When I purchased my first bitcoin, I used Coinbase. Founded in 2012, Coinbase is trusted, safe, and secure. Signup with Coinbase and get $10 in BTC when you buy or sell $100 worth of BTC. Once signed up you can easily upgrade to “Pro” and have access to trading across supported currencies. You can buy crypto with your bank account, wire transfer, or credit/debit card.
Another easy way to get a wallet and buy Bitcoin right now is by using the Square Cash App. Buy, sell, send and receive bitcoin from within the app. Send funds to anyone with a Cash App account or to any Bitcoin address. Get a banking account and routing number for direct deposits or bank transfers. Get a debit card you can customize yourself! Download the Cash App and get $5 just for trying by entering my code XJBJGBH.
I also like using Uphold. With Uphold they have anything-to-anything trading. You are not limited to specific trade pairs. For example, trade Bitcoin for Gold or Silver for Ethereum all within the app. Get a debit card that links to your crypto wallets on Uphold. Not only can you spend your crypto, but you can spend supported commodities like Gold, Silver, and Platinum in real-time using the debit card!
You know those CoinStar machines where you dump a load of coins into to redeem for cash? Well, you can buy bitcoin at many of those CoinStar machines.
You will need a wallet to purchase bitcoin at most ATMs, but some will print a voucher in which you must go online to redeem. Those CoinStar machines make it really easy to buy bitcoin with cash. Your nearest grocery store with that CoinStar machine might also be a cash-to-bitcoin machine.
