Staring this to document my recent purchase experience, consolidate older thread info, and keep some updated info on purchasing Safecoin.
I’m in a location that restricts operations of trading exchanges, so some available services/exchanges are not available.
Here’s how I recently purchased some MAID:
- created an Omniwallet
- used Changelly to convert existing cryptocurrency to MAID, depositing directly to the Omniwallet in the transaction.
This was all pretty simple and painless - Changelly seemed solid to me and I had no problems.
- Changelly charges 0.5% fee for the transaction - what are options are currently available?
- What recommendations for cold (offline) storage are there ? I’m learning Omniwallet, but it looks like a simple Backup, then ‘Remove From Wallet’ puts me in local-copy-only. Is that correct? Other options/methods?
