Licensed Canadian Crypto ATMs and Exchange

How do I buy cryptocurrencies?

“Cryptocurrency exchanges” are platforms that allow you to buy, sell and trade cryptocurrencies.

The most common way to buy cryptocurrencies is through an online platform that allows you to buy, sell and trade cryptocurrencies, called a “cryptocurrency exchange” or an “exchange” for short. An exchange will typically act as your online brokerage. 

A Canadian exchange will allow you to deposit Canadian Dollars straight into your account via Interac e-Transfers, online bill payments, or wire transfers.

Lesson 07

A Canadian exchange

Let’s assume you deposited $100 Canadian dollars into your account via an Interac e-Transfer because you wish to buy bitcoin. You log into your account, land in your dashboard, click on the “Buy/Sell” Page to convert your $100 CAD to bitcoin.

That’s it! It’s that easy, quick and painless. While that’s great, it’s still important for you to know the other options available to you when it comes to buying cryptocurrencies. 

Bitcoin ATM Machine

A bitcoin ATM machine is like a regular ATM machine, but it doesn’t ask for a pin number. Instead, it uses a QR code from your cryptocurrency wallet app. This code will prompt the ATM machine to send bitcoin straight into your wallet. Of course, you will have had to deposit cash into the bitcoin ATM machine as a first step.

Buying Bitcoin in Person

Some people prefer human interaction. That’s why some bitcoin businesses offer brick-and-mortar stores where you meet with a person from their team and they will walk you through the buying process from start to finish.

Buying Bitcoin Privately

For people that value privacy, they can meet up with friends they trust to buy bitcoin from them. LocalBitcoins.com also offers a marketplace where you can set your own buy and sell rates for bitcoin, and then meet in person to finalize the purchase. Whatever your preference is, make sure you do your research and know what you are investing in. If you’re meeting a stranger in person, it may be wise to meet up at a police station or a bank where there are guards and cameras (for security purposes).
