All right, so you want to purchase some Bitcoin! Where are you going to buy it? It’s not as easy as you would think to answer that question. First, and maybe the simplest way is to find an exchange where bitcoin can be exchanged (most, if not all of them).

Let’s begin by learning how to restrict your quest. Second, look at Bitcoin pairings, that is, which currencies can be used to buy your bitcoin, crypto and/or fiat. You need to move to the next exchange if the currency that you want to use is not matched with Bitcoin on a specific exchange.

Again, the majority of exchanges, especially the larger ones, offer a comfortable range of currencies coupled with BTC. Finally, look at the web site’s security features. Here we explore some of the best platforms to buy bitcoin.
