First thing’s first, if you’re going to dabble in a new currency well you’re going to need to keep it in a wallet. Makes sense, right?
The quickest and most user friendly wallet to setup is CoinBase. It works much like PayPal and allows you to Send/Receive BitCoin payments as well as Buy/Sell BitCoins. Start by setting up a Coinbase account HERE <– use this referral link to get $10 of FREE Bitcoin*
Their site is perfect for those new to BitCoin and not too into the technical side but rather looking for a quick and easy setup.
Once you’re signed up,
1. Click Account Settings on the LEFT side bar.
2. Click BitCoin Address at the top menu.
3. Click the + Create New BitCoin Address button.
You’ll see a new BitCoin address pop up below.
