How do I Buy Bitcoin & Crypto? - Pros & Cons of 5 Exchanges

Are you looking to start investing in cryptocurrency and wondering the best place to buy it? Or if you are in the US, are you wondering which crypto exchanges are legal for you to use? Below is a list of 5 cryptocurrency exchanges that, as of this post, are all legal for US citizens. I have also included a quick break down on the pros and cons of each exchange. This is not a complete list of every exchange available to US citizens as there are others, but these are my own personal top 5 based on characteristics such as ease of use, security, fees, liquidity and selection of available coins to trade. If you are not located in the US there is a good chance most of these exchanges are available to you as well, you will just need to check with the exchange and look up your own country's policies regarding the purchase of cryptocurrencies.
As you go through the list please keep in mind, while I do have them ranked 1 through 5, there is not a lot separating them and each of these exchanges offer something a little unique from the others. Everyone's investment goals and preferences are going to be a little different so my #5 exchange here could be your #1 based on your criteria. It is also pretty likely that if you end up wanting to invest in 5 or more coins at some point, no one exchange is going to have all of them available so you will likely need to open multiple accounts anyways. Okay, on to the list.

1) Binance US
Binance US is an offshoot of one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges out there, Binance.com. They created Binance US in response to US citizens being banned from using their main exchange back in 2019. These two exchanges function much the same with the biggest difference being that Binance US has a slightly smaller pool of cryptos listed on their exchange, which currently is a little over 30 coins. Other than that, all of the great features of Binance.com that have helped it become one of the largest crypto exchanges in the world, apply to Binance US as well.
PROS
- Low Fees: Start at 0.10% spot trading fee and goes down from there depending on your trading frequency. You can also save an additional 25% off your trading fees by holding their native token BNB.
- High Trading Volume: Allows you to get in and out of your positions more easily.
- Coin Selection: Currently as of this writing there are over 30 different coins available to be traded.
- Reliability / Reputation: As one of the larger players in the crypto space, Binance is able to offer a bit of security as they are able to throw a lot of money at any potential problems with things like hackers. Binance US puts away a set portion of their earnings every month in a fund that acts as insurance against any funds that may be lost due to hackers. Back in 2019 they had an incident where 40 million dollars of crypto was stolen by hackers and they reimbursed every penny to their customers.
CONS
- Interface: Trading can be a little confusing for those not used to trading cryptocurrencies. While it is not too difficult to learn, a couple of the upcoming exchanges on my list are a little more user friendly for those who are new to the space.
All things considered, right now if I was getting started with Crypto trading in the US, Binance US would be the first account that I created. If you would like to open an account you can use the link below. If you are located outside of the United States I would suggest opening an account on the the original Binance.com exchange as they currently have a wider selection of cryptos to pick from. Below is a link for their sign up as well if you are interested.

2) Crypto.com
Crypto.com is on a mission to be the leader in cryptocurrency adoption to the masses and is trying to bridge the gap between the worlds of blockchain and traditional finance. Along with trading cryptocurrencies they have programs on their app like Earn, Invest, Pay & Credit which you would find with more traditional finance companies. For instance, through their Earn program there are many coins you can earn interest on by locking them up for a set time period. Depending on the coin, how many MCO (Crypto.com native coin) you have staked and how long you keep your tokens locked up for, you can earn anywhere from 2% to 18% interest which a lot better than any bank is going to do for you these days.
One of the best features of Crypto.com, in my opinion, are their great eye-catching, metal crypto MCO reward credit cards. These cards pay you cashback, in the form of their MCO token, for all of your day to day purchases anywhere that VISA is accepted. Depending on which level of card you get, these credit cards reward 1% to 5% cashback on all spending along with other great benefits like free ATM & international withdrawals, 100% cashback on Spotify & Netflix subscriptions and airport lounge access. In order to get your hands on one of these cards you will need to open a Crypto.com account if you don’t already have one. There is good news if you don’t already have one, as new sign ups can get $50 worth of MCO tokens free by using the link and promo code I have posted below. Please note that the $50 of MCO tokens will remain locked until you deposit & stake at least 50 MCO tokens toward the sign up of the particular card you are interested in. If you want to know a little more about these cards you can check out method #3 in my earlier post 5 Easy Legitimate Ways to Earn Free Crypto where I go into a bit more detail on them. However, for the purpose of this post, let's get to some pros and cons of their exchange platform.
PROS
- Low Fees: Start at 0.20% and go lower from there depending on your trading volume.
- Coin Selection: Currently as of this writing there are 53 different coins available to be traded.
- Interface: Easy to use app that is very user friendly.- Customer Service: One of the best customer service programs in the industry if you need any help.
CONS
- App Only: No desktop version, all functions on the exchange must be done via their app.
- History: Founded in 2016 so they are still relatively new to the industry.
Crypto.com is a great option if you are looking to trade cryptocurrencies and also want to take advantage of things like their cash back VISA cards and Earn program that pay you great interest rates as you hold your coins. Below is a link you can use to sign up for a new account. If you are also interested in getting one of their MCO Visa cards, use the link below along with the promo code to get $50 of their MCO token free.

3) Coinbase Headquartered in San Francisco, Coinbase is the largest US-based crypto exchange with about 20 million current users. Like Crypto.com, they are trying to bring cryptocurrency trading to the masses through an easy to use interface and education. One way they try to educate their users is through their Coinbase Earn program where they offer free crypto for watching short educational videos teaching you about the various coins they offer on their exchange. I will not go into the details of that program here, but if you are interested in checking it out I go into a bit more detail on it in my post 5 Easy Legitimate Ways to Earn Free Crypto. Now on to some of the pros and cons.
PROS
- High Trading Volume: Allows you to get in and out of your positions easily.
- Interface: Easy to use desktop interface and trading mechanisms for those new to crypto trading.
- Insurance: Coinbase carries an insurance policy that covers 2% of all assets on the exchange and they keep the other 98% in cold storage.
CONS
- Fees: While their fee structure is not horrible, it is a bit higher than Crypto.com and Binance US. Crypto to crypto trading fees are at 0.50% / bank purchases at 1.49% / credit & debit card purchases at 3.99%.
- Coin Selection: Currently they only have about 20 coins to choose from, however they are looking to add a bunch more soon.
Coinbase is a solid choice for anyone looking to get started in crypto trading. If you would like to open an account you can use the link below which will get you $10 of free Bitcoin as a sign up bonus. Please note that to get the free $10 you must buy or sell $100 worth of crypto within 180 days of signing up.

4) Robinhood
Robinhood is the pioneer of no fee trading for securities which is the main benefit of this exchange. It also is, to my knowledge, one of the few exchanges that allow you to trade both traditional stocks and cryptocurrencies. Technically their stock and crypto exchanges are separate entities, however you can seamlessly trade them both from the same account on their app. This is great for those who would like to get started trading in both crypto and traditional stocks but don't want to open multiple accounts. Or for those who might want to trade back and forth between stocks and crypto but don't want to have to transfer money between accounts to do so. Now to explore some other features of the Robinhood exchange let's get into the pros and cons.

PROS
- Fees: None (FREE!)
- Flexibility: Can trade multiple asset classes (Stocks, Crypto, ETFs, Options)
- Interface: Easy to use app that is very user friendly. Desktop version available as well.

CONS
- Coin Selection: Currently only offer 7 coins that can be traded (BTC, BCH, BSV, DOGE, ETH, ETC, LTC)
- Coin Mobility: Your coins must remain on the Robinhood exchange. You cannot transfer your coins to another exchange or withdraw them to put in your own digital wallets.
With their user friendly interface and no fees, Robinhood is very appealing for those just getting into crypto trading. If you are just looking to buy some of the higher cap coins like Bitcoin and Etherium, this exchange can be a good fit for you. However if you know there are some projects you would like to invest in that are not listed above, you may want to choose some of the other exchanges on this list, or both. If you are unsure at this point if you want to invest beyond coins like Bitcoin and Etherium in the future, it doesn't hurt to start here, get your feet wet and open another account down the road if you have other projects you get interested in. If you would like to open an account you can use the link below to get one free stock with sign up! This free stock will be valued somewhere between $2.50 and $200.

5) Kraken
Kraken exchange is based out of the United States and was founded back in 2011. While there is no specific trait that blows away the competition with this exchange, it does most everything pretty well. Like most crypto exchanges at this point, your funds on there are not FDIC insured, however Kraken does keep a separate fund that serves as an insurance policy and is currently over 100 million dollars. They also show great transparency and compliance with programs like their Proof of Reserves which offers proof that they hold all of the funds that they say they do. Here is quick break down of their pros and cons.

PROS
- Low Fees: Range from 0.10% to 0.26% depending on your trading frequency.
- High Security: One of the best reputations in the industry for security.
- Coin Selection: Good but not great. Currently they have about 20 coins available for trading.

CONS
- Interface: Making trades can be a little confusing for beginners who are not familiar with their format. However with a couple quick tutorials most of you should be able to get familiar with it pretty quickly.
To open an account and begin trading with Kraken use the link below.

THE MOST CRYPTO-FRIENDLY CITIES IN THE WORLD

THE MOST CRYPTO-FRIENDLY CITIES IN THE WORLD
If you love travelling and are also cryptocurrency enthusiasts, who prefers using digital coins instead of cash, there are plenty of cities around the world that accept cryptocurrency payments. But which cities are the most crypto-friendly? 😃

🌍 Amsterdam
The capital of the Netherlands is quite famous for how open it is to cryptocurrency. Amsterdam is home to leading Bitcoin startups, including BitPlay and BitFury. You can also do fun activities, such as visiting the Bitcoin Embassy, the place where the crypto community actively promotes Bitcoin through various efforts. In 2015, Amsterdam opened its famous Bitcoin Boulevard, which is a street where most merchants accept Bitcoin as payment for their services and products.

🌍 Toronto
Canada is known for being one of the most welcoming countries for blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Throughout the past 10 years, Toronto has become one of the world’s most crypto-friendly cities in the world, hosting a number of quite successful crypto enterprises. In addition, there are over 200 crypto ATMs, spread across Toronto. On a worldwide level, this is one of the biggest numbers of ATMs that can be found in a city.

🌍 Prague
Prague is also one of the biggest venues in Europe accepting cryptocurrencies. If you are travelling to Prague, you can easily rent an apartment and pay it with cryptocurrency, pay for your food in many restaurants and purchase many products and services. Moreover, there’s a famous espresso bar, called Bitcoin coffee, where the only accepted mode of payment is Bitcoin. The second apartment in the world that was purchased using cryptocurrency is located in Prague. It was bought in 2017 for 35 Bitcoins.

🌍 San Francisco
The city has almost 200 merchants accepting Bitcoin and approximately 60 ATMs that process cryptocurrency conversions. Further to that, San Francisco is home to Coinbase, one of the most famous cryptocurrency exchange platforms. Many other cryptocurrency and blockchain companies choose San Francisco for their headquarters due to its fast-paced blockchain market and blockchain-obsessed locals.

🌍 Zug
Switzerland has become one of the earliest adopters of cryptocurrencies. If you go to Zug, you can find a dentist that accepts cryptocurrency. Though Zug is a small city and less known as some of the other cities on the list, it is regarded as one of the most technologically advanced cities on a global scale. Zug has also earned the nickname of “Crypto Valley”. A few years ago, Zug even became the first city to accept Bitcoin for paying taxes. It’s basically heaven on Earth for cryptocurrency enthusiasts.

What about your city? How crypto-friendly is it? 😁

Top Ten Cities for Bitcoin Owners

https://preview.redd.it/mhe8tbtmypp21.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8e8600f416ae5c41f6bd7721bd315fda6086bdd4
Many residents of different countries own Bitcoins, but not everyone can use them for their intended purpose. However, there are cities where those who own them can fully enjoy their advantages over other currencies. Analysts ranked such cities.
San Francisco is in the first place. In this city, there are more than thirty ATMs working with Bitcoin and hundreds of stores where they can pay for goods and services. It is here the largest crypto-exchange Coinbase located. In addition, there are many programmers working with cryptocurrencies.
Vancouver is in the second place. The city has more than a hundred stores that accept coins as well as about fifty cryptoATMs. Anyone who owns Bitcoin can easily pay them off and not feel deprived of their rights.
The third place went to Amsterdam. This city is considered one of the most loyal to cryptocurrency. There are dozens of outlets and shops where you can pay, there is also an ATM that works with Bitcoin.
Fourth place - Ljubljana. Despite the fact that the city has just over 250,000 inhabitants, it has 5 cryptoATMs and dozens of small shops that accept Bitcoin as a means of payment. In addition, they can pay in some hotels.
Tel-Aviv is in the fifth place. It has several Bitcoin ATMs, more than sixty stores which accept a leading coin.
Zurich is in the sixth place. Since a large number of banks work here, they decided to install 8 ATMs operating with Bitcoin in the city and residents can pay them in several dozen outlets.
Seventh place was taken by the city of Tampa. Despite the fact that it is very small, there are 13 Bitcoin ATMs and almost a hundred stores where everyone can pay Bitcoin for the goods.
Buenos Aires is on the eighth line. This city has more than a hundred stores where tourists and residents can pay with Bitcoin. There are a few cryptoATMs.
New York is in ninth place. Bitcoin takes several hundred stores and more than a hundred cryptoATMs work here.
London is in the last place. Here you can find more than eighty stores and several dozen ATMs working with bitcoin.
Perhaps in a few years there will be even more cities where residents and tourists can use Bitcoin for their own purposes.

Bitcoin SAVE MY TRIP in San Francisco.

Hi reddit,
My name is Abby, I am a enthusiastic Bitcoin web developer in Taiwan. I love Bitcoin, because it helps solved many human problems in our society because we are so rely on the banks.
Let me tell you a little story with my poor English, it's a story happened in my trip in the U.S. this February:
After a terrible 4 hours flight delay after my Creating Change Conference in Denver, I arrived in SFO, and catched the very last train (BART) to downtown San Francisco, it's where my hotel located(Mayflower hotel, the facility is not bad.). It's the first day of three day stay in SF.
When I finally arrive to the hotel, it's 30 past 12, it's very very late. After the first nightmare on 4 hours delay, here comes the second.
"I am sorry your credit card doesn't work." "WHAT?" "I am sorry, I don't know." "can you try that again?" "I am sorry, the credit card company charge us very time, so I can't do that." "...........uh" "if you would like to check-in, you have to pay in advance". (well, it's 12:30, what's your options?) "alright, I will pay in cash."
Well, as least my wallet can pay for that,so I can checked-in and get my room. But the 3rd situation comes, I only got 10 dollar left in my wallet, I need to stay in SF for another 3 days.
After few international calls to my 2 banks in Taiwan, they said I didn't activated the "international withdraw function" (NOT the international credit card function, so I can still buy stuff using credit card), so I can't withdraw cash in US (it still take with lots fees if you withdraw abroad.)
Bank transfer?It takes two days or more(and I need a bank account). Western Union? I am not so sure how to make it work,and I need to ask someone go to a bank in Taiwan, that still takes a day.
After a little thinking, "Hey, there is Bitcoin!".
So I talk to a Taiwanese friend(who is in Bitcoin Community) how can I do, and he suggested some ideas.
Because I can still access my Taiwanese bank account online, so I called a friend, tell him give me his bank account details, and I transferred the money to him.
I asked him to buy some Bitcoin in Familymart convenience store and send it to me. It only takes half an hour, YEAH!
The next step, I need to buy some US fiat money.
The next morning, I try to find some Bitcoin ATM, first stop, the Workshop Cafe, no luck, the staff said it's moved to somewhere else. Second stop, the Nakamoto's in 20 mission. There 's the Bitcoin ATM(it's the one from Workshop Cafe ), but it seem broken,and no people is there at the stand. (Nakamoto's were day off in the time I was at SF.)
An nice guy who is also work in 20 mission tell me maybe I can go to the local hackerspace called "Noisebridge" and give it a shot, when I got there, just a few people with nice smile and willing to hear my story and ask me to try to post on their maillist. After that, there are two nice Bitcoin guy came to Noisebridge and do the exchange with me. And I even met with the founder of Noisebridge - Mitch Altman.
Although people said SF might be the most advanced place on using Bitcoin, but I still take half a day to have some fiat money. And I didn't get a clear information about Bitcoin accepted shops/restaurants in downtown SF, that's a little pity.
But anyway, I had 3 great days in SF, thanks for the help, Satoshi.
The dollar bills look much nicer because it's exchanged by Bitcoin. HAHA
edited: fix typo (I believe there are many mistakes.)

Bring Bitcoin ATM Kiosks to California!

Hello World!
We are California Cryptocoin and we are a California LLC setting up a network of Robocoin ATM kiosks around California! Our goal, with your help, is to bring liquidity and legitimacy to a rapidly expanding Bitcoin market by bringing these ATMs to you! We are very close to our launch, but we need help with the last step before we can open for business. That being said, this is where we stand:
What this means is that we are roughly $50k short of having a $250k (this includes asset price of machines) net worth as a company. This is the minimum for us to obtain the correct licenses and it is the last obstacle we need to get over in order to launch. So we need YOUR HELP!

Project Blockchain Valley

PROJECT BLOCKCHAIN VALLEY
My name is Morgan Rockwell, I am CEO of Bitcoin Kinetics Inc. Now founder of Kinetics - Blockchain, Automation & Energy. I created the first Bitcoin Operated Service Machine to allow Bitcoin to be used in the real world in all machines & businesses. We are rapidly expanding & growing into new territories, industries and concepts to help build the Bitcoin & Blockchain based industries into a competitive & profitable environment. We have began the process of issuing equity on the NYSE in New York City. We have purchased a new building to house the buildings office & factory. We have made several partnerships with many Bitcoin Business Leaders, Ethereum, Micro-controller & Chip Makers, DIY companies and many more important players in the new technology industries. We now need your help before we are forced to ask help from the banking sector, tyrants or billionaires..
We now need 10000 Bitcoins to create the greatest Bitcoin Based Economy the world will ever see, including the first Bitcoin Town... Ill give you keys to the company, all of the equity, I do not want a dollar.
There will be always be a loan offer out there for the purchase of the main street property of 1000 BTC for immediate purchase & payback with base interest rate of 15% on the 1000 BTC - giving 1150 BTC payback in 5 years or equivalent in USD value of equity in the corporation we are creating to be listed on the NYSE. When that loan contract is fulfilled by someone there will be another 1000 BTC loan contact available within 7 days for someone else to bid on. The bidding price will be based on a lower competitive interest rate and this will be done Over The Counter through personal communications.
We require an immediate range of 7000-10000 BTC to build the entire region into a fully functional Blockchain based industry zone. This will be self sustaining in regards to energy consumption & economic production. A am building partnerships with many smart people, strong businesses and influencers in industry to get these goals accomplished. I need the lending community, the Bitcoin community, the cryptocurrency communities to help make Blockchain Valley become a reality.
Anyone up for that offer? It would be able to change the world if you can contact me & send me that I have contracts ready and waiting.
This is where the future begins.
Along side that move a NEW company is created, to compete with the likes of Google, Apple, GE, Visa & CHASE. It will be called "KINETICS Inc".
Kinetics - Blockchain, Automation & Energy www.Kinetics.cc
KINETICS is facilitator of several Bitcoin & Blockchain projects including:
KINETICS is going to be incorporated in Delaware as a C Corporation. The fully functional business such as #BitcoinKinetics, #BitcoinAcademy & #Axiomity will be managed, funded and operated by KINETICS Inc.
KINETICS Inc & Bitcoin Kinetics Inc will both be located at our new shop in Upper Lake, CA in Lake County.
9450 Main St, Upper Lake, CA 95485
This buildings rent is $800 per month, to be reduced from $200,000 price for full cash purchase of property. I have plans to purchase the entire building full cash in the next 90 days, until then i'm moving in 7/13/2014 SUN & paying rent to own for 90 days. I have been told I can purchase the entire block including over 20 different store fronts, garages, a bank, a post office, a saloon, a large antique shop, several window display store front shops and even large areas of land for crypto mining data centers, fields of solar panels & wind generators, as well as the fact that all of California's fresh water is within 2000 yards of the building in several lakes. There is over 100,000 sq ft of empty store & office spaces on the main street. All of it has been personally offered to me.
We are committed to partnering with #TeslaMotors to convert the old gas station into a Tesla Super Charger Station equipped with SuperChargers, solar power & a lounge to busy the drivers as they charge their vehicle. We will be creating a Bitcoin ATM friendly lounge where customers can purchase all things Bitcoin, Hardware & even use Bitcoins at all the local shops. Ill be putting www.CryptoCrates.com in one of the shops on the block giving the worlds first Bitcoin Record Store a physical location.
There are now many possibilities with this HUGE opportunity here before us all. We are in talks with #Ethereum and several lenders, venture capitalists, bankers & Bitcoin investors to make this dream of a physical Bitcoin world a reality. We can turn Upper Lake into the start of what will be the home of #BitcoinTOWN, a place where all Bitcoin Business will want to come and have their offices. Eventually growing into a "#BlockchainValley"
There is so much money involved & needed for this long term 100 year plan, In the next 10 years up to 10,000 BTC will be needed to pay:
If you build it, they will come.
There is much to be done, its is all the start of jobs, money & Bitcoins value going to the moon. Building something in the real world with Bitcoins lending technology.
I have over 15 years of construction, civil engineering, electrical engineering & business development. I am the best human on earth to get this mission accomplished and to get the job done. We are in a state ware Bitcoin is now legal tender, the time is NOW. I can make everything happen, i talk well, i don't sleep and work non stop until the goal is reached, i have networked with everyone from the rich to the poor, to the entire Bitcoin community. This is an opportunity to be within 1 1/2 hours of San Francisco and 2 hours from Sacramento. This deal with Tesla Motors gives me the ONLY charging station in this North California region giving the loop from San Francisco, Mendocino, & The i5 to Sacramento a complete loop allowing the Tesla vehicles to travel up into the Forest Area. This will bring HUGE revenue, HUGE partnerships & many many new Bitcoin users and Kinetics customers will all be flocking up from San Francisco to the new land of Bitcoin...
All of you should help us and ill personally make you a very rich Bitcoiner, and you will save the world from fiat, from centralization & from tyranny...
To purchase the main street property only need 1000 BTC as soon as possible with 1150 BTC payed back in 5 Years. That is a 15% payback on a 1000 BTC loan that can be bid on by lenders If you can even participate in this loan in fractions, partial or full, please contact us ASAP as moves need to be made immediately. This allows us to acquire the main drag of Main Street, Upper Lake, CA and all of its shops.
We will convert it into a Solar Roadway/SolarCity filled block, with Bitcoin ATMs on every corner, Bitcoin Laundromats, Bitcoin Bank, Bitcoin Friendly Shops, A Blockchain Node in every business, A Tesla Charging Station right in front of the 1920s original Gas Station, a Restaurant Called Satoshi's Grill, with 5 star Chefs already ready to join the team, a record and music shop that takes all crypto currency, The Bitcoin Academy giving a local education center for all to access the newest information, technologies and educators, a Coffee shop friendly to all things Bitcoin & The Blockchain, giving rise to Bitcoin Gift card usage, lounge environment with data center tools. The entire town will have a 4G tower system with the first going behind the Gas Station in the yard & FREE WIFI, LIFI & MESH networking covering the entire area.
We ask you the #Bitcoin Community for funding before we ever ask a Banker, so please help us before we are forced to go ask Goldman Sachs for fiat... The community can gather 1, 10, 100, 1000 or 10000 Bitcoins to make Bitcoin usable in all machines. As a loan of 15% would be very helpful to us and to you in circulating Bitcoin & funding this community venture.
Contact us if you are willing to support this new venture as time is of the essence, moves need to be made NOW, and your Bitcoin's future depends on people like us & you giving Bitcoin real world use. Help us bring the future into the now...
THE BITCOIN TOWN / BLOCKCHAIN VALLEY PLAN
These 10 Phases will take money, people, passion and motivation. Time will only get in the way if you don't become involved with both your Bitcoin, Your Mind, & Your Sweat, Blood & Tears. We will help make this a reality, but first comes capital, participants & the plan. We are all here to help grow into a better world, Bitcoin gives us that last chance for humanity to stand up and shake off its slack. If we can come together and show the world how this technology works in the real world, the planet will see, it will feel, it will hear and know Bitcoin as reality. Over night the world can change if we put out foot down, take a stand, and create the world as we see it to be. People are at war, starving and suffering in the most horrible ways, all I personally can do is fight the good fight with Bitcoin in my hand, there is a chance now for us to have sanctuary and a place to build our plan of attack from. We now have shelter, not just for Kinetics, but for the entire Bitcoin community of users, businesses & investors. You all now will have a safe and friendly place to live, work, shop, learn and grow...
I thank you for your time and your care for the world. Thank You.
