This YouTube video by Brian Jung explains what Bitcoin is, and how to buy it on Coinbase. Coinbase is one of the oldest cryptocurrency exchanges, and it’s a good starting place for beginners. It has a Pro version for making advanced trades, when one has experience and is ready to upgrade. All versions can link to your bank account or credit card for simple purchases.

Jung then instructs us how to use a cold storage cryptocurrency wallet. This is to safeguard your digital assets against hackers; a common saying in the business is, “Not your keys, not your crypto.” I have posted a link to Jung’s video page so you can take advantage of his resources. I also posted a link to ITrust Capital, a company where you can start a retirement plan with cryptocurrency and precious metals.
