Nobody’s got time to be a super-geek. That’s why getting started with Bitcoin takes just four easy steps.

1

Download a wallet app for your smartphone (we recommend Airbitz, which is available on the App Store and Google Play Store)

2

Register an account on a Bitcoin exchange such as Digital World Ventures or Bit Trade Australia

3

Deposit money into your exchange account (usually via cash deposit at a bank branch)

4

Purchase bitcoin from the exchange and withdraw it to your address displayed in the wallet app
