How to Buy and Sell Cryptocurrencies

If you decided to invest into cryptocurrencies then we have compiled a short list with the most famous and approved online exchanges.

It is important to know that there are generally two main categories of cryptocurrency exchanges.
Those who allow you to deposit FIAT currencies (like Euro, Dollar, etc.) and those who only allow to deposit cryptocurrencies.
Usually the exchanges who support FIAT currency deposits support only very few cryptocurrencies. Typically they support the top 5 currencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and so on.

When you enter the new area of cryptocurrencies you may want to invest some FIAT money to purchase your first cryptocurrencies, so those exchanges are your starting point!
If you have bought cryptocurrencies you can transfer them easily to any other exchange where you can trade them with a larger amount of other cryptocurrencies.
