This is step 1. Here is a link that if you use and deposit $100 or more, you and I will get $10 of bitcoin for FREE. Coinbase will allow you to pretty easily buy Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin and now as of 12/20/17 also bitcoin cash. When I first made my coinbase account I evenly disbursed the money (a small amount) I wanted to invest into the 3 coins. Since then the investment tripled and thats where number 2 comes into play.
Binance is a bit more tricky and can seem overwhelming but its the Mothership of crypto currency at this point in terms of an exchange and the dashboard it offers as well the ability to buy SHIT tons of alt coins. I don’t believe you can just hook up a credit card or bank to binance, instead I transferred my bitcoin from coinbase to binance and from there started buying some ALT coins. Let me know if you have any questions or trouble. I def wouldn’t invest more than you don’t mind losing, but there are definetely some plays out there in the crypto currency world. Here is a link to binance where I’m pretty sure if you use it, I get hooked up with some bitcoin, like the coinbase deal..
Good luck and let me know if you end up buying any 🙂
