Step 2. Convert your money to Bitcoin

There are many different ways to convert your money to Bitcoin, but these are two of the easiest ways for beginners:

Credit card to Bitcoin

You’ll need a cellphone and your government-issued ID handy (currently 120 countries are accepted), Cubits.com provides one of the fastest ways to convert your credit card to Bitcoin online.

Cash to Bitcoin

You might prefer purchasing Bitcoin with cash if you can find someone nearby who can provide this service to you. Check out LocalBitcoins.com to see if there is someone in your area who accepts cash (or other types of payment). You can find local sellers who are online right away, and you will need to set up a LocalBitcoins.com account to contact them.

Western Union to Bitcoin

If you can’t find a local Bitcoin dealer and you don’t have a credit card, you can also use LocalBitcoins.com to find a dealer who will accept payment through Western Union. Set up a LocalBitcoins.com account to contact each dealer to find out their payment details and instructions.

Your Wallet Address

You will need to provide your Bitcoin receiving address to the vendor that will provide you with the Bitcoin. To find out what your receiving address is in Coinbase, make an account, log in and click on BTC Wallet in the menu, and then Wallet address on the top, right-hand corner.
