Buying Bitcoin In North America​

With the US Dollar being the global fiat reserve currency, there’s a lot of financial power that can be wielded by one person at the touch of the button at the Federal Reserve.

This not only has consequences for those in the US but has a massive knock-on effect for other countries in North America that adopted the US Dollar as purchasing power gets eroded in front of their eyes.

There is hope though and that comes with adopting Bitcoin as legal tender, which is what El Salvador did on September 7th 2021 as it became the first country to do so.

Now there are plenty of other countries across the continent that are looking to do the same so there is an opportunity to get a head start with building your own Bitcoin reserves, securing your wealth on the open monetary network. Find your local exchange below to buy and sell Bitcoin.

Buy bitcoin in North America

Note: 

  1. If you’re going to dive in and acquire bitcoin, we highly recommend using a bitcoin-only exchange where possible, we understand this may not always be available and purchasing from digital asset brokers may be your only option. But to avoid confusion and focus on simplicity, bitcoin-only exchanges are a great way to start.
  2. If you do not see a local exchange listed below for your country, you may have to opt for using a global exchange or decentralised exchange and P2P exchange.
  3. Be aware that some of the exchanges listed below are shitcoin casinos so take care!
