    Didn't realize that. I live in a state that is more free on that stuff.

    I don't know how much of it is because of being "free", tbh. Maybe it's a PITA to get licensing in Texas, but they're slowly getting licensing state-by-state. Every state has its own hoops to jump through.

    I am. You can't register for Binance.us with a TX addy.

    What was interesting is my old binance account (before US version was a thing) - let me log in and then came up with a message about needing to make a US account etc. It basically froze the account (I'm in TX and never verified anything), anyway I logged out and then logged in using my VPN (selecting a country outside the states)... It then let me move some crypto/even do a trade - and then I moved it all to another address without any verification - so it's still technically an anonymous account. I think there's a daily limit since it's not verified but it was interesting since I'm assuming binance.us is asking for a lot of verification (similar to Coinbase).

    Looks like it’s still on projection despite the crash.

    wanna put more into it but atomic wallet is my only source to Bnb. Anybody that manages to get it should probably see it shooting upwards of 700$ in the next 3ish weeks

    A couple months ago Binance international let me withdrawl but couldn't trade. I should do a VPN and see if it will let me deposit. I really don't want to get funds stuck if it ever gets flagged but I don't think Binance international cares. All they have to do is flag .US IP access. I'll just use cakewalk.

    I could still withdraw from Binance a month or two ago. Not sure I could trade -- didn't try. And that was without any VPN. I just started getting the verification warning about a couple of months ago, I think. No big deal to me since I don't really need to use it for anything. I did have some dust I left on there from years ago, but don't really care about that.

    Mines a little similar on basically dust being there, unfortunately for me I wish I stuck with Coinbase/kucoin/binance etc for exchanges, when I got caught up in the Idax trash exchange trying to get in on a junk alt gamble I basically left this jokingly small amount on Binance and put it in btc and let it sit (leaving the account dormant for 2+ years or so). I logged in when btc hit around 50k and moved it out, a whole $75 or so - woooooo, haha. I wish it was a cooler story/higher amount but $75 for a few mins of transfers isn't too bad.

    Since the amount was so low and btc fee high to withdraw, I traded it for ltc to move it to another exchange. I don't think I'll test if it'd continue to let me trade there but I thought it was a little interesting, since without the vpn it was basically preventing me from even making the ltc trade.

    Yeah, I definitely agree with you on not wanting to get funds stuck/test vpn with funds on this, I mean especially if you cash out on a really huge trade. I mean after I lost money in idax scam while trading there, I'll probably just stick to the usual exchanges or even make a binance.us account once it's allowed in TX.

    Honestly after my idax experience I figured my jokingly small amount I left on Binance would just go to nearly 0, not because I think crypto is going to 0 but because I was heavily trading junk alts at the time, fortunately I had left it in btc. So while still a jokingly small amount in crypto it was nice to see it actually get transferred out.

    I get your vibe but it's very different from GME. They both share the same unfounded hype but the mechanics couldn't be more different. For one there are no naked bitcoins floating around. Also if you're dumb enough to over leverage your position, nobody cares if you lose everything and there is nobody to bail you out.

    Just be careful mixing traditional finance with crypto. If they are not your keys, someone in the chain of custody can find a reason to take your coins.

    Thanks for the info! I’m so new to all this... if I buy doge or vet on voyager, can I sell it on that platform as well? If not, how do I sell it?

    So I have a pretty modest cryptocurrency portfolio to which I pay very little attention. Mostly BTC, ETH and LTC, but there are few in there that I took fliers on like XRP, WTC and VET.

    I just noticed this past weekend that the value of my VET is almost as high as that of my BTC. What's going on with VET? Why the sudden spike?

    Do some research on LTC. It might not be worth holding. If you view BTC as digital gold, LTC is digital silver. It might have small spikes here and there, but its probably better to hold it in BTC. Just my IPO.

    VET has turned my portfolio upside down. If you look through the BTC thread back in 2017/2018, many of us were very high on VET. It took a massive dive and moved sideways up until the beginning of this year. IMO, VET is the 3rd most valuable project. I really dislike hearing the term "great project with great partners and great team", but its true with this project. They really focus on the tokenomics to make it appealing to their customers and are less concerned about 'mooning' their coin. Also as VET is starting to get on more exchanges, its become a low cost meme coin similar to Doge. I am seeing a lot of pump n dump groups pushing VET.
