    Default Buying Bitcoin. Recommendations.

    Buying bitcoin is an effing pain in the arse.

    You either have to verify your identity, cock size and heritage or pay through the bloody nose. (Which defeats the whole point)

    Can anyone recommend a decent experience on purchasing said coin that is painless and not extortionate ?


    I found a way to purchase via paypal without identifying anything but you lose about 25-30% (on small amounts).

    Any info appreciated and maybe this should be maintained if people use the info regularly and stickied, but lets see what happens first.

    I use Coinbase, there are fees but it's very simple, not sure what the fees equate to in percentage terms.

    There are a lot of bitcoin atms around, you can pay into a wallet with cash, really simple to do, no id required. some atms have better rates than others so look around. If you look on coinatmradar you can check rates easily.

    Thanks to theodotcom

    Yes have used them in the past and tbh they seem like they only decent one. Was hoping for a bit of competition lol
    From memory though you do need to use bank transfer which is great unless you have lost your Barclays pin device or whatever its called like me. Will have to order another.
