This will be the page on how to set up Crypto Currency accounts.

First step is to create a Coinbase account.

Here  (My referral link so we both get $10 in BTC)

Going through all the steps to authorize your account is kind of tedious, but stay with it.

The thing that kind of stinks about Coinbase is you can only buy Bitcoin, Eth, and Litecoin.

Coinbase charges 4% if you fund your account with your credit card which is worth it if you are in a hurry.

The ACH transfer from your bank account takes 7 days for some reason.  But there is no fee.

Wires are faster but there is a $10 fee for incoming money and $25 for out going.

Once you get a coinbase account and it is set up – go to Gdax.com follow the steps there.    They are the same company.  But to buy and sell bitcoin/Eth/LTC on gdax has no fees based on being a “maker” (more on this later) and login with your coinbase username and password.

After you own some bitcoin (BTC) you will need to send it to another exchange the offers other coins.

I like Bittrex.com and Binance.com they have low fees, currently .25% per trade  on bittrex.  Use the Google Authenticator with your account.  It is more secure than the simple texting of a number to you.  Google Play or Apple  <–highly recommend

Again somewhat of a tedious set up and verification system for your identity.

You currently can’t directly put money into Bittrex, everything is in Bitcoin prices, so you need to buy Bitcoin on GDAX and send it to Bittrex.

Once you have bitcoin in Bittrex or Binance you are ready to go!
