Why do you use Bitcoin Cash (BCH) as the default currency in /r/Lebanon Discord?

Even though we would have preferred to use BTC, the fees for Bitcoin are high, transactions take a lot of time to get confirmed and, most importantly, it doesn't make sense to send and receive small amounts (<10$) with BTC. BCH doesn't have all these issues, it has a huge community and a lot of support.

How can I get USD with my BCH or crypto?

The easiest way is to sell your crypto for USD using peer to peer groups. People usually prefer to buy and sell the stable coin USDT so we'll have to exchange our crypto to USDT before starting the sale.

  1. Sign up on Binance
  2. Withdraw your money from Discord to Binance
  3. Exchange your BCH to USDT
  4. Sell your USDT peer to peer using LebBTCmarket.com or Localbitcoins.com

For  people living outside Lebanon:

You can directly transfer from exchanges like Kraken to your bank account.
