Buy Bitcoin WITH a Bank Account


In this lesson you will learn the basics of how to buy bitcoin from an online exchange. If you’re a beginner, I highly recommend starting with Coinbase. Coinbase is one of the most popular exchanges around the world because it’s very easy to use. They currently support over 100 countries. Check the Resources area below to find out which countries Coinbase supports.


If Coinbase is available in your area, I recommend setting up an account. In some areas Coinbase may only allow users to access the wallets and not the buy/sell trading platform. Even if all you can do is use the wallets, it’s worth setting up an account. Coinbase makes it very easy to send crypto to other Coinbase users anywhere in the world with only their username.  

Since I am in the United States, these instructions will be based on US Dollar (USD) fiat currency.
