Q: Why do we go through 2 different wallets? A: We've found BlockChain to be the best wallet for online transactions, providing high security anonymity and freedom. However, they do not offer a way to "get into bitcoin with regular dollars". You are welcome to use any wallet you wish, but we highly recommend BlockChain for any of your online transactions for sending Bitcoin.
Q: Why do I need to get Ƀ0.055? A: There are transaction fees when you send BTC - these fees are TINY when compared to other methods of exchanging currency online, but they still exist. You just need a little extra to offset your first couple transactions you're going to make.
Q: Can I do it without a credit card? A: Yes, but it will cost a bit more. We found an amazing service that let's you buy Bitcoin with Gift Cards, Western Union, ApplePay, PayPal, Bank Wire, or depending on where you live - with cash! Click Here
