    You will need to download a mobile wallet to get started and comfortable with self custody. I like Blue Wallet. https://bluewallet.io/
  • Just bought some bitcoin and a ledger S but..
    I'd suggest that they are not on an exchange (cash app, coinbase, coinbase pro, etc). Exchanges are known for being hacked and all the funds stolen. Additionally, if your government ever seizes the bitcoin from the exchange you are out of the money also. You need to get the funds into your personal custody at all times. If you are very new and haven't started self custody, I always suggest Bluewallet. You can see the specs of this wallet on their site. Bluewallet.io This wallet I always suggest because it is open source, extremely user friendly, doesn't require any personal information, and as you learn more about bitcoin such as nodes, lightning network, and cold storage with hard wallets (which you are getting into with Ledger), Bluewallet can grow with you. They provide backend node connection, they provide lightning type wallets, they provide cold storage vaults where you pair your hard wallet with bluewallet for long term and secure holding. Don't worry about any of that now. Keep stacking, but just know that this wallet is very efficient and largely beneficial to your learning over the long term without having to constantly switch wallets.

    Great work! Welcome to the bitcoin life! Make sure your funds are NOT stored long term on an exchange (cash app, coinbase, coinbase pro, etc). Exchanges are known for being hacked and all the funds stolen. Additionally, if your government ever seizes the bitcoin from the exchange you are out of the money also. You need to get the funds into your personal custody at all times. If you are very new and haven't started self custody, I always suggest Bluewallet.

  • Extreme delay in transfer using standard fee?
  • Bought Bitcoin - Now What? 😅
    Great question, and the difference is that bluewallet is an opensource well known bitcoin wallet. It is self custody of your bitcoin. You can read about it on their site at bluewallet.io
    I highly suggest using a mobile wallet for this such as bluewallet. You can check their website bluewallet.io and see that it is open source, free, and they have a great rep in the community. Inside of the app you can create multiple wallets if you needed. But start with just one for now. Each wallet will generate a 12 word seed phrase. I suggest bluewallet as it is a mobile phone wallet and it is much harder to launch malicious code on a small phone environment than on a computer to trick people into releasing their bitcoin. It makes it a bit safer. This software is great for beginners and how I onboard everyone I know. It also allows for your growth into more advanced things such as pairing it with a hard wallet and connecting the wallet to your own node if you ever choose to run one. Take baby steps and come back and ask when you decide to move forward to a hard wallet once you feel you need the extra security. For now, just generate a wallet, write down the seed, and hodl the bitcoin!

    I suggest using a mobile wallet for this such as bluewallet. You can check their website bluewallet.io and see that it is open source and they have a great rep in the community. Inside of the app you can create multiple wallets. A separate wallet for each of them. Each wallet will generate a 12 word seed phrase. I suggest bluewallet as it is a mobile phone wallet and it is much harder to launch malicious code on a small phone environment than on a computer to trick people into releasing their bitcoin to a hacker. It makes it a bit safer.

    The amount you are comfortable with holding in a mobile wallet (safer than desktop) is up to you but $1000 in Bitcoin can quickly turn to $5000 or more. There are less expensive hardware wallets like cold card (a bit more complex) or ledger (had user data hacked), or you can try paper wallets (but need to be generated from an OS that has never touched the internet), etc. Trezor is a bit more but we'll established and user friendly. If you want to do a software wallet I would recommend blue wallet. https://bluewallet.io/

    You don't have bitcoin on paypal, you have an IOU for bitcoin that can't be redeemed. They can block you from access to your coin anytime for any reason. Sell your bitcoin (and your ETH) on paypal and transfer it to a real exchange. Maybe cashapp would be fine for your amounts, buy actual bitcoin there (they will let your withdraw) and then transfer it to a mobile wallet where you control the private keys. https://bluewallet.io/ is good.
