The best cryptocurrency exchanges with ratings from user reviews.
We are often asked how to buy Bitcoin and cryptocurrency with fiat money such as Euro or USD.
The most popular way to buy Bitcoin and cryptocurrency is to open an account with a cryptocurrency exchange. Once you have created an account you will be able to fund it by a bank transfer. Some exchanges also accept debit cards but most credit card issuers do not allow them to be used to buy Bitcoin.
In the early days of cryptocurrency exchanges were unregulated and investors’ money was at risk of loss and theft. Today, most exchanges are regulated and you should chose a regulated exchange in a jurisdiction that you trust. Regulated exchanges may allow you to buy and sell small amounts of cryptocurrency immediately but if you want to trade larger amounts you will need to supply identity information. This is because exchanges must comply with KYC and AML regulations (Know Your Customer and Anti Money Laundering).
