HOW TO BUY CRYPTOCURRENCIES
The easiest way to buy cryptocurrencies is from an exchange. There are many exchanges worldwide, some of which may be located in and offer support for your particular country or region.
Some popular exchanges are, but not limited to, the following (zeroconfs does not endorse or otherwise accept responsibility for any purchases made from these exchanges):
Always check that the site you are on is the official website and you are not on a scam phishing site. One way of checking is to look for the secure 'https' and not an unsecure 'http' website address. The safest way is to type in the website address yourself and not click on any links even on Google search results.
There are a number of crypto ATMs appearing around the globe and these conveniently allow you to purchase cryptocurrencies using your credit/debit card or cash. Be aware that these ATMs may charge higher transaction fees and weaker exchange rates than other buying methods.
HOW TO STORE CRYPTOCURRENCIES
Make sure you NEVER send your PRIVATE KEYS to anyone EVER. DO NOT keep large amounts of cryptocurrency on exchanges. Hardware wallets such as the Ledger Nano or Trezor are more secure ways of storing cryptocurrencies.
For best practices, and to ensure your privacy, do use a NEW receiving address each time you receive cryptocurrency. If you do re-use receiving addresses, you may be jeopardizing your privacy by allowing public viewing of your funds at those addresses (similar to disclosing your bank account balance).
