Bye Paypal hello Stripe and crypto for new payment gateway

UPDATE: I am now using Stripe instead of Paypal.

In case you have not heard, Paypal is in the business of screwing people over. After 10 years, I will be moving off of it onto both Stripe and Authorize.net via my CRM provider, Keap Infusionsoft. This CRM option is more for high ticket pricing which might mean I need to start charging in Canadian dollars. They make the rules, not me but would still love to be paid in US dollars.

Here is the problem with Paypal:

New PayPal Fee Structure Shows Why We Need Crypto and Bitcoin


Plus their customer service sucks. As a result, I will be getting all current members to sign up to the Analytics via the new Stripe I will be setting up in coming days. I will be still on Paypal but nowhere as active as I used to be.

I am hoping the world moves to crypto currency as well as transacting will be offering steep discounts for that. You know there will be very very low transaction fees with no middle man ruling what I do with my digital currency. The future is here and it is now!

Breaking news: Federal Trade Commission recommends not to use Java.

 

Hold the presses: Do not use Java in your live trading?

 

It is important to understand that your LIVE trading account is as important as your bank account. The only real difference is that most likely your bank account is either protected by regulation or insured by the government. What about your trading account? What happens if it gets hacked into? Will you be protected?

 

So why would you use one of the top three riskiest technologies in your algo or automated trading? As a result, I have finally found a solution using LIVE Interactive Brokers with C++ and the IB Gateway for better security and privacy. In fact I made a whole video about this.

I used this helpful tutorial to get this working

Installing Interactive Brokers IB Gateway and TWS API for Linux

Note my OSX home directory was /Users/quantlabsnet/ib/IBJts/samples/TestPosix

A reference to the C++ POSIX PDF http://www.interactivebrokers.ca/download/newMark/PDFs/APIprintable.pdf

NOTE: I may need to stick with the Java API option as there are so few C++ POSIX real world examples. I am not interested in experimenting with this.
