The realvision.com video link goes to “error 403.”
Any help finding the video somewhere else?

Ethereum was made for scamming people instead of advancing science since it was 70 percent pre-mined and has a mining algorithm that was never designed to advance science. And don’t forget how in 2017-2018 all those Ethereum ICOs were complete and total scams too. I would rather see digital contracts used to help advance cryptography and solve actual problems than scam people with garbage we don’t need and which nobody who is not a scammer asked for.
Perhaps a dumb question but if I wanted to put a small amount ($3k or $4k) into a little bit of crypto, how do I go about that? Or could someone direct me to a good resource to look at.
I’m not selling any of my gold or silver, but I’m done dollar cost averaging in for now, figure I’ve got enough. So I guess I’ll start with crypto, just putting in what I wouldn’t mind losing, a little at a time, not a trader just want to tuck some away and forget about it.
Thanks for whatever you can suggest (or PM me).
Hi David Henry,
Adam Taggart posted a beginners article on how to buy your first cryptos a couple of years ago. I just helped my daughter do this a few days ago and I’ll walk you through it.
1. Gather your smart phone, SSN, Drivers License, street address, date of birth and your check book (routing number and account number). If you have online access to your bank checking account you will need your login information, password and PIN.
2. Got to coinbase.com (or a similar exchange)
3. In the right upper corner (I believe) is a button “Open an Account” or “Get Started.” Click that.
4. It will ask you to put in your identifying information, address, SSN (I believe), phone number.
5. Then it asks you to confirm your identity by uploading a picture of the front and back of your drivers license. Take a picture of your DL with your smartphone camera and email it to yourself. You need a nice clear picture, not blurry, and don’t cut off the edges or let your finger show. Both the front and back.
6. Next you will need to “Add a payment method”. This screen will guide you to your banks name. There are several steps here that show coinbase.com what bank account you will use to fund your coinbase.com account. Your bank account and your coinbase.com account are now “linked.
7. Moving $$ from your bank checking account to your coinbase “US Dollar Wallet.” Go to the Portfolio tab, scroll down a bit, and click on “US Dollar.” On the right it gives you the option to deposit or withdraw funds and shows you the name of your linked bank account. Choose deposit and put in the $$ amount. Click OK and it transfers $$ from your bank checking account to your coinbase.com “US Dollar Wallet.” (US dollar wallet is the place where your dollars are stored on coinbase.)
8. To buy your first cryptocurrency, click the button in the upper right “Buy/Sell.” You then choose the “Buy” tab, the crypto you want, and the dollar amount you wish to purchase. Then “OK.” Coinbase charges a fee (~ $7) for each transaction.
That is it. Your portfolio section show the dollars and the crypto coin that you purchased.
Crypto Casey has a good YouTube video on how to buy Crypto. https://youtu.be/sEtj34VMClU
You want to add in some layers of security and backups because it is a bit Wild West with no support.
Many thanks for the detailed instructions both as posts and a pm. Much appreciated !
Maybe even simplier then Coinbase (which I use & recommendation also) is either
the CashApp or PayPal – Simple way – cheaper fees then Coinbase to wade your way in – BTC Available on both
