How to buy Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies?
Install a wallet and a Bitcoin address.
To buy bitcoin or make transactions with this virtual currency you must use a wallet and a bitcoin address.
For this you will need to install a wallet software.
These programs allow you to create and store bitcoin addresses on your computer.
Once you have installed your wallet and created your first bitcoin address, you will need to get the bitcoin, by exchanging Euro or any other currency in two different ways:
Through exchange platforms or
By going through sales sites (broker).
(Know that it is also possible to invest in a minor or rent power and thus participate in the creation of currency through the site Coinmama or sell objects or services against this virtual currency)
On an exchange platform, bitcoins can be acquired according to the principle of supply and demand.
These are also platforms that allow today to set the official price of bitcoin.
You will therefore go on this platform, a purchase order, with a maximum limit that you will have set.
If your offer is at the market price you will immediately receive your bitcoin, otherwise you will have to wait for sellers to accept your offer.
To pay for the purchased bitcoin you will usually be asked to make a SEPA transfer (the disadvantage being the delay time of several days).
A simpler way to get bitcoin is to go through sales sites: brokers. Brokers are companies that sell the bitcoin they bought or mine at prices close to market prices. They can offer the price they want, because you buy them directly your bitcoin without going through the principle of supply and demand. To do this you must create an account. Choose the amount of bitcoin you want to buy. Pay your bitcoin. And so you will receive your bitcoin on your wallet.
