There are a few ways to purchase bitcoin, exchanges, in person meet-ups (localbitcoins), and through mobile apps.
The simplest way we’ve found is through a mobile app called Newton, it supports both IOS and Android devices and can be found in the app store.
Once you’ve downloaded the app all you need to do is follow the steps to connect your bank account and then you can purchase bitcoin – it should take about 5 to 10 minutes. Once Bitcoin is purchased it will arrive almost instantly in your wallet account in the Newton app. We highly recommend you transfer this Bitcoin out to a mobile when able to do so (depending on amount purchased, for large amounts we highly recommend using an offline/cold wallet like Ledger or Trezor).
