    Stick with coinbase because it is easy to use for new people and has an app.

    When you install any BTC client, it creates a key for you. That's your BTC address. You can create as many addresses as you want for free, that's how people keep it anonymous.

    Then you can either mine BTC (no longer profitable) or buy it somewhere. You can also buy other cryptos and trade for BTC.

    Those guides are great starters used them myself.

    I do however recommend bitcoin laundry service like bitmixer.ch since you can't always trust where and what type of coins you got in the end.

    You can either download the BTC client or use Blockchain.info.
    If you are new, I'd suggest Blockchain.info, secure enough. If you go for offline client, you'll have to keep your private key secure, a few backups of your wallet at different places. You'd also have to make sure you don't have a virus or spyware. You'll get your BTC address, this is like your bank account number.

    You can then use this chart: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin/#markets to check where you can get cheapest BTCs (if the exchange is available at your location).

    As far as I know, to use any of the exchanges to buy or sell BTCs, you'll have to verify yourself with documents. Best place to discuss on BTCs is bitcointalk.org

    And, when it comes to buying and selling with BTCs, NEVER trust anyone. BTC, once sent, is irreversible.

    And don't leave your BTCs in exchanges once bought (transfer to private wallet), exchanges get hacked all the time and you may lose everything.

    Always stored your bitcoin in blockchain.info

    Never stored it in any 3'rd party platform / exchange like coinbase, bitstamp and soon on.

    Only transfer from blockchain.info to any 3'rd party when u make a decision to withdraw/convert it into $$$.

    [Why they are many!!] Its like asking why there are so many banks who transact in USD, too many loan providers, too many credit card companies,

    Heck apart from financial why there are some many proxy providers isn't the core purpose of all proxies the same? Just like the core purpose of bitcoins is the same,

    So i guess my point is if there is a service or a good or anything else involved and your audience is interested in purchasing it, You will see a lot of sellers for that service and there will be a lot of competitors.

    Go to VirWox . com, fund your account, then buy "Linden Dollars", then exchange for BTC. You can even use Paypal.

    Get laid??? I've got kids older than you dude so I don't need to get laid, no we can't just go around spamming our shitty sites because BHW will just turn into a freeforall spammers playground.

    In future, read the rules and stop promoting your site.

    A mod will be along to delete your links anyway, you may just escape with a warning rather than a ban!!!

    I'm perfectly happy, no problems from my end except when nooby tards come along thinking they can rewrite the rule book to suit themselves!

    If you get banned good luck getting back in because I guarantee you will be banned every time.
