To begin your journey into crypto, you must first buy a beginner level coin. For you nerds out there, think of this as choosing your starter Pokemon. The current starter coins are Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin.

 

  

 

While there are tons of places to trade coins, there are only a handful of websites to buy your first coin with fiat currency (USD, Euro, Yen, ect).
