How to buy Bitcoin
The most popular way to buy Bitcoin by far is through Coinbase. Furthermore if you sign up through my promotional affiliate link then both you will receive $10 (£7) of Bitcoin if you choose to deposit just $100 or more!
Once there, fill in the some simple registration details and confirm you're not a robot :)
Click on the Buy/Sell tab on the top menu.
Now select which coin to buy. At present, there are four currencies available to buy through Coinbase. We will choose Bitcoin.
Next you can choose which payment method you want to use to buy your Bitcoin. You can use Bank or wire transfer, however, many people prefer to use a credit/debit card to begin with. This starts with a weekly limit of £500 to begin with but you can verify your payment account later to increase this limit.
Enter the amount you wish to buy in your local currency.
Finally, hit the 'Buy Bitcoin button and then click 'Confirm' on the next screen to finalise your order
