So first question .. If I buy from coinbase some btc ,can I send that directly to a casino for btc deposits?

Or must I send to my coinbase pro account and then from there use as a casino deposit?

From what I understand, you never want to send Bitcoin to a casino from your coinbase account. Instead go coinbase --> wallet ---> casino.

But isn't the wallet just in coinbase?

Can I buy btc on coinbase pro and then just send it from there?

I was always under the impression that when it was gdax you could send it from there but it's CB pro now, is it still the same??

Not sure if this is still the case, but i know coinbase banned some accounts for sending bitcoin to casinos. Which is why i recommend getting a 3rd party wallet to keep your bitcoin in to send to casinos. I use blockchain.org.

Ive never bought Bitcoin on block chain.org... I've always used coinbase or gemini to buy Bitcoin and use blockchain as a wallet. I use it to store my btc and send it out/receive it if I win.

I guess for me I feel it's just inconvenience to buy on one app, send to another, then send to casino.

I'm not a btc guy so I'm guessing it's just how it's done but I don't understand why there's not a more convenient way to do it all especially if someone deposits 2 3 4 times in a session

So I sent the money via coinbase to brango .. And I'm just sittin here with the funds not yet showing up.. What gives, I thought btc was all fairly instant? I mean my CC deposits are instantly there, why are btc deposits so slow?

Is there a way to speed up this process?

Right here
I believe that Brango's method is a manual one, meaning someone needs to credit a customer's account, either upon notification from coinbase that a bit deposit has been made, or else upon being prompted by a depositor. I simply contact chat and ask them to check for it, and they either find it and credit me, or else it hasn't been confirmed.

Well both extreme and brango had to do the same.

I just find it a bit of an inconvenience,, I'll fire out a handful of deposits with my visa debit.. And with btc I buy, send, wait 10 to 15 mins then get chat, then can spin... And I like to keep firing away without any hold ups
