Step 1: Aquire Bitcoin or Ethereum

There are several exchanges to buy Bitcoin and Ethereum on.

The reason we have to purchase this way is because most cryptocurrencies are only traded on Bitcoin and Ethereum pairs. This will be further explained in step 2.

Coinbase is a very beginner friendly US based exchange, that sells cryptocurrency to most countries and all US states. Expect a 1.49% fee on bank transfer purchases, and a 3.99% fee for credit and debit purchases.

Coinmama is another option that focuses on credit and debit card purchases. Coinmama is great because they have higher debit and credit card purchasing limits than Coinbase, as well as instant delivery. Coinmama’s fees are around 5.5%.

Bitpanda is an exchange that also focuses on credit and debit card purchases. Their fees are between 3%-4%, and only sells Bitcoin and Ethereum to European countries.
