How to Buy Bitcoin with Credit Card

Purchasing Bitcoin (BTC) has been made a whole lot easier with the new upcoming technologies such as Wire Transfer, Cash App and Credit Cards. There are a few exchanges supporting this purchase and Bitcoin of America is one perfect example. This platform allows its users to buy up to $599 using their credit cards. Also, the platform offers same day settlements.

Most exchanges require that users own a digital wallet. Therefore, you might need one before you can buy BTC. A digital wallet is a software program that stores private and public keys and at the same time interacts with various Blockchains to allow users to send and receive crypto coins. Before you can use BTC or any other cryptocurrency, you will need a digital wallet.

A Bitcoin wallet can either be in form of an App, an electronic device or a website. There are different types of digital wallets;

  • Hardware Wallets –such as the Ledger Nano S or TREZOR
  • Hot Wallets –these are wallets that run on an internet-connected device
  • Cold Wallets –these offer offline storage for Bitcoins. They are often stored on platforms that are not connected to the internet.
