payment from copay - coincards

Recommended Posts

Having never done anything with the little btc I have sitting in a copay wallet, I have been looking into ways of getting some of it out. Coincards seems like a simple way, but also seems strick on payment amounts and the time to have payment processed (justifiably so). Coincards site also mentions about not paying using a wallet that is going to take a portion of the payment, since this will reduce the amount they get.

My question is, will I have issues paying using copay to something like coincards? If so, whats going to be the simplest/best way for me to get from random numbers in copay to something I can use?

Thanks for the info. What payment speed do you typically use? I will check out newegg as well...I am thinking I may go for a new monitor with my bit of btc. We will see.

Anyone else use copay/coincards together? Seems good to just have gift cards. I didnt realise newegg was still taking payment in btc though.

Bit of an update incase anyone references this. I decided to transfer a small amount of my bitcoin (fraction thereof) using coincards. Like any review I had seen, it was dead simple, fast and easy. Plugged my webcam into my pc to scan the amount owing from coincards, which was instantly recognized by coincards/copay. Amazon egift card was in my email within a couple hours (not sure exactly how long).

Thank you for that info. It was helpful for me.

I have not looked at my tiny (few) coins in more than a year. Kinda scares me TBH. I was thinking of cleaning some of them up if there is any value in them (stupid alt coins :) ) and since Quadriga went down I did not know what the best way to liquidate was. Thank you

Glad to hear it helped. With the value of btc out of the toilet I decided to pull roughly a third of my portion of a btc out (mined a while ago with a 280x). I also havent done anything with mining for 1.5 years. This way I got something out of it even if it tanks again. I will roll the dice with the rest for now.

Literally the coincards payment screen was a qr code (or a wallet address if you cant scan), opened copay>clicked scan>pointed webcam at screen>clicked confirm>done.

    • The all new Crucial X6 may not win any awards for sheer speed (as it is SATA and not NVMe based) nor for having the lowest asking price in the market… and certainly no awards for being the most robust; but those are about the only major negatives we can think of. This is a rather flexible, predictable, and not overly expensive model that we can see making waves in a corner of the market that has become rather saturated of late. That in and of itself is impressive.   Read the full review below  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/crucial-x6-2tb-external-ssd-review/  
    • Taken as a whole, if you are not impressed by what Seagate was able to do… you have not been paying attention. It may not be flashy, it arguably is not being marketed optimally, and certainly is not a ‘revolutionary break through’ we have come to expect, but this new gen is a great evolution to an existing foundation. A firm foundation that has been further refined, and this refinement does pay tangible dividends. As such, if you can afford the asking price the Seagate IronWolf Pro 18TB easily justifies its professional moniker and its asking price – and then some. For those that cannot? Fear not, the release of this 18TB capacity model also means eventual price adjustment(s) to the smaller capacity models… and they are not chopped bits of mystery meat either – especially when they get 2TB platter tech in the future.       https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/seagate-ironwolf-pro-18tb-review/
    • We are surprised on what this little guy can do. Check out our full review of the Crucial X8 2TB below!       https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/crucial-x8-2tb-external-ssd-review/
    • This is honestly the perfect thing for people who love having a little personal flair in their bedroom, or on their desk. Overall it’s a solid buy especially as gift if your willing to put some money behind it. If your looking for something cheaper they do offer smaller and cheaper versions in their pixel art series that you can buy.     Read the full review here    
    • The LaCie 2Big RAID going to be right for every customer and every possible scenario? Of course not. Not everyone needs the flexibility a dual bay D.A.S has to offer. Not everyone will be able to get over toting around this much added weight. Not everyone will like the lack of daisy chaining abilities. Others still will prefer to spend the same amount of money on 1Big Dock and get more features at the expense of RAID abilities. For security conscious professionals, the lack of a lock on the drive caddies will be a major turn off. As such not everyone will be able to justify the asking price. Those that do will however love what it this model can do. It really can offer desktop levels of capacity without the weight of the typical tower PC, and can even offer decent data redundancy/protection with only a moderate performance hit.     Check our full review below.  Read the Full Review
