by Abbey

   Buying bitcoin in 2019 is much easier now than in the past and, although many people still buy from their PC, more and more people do it from their phone. I have some experience when it comes to trading and buying of crypto currencies, most especially Bitcoin and other altcoins which is very simple. This is better than mining yourself, Today i am going to teach you the easiest and most simplest way to buy bitcoins using the Coinbase App and your Smartphone.

Bitcoin also known as BTC and right now the current price of Bitcoin is on the rise, in march 2019 it was around just under $4,000 and now bitcoin is at $10,000 in July. This is a big leap in the price with about 80% gain.

Here is a step-by-step guide to buy Bitcoin from your mobile phone safely and easily.


  • You can always check your transaction history to keep track of your purchases. My best advice for you is to hold your coins in your wallet and then when it raises in its value you can sell it.
  • This is the safest method with no fear of scam. Always do your own research and don’t invest more than you can afford to lose.
  • You are limited to a certain amount per day/week to trade, depending on your account level and what level of identification that you give.

To get to level 1 you need to verify your phone number.
For level 2  most likely you need to verify some personal information.
For level 3  you probably need to upload either a photo ID , your license or  passport.

  • Always create price alerts for whatever altcoins price that you want, to monitor or buy
  • Use Google Authenticator To Secure Your Account.

How to buy Bitcoin from Coinbase:

One of the largest and most reliable exchanges in the world. It is made up of a team of more than 800 people and has recognized investors who have invested more than $ 500 million of private capital. Its interface is clean and designed especially for beginner investors. It is one of the few that allows you to buy directly through euros, dollars or other official currencies.

Disclaimer 1: what is expressed in this article should not be taken as financial advice or investment recommendation. We recommend never investing more money than you can afford to lose. Investment in cryptocurrencies is very risky.

Step 1. Initial registration:

The first thing you re going to need is either a cell phone or a computer with internet connection. Go to Coinbase  official site and perform the usual registration process with the details of name, email and password, as shown below.You can do this either on your phone browser or computer.
After filling your registration details, you will need to verify your email address.

Step 2. Verify the email

Click on the link sent to you, verify your email address and sign in to your account again. Usually, the link immediately arrives in your inbox, so you can check your spam folder if you don’t receive anything in a few minutes.

Step 3. Location and phone details

Verification is very strict, so make sure your country and state / province data is correct. It will require you have access to a smartphone. You must also enable two-factor authentication. For this, Google Authenticator is a good bet if you take your account security seriously.
Enter the 7-digit number you will receive on your mobile via SMS.
Complete your personal data.
Choose one of the 3 options to identify your identity.
When they have verified your identity, log in again with the received code. To verify your address, you must add proof.
You have 3 options to verify your address: a bank statement from the last 3 months, an utility bill such as water, gas or electricity, or bank card statement.
Once the document has been uploaded to verify your address, it may take several hours. You will receive a confirmation email.

Step 4. Application login

The above process was done through the Coinbase website. You can also register with the app if you prefer.
If you have not already done so, this is a good time to install the Coinbase application (iOS | Android).

The application provides a better user experience and it is recommended from this moment. Log in with your email address and password you registered in the previous step.
Log into the application with your email and personal password.

Step 5. Add the payment method

Before you can buy, sell or send Bitcoin, you must link your account in euros or dollars to your account. Click on “Add payment method”. You have 2 options here:

  • Buy Bitcoin with a credit card
  • Buy Bitcoin with a bank account
A purchase via bank transfer requires four or five days for initial verification. However, you can set the price of Bitcoin today if you want to buy immediately, but you can’t purchase it until the verification is complete.
Although you can buy with a credit card, it is advisable to always buy via bank transfer, since the commissions for buying with a credit card are 4% fee.

Step 6. Connecting a bank account

For this process, we connect a bank account and verify it. You may need to provide your login information again. The linking process is usually immediate with most banks once you have transferred the money. You can buy directly with credit card without waiting.

Step 7: Choose Bitcoin and check the price details

Browse among the cryptocurrencies available through the application and select Bitcoin.

Step 8: Confirm purchase

Be sure to re-check the amount you want to purchase, input the data in the relevant fields and select correct payment method. Now you can buy Bitcoin instantly using the “Confirm purchase” button

Finally, confirm your purchase.

You are already a proud owner of Bitcoin (BTC). Now you can send to make purchases online, save it as an investment or send it to friends and family as you wish.

For your transaction history, Green color means your wallet is filled with Bitcoin and Gray color means that you have either sent Bitcoin to another wallet address or sold it.

Currently, you can buy up to € 25,000 a day, however, check your limits, as they may vary depending on your country or account Level. Contact Coinbase support for more details. Also, you should’t fully rely on online crypto- exchanges alone, make sure you consider a safer storage solution, such as a hardware wallet, or cold wallet like Ledger Nano, once you have a lot of Bitcoin in your possession. Especially if your intention is to keep it as a long-term investment.


Coinbase charges approximately 0.5% for buying or selling cryptocurrencies.

However, it may be higher or lower due to market fluctuations in the price of cryptocurrencies in Coinbase Pro between the moment you quote a price and the moment the order is executed.

In addition to this 0.5%, they also charge a flat rate for small amounts:

  • If the total amount of the transaction is less than or equal to € 10, the fee is € 0.99.
  • If the total amount of the transaction is more than € 10 but less than or equal to € 25, the fee is € 1.49.
  • If the total amount of the transaction is more than € 25 but less than or equal to € 50, the fee is € 1.99.
  • If the total amount of the transaction is more than € 50 but less than or equal to € 200, the fee is € 2.99.

This is probably one of the easiest and safest ways to buy bitcoin. To buy Litecoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum Classic, the procedure is the same, you just have to change the cryptocurrency chosen in step 7.
