BitQuick is one of the best ways to buy bitcoins with cash in the United States.
It charges 2% per buy but the exchange rates are generally better than LocalBitcoins.
We will show you how to make your first purchase in the tutorial below.
You will NEED a Bitcoin wallet before you can buy from BitQuick. Don't have one? Read our guide.
Go to BitQuick
You will see the home page. Then, click "Quick Buy"
Enter the amount you want to spend. You can enter in dollars or BTC, the fields will update automatically.
You should now see a list of banks with prices:
You can pick any bank, and banks with the lowest prices will show up first.
Once you picked a bank you will be required to fill in some details. This includes your email, phone number, and Bitcoin address. You can also change the amount of Bitcoin you want to receive.
Make sure you put in your phone number and press "SEND VERIFICATION". This will send a PIN code to your phone that you need to confirm.
Once you put in your details press "PLACE HOLD". This will lock in your order.
Now you will need to find a bank branch of the bank you chose in your area. Then you go into the bank, make a deposit, and save the receipt.
Go back into BitQuick and upload the receipt to the seller. This proves you made the deposit.
Bitcoins should arrive to the address you entered earlier within 3 hours!
Buy Bitcoins with Cash from Bitcoin ATMs
Bitcoin ATMs are another great way to purchase bitcoins with cash!
Think of a Bitcoin ATM as a cash to Bitcoin converter.
While you may have to physically drive or walk to the ATM, once you reach the ATM you can buy bitcoins instantly. You’ll need to be lucky enough to have a Bitcoin ATM in your area.
Our Bitcoin ATM map helps you find locations makes it easy to locate a Bitcoin ATM in your area.
You can do the following to check if there is a Bitcoin ATM near you:
1. Go to the Bitcoin ATM Map
2. Search by Location
In the search box in the top left, type in the name of your country or city and click enter.
3. Find an ATM
Once you search, you’ll be taken to the location you entered on the map. If you see map pin markers, you’re in luck! That means there are Bitcoin ATMs in your area.
4. Choose an ATM
Click on one of the map markers for more details about a specific ATM. From there, you can also click on “Read More” at the bottom for even more details.
While Bitcoin ATMs make it easy to buy bitcoin with cash, there are some downsides:
Bitcoin ATMs generally sell bitcoins at a mark-up of 5-10%.
Before you buy bitcoin from an ATM, check the ATM’s price against a Bitcoin price index like Bitcoin Average or the CoinDesk BPI.
Some ATMs may require verification, like a picture of an ID or a finger print scan (although most don't).
