How to buy crypto to start trading.

Buy crypto with interact or credit card and start trading

Before your start your crypto journey

There are a few things you need to know before you start buying crypto. By buying any crypto (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, etc.) you become your own bank. That means that you, and only you are in charge of the security of your assets.

When you send your cryptocurrency on an exchange, it means that you trust that the exchange will keep your crypto safe. Many exchanges have been hacked in the past. So stay with the main exchanges, the most trusted and established. (Binance, Bitfinex, Coinbase, Kraken, just to name a few).

If you don’t actively trade your crypto that is on an exchange, be safe, and take it out. You can send it to a crypto wallet that you own. (will see that later)

When you send crypto from a wallet to another, always double-check the address to make sure you are sending it to the correct address.

If you are just starting in the cryptosphere, which I guess you are, you will see a lot of people that promise you incredible guaranteed returns, All you have to do is send them some of your cryptos and they will double it… Don’t ever do that. Always stay in control. The space is full of scammers.

Buy Bitcoin and Ethereum with Interact Transfer

You can buy Bitcoin and Ethereum with an Interact transfer using SHAKEPAY (only for Canada). You will get 10$ free if you buy 100$ or more using this link.

Note that you can use the Shakepay app or website to do the following steps, but you will need the mobile app to transfer cryptocurrencies to an exchange or another wallet.

Once you are registered, select “Add Funds”
You will then see this screen:

Select the Interact e-Transfer. the next screen will look like this:

Log into your bank account and create a new Interact transfer to the email address they will provide, enter the question and answer that are also provided on that page.
Your funds will be available on Shakepay very quickly. (You can withdraw funds as easily as you sent them)

Now if you want to buy Bitcoin or Ethereum, click on Exchange. You will then see the page shown below. Simply choose how much you would like to buy, which coin you want to buy, and click on “Continue”. (You can also sell Bitcoin and Ethereum for Canadian Dollard)

If you want to send your crypto (to exchanges or other wallets), or withdraw some money from shakepay, click on “Send” in the menu.
Note that sending Crypto is currently only available on the mobile version of Shakepay but you can withdraw money on a computer. Don’t worry, their mobile app is as user-friendly as their website!

Buy Crypto with a credit card

Many exchanges offer to buy crypto with your credit card. I will only write about Binance and Coinbase (serving most countries) here but a simple google search will certainly give you more choices. We will see Binance because our signal services are made for Binance. So by buying your crypto there, you will skip the step of transferring your coin from one place to another. Coinbase is a good alternative for Canadians who want to buy crypto using their credit card.

Binance is one of the biggest (in trading volume) cryptocurrency exchanges. The platform is operating since July 2017 and it is now the go-to exchange for almost every cryptocurrency trader.

Coinbase is probably the most popular platform when it’s time to buy cryptocurrency. This company is in service since 2012 and its headquarter is in California. Coinbase currently has 5.6 million registered members.

Buy crypto on Binance using a credit Card

First of all, go register an account on Binance (use this link, you will save 10% of your trading fees).
Once logged in, select “Wallet” from the top menu, then “Buy Crypto” from the sub-menu. You should then see this page:

Fill out the form then click on Next.
Simply fill choose Credit and Debit Card, add your card and complete the transaction.

Buy crypto on Coinbase using a credit card

Create an account on Coinbase (use this link and get 10$ free when you buy 100$ or more of crypto)

Once your account is created, click on the “Trade” button, you will then see a popup like the one below. Click on “Add a Payment Method”

Once you have filled up the address form, you will be able to add your credit card information.

Now that you have added your credit card, you need to select which coin you would like to buy and how much you want. You can also make a recurring buy by hovering the clock icon in the top right corner.

That’s it, you now own some cryptocurrency!

You can now send your crypto to exchange or another wallet by clicking on “Portfolio” in the top menu. Then select the coin you would like to transfer.
Fill out the Sending form and click continue. Don’t forget to always double-check the address you are sending to.

Get USDT or Exchange to USDT

If you are able to exchange crypto that you just bought for USDT or even better if you can buy USDT directly from an exchange or service, you can then send it right away to Zignaly and start copying our signals.

The reason you absolutely need USDT to copy our signals is that we are trading Cryptocurrency Futures contracts.

No need to worry about what a Futures contract is, but if you want to learn more, there is plenty of video on Youtube about it. We trade USDT perpetual contracts that use USDT as a Quote currency. So in order to trade, you will need USDT in your wallet.

If you can’t buy USDT directly on your exchange or if it is not supported by your exchange. You will then need to buy another crypto like Bitcoin or Ethereum.

You can then send your BTC or ETH on an exchange that is supporting USDT trading (List of exchanges trading USDT).

Find the pair on the exchange BTC/USDT or ETH/USDT then sell your crypto. You will; then have USDT in your wallet.

Every exchange will have a withdrawal section, once you find it, proceed to send your USDT to Zignaly.

Send your crypto (USDT) to Zignaly

If you are ready to transfer your USDT, check out our guide that will show you everything about How to set up Zignaly signals and add USDT to your wallet. I also made a post that explains how to add funds to your Zignaly wallet step-by-step.

Send your crypto to Binance

All our followers must now be connected through Zignaly, which makes this part of the guide outdated to anyone whose goal is to copy our trades. I will still leave it here in case it could help you in any way.

Make sure you are still connected to Binance and then go to This page shows you what crypto you currently own on the Binance exchange.
To send your coin to Binance, find the coin that you own and click on “Deposit”

You should now have a page that looks like the one below. You will see an address in the right box. This is the address that you will use to send your coin to your Binance account. Make sure to select the coin you want to transfer first. This is an example for Bitcoin, but if you transfer Ethereum, select Ethereum.

That’s it, go back to Coinbase or Shakepay and enter that address in the transfer form. It can take a few minutes before your funds appear on the exchange. Don’t worry it’s normal.

You are now ready to follow our signals! See how you can set up our signals quickly and start earning here.
