A guide on how to best stack Sats in Europe

(as easy and private as possible)
1/ It should be clear by now that #stackingsats and HODLing Bitcoin is the way to go. Especially after the @TFTC21 episode with @american_hodl.

This is a step by step guide on how to best #stacksats with @GetBittr. (Europe)
2/ First you will need to create a completely new wallet. Do *not* use any other old or already used wallet, since that would damage your privacy. Use this new wallet for @GetBittr *only*.
3/ I recommend using @wasabiwallet or @SamouraiWallet to create a new wallet, because you want to mix your coins before sending them to your cold-storage (best: @COLDCARDwallet).
How to mix and securely HODL your Bitcoin is covered in my other guide.
4/ After creating your wallet and confirming phone number and E-mail on @GetBittr, you'll come to this screen where you press "Enter Extended Public Key".
5/ Here select "Other Wallet".
You don't want to use your Ledger or Trezor for two reasons:

1. This wallet should be separate from your other Bitcoin storage (Bittr only)

2. You can't mix your coins with hardware wallets
6/ Now you'll need the zpub of your wallet. In Wasabi this info can be found by clicking on "Advanced" and then on "Wallet Info"
7/ Now you can copy the ZPUB. Do *not* copy the XPUB.
In the example on the Bittr website you can see that you need the zpub.

(That's because Wasabi is using the BIP49 standard and is not backwards compatible)
8/ After pasting your zpub and clicking "Check Key" you get shown three addresses.
9/ To check the addresses, create three new addresses in Wasabi and check if the addresses in Wasabi match the addresses shown on the Bittr website. If they do, everything is fine and you can continue. If they don't match, check if you copied the right key (zpub)
10/ If you still have problems you can DM @GetBittr for help.
11/ That's basically it. After that you get an IBAN to send money to and a payment description to include in your transfer. Now you don't reuse addresses when #stackingsats, because your Sats will be send to a newly created address every time.

Hope this helps.
12/ If you have any questions, feel free to DM me and I'll try to help.

Hope some people can share so everyone in Europe gets to know how to privately stack Sats.

Thanks you
@giacomozucco @stephanlivera @MartyBent @BitcoinErrorLog @dergigi @hashamadeus @wiz @MrHodl @HillebrandMax @nvk One clarification: Only use the wallet you shared your xpub/zpub for Bittr. Do **not** mix in the same wallet. Send the coins to another wallet and mix them there. (Thanks @nvk for pointing out that it could be misunderstood)
