Create ETH paper wallet at: myetherwallet.com (Also a BTC wallet at blockchain.info if you haven’t already)
Quick Way (Short-term)
1. Purchase BTC/XBT at QuickBT (Canada) or WeSellCrypto.com
2. Convert BTC/XBT to ETH at shapeshift.io, send to ETH wallet
Slow Way (Long-term)
1. Create Kraken account, depending if you wish to fund the trading account with USD/CAD, submit all necessary info for Tier 3 account. Verification (Tier 3) takes a few days, unfortunately.
2. If you have any BTC/XBT, deposit into Kraken account and start trading ETH.
3. Do not get into the habit of using Kraken as a crypto-wallet, any ETH you wish to hold should be moved into the wallet.
I advise signing up for Kraken sooner than later (Tier 3), verification takes a few days and with influx of sign ups may take longer. There's still potential for profit to be made before news hits the normies. Anyways, good luck everyone, etc etc
AHAHAHA WELCOME TO YOUR CRYPTO HELL!
YOU ARE ON THE CONTAINMENT BOARD NEW FRIEND!
This level of shilling is what /g/ was going through and so moot made /biz/ purely for crypto and tacked on "and business" so it could contain more than just crypto.
That's all biz ever was at the beginning nothing but pure crypto!
And now we're back!
Yes, don't you know a pump and dump when you see it? The devs premined the fuck out of it and want to make bank before bailing and blaming the deliberate suicide on something else. As fucking volatile as it is, you better pull what you have and not be a retard.
Would I be fine using dash or dogecoin instead of bitcoin to transfer to ether? based on the wesellcrypto prices and the rates at shapeshift I'd end up with about 1 more ether when compared to using bitcoin.
What is a Tier 3 account?
Here is a noobs guide that may help some people
Although my advice is to just use shapeshift.io instead of poloniex or kraken it's far simpler.
Okay, so making sure I'm doing this correctly.

Not really. Go look at the "all time" chsrt for litecoin vs bitcoin and notice what was happening when litecoin popped up to 20 bucks
Btc new bottom is 300 and range is 3 to 400 , eth could soak up the marketcap difference but it wont dethrone until more utility apps come about
Yeah! Just as Bitcoin holders seen Doge as a good invested and converted to Doge en masse!
>ETH and Doge are the same and do the same thing
>ETH doesn't offer a host of useful functionality which will be indispensable in future business and banking
>ETH isn't the only crypto doing anything besides BTC
Try not to be so loud when you proclaim your ignorance.
