How to buy Ethereum

The easiest way to buy Ethereum (i.e. Ether) would be through one of the cryptocurrency exchanges across the world. You can research about your favorite exchange company and just buy ETH with credit card, bank transfer, Paypal, Payeer, etc. depending what services the exchange offers.

As some samples, you can work with CoinSquare (Canada based) or Coinbase (U.S. based) to purchase your desired amount of ETH. Here are links to the step-by-step guides for these exchanges.

    You can retrieve your ETH address from your Ethereum wallet.
