How to Buy and Earn Bitcoin (and other cryptoscurrencies)

Status Update, June 2019, I’ll be updating this page to a more streamlined format to provide a guide and important pointers for purchasing cryptocurrencies.


If you are new to cryptocurrencies and don’t know anything about them, I strongly suggest you read this previous post that has a series of 5-minute videos for beginners explain what bitcoin and blockchain technology is before you purchase anything.

You can also earn cryptocurrency by mining and using online shopping apps.

For mining, the Honeyminer is the easiest way to begin using your laptop or desktop PC to begin mining.  You download the software, register with an email address, and click an icon to begin mining.  The beauty of Honeyminer is three-fold: 1) The software automatically determines what coin to mine based on the hardware of your machine, 2) every day, the miner switches to the most profitable coins to mine (again, based on your hardware), and 3) the payouts are in bitcoin (not in the coin that is mined.)

 

minergate

Minergate is a decent option, but you are paid in the coin that you mine, and you need to be a little technical, and download the wallet of the given coins.  I would recommend using either the Exodus wallet for PCs, or Coinami for smartphones and PCs.

You can also earn bitcoin using the online shopping rebate app Lolli (similar to eBates/Rakuten.)  They are partnered with over 500 retailers.  You can see a list of companies HERE.  You will only need a bitcoin wallet to withdraw earnings (I recommend either Exodus or Coinami.)
