coinbase help

I bought bitcoin using coinbase. When I try to send donation, the site says that the bitcoin address for DBG is not valid and I don't know what to do. I tried copy/paste and hand entering the address.  Can someone help me?

I used another computer and I was able to send it. Not sure why I had a issue with the other one. Anyway, I sent my email address with it too. I hope it goes thru okay.  Thanks!

Thst was my suggestion firstly, secondly, use a different wallet, doesn't take long to set up.

This is really confusing. I created a wallet (because I thought I had to) on Blockchain. Then created an account on Coinbase and purchased Bitcoin.

!) Do I need Blockchain wallet? I still haven't figured out how to get my Bitcoin into Blockchain?

2) It looks like I can just send my forum donation directly from Coinbase?

Thanks a heap!!

What is a network fee? Is it going to cost me $16.30 to send a $20.00 donation?

It appears that now and the near future using services like Coinbase to purchase bitcoin is going to be very expensive (ex. I bought $25 worth which netted me $23.29 however to move it from Coinbase will cost me $16.71. Sorry but that's freakin ridiculous. Vanilla Gift Cards, Moneygram or even Western Union is much cheaper.

Would seriously love to donate, but can't do it via bitcoin right now. I await an alternative method (or a severe decrease in bitcoin transaction fees) and hope it's very soon so I can continue to support about the greatest forum on the net!

There may be an option to make the transaction slower, thereby saving you on the transaction fee. I'm not too familiar with coinbase, but I suspect you could send it within 50 blockchains as opposed to 3 (just an example).

I'm pretty sure you're correct, but I don't think Coinbase gives that option. Using Coinbase was my 1st mistake, but stuck with it now. If anyone knows of a way to slow down in Coinbase please let me know.

Hopefully the $15  donation sent via coinbase just now will work.  Out of the $30 worth of bitcoin bought in January, my account showed $18 now.  I guess the high rollers can make these things profitable,  but it's not something I care to deal with.  😝@PTFC
