    Of course with the huge influx of Crytpo newbies that are coming in since the popularity of BitCoin is growing rapidly I figured I would hop on this bandwagon as well! There's one problem though, and it's that I'm not 18...

    Now not being 18 never stopped me before. First being partnered with YouTube I found by joining with a Network you can kinda fake/not fake your info and they will accept you and pay you through their method generally PayPal. I made my first PayPal then and of course lied about my birth year which did last until recently when I went onto eBay.

    Now I have a Business PayPal setup so I can do both Shopify and eBay through my mother's name (yes with her permission), but unfortunately, she isn't as kinda and does not understand much about Crypto and doesn't feel very safe with letting me register under her name.

    So after searching for an hour on Google, I was hoping to find other young people who also wanted to get into investing and then eventually found a method of reaching the goal.

    Please divulge your method so I can share with my niece (17) who also wants to join the crypto express.

    I'm also under 18, and at least in my country investing into crypto is really easy. I just bought some from localbitcoins with my bank account and opened a trade account on multiple exchanges like Bittrex and Bitfinex. Most sellers on Localbitcoins don't ask age and you can easily put higher age when registering in an exchange.

    Thanks, man I appreciate it! I'm from the US and at least for me I'm always finding issues when trying to do most things online when it comes to money since I'm under 18: Investing, PayPal, Shopify, and so many other things! Without carrying out my rant, I signed up for LocalBitcoin and see no verification is even required which completely solves my issues!

    My method is to just buy from a btc atm(the fees kinda suck though) and then put it directly into binance if I plan on buying other cryptos

    What's the problem? Officially, your mother will buy bitcoin but in fact it will belong to you and your family. Nothing wrong with that. I wish you good luck but be careful, the price may go down after you buy any kind of cryptocurrency.
