How to buy Bitcoin

The steps are as follows:


Step 1. JOIN A CURRENCY EXCHANGE
Step 2. GET VERIFIED
Step 3. BUY BITCOIN ON A CURRENCY EXCHANGE

Optional: TRANSFER BITCOIN FROM THE COINBASE EXCHANGE TO YOUR WALLET

IN ORDER TO GET THE CRYPTOCURRENCY OFF OF THE EXCHANGE YOU WILL NEED A SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE WALLET.

I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend that you get a hardware wallet. Software wallets are easily compromised. Thats just it. Think of it like this, you don't walk around with $50,000 in your pocket 24/7 when that is all you have do you? No, you put most of it away, and whatever you think you might need, you take only that with you. For safety, and convenience reasons.

So with cryptocurrency, you do the same. Put away most of it, and if you DO want to have a software wallet, that is OK...but ONLY put what you could stand to lose, in case your phone gets hacked or whatever. If it is lost, no big deal, you can still restore your wallet and get your money back. It is actually very, very easy to recover lost and stolen Bitcoins etc, provided you still have your saved passphrases.

With all that being said! Here are the two options:

Option A. GET A HARDWARE WALLET

Option B.  GET AND SET UP A SOFTWARE WALLET ON ANDROID
