Where to buy Cryptocoins

Cryptocurrencies are generally bought on exchanges. We distinguish between exchanges where can deposit fiat (EUR, USD, KRW, etc.) and exchanges where we can not. The latter type of exchanges require you to already possess cryptocurrencies (ETH, BTC, etc.) Hence, if you are completely new to Crypto you need an exchange where you can change your fiat money for cryptocoins. Examples are: bitstamp.net, coinbase.com, gemini.com or kraken.com.

You will notice that these site don't offer most of the smaller coins. For this we need to open an account on a different (non-fiat) exchange. For example at: KuCoin.com or Exmo.com

Where to store Cryptocoins

With Ledger Nano S, secrets like private keys are never exposed: sensitive operations are isolated inside your hardware wallet within a state-of-the-art Secure Element, locked by a PIN code. Transactions can’t get tampered with, they are physically verified on the embedded screen with a simple press of a button.
