Update $113.00 more in hand using an exchange.
That compared to $253 loss plus fees on Blocktrades.
If I had traded my liquid Steem balance via Blocktrades, it would have cost $253.00 plus fees, and I would have been done in minutes. I chose the slow, patient way and got $113.00 more in my pocket.
I sent the same 2933 Steem to a thieving underhanded exchange. I don't like exchanges. I put it up for sale, sold it all into bitcions, then sold the bitcoins for dash with each trade having a small fee. Then I sent three transfers of dash to my wallet over the course of three days due to limits. Each transfer had a small fee. and I still made money compared to the integrated Steem exchange called Blocktrades.
My dash is arriving and I have the total cost comparison.
Time is money
it is true what they say about time being money. It is also true that patience is a virtue, and I used a bit of patience, taking several days to change my Steem into dash coins.
Using the same values at the time of my last post: Steem @ $1.45 and Dash @ $2.53
