How do I get Bitcoin?

While cryptocurrency is often misunderstood as complex and difficult to get into, they aren’t at all difficult to acquire and trade with. In many ways, it’s just like buying stocks or any traditional financial instrument. A common misconception is that you have to buy a whole bitcoin at a time, which is not true. You can buy fragments of a bitcoin (called satoshis, with one satoshi = 0.00000001, or one hundred millionth, of a bitcoin). So whether you want half, one tenth, or five bitcoins, you can get it.

The simplest way is to use our app, choose your preferred payment method, and purchase the coin of your choice.

Secondly, you can start mining Bitcoin, by setting up your PC with mining software and dedicate computer power to verifying transactions., As a reward for your work, you receive newly created bitcoins. Thirdly, you can use a mining service, who, for a fee, provide the hard- and software needed to mine, netting you a revenue without having to invest in hardware yourself.

Lastly, you can go to an exchange such as Binance, BitMex or Kraken.

One important note is that investing in Bitcoin certificates (common on stock exchanges such as Avanza) is not the same as buying actual bitcoins. You trade on the value of bitcoin, but you don’t actually own any yourself.
