Again, thanks for analyzing this. So, in trying to help my associate deal
with his Skrill into Cryptos, I found that (as he is in Europe) using BitPanda
is likely to be one of the best ways.
The central issue with Skrill --> BitCoin would be that Skrill transactions
are “reversible”; however, BitCoin transactions are “irreversible” and that
is the main reason why the two mix like “oil and water”… However, BitPanda
does permit Crypto purchases with Skrill, and I think you may need to
waive the “reversibility” of the Skrill transaction…
Here’s an article I found, wherein the BitPanda option, to me, appears
to be the best one.
[EDIT] BitPanda is not available to U.S. persons; this is European only.
For U.S. persons facing the problem of Skrill --> Crypto, maybe there
is a solution in the article cited below…
Skrill’s own “internal option” is, as @Clint pointed out, pretty useless.
