How To Buy Cryptocurrencies – Buy and Sell Altcoins


Use Changelly.com to Invest in Blockchain Assets

Keep track of your digital asset portfolio with CoinTracking

Technical traders should use TradingView for price analysis

Note: Changelly uses your email address to send you receipts to help you keep track of your trades.  If you don’t want a Changelly account, you can enter a fake email address and you will still receive the altcoins you purchase.

You can find wallets to store these altcoins and digital assets at the bottom of this page.

We suggest using Changelly because they do not hold your assets or limit your ability to spend your money.  When you trade with Changelly your assets are sent directly to your personal wallet that you control.  If you trade altcoins on the following digital asset exchanges you do not truly own your assets and you could lose them at any time.   We highly suggest trading with Changelly and maintaining ownership of your private keys!

List of Altcoin Trading Platforms

You can buy and sell cryptocurrencies and blockchain assets on all of these websites:

Exmo

Coinexchange

Livecoin

Liqui

Poloniex

WARNING: Poloniex is a leading altcoin exchange but is extremely understaffed.  You will not be able to withdraw more than $2000 worth of digital assets per day unless you verify your identity.  The current wait time to get verified is over 1 month so do not deposit any assets in excess of $2000 if you need them back soon!

Most altcoin trading platforms are easy to use.  Just signup with your email address, then setup 2 factor authentication with your cell phone.  A majority of these websites will let you trade with no identity verification, just deposit bitcoins.  If you want to buy cryptocurrencies with a bank account, signup at Bitfinex.  Use your bank to deposit your local currency, which will be converted to USD, then buy altcoins with USD.  You will need to verify your identity to trade blockchain assets with USD, so most people trade cryptocurrencies with bitcoin.

Changelly.com makes it easy to buy and sell crypto currencies.  Follow these simple steps:

  1.  Choose bitcoin or an altcoin to pay with
  2.  Choose which coin you want to receive from Changelly
