Getting Bitcoin

There are tons of options of getting Bitcoin. Here are a couple of solutions if you have a better solution for a certain region please let me know.

Inside the E.U.

I would recommend Bitstamp. Bitstamp is a Bitcoin exchange with free SEPA deposits. Just deposit the money to their account and exchange your Euro to Bitcoin.

Inside the US

  • Coinbase

Coinbase wants to be the Paypal for Bitcoin. Just hook up your bank account and you can instantly exchange Bitcoin.

BitInstant enables you to make local cash deposits for Bitcoin. Just go down to wallmart for instance and have your Bitcoin in your account without problem. There is also an option to deposit using Dwolla.
