Altcoins can be purchased in different ways. Most commonly, users obtain Bitcoins or Ethereum first and then convert them between different exchanges. This is easier than it may sound! If you have never bought altcoins before, follow our guide.
1. Choose a Gateway Exchange
Register at a gateway service — a fiat-to-crypto platform that lets users buy cryptocurrencies with fiat. Note that deposit and transfer fees vary, and some platforms may not be available in your location. If you find the altcoin you want listed, you can buy it directly.
