My option is that you consider a hardware wallet called KeepKey. As long as you have a copy of your 12 work pass-phrase, you will always be able to recover your coins.
Some people use a cheap smartphone for storage(remove the battery).
I want to trade so i need an account somewhere with some live ammo.
I dont know if i can accept anything without having my friggin license pictured and in their system?
I was able to make the account and i was able to create an address. But this is where i am stopped.
So,are you uploading a copy of both sides of your drivers license, and it getting rejected? You will need to upload photo id for AML/KYC regulations. Unfortunately, at CB, customer service time can take days for a response. CB is flooded with new applications.
If you are interested in a position of 5 BTC, you can trade on the CME. I've been thinking of moving over there, even tho I don't trade. I would deposit it and let it rollover. I know it can be marginable, but I think it is 2 for 1, because of the volatility. Settlement is cash-only.
There is also the Gemini Exchange. I have an account there but I've never used it. I think they do a better job than CB, but I've been with CB for over 4 years, therefore I am established with CB and I don't have any problems with CB.
