Seems to have all the major currencies but is slow to verify. Using this for my altcoin buying.
Lower fees, faster verify but only etherium, BTC and BCC
I'll copy and paste info from previous posts I've made that might assist you, your friend and the constant influx of new crypto traders. Ignore what you feel doesn't apply to you.
You can buy bitcoin using a credit card at Coinbase but you'll lose a lot of money to fees. Even doing a bank transfer costs you 1.49% in fees but the fee for using a credit/debit card is 3.99%. Some might also suggest Local Bitcoins but the price of bitcoin is higher there and there are exchanges that have cheaper fees. Local Bitcoins does offer more anonymity because trades are P2P, however, people will charge you a big markup. If you want true privacy then Monero is the cryptocurrency that you're after.
If you want to avoid paying high fees and you are trading in USD, AUD or NZD then use Independent Reserve. The fees start at 0.5% and become cheaper because there are volume discounts. You can also buy ethereum there and it's a good place to sell any bitcoin cash if you have any. They're adding more altcoins later this year. You can fund your exchange account via electronic bank transfer (net banking) or you can use Poli Payments which are faster ($3.30 fee though). If you want/need a referral code then use USJSPW
Kraken is popular with European traders and if you are funding your account with Euros then maybe try Kraken.
Also, if you start trading large amounts then buy a hardware wallet such as a Ledger Nano S, Keepkey or Trezor. It'll help keep your investment safe from hackers. Look up the Ledger Nano S and Keepkey. I have both. I got my Ledger Nano S from one of the official Aussie resellers (Coinstop). With regards to software wallets, check out Mycelium and Electrum. My hardware wallets will work with those software wallets too.
Another piece of advice. Make sure you write down your "seed" when you setup a wallet. Do not write it on your computer and store it there because you're asking to have your funds stolen. Write it on paper and hide it somewhere safe. Do not let anyone else see this seed otherwise they can steal your funds. You can also use said seed to recover your funds if your phone, computer or hardware wallet get lost or stolen.
Do not trade bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies using Paypal because you are asking to be scammed.
Also be very careful about downloading lots of random apps and plugins on your smartphone and computer. There are plenty of dodgy apps out there that are designed to steal your cryptocurrency from you.
It is highly recommended that you setup 2FA features to keep your exchange accounts safe too. Google Authenticator is really good to use. When you set it up then make sure you write down the key and keep it safe otherwise you'll be in a really shit situation if you lose your phone or it breaks or something. It's also better than using your phone number as a 2FA method because there are numerous instances of people having their SIM cloned and having their exchange accounts emptied or a crook social engineers someone's phone provider to make account changes which ultimately ends up with someone having their exchange account hacked too.
I hope this helps you.
