How do I buy bitcoin?

Congratulations! You’re on your way to owning a piece of the future. Before you get started, it’s good to know a few things:

  • You can buy a fraction of a bitcoin. Whether you want to start with $10 or $1000, fractional bitcoin means you don’t have to buy a whole bitcoin all at once.
  • You need to provide your ID. We use your ID to verify your account and to comply with AML (anti money laundering) regulations just like any other financial institution you use. These regulations make it harder for bad actors to use crypto or Blockchain.com, and to protect your identity. 
  • You can store your bitcoin or send it to a Rewards Account. Once you buy your bitcoin, you can simply store it in your Blockchain.com Wallet or send it to a Rewards Account.  

First time user? Buying bitcoin is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

1. Verify your identity and upgrade your account to Silver or Gold level.
