Easy to buy currency
Easy to buy currency. Was some contridiction im the amounts i could purchase in one day - different reponses in the faq sections - one said aggregate of 5k per day and the other said 10k. Also was no reference to the amount of transactions i could do in a 24hr period. I was purchasing currency on behalf of other but was unaware that only 2 transactions could be performed in a 24hrs period. So some notice of would be good as wellSteven John Whyburn
