Looking into trading crypto but don't know how to get started? This is the tutorial for you!

After seeing tons of users asking how to get in I decided to type up an easy step by step tutorial. For now I'm going to avoid strategy and just show everyone how to get started.

I should also preface by mentioning I'm based out of the USA. If you're from a different country things may vary a bit. Due to the rising demand of Iota I'm going to use that as my example.

Step 1: Purchase Bitcoin

I purchase my Bitcoin from Coinbase.

To create an account you can also use my referral or just check out their website. I like this site because it is extremely easy to use, plus has a nice dashboard and a mobile app. This makes it easy to get on and instantly see how much crypto you have and what it's worth. You can currently purchase Bitcoin, Etherium, and Litecoin on Coinbase.

But to start, get Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the currency you will be using to trade on exchanges. I have also heard good things about purchasing Bitcoin from but I have personally never done so. Another thing worth mentioning is that Coinbase will charge a small fee usually around $1.50 whenever you make a purchase so be prepared for that.

Step 2: Create an account on an exchange

So if you're looking into the altcoin Iota I recommend Binance.

You can join using my referral code or visiting their website.

I personally use Binance for Iota and for most other altcoins.

Step 3: Adding Bitcoin to an exchange

Now that you have purchased Bitcoin and created an account with Binance you're ready to start trading! But first your exchange account is going to need some Bitcoin.

Remember, Bitcoin is the currency used on most exchanges not dollars. If you want to buy Iota make sure to send Bitcoin to Binance. I prefer Bittrex for everything else

Sending Bitcoin to Binance

First log into Binance.

In the top banner select Funds > Deposits Withdraws.

This shows you all the coins available to trade in Binance. Find Bitcoin in that list and select the "Deposit" option on the right side. Make sure you are depositing to you Bitcoin wallet and NOT Bitcoin Cash or any other wallet.

If you send to the wrong address your funds will be lost.

You will get your own BTC Deposit address similar to what you see in the above image.

This is the address you want to send your Bitcoin to from Coinbase.

Now that you know your Bitcoin address it's time to log back into Coinbase and send some funds to your Binance account.

Select the accounts tab in the banner and select the "Send" option in your Bitcoin wallet.

This will bring up another menu for you to paste your Binance Bitcoin address into. Choose the amount of Bitcoin you want to send and select "Send".

It usually takes about 10 minutes for the funds to transfer.

Sending Bitcoin to Bittrex

Sending Bitcoin to Bittrex is basically the same process.

The process is very similar in Bittrex although it has a much more simplistic view.

In the upper left corner select the Bittrex logo. This takes you to the homepage with a list of coins available. You can also use the search feature from this page.
