In case you didn't noticed, almost all of my payment proof posted here are from a blockchain-com website. Well they are actually a screen of the transaction details from the bitcoin blockchain, which has nothing to do with the website blockchain-com. The website is only used for showing information from the bitcoin blockchain, which is decentralized and public ledger and not owned or hosted by the blockchain-com website. Never mind, it's too complicated for those of you who don't know about BTC and how it is used for payments and I really don't write this post to educate about it. I only wanted to point out why the payment proofs you see here, big part of which come from me, are proofs with BTC (bitcoin) transactions.
The reason is this:
Paypal is SHIT, they have a FEE which literally rob the users with small transactions and lets be honest, shortener publishers use small transactions between 1 and 10 USD. Paypal fee is like this - 2.9% plus $0.30 USD to receive transaction. For a 5 euro transaction that's like 0.50 euro, or close to 10 % fee, just to get your money. Can you imagine how much is it ? That's a robbery, for 100 USD in small transactions you will give Paypal 10 USD and for 1000 USD, which lot of users make per month, the fee is 100 USD. That is ridiculous! Not even mention the ID verification they want, like ID, invoice from payment with the same name and address and etc. Hell, tomorrow they will want your blood group, picture with your girlfriend in bed (probably naked), a bio exam of your shit and etc. for what ? For getting small transaction like 5 USD and withdraw them to your bank. YES IF THEY DIDN'T wanted that from you now, that is because you are not receiving 1,800 USD per year with your account, but ones you do that, guess what... you show them your ass with green and red paint or your funds will be blocked for suspicious activity. Yeah, you are being considered as T_ e _ rrorist or C _ r _ iminal. No need to write further, will just finish like I started this - Paypal is SHIT, period! Same is for all other payment processors - Skrill, Webmoney, Payeer, Paysera and all the rest companies for electronic money transactions. They ROB you!
Bank transfers, well I don't even want to start explaining why you can't use this as well to get your small shortener payment - let me just say that the fee is bigger than your payment. Ancient, ancient mummy money service which is slowly dying year by year.
So here comes Bitcoin as the freedom I've looked for and which I've found back in 2016, just after I got my first Paypal notice to verify my account, so I can get my own money. Well the price of Bitcoin when I started using it was like $ 700, now (at the time I am writing this) it is 40 fucking thousand shitty fiat dollars $ 40 000.To get my payments the fee was only few cents, like 0.01 or maximum $0.10 back then and by paying it I was feeling super, like I was donating to the miners who actually make the network secure and which are investing billions in hardware for that, not like the services above, who only rob you. I know that in times like now BTC transaction are expensive, but you can use other crypto OR the best for small BTC transactions with almost zero fees - Lightning network. At this point the big crypto exchanges are integrating the Lighting network protocol to they withdrawals so pretty soon the BTC transaction fees will be again close to 0. Until then use BTC only for transaction Saturday or Sunday night - lowest fees and you are still way better than Paypal. Just use custom fees which you can set yourself and you are fine. So Yep, THAT IS WHY I USED BITCOIN EVER SINCE 2016 and why I will continue using it and you will continue seeing my payment proofs like BTC transaction screenshots.
If you are fine with all the Paypal and bank shit - CONTINUE USING them and being robbed, it is your decision and if you want to see more payment proofs from these robbers - just go ahead and try with other forum.
Good luck to all and congrats to all HODLers you deserve your freedom! Remember 1 BTC is always = to 1 BTC !!!
