    Yes. But Exact price can be checked on blockchain.info as they are not exchangers.

    The price on blockchain.info is an average across the main exchanges same as coinmarketcap etc. As @davids355 says above each exchange will have a slightly different price.

    Whats to calculate? If you buy from localbitcoins.com you pay the price there. You buy from coinbase you pay their price. You sell on Kraken you get the price there.

    Someone please make a sticky on buying bitcoins and save this section from the flood of these questions!

    Just look around for the lowest price, if you are buying. And look for highest price if you are selling.

    If you buy it from a person like on localbitcioons be preapared to pay 30 or 40% fee sometimes over the exchange rate.

    Sort this table by Price ASC: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin/#markets

    Start checking with the first exchange in the list - if it's available in your location and if you are able to buy from that exchange. Most exchanges require documents, and those that don't will have higher rates.

    The price of bitcoin will vary by even up to 10-15% because each exchange has different rates and averages. The largest differences will be the ones through foreign markets (especially in SE Asia). And then the people who have BTC decide to hoard it and sell it for even up to 40% on top of what these exchanges offer. It's just how the business works :)
