How To Start With Cryptocurrency – Short Guide

If you don’t have experience but you want to learn and start trading, this article is for you!

First you need to buy Bitcoin or Ethereum to begin, I recommend ethereum because the transaction process is faster than bitcoin, Litecoin also works!

Pick a website for buying. I’m using coinbase (You can use the link and when you spend $100 (€86)  you will get 10$ worth of bitcoin)

Why Coinbase? This is the easiest platform where you can buy crypto. It’s made for beginners!

1. I have Bitcoin / Ethereum now what?

For the people who bough cryptocurrency from coinbase now head to pro.coinbase.com otherwise skip to part 3.

2. Deposit

Click on the deposit button, choose the amount and you are ready to go.

3. Website Exchange 

If you search the web ,you are going find a lot platforms for cryptocurrency exchange and literally for every single website there is a negative and positive comments. However I’m using Binance. Don’t worry just follow my lead in the pictures below after account creation!

Congratulations! You bought cryptocurrency! But don’t freak out if you cant find your crypto. It takes some time for the transaction to be complete.

From exchange to cryptocurrency wallet

First you need hot or cold wallet to store you cryptocurrency.

Differences:

Hot: The hot wallet is like checking your bank account status. Its vulnerable, even though you have more than one verification. If you plan to use small amounts of currency, go for the hot one. People keep small amounts of crypto in hot wallets, when they want to trade fast or for purchasing stuff.

Cold: It could look like a flash memory or strange little device but it is configured to work only when is plugged to the PC. Its safe because its offline even though you have virus on your laptop.

Wallet conclusion: Hot wallets are connected to the internet, while cold wallets are not. Active traders have both. However when I started buying and selling crypto, I bought cold wallet. ( Ledger Nano S )

Of curse you can put a wallet adress to other website exchange or a person. Be careful what address you are sending to and are they supporting ADA? Always do a double address check before sending. DO NOT BLIND SEND!
