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 a decentralized store of value.

How do you buy Bitcoin?

First you'll need to open an account on an exchange. There are a lot of exchanges, so do your homework and choose the best one for you. Binance, Coinbase, and Bittrex are some good examples to start with. After purchasing your bitcoin on the exchange, you should transfer it to your own wallet. I can recommend both Ledger and Trezor as two offline hardware wallets that are safe and easy two use.

Ok. Once you have your exchange account and hardware wallet ready to go, you're ready to buy some bitcoin.

The first step is transferring some money onto the exchange. 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. Most exchanges have a section in your accounts for your fiat money. 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. Once you buy Bitcoin, the coins will appear in your account almost immediately. I'd recommend withdrawing your coins to your hardware wallet immediately. The safest place for your bitcoin is in your possession in your own hardware wallet.

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.
