New Bitstamp user here. NY loc.
Cannot use a credit card to purchase crypto
Cannot use Chase or Schwab via BitStamps “Plaid” connection to make ACH deposits
The only method to get USD onto BitStamp is via purchasing USDC through PayPal.

XRP/USD is not a trading pair so I would need to spend some on fees in order to get my USDC to XRP anyway.

Wondering when this will be easier for me. Wondering when support will tell me something other then that is not possible at this time, while other users can use their entire platform.

    The problem might be your NY residence. NY requires a “Bitlicense” for crypto companies to do business in NY, and many Companies decide not to pursue one. Not worth the trouble.

    I had my accounts closed by several exchanges a few years ago when NY passed that requirement.

    I was a victim or bitcoin investment scam and all I can say is these scammers are good at what they do..In my own case I was allowed to withdraw small amount which I believed was to build my trust … they sucked me dry and never got my capital after all was said and done..I lost a ton of asset, when I reported to local authorities I was told since crypto is untraceable, there is nothing they can do about it, couldn’t get any help from them until I contracted the service of professional ethical programmers [ they hacked into the bitcoin address I made payment to and recoup my stolen crypto. They showed me the transaction history of these scammers I was in shock, they saved me from depression..if you are looking to recoup your crypto send a dm to Professional charge back commission on Insta. They got 30,000+ followers.
