Recently i had to send some money for my cousin who is staying in other country He was in real trouble . It was urgent money he needed . It was less than 100$ . I went all money transfer exchanges asked for sending money as he need urgently  Every where i found same answer we cant send less than 100$ . Even if we want to send  there will be huge process. Beneficiary should have that countries bank account even he is traveller . Minimum there was at least for 500$ and also it will take 2 to 3 days for transferring this money to beneficiary account.
Some were i found answer we cant send money apart from our blood relations (I mean sibblings and Parents) . For that they required proof

Thats when i realised the real potential of Bitcoin . Then after Came back to crypto space after long time . I got real trust . Then after market also started to move towards bullish run (Coincident) . Now i am feeling proud that i am in crypto community.

You probably tried to send some kind of bank transfer. In such transactions  sometimes banks make minimum transaction amount of $100, fixed fees about $30 and extra % of the total amount. That obviously seem retarded but there is also a lot payment systems like paypal or some money transfer systems like Western Union, which have a lot of similar services with smaller fees. Anyway, crypto is not the only solution for that problem. People invented many things to make small international transfers easier.

That is why using cryptocurrency in sending or transeferring money is more convenient than using a third party such as banks or any other remmitance company. It saves you time and money, you will not need to pay bank fees, pass necessary documents or details, with crypto all you need is an address.

This is where Bitcoin excel against traditional remittance service.  Transaction is fast, takes about a second once you transfer the  amount of BTC, confirmation may take 10 minutes depending on how soon the next block is mined.   Fee is very minimal compared to remittances and you can send your Bitcoin anytime, anywhere in the world.  Though some altcoin can be transfered and confirmed faster, but, there is none like Bitcoin that is most supported by exchange platform where the receiver can be able to convert BTC to money.

Thats when i realised the real potential of Bitcoin . Then after Came back to crypto space after long time . I got real trust . Then after market also started to move towards bullish run (Coincident) . Now i am feeling proud that i am in crypto community.

It is a good thing that you realized the obvious.  Welcome back to crypto community Smiley

I wouldn't say it's necessary but bitcoin and crypto is good as an alternatives to the current remittance services we have. So can sent it anywhere in the world as long as there is internet.

That's why many remittance services globally thinks that bitcoin is a threat. But for us, it means that we have options without any third party in between and it's fast as well (no need to wait for 3-5 business days for clearing.)

Bitcoin is actually the most convenient remittance that I have ever used. I have the same experience as well where I got so hopeless but I had Bitcoin and things went well.
During this time, I appreciate the importance and convenience that cryptocurrency is giving us.
It functions and offers better services than any remittances around the globe.

Yes, Western Union and other remittance companies charge an arm and a leg to the poor in third world countries (more than 10% in some cases) and are ripe for losing market share with the emergence of cryptocurrencies. One thing that holds cryptocurrencies back is the lack of blockchain infrastructure and acceptance in third world countries, but slowly this is changing. We need easy conversion of cryptocurrencies to fiat currencies all over the world.

Your choosing right choice bitcoin is the fastest way to transfer fund if the virtual currency legally accepted the country where did you want tp sent funds.
Then use banks or any remittance center accepting digital currency to convery it into fiat.

That's good to know about the entry into the crypto community with some reason. Banks and exchange services truly got their limitations and with the same they'll make common people suffer. I personally hasn't suffered with such immediate transfers, but I do have preferred using bitcoin for the same.

You send some bitcoin to your friend,but he will have to convert that bitcoin into fiat,and this is a risky and expensive process,if you are a newbie and you don't know what to do.
Bank wire transfers are so damn expensive for no reason other than the greed of bankers.
Bitcoin's competition in the remittance industry might force them to lower the wire transfer fees.

That is crypto potential as long as there is a remittance center.cwhat your blood relatives need to do once he received your crypto is a way to exchange it to cash and send the cash to a remittance center to withdraw.

You mentioned it already, we need Bitcoin or crypto to provide better service to the paypal.
The high fees, the slow processing period will be eliminated when people will adopt with bitcoin because more businesses then will accept bitcoin.

Also, we the bitcoin ATM could help, and hopefully their numbers will increase as the adoption is increasing.

Speed and low fees are only a part of the positive functions of which the cryptocurrency has.I do not have a great need to transfer money to another country,but if such a need arose I would definitely use bitcoin for these purposes.

Western Union and Xoom AFAIK doesn't require a minimum amount to be sent. Also, what will your cousin do once he/she received the bitcoins? What if there are no bitcoin ATMs around to do fast cash withdrawals? This is where it gets tricky IMO, as your cousin still needs to get validated on that country's exchanges before getting some cash. If the country is OK enough to have merchants accept bitcoin then that's fine. But what if that's not the case? Bitcoin would be worthless and he/she will still need to go through the rigorous process of getting KYC'd.

Western Union and Xoom AFAIK doesn't require a minimum amount to be sent. Also, what will your cousin do once he/she received the bitcoins? What if there are no bitcoin ATMs around to do fast cash withdrawals? This is where it gets tricky IMO, as your cousin still needs to get validated on that country's exchanges before getting some cash. If the country is OK enough to have merchants accept bitcoin then that's fine. But what if that's not the case? Bitcoin would be worthless and he/she will still need to go through the rigorous process of getting KYC'd.
He could always sell his coins through a P2P platform like LocalBitcoins and transfer FIAT directly into his bank account within a matter of minutes. There are exchanges that don't require KYC for small amounts too if he wishes to go that route.

Not a problem if you ask me.

Minimum there was at least for 500$ and also it will take 2 to 3 days for transferring this money to beneficiary account.
Just the delay of 2 to 3 days before you receive the money is enough to dismay me from using bank wire transfer. Western Union is better but it has a very high fee. That is also the reason I am using crypto to send money to my relatives.


Thats when i realised the real potential of Bitcoin . Then after Came back to crypto space after long time . I got real trust . Then after market also started to move towards bullish run (Coincident) . Now i am feeling proud that i am in crypto community.
Welcome back to crypto community. What you realized as a potential of Bitcoin is just a tiny speck of what it can really do. That is why I am investing in bitcoin because of its massive potential.

I've never had a problem sending money worldwide with traditional methods plus not many people are even able to use bitcoin in their city. This will change in the future but right now its easier to use banks to send money across the globe since fiat is widely accepted.

Recently i had to send some money for my cousin who is staying in other country He was in real trouble . It was urgent money he needed . It was less than 100$ . I went all money transfer exchanges asked for sending money as he need urgently  Every where i found same answer we cant send less than 100$ . Even if we want to send  there will be huge process. Beneficiary should have that countries bank account even he is traveller . Minimum there was at least for 500$ and also it will take 2 to 3 days for transferring this money to beneficiary account.
Some were i found answer we cant send money apart from our blood relations (I mean sibblings and Parents) . For that they required proof

Thats when i realised the real potential of Bitcoin . Then after Came back to crypto space after long time . I got real trust . Then after market also started to move towards bullish run (Coincident) . Now i am feeling proud that i am in crypto community.

This is great, it will really help the money remittance on its easiest way and no need for the remittance center because the transfer can be done P2P, the only thing that the receiver will do is to convert its cryto to fiat which is very simple and easy nowadays that no one will question you with those amounts.

It's not just necessary but it's the imminent future for the remittance industry.

However, I am not sure if bitcoin will be the gamechanger, but definitely some virtual currency will take over the remittance industry and that's where Ripple is trying to establish their business to cover this exact gap.

Either these remittance providers will have to move to some kind of blockchain supported currencies for cheaper and faster transactions, or they will become extinct. Every business idea comes with an expiry date and they need to evolve continuously to sustain the competition. From where I see, Virtual currencies will become a norm in remittance business within few years!

You did not say if you could or could not send money to your cousin. How do you tell a story and forget to tell the end of the story?

bitcoin is very good, but we still depend on the banks to spend bitcoin in the real world, unless you live in the European Union or the United States and you have bitcoin debit card
