Unfortunately direct USD to IOTA isn't available yet, you will need to buy another crypto-currency first, transfer it to an exchange that trades IOTA and trade it there. The best/cheapest way to buy IOTA differs from moment to moment and can be found on https://iotaprices.com/ - This includes instructions on how to do so. Buying Ethereum is currently ...
How to Purchase IOTA in the US
Overview on how to purchase IOTA in November of 2017 in the US. For the sake of simplicity I am going to use Ethereum (ETH) as an example. Bitcoin (BTC) could also be used here (w/ higher fees).
Create a Coinbase Account (recommend 2-factor authentication)
Create a GDAX Account (owned by Coinbase, same market)
Link a new bank ...
Your goal is to instruct Bitfinex to broadcast a transaction to the tangle. One that sends the IOTA balance Bitfinex is storing for you (under their seed) over to an address generated under your seed.
What is a seed
A seed is the password you use to manage your balance on the IOTA network. This network is like a database of password-protected balances ...
After five days, there is almost zero chance that it get approved by a new transaction because the tip selection algorithm will select recent transactions. According to an IOTA dev (on slack), if the transaction isn't confirmed in less than one hour it will probably remain "pending" forever (or at least up to the next snapshot because it will be forgotten).
There are several questions in there. However I think they're are connected enough to handle them as one SE question.
Will every IoT device will have their own wallet with their own seed,
or how is this planned?
That's not feasible since not every device has the ability to calculate hashes or to store a seed securely. Devices that can do both can use ...
Will every IOT Device have its own seed?
I recommend you take a look at this question that was already asked before.
Will we ever run out of seeds?
No. There are so many possible seeds that this will never be an issue. The number of possible seeds is unimaginably high. A human brain has difficulties when dealing with big numbers and that's why you are ...
First off, you don't store IOTA in KeePass, KeePass is a password manager and is unrelated to IOTA. IOTA is stored in the Tangle, which you can access using a seed and a wallet.
So the steps for withdrawing your IOTA from Bitfinex are the following:
Install IOTA light wallet following this guide: https://iotasupport.com/gui-lightwallet.shtml
1) Buy BTC or LTC from CoinBase
2) Transfer BTC or LTC to CoinSpot
3) Buy IOTA with BTC through CoinSpot
4) Send IOTA from CoinSpot to your IOTA wallet
(CoinSpot is an Australian exchange you might be more comfortable using as a US citizen than an Asian based exchange)
When you clicked on ATTACH TO TANGLE, you just created a new address from your seed and attached a 0-value-transaction to the tangle. You can receive Iotas to addresses which aren't attached to the tangle.
The "Invalid response" error is displayed whenever the full node your light wallet is connected to sends an unexpected response. This can happen for ...
That's annoying but you have to wait for their withdrawal window to open. As far as I know it has NOTHING to do with a bug on IOTA's end. Network is doing just fine, people are able to withdraw from other exchanges.
Could you quote what they say about that issue being a bug?
When you transfer iota to bitfinex, you have to distinguish between 2 things:
first you transfer iotas to your deposit address.
second, bitfinex transfer iota from your deposit address to his wallet.
Consequently 2 transactions occur, and you have an influence by reattaching or promoting only on the first (the second is handled by bitfinex, so if their ...
The volume being traded is at unprecedented levels today, and at the exact same time, the network is being hit with a spam attack. Therefore, it seems likely that binance is being overwhelmed in their network.
I dont know the first part of your question but that somebody generates the same seed as somebody else is nearly impossible.
Compared to the universe there are approximately 10⁸¹ particles existing and there are approximately 8x10¹¹⁵ seed combinations.
The best way to generate a Seed is via Keepass (Windows) or KeepassXC (Linux).
Very important is to change the seed after creation, so you don't fully rely on the generation algorithm. The advantage over the Linux terminal is, that you don't have to copy/paste it. You can store it directly and safly in Keepass.
For newbies I recommend following sites:
I think you should buy some bitcoin or ether on any exchange, and then You can buy IOTA tokens on Bitfinex.com or www.binance.com. Is what i did actually I've bought some ether on coinhouse.com and then use it to buy IOTA on bitfinex
At the moment there are no exchanges that exchange USD for IOTA. Your best (also fastest and cheapest) method would be to exchange USD for LTC on Coinbase, then send the LTC to an exchange that trades LTC, BTC, and IOTA such as Bittrex or Binance. Once your LTC is moved from Coinbase to the other exchange, sell the LTC for BTC, then use the BTC to purchase ...
