This is freakin'' ridiculous!

A simple withdrawal from the ionomy exchange - recommended by many Hivers - of $11.22 costs $10.42 in fees!

Using Blocktrades is no better at $10.40 - albeit a flat fee for all amounts.

At least Blocktrades receives HIVE directly from your online HIVE wallet, converts it to your choice of crypto, then deposits into a personal wallet address of your choice.

Right now, I opt to use Blocktrades because of the added convenience of its conversion and transfer services.

But what I really want is an alternative to this ridiculous ETH and ERC20 paradigm.

Contrary to popular belief, fully capable ETH 2.0 IS NOT "right around the corner".

As soon as I find a viable platform that doesn't cost >65% of my principal simply to move my own cryptos from place to place, I'm performing an expedited, phased migration.

About the Author:

image

Believing that school was too boring, he dropped out of High School early; only to earn an AA, BS and MBA in less than 4 years much later in life – while working full-time as a Navy/Marine Corps Medic.

In spite of a fear of heights and deep water, he performed high altitude, free-fall parachute jumps and hazardous diving ops in deep, open ocean water.

After 24 years of active duty, he retired in Asia.

Since then, he's been a full-time, single papa and actively pursuing his varied passions (Writing, Disruptive Technology, Computer Science and Cryptocurrency - plus more hobbies too boring or bizarre for most folk).

He lives on an island paradise with his girlfriend, teenage daughter and two dogs.
