Bitcoin is the oldest and most popular cryptocurrency on the market. Back when a bitcoin was less than $300 not many thought that investing in this type of currency was a great financial move. Nowadays, one bitcoin costs more than $7000 and shows no signs of dropping its value anytime soon. This is why some people might consider purchasing this type of cryptocurrency as a way of making profit.

In this guide, I will show the steps you need to complete in order to acquire bitcoins from your Windows PC. The Coinbase website is one of the best places to buy bitcoins as it provides you with secure storage for your digital assets, operates with local banks in 32 different countries, lets you send and receive digital currency with ease, and so much more. Here's what you need to do:

Step 1

Launch your default web browser. Go to the sign-up page, click the "Sign Up" button, and create a personal account.

Step 2

Once you sign into your new account, you can monitor the Bitcoin, Etherium, and LiteCoin exchange rates that are being available in your country (you can change your local currency type by going to Settings -> Preferences). The Dashboard page will give you access to all of the information you need regarding exchange rates.
