I'd love me some more crypto, so I thought I'd give it a try. That's right, this is my personal experience.
Among listings on a gray market, this thingy caught my eye.
I got it from Kinguin, which can get to by clicking the voucher image above, but there's quite a list of resellers. It comes with a code which I had to input on cryptovoucher.io as shown below. Quicktip: always read what you're agreeing to when you tick boxes.
It is followed only by a very similar page where you type in your wallet address instead of the voucher code. You can also opt in a confirmation email to follow your delivery's status. They say it can take up to 10 hours, but mine finished transfering in about 40 minutes. Here's the email I got:
It went through.
I assure you one thing: it's easy and it works. Both buying and redeeming the voucher is very simple. You buy it with any of the available payment methods like paypal or any credit card. Transfering is fast enough. It's not instant, but I got my BTC after only around 30 minutes. All I had to do was type in my wallet address.
You get the option of buying 25, 50 or 100 Euros worth of crypto. Even though it only supports BTC and some ICO right now, they show ETH and LTC as "coming soon", so I'm looking forward to that.
You get 95% of what you pay for. You can check coinmarketcap's price to confirm this. It also adds up with taxes and fees along the way, just like their withdrawal fee for BTC of 0.00045, nearly 3 USD, which is only okay for those 100 euro purchases . But it should be okay once they get LTC and ETH up and running.
You can't "hold" withdrawals. Once you redeem your voucher, it has to be used. I didn't want to risk losing my BTC so I just rushed through it.
Should you use it?
It's far from perfect, but if you have no better and/or cheaper option to buy crypto, then this is somewhat acceptable.
Thank you for reading!
