Hi

 

My kids have been using sharesies for a while now. My more tech orientated kid wants to now invest in crypto (so just buy/sell not mining).

 

Whats the best/easiest way to do this from NZ? Do I just get signed up on something like crypto.com? Or is the more to it eg do we need to use a NZ platform for exchanging real money to crypto and vice versa?

 

Thanks

Investing?! Crypto is more like gambling. There's a big chance you lose your money, and a small chance you make a lot of money.

I bought some off kiwicoin. Used internet banking. Moved off the exchange to own wallet.

 

Stick to the golden rule, "if it is not your keys, it is not your coin"

There are very few local exchanges but I just received a press release a few days ago about a new entrant - coming from Australia. I cannot vouch for them but here it is: NZ Crypto Exchange | Trade Crypto Anytime, Anywhere | Swyftx

Yep Im totally aware of that. This is a learning excercise for the kids so not really "investing" and would only be tens of dollars.

NZ based one: Buy and it directly goes to your chosen wallet using NZ's Account2Account payment mechanism: https://easycrypto.com/ 

 

Is the private crypto forum still going, here somewhere?

No, it is not. The user who created it has since been removed from Geekzone so the forum disappears with the account. Subscribers are welcome to create private sub-forums and manage access to it.

Accoount2Account (like Poli) Violates the T&Cs of pretty much every Bank's Internet banking systems... It gives them a really big out if things go sideways

Technically true. However you can use bank deposit if you like as well.

Thanks everyone! Appreciate the various steers. Have signed up for Swyftx for now as they have a "demo" mode where you can play around before sinking money into it.

On a related note, has anyone been playing around with NFTs lately? If so, would like to know your thoughts/take on it.

Would this call for another thread topic?
