We accept Bitcoin.
Bitcoin is being called Gold 2.0. It's been around for over 10 years and isn't just for the tech savy crowd anymore. It is becomming more and more mainstream and is actually very easy to buy and use. If you've ever used Venmo or Apple Pay, Bitcoin is just as easy.
The cryptocurrency space has exploded in the past few years and there are literally thousands of "coins" out there. I will only advocate for Bitcoin on this page, because it is the largest and most secure of all the cryptocurrencies. Firms like Fidelity, Goldman Sachs, Arc Invest, and many others have added Bitcoin to their balance sheets because of it's security and unique properties as an incredible store of value.
How do you buy Bitcoin?
First you'll need a wallet. We use crypto.com but there are a lot of other wallets out there. Crypto.com is a custodial wallet, meaning they will provide the security for you. This works exceptionally well if you're not a technophile. You'll need to download the app, go through their onboarding process , and you'll be good to go.
You can use our referral link and receive $25 in their token for signing up - https://crypto.com/app/t6grsc9fv5
If you're more tech savy, there are a number of non-custodial wallets out there where you hold your own bitcoin and your own keys. If you want to begin buying Bitcoin and other Alt Coins as investments, I'd highly recommend you get a secure hardware wallet. There are several good options, so do your research.
Ok. Once you have your wallet, you'll need to buy some Bitcoin. I'll use Crypto.com in this example, but the same principals apply to almost every other wallet.
The first step is transferring some money into the app. You can try using a credit or debit card, but usually your bank will only allow you to charge a few hundred dollars (for security reasons). Most people use a wire transfer. The crypto.com app has a section in your accounts tab called 'Fiat Wallet'. This is where you will send your cash from your bank account. You'll probably need to call your bank to iniatiate the wire transfer, and the money usually arrives in 1 or 2 days. It's very easy, but you'll need to follow the wire transfer directions exactly.
Once you have money in your 'Fiat Wallet' it's time to buy some Bitcoin. Buying Bitcoin is free in the Crypto.com app for the first 30 days. And once you buy Bitcoin, the Coins will appear in your wallet almost immediately. Once you have your Bitcoin in your wallet, you can send it anywhere.
If you're interested in learning more about Bitcoin, I'll include some resource links below. But I would highly, highly recommend you do a little reading and some online research into the topic. Bitcoin was developed in the wake of the 2008 Housing Crisis as a better form of money. Learning about Bitcoin isn't just about how to use it, but more about why Bitcoin was invented and why people are so passionate about it. Today (September 2021), Bitcoin has millions of users and has a 1 trillion dollar market cap. Investment banks, corporations, soveryn wealth funds, and regular people like you and me are choosing to buy and hold Bitcoin for the future. Learning about Bitcoin can be a little overwhelming. And when we're talking about money, it can be absolutely terrifying. But many, many, many people just like you and me have taken their first steps into understanding this new form of money. The infrastructure is being built today to take this technology mainstream, and we're still in the very early days of adoption. Feel free to call me if you have any questions. I'll do my best to help.
Books - The Bitcoin Standard by Saifedean Ammous, Digital Gold by Nathaniel Popper
Podcasts - 'What Bitcoin Did', 'Bitcoin Audible', 'The Pomp Podcast' and 'Unchained' are four of the best.
Youtube - There's a lot of channels that focus primarily on price and trading, but Scott Melker does a decent job of covering other areas related to Bitcoin.
