You’re still here! Excellent… It’s time to do the important bit, let me show you how to sign up to Coinbase and lead you by the hand to buy your very first Bitcoin. Exciting times! (Sounds patronising but it’s actually not, I was well excited my first time… I also enjoyed buying Bitcoin as well.)
Note: At this point you should start to have a dislike for Fiat (normal currency). According to all chat boxes on every crypto exchange that you’re going to use from this point forward, Fiat is evil.
Blockchain cryptocurrency… It’s the future, man. Well, is it? Who knows. That being said though it has done pretty well in the past 10 years.
If you’re new to crypto and understand how big Bitcoin (BTC) now is, and more importantly how expensive it is to buy just 1 Bitcoin (of course we’re all in it for the technology, hmm), then you are sure to of heard of XRP and Ripple.
I’m just going to pause here really quickly to explain why I keep using 2 different names for the same coin.
