10 Websites to Buy Bitcoin-like Cryptocurrencies

In 2009, Bitcoin created a buzz being an altogether new currency that needed no banks or middlemen for transactions. This digital currency got the most attention from traders, who intended to get rich by trading Bitcoin. And those who did manage to invest in time are laughing all the way to the bank, given that the price of Bitcoin reached a record high of $16,601.77 in December 2017, according to an article on VOX.

If you too are interested in buying Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency, the most common way to do so is to download a broker app, such as Coinbase. On these platforms, traditional currency, such as the US dollar, can be exchanged for Bitcoin, using credit or debit cards. You don’t even have to buy the digital currency as a whole. You can buy a small percentage equal to the value of your cash investment.
