking for places where I can use my crypto directly, from my wallet to theirs ... with no middleman.

    What can I buy, in South Africa, with Crypto?

    Sorry, not sure I understand, what is easier to pay tax? With Crypto? Convert then pay tax? Only convert what is needed to pay tax?

    What can I buy, in South Africa, with Crypto?

    I never said anything about avoiding tax ... not sure why you felt the need to tell me that, (OR SHOUT IT AT ME). I want to use my crypto for 2 reasons - so I don't pay fees to convert - to promote crypto adoption by usage.

    What can I buy, in South Africa, with Crypto?

    I was watching the latest video from Coin Bureau, () and I saw some cool stuff I could buy here, (VPN, Trips and so on ...) But those are all technically overseas businesses, so, what, (somewhat reliable), shops accept crypto as a form of payment in South Africa? Any online or brick and mortar...

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 4

    Well, yes and no, internet is a 24/7 business, yes it started after 3pm, (around 3:45), but that's not really relevant, as I said, internet is 24/7, we all pay for a 24/7 product. It is not an extraordinary, unrealistic assumption to make that someone would be manning support queries after...

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 4

    Lol, of course, of course, great customer service, no response what-so-ever for +18 hours, no internet for ~12 hours, (maybe more?), and blame Vodacom. But all we get is "not our fault, not our problem, you must just wait" If I hadn't posted here I would probably still be waiting for my ticket...

    To be fair, I am also getting no response from CooIdeas ... so we can't really blame VC alone for poor service.

    Thanks... But it really sucks that I logged a ticket 6 hours ago and you are only trying to contact them now... Do you know if it will be sorted soon at least?

    Nope... Nothing at all, they must be busy... Or just ignoring us.

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 4

    No, coolideas is my isp, vodacom is my fibre provider. Not sure if it is a timeout or auth error, looks like an auth error to me, my modem says "connecting..." for a while and then "Authentication failed, incorrect username or password ", but I didn't change my username /password and I tried...

    I am having authentication issues in the Durban area with cool ideas + vodacom... Is anybody else having issues? My username and password has not changed in months, so I don't think that's the issue. I tried a reboot of the vodacom and WiFi routers with no luck.

    Africa needs a single currency

    This makes the assumption that many have made over decades, that Africa is just one big country. In reality it is much more than that, and you cannot just lob everybody under a single currency just like that. Look at Europe, how wealthy they all had to be, and after centuries of slapping each...

    Bitcoin’s domination in decline

    Not sure if you are serious or not, but lightning is sooooo slow to get picked up. It needs to be 10x the size it is now to make a real, measurable, difference.

    Altcoins 2021

    Binance is quite good, but I only trade small amount. Coinbase is another one, I have an account, but I never used it. Get yourself verified, you might think you don't need it ... but when you do it will be a pain to get it done.
