What's Currently the Best Way to Buy STEEM?steemCreated with Sketch.

With prices this low, I feel like I'll be kicking myself in a few months if I don't pick up some more STEEM now. I haven't bought any crypto recently and it seems things have changed so fast that I don't even know what to do now. I went on Coinbase to try and get some LTC so I could trade that for STEEM, but the app says it will take 3 days to show up, and then CB holds it for 13 days on their platform before I can send any of it out. What a joke. I want my STEEM and I want it now!



Does anyone have any ideas of how to procure STEEM with fiat fast? With how quickly this space is moving, I feel there has to be a better solution by now.

Anyone have any answers?

I dont know wether this is available to you or not.

What i did just recently was download a LTC wallet app to my phone, go to a BTC ATM, put in cash and get LTC.

Then I went to blocktrades and bought STEEM.

Dont know if you have access to a BTC ATM, but I dis all of this in one day.

Good thought. I've never used a BTC ATM. I'm gonna have to see if there is one in my proximity and maybe give that a go. Thanks for the idea!

Be aware that the fees for buying Bitcoin from an ATM are typically much higher than buying from Coinbase. At least as of a year or so ago, there were no BTC ATM’s in Minnesota. If you find one, let me know.

FWIW, this site seems to indicate that there now are some here:

I used one in Vegas though. Road trip!

Thanks for pointing that out. You are correct about fees.

I just had the impression he was more about speed at the moment. It is fast :-)

Good to know about the fees. I did find one in Brooklyn Park (or Center, can't remember) but they only had BTC available and not LTC. Not a fan of the fees and I would prefer LTC as most of my BTC transactions have taken eons to complete.

13 days? Coinbase takes 6 for me. I bought some LTC there last Friday, it should be available to convert to Steem tomorrow.

But even 6 sucks.

Well that's what the app says. In the past when its given a set time, it usually ends up being faster. But like you said, 6 days is still ridiculous.

You could also check out localbitcoins.com for a quicker way to go from fiat to cryptocurrency.

Thanks for the idea, Tim! I checked that out, and it seemed as far as I could tell that the only local guy wanted a $40 minimum service charge. I'm not looking to buy a ton, so that would kinda be counter productive. But I would guess that new offers come and go all the time, so I'll keep my eyes peeled for something more up my alley.

And BTW!!! Your vote on this post bumped me up to a 59 rep finally! Not that rep means all that much anymore with bid bots. But none the less, I feel like I was a 58 forever, so thank you!
