The industry leader when it comes to purchasing Bitcoin is Coinbase, hands down. They are a legitimate FDIC banking institution and offer the best rates at 1% when you link a checking account and 4% when using a credit/debit card for purchasing Bitcoin.
They also offer a wallet on their website and a mobile app. The steps for acquiring Bitcoin and sending are the following:
- Sign up for an account. They're going to ask for an ID and your occupation information, but you can just put 'self employed'. They're a bank, so they're required to capture this information just like any bank when opening an account. Once you have Bitcoin, transactions are anonymous.
- After setting up your account, you'll need to link a bank account or a credit card. Once you've done that you can purchase Bitcoin.
- Once you have Bitcoin, you can use their wallet to pay the Bitcoin invoice we provide during our checkout process. If you download their mobile app, you can scan the QR code we provide during checkout to automatically import the Bitcoin address.
