I have just failed to benefit from the recent NuShares price drop by buying some extra shares with the few dollars i have, the local BitCoin seller asked for an extra $10 fee beside the 1% fee since i am paying less than the $100 limit !
This is too frustrating, Cryptocurrencies will never be accessible for limited resourced people like me until we find a solution to sell 1 NBT actually for $1.
I wish this isn’t the last chance to get some cheap NuShares before it is too late.
I’m really sorry you have had this frustrating experience.
May I observe that the problem is really with legacy currencies rather than cryptoassets? If you had wanted to exchanges your dollars for euros, you would likely be looking at similar fees. However, if you were buying NuShares with NuBits the conversion would be very inexpensive.
It is my hope we can create a complete financial system in crypto so that people just live there and have no need for expensive and cumbersome legacy currencies.
I too would love an nsr/nbt pair. Currently the only one is on ccedk with no volume. I am arguing for the ability to burn across the nsr/nbt price point for custodians, which will also aid in this transition.
Now a days, the only real option is nbt>btc>nsr via an exchange like poloniex.
