My first mistake making a withdrawal.

I received my first income in steemit and they paid me on steem I was so excited because it was a good payment. However I haven’t any idea how to withdraw and covert it into dollars (or my local currency).

I watched a lot of videos from people of my city teaching how to withdraw steem or any other crypto and I found an "easy" way to do it. It was by an ATM, so you sell your crypto and receive cash, pretty easy isn’t it?

But... it was a nightmare making this withdrawal. First, there aren’t many crypto ATMs on the city and the nearest from me was about 15min by car, it’s not bad but when I arrived to the place, the ATM was out of cash. I called to the company and told me the only one that had money was about 30 from me.

I went to that store and I yes there was cash available. But I had to sign up and received a sms confirmation in order to use it. No kidding but that sms was like 3 hours to receive it. Once I received it I sent from my wallet the money and everything was correct. But I didn’t received any cash because they said there weren’t enough confirmations for transactions.

I called again and I didn’t receive a response, I was so stressed haha, i didn’t know what to do. They called 3 days later saying that I sent the wrong amount of money because they charge an amount for commission.

So basically they only paid a half of the amount I requested and they keep the other half. I felt so robbed but I didn’t know anything about it and the videos I watched didn’t say anything about commissions.

I don’t wanna make a bad review about that company but I’ll never gonna use it again. I’m still looking the best way to withdraw my cryptos but at the moment I won’t do it.

That was my first bad experience in this world but we learn from our mistakes, this is what life is about. Thanks for reading and see you soon!
