Buy Bitcoin

How-to: Buy bitcoin

Bitcoins are purchased through online exchanges, or in other words online marketplaces where people from all over the world can purchase bitcoins with different fiat currencies like USD or with even with Altcoins.

There are many different exchanges but I will show you the best ones for specific circumstances.


LocalBitcoins was the first exchange I ever signed up for. It’s great if you want to use payment methods such as Amazon gift cards or even cash. See my guide on how to buy bitcoin with LocalBitcoins here

Coinbase is one of the biggest & most trusted exchanges. It’s very user-friendly and you can buy up to $750 worth of Bitcoin with a debit or credit card up signing up. See my guide on how to buy bitcoin with  a debit or credit card on Coinbase here
