Buying Steem With PayPal

in #spt2 years ago


I did buy steem few times, but it is a bit complicated to get to steem here, and you have to go through bitcoin or similar. And you need to buy "bigger" sums. You can't spend few $ a week to buy steem. In my head i always had an idea of buying few steem per week. Today i did not buy coffee, i buy few steem... Few days ago i seen a post from @ackza of buying steem with paypal. Well not really steem but :) it is an option that i was not aware is possible. Buying packs on @steemmonsters through paypal and selling cards on the market for steem. So an option to buy steem for 2$ through paypal sounded interesting.

Decided to give it a go.

I had an idea to sell pack by pack and see what would the price of steem would be when i sell those 5 cards and divide steem that i got with that 2$ that i payed.
After the first pack sell i got 3.094 steem so the price of steem was around 0.65, not really great. With the next one i was near the price that you can get it on the market.

After few days of doing it, i seen that a lot of it is luck of what cards you got so i stopped calculating :D

Yesterday (or today early in the morning) i finished playing a tournament ( i did not play for ages) and after that i decided to spend my 2$. And this is what i got:
You can imagine i was happy with what would be steem price when i sell those :D i know that it was just a dumb luck but now i can buy some more and know that my average steem price is below the actual price :D

This is much easier if you don't play @steemmonsters, because now i have a hard time selling some cards, i want to keep them :D

So you can buy steem through paypal, kinda.


wow!!! two legendaries in one pack! you're so lucky man! i wish your luck would rub off on me! hahah

really lucky :) but i feel that is a compensation for all the rusties and genies i got from the daily quests :D

haha i've had my fair share of rusties and genies too!

I was given cards early on and since I have never played the game I learned how to sell them for Steem. I have bought more packs and sold them for more Steem and wish I would have kept track but have been happy with this easy way to purchase Steem.

it is easier to do so when you don't play. it is hard to sell the cool ones when you do 😁
