Corporate and personal cards

You need to call the bank and tell them you going to do the transaction though
And you will have to upload your passport and a bank statement as proof of ownership of card and identity
They also make you upload pictures of you holding the card


But I can guarantee you it works


I got tru with one deposit and they blocked the card. When they called concerning subsequent transactions, i told them i want to do the transaction. They told me flat they dont allow it so back to my rep card. This was this week
Yes they not allowing it. Spoke with them also.

You actually not supposed to be getting through so stop sending tuners to their doom.

FX trading , crypto currencies, online gambling arent allowed to go through.. however some merchants find loopholes and some ppl just surprisingly get through for some reason.. you are one of them. Don't be surprised if one day your card just stop working there one day and you can't call and tell them is just you and u accustomed

At least they ent have no restriction on cashin out to CC yet, good thing i would never need to buy crypto lol.

went bago an drink up meh gazoo an mash up meh lil iphone se on a job site so ah need a lil quick usd to offset purchase of new one so ah cash out a lil smth to meh rbl CC rather than WU as normal. Thankfully exchange rate went up a lil ting and ah get a lil extra than i wanted to cash out as d SE is just 400usd lol.

For those who suggested from payoneer, what are the fees like? seems to be more like paypal to, not seeing how to directly move from BTC to TTD cash out without expensive conversion intermediary.
I also checked and say Payoneer TOS says that they don't allow transactions involving btc or any digital currency. So maybe go have to stick to WU for TTD cash-in-hand out till dese new Visa Debit cards available locally get online capabilities.

Anyone having any issues using Scotia Mastercard to buy after their major system upgrade?

I agree with above that it's like playing lotto when using TT cards. Eventually with credit crunch they will clamp down more, hope not but we are regressing. My FOMO worse now.

Scotiabank moved crypto and forex investment purchases as "cash advances" which has been the trend with banks worldwide for the past two years. Since cash advance balances is usually a small sum for most customers (like approx $300TTD), you're pretty much done.

Other local banks are following suit, and as mero said you might get away with a transaction or two until they fully add the merchants under the new system where your transaction will be blocked. Since banks more than likely have you and others noted for buying crypto with your CC, they will monitor your transactions. If they see you get thru with a merchant, they just add that merchant into their systems for you to be blocked next time.

Until international regulations on cryptocurrencies is hashed and rolled out in the financial sector, expect more clampdowns.

Anyone on here trying their hand to mine Chia coin?
It uses a different proofing method (based on disk space instead of computational power), but it's causing large capacity HDDs/SSDs to inflate in price in the past few weeks.

Musk hobby is pump and dump. Pumped up bitcoin then crashed it. Helped to pump up Game Stop earlier this year too. His tweets have also caused wild swings in Tesla stock price as well, like when he tweeted about taking it private and got into trouble with the SEC.

Not sure if he profits from it or he's just a troll.

He didn't sell his BTC though. He said that Tesla stopped accepting BTC as payment-- but only 19ppl bought tesla with btc so it's not like this method was pumping his sales. Also there's the incident with Vitalik and the ransome with untraceable crypto to hacker group Darkside which would've thrown everything off. Not to mention panicsellers.

you brave to be buying coin now yes
everything is sooo volatile atm

I expected dogecoin to be gaining closer to the 1.00 with musk's sorta plug for it, but even that is dropping
It seems ppl taking out their money but not re investing in another coin
However gold and silver prices are up compared to a week ago

its china freaking up the crypto price
yesterday they ban financial institutions from dealing with it
i assume that even means you cant buy or sell it using your accounts/ cards

https://www.reuters.com/technology/chin ... 021-05-18/

China has banned financial institutions and payment companies from providing services related to cryptocurrency transactions, and warned investors against speculative crypto trading.

It was China’s latest attempt to clamp down on what was a burgeoning digital trading market. Under the ban, such institutions, including banks and online payments channels, must not offer clients any service involving cryptocurrency, such as registration, trading, clearing and settlement, three industry bodies said in a joint statement on Tuesday.

“Recently, crypto currency prices have skyrocketed and plummeted, and speculative trading of cryptocurrency has rebounded, seriously infringing on the safety of people’s property and disrupting the normal economic and financial order,” they said in the statement.

China has banned crypto exchanges and initial coin offerings but has not barred individuals from holding cryptocurrencies.

The institutions must not provide saving, trust or pledging services of cryptocurrency, nor issue financial product related to cryptocurrency, the statement also said.

The moves were not Beijing's first moves against digital currency. In 2017, China shut down its local cryptocurrency exchanges, smothering a speculative market that had accounted for 90% of global bitcoin trading.

In June 2019, the People's Bank of China issued a statement saying it would block access to all domestic and foreign cryptocurrency exchanges and Initial Coin Offering websites, aiming to clamp down on all cryptocurrency trading with a ban on foreign exchanges.

The statement also highlighted the risks of cryptocurrency trading, saying virtual currencies "are not supported by real value", their prices are easily manipulated, and trading contracts are not protected by Chinese law.

The three industry bodies are: the National Internet Finance Association of China, the China Banking Association and the Payment and Clearing Association of China.
