fyi I'm JUSTTTTT starting out. I looked up some videos on how to buy burst. Using what I saw I decided to make a test run with $5.
I went to coinbase and bought $5 worth of bitcoin... which charged me an additional $1 transaction fee (20% wtf). OK so I have spent $6 and I have $5 worth of bitcoin. Then I sent it to Poloniex and it took forever so I check on it the next day, and the bitcoin arrived in my POLO account, YAY.
But, not YAY because, it said I have $1.54 worth of bitcoin... so somewhere, $3.46 of bitcoin was stolen or charged as a transaction fee or something... that's 69%... wtf!
Then I exchange my bitcoin for burst and I have $1.53 of burst coin... ok 1 cent transaction fee I'm OK with that.
Then I send it from POLO to my burst wallet. and FINALLY i end up with... drum-roll... $1.47 worth of burst.
Does all this seem normal?... I kinda feel like I was mugged. I definitely don't want to get into crypto if that's the scam.
