Buying cryptocurrencies

Quick and easy guide to buying crypto.

Buying digital currencies with Invity isn't much different than making an online purchase from Amazon or using your internet banking service, except this time you get to choose both the product and how much you're willing to pay for it. Just keep your security in mind and complete the steps below.

  1. Have your debit or credit card ready. We accept cards issued by Visa and Mastercard, as well as some prepaid cards.
  2. Go to and select Buy crypto in the menu at the top of the screen.
  3. Select the fiat currency you want to spend from the If you pay drop-down menu and the cryptocurrency you want to buy from the You'll get drop-down menu.
  4. Enter the amount of money you want to spend in the Amount box. Make sure that the country you live in is selected in the Results for menu—this ensures that we'll only show you purchases you can legally make in your country. Then select Compare and buy.
  5. A safety notice will pop up, since we want the world of crypto to be secure and trustworthy for everyone. Read each statement and check the box to confirm that you understand each safety tip. Then select I understand and want to purchase crypto!
  6. Our algorithm will display the estimated amount of cryptocurrency you'll be able to receive at the end of your exchange. The provider able to complete the purchase is listed to the right of each offer. Note that the rates offered may differ slightly depending on the provider or currency, though each offer already includes all the fees associated with the transaction. Compare the details of each offer carefully, but remember to act quickly, since offers refresh every 30 seconds.
  7. Choose the offer you want to take, then select Get this deal.
  8. Enter the receiving address generated by your cryptocurrency wallet. This is where your cryptocurrency will go once your purchase is complete. Always carefully verify that the address is correct—transactions can't be undone if they're sent to the wrong address. We recommend using the copy and paste function instead of manually typing each character; this reduces the risk of errors. Once you've checked the address, select Next step. If you change your mind about this offer, select I want a different offer to go back.
  9. You'll be shown a summary of your transaction, allowing you to review all the details one last time before you purchase. If everything is correct, select I'm sure I want this deal! If you want to change anything, select Double-check my details to go back.
  10. A secure payment page belonging to the payment provider you chose (Simplex or BTCDirect) will open in a new tab; don't close the Invity tab! Carefully follow the provider's instructions and enter the information they request.
  11. The boxes in the Invity tab will be checked as each step is completed, so you can easily follow along. Once the All done! box is checked, your purchase is complete. Access your wallet to make sure that you see the correct amount of the type of crypto you wanted to end up with.

And there you have it—you've purchased some cryptocurrency! Now that you're familiar with the buy process, you're ready to explore Exchange crypto; using these two features, you can get nearly any digital currency out there. Or you can read our blog to plan your next moves. Have fun!
At the moment Invity supports buying Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ether (ETH), Ripple XRP (XRP), Stellar (XLM), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Binance Coin (BNB). These currencies represent the largest userbases, the largest market capitalizations, and a healthy cross section of the different protocols used in the crytpo world—in short, they're the "main" digital currencies. If, however, you want access to a wider variety of altcoins, many more are available through our Exchange crypto feature!
Purchases can be made using most Visa and Mastercard debit or credit cards, bank transfers, or even some viritual or prepaid cards. Invity's partners currently accept payments in most of the world's major currencies—including USD, EUR, CAD, and JPY—as well as many others you may not expect. Check out the full list.
Simplex is one of Invity's partners for buying crypto using a debit or credit card. We like their company because they share our philosophy of bringing the crypto industry into the mainstream, and we like their service because its AI-backed technology is highly secure and easy to use. Visit Simplex to learn more about them.
BTC Direct will soon be one of Invity's buying and selling partners. Once their service is integrated in the summer of 2020, they'll allow you to buy crypto with euros using your debit or credit card or any of a number of local payment options then cash your crypto out whenever you want. We like that they have a low minimum purchase amount of EUR 30 and that their rates and fees differ depending on the amount of crypto you're buying and the method you're using to purchase it—allowing you to fine-tune your choices to get the best rate. Visit BTCDirect to learn more about them.
You'll want to get this sorted out straight away, since you'll need a wallet to buy crypto or make exchanges. Just as importantly, the wallet—more specifically, the type of wallet you choose—affects how well you can keep your funds safe. We'll have a thorough explainer very soon, but in the meantime here's a good overview of what you need to keep in mind when selecting a cryptocurrency wallet. Also keep in mind that some wallets may not support brand-new or highly obscure coins, so check closely that your wallet can handle the crypto you want to use.

For our money, hardware wallets are the safest and most durable way to keep your crypto secure. The Trezor Model T is widely regarded as the industry leader in hardware wallets, and the Ledger Nano X is also a good choice. (Full disclosure: Before offering its services online, Invity's comparison tool was the exclusive partner for buying and exchanging within the Trezor wallet.) If you're still considering making an investment in a hardware wallet, the Blockstream Green and the BlueWallet are both trustworthy, easy-to-use hot wallet choices.
A wallet address is the exact destination to which people send your bitcoin or altcoin. You can think of it like an email address, and like an email address the information must be exact. In this case, many wallet addresses are also case sensitive, so it's a good idea to always use the copy/paste function when dealing with addresses. However, unlike an email address, a different wallet address should be used to receive each and every new transaction. This is partially for privacy and security reasons, but it also gets to how cryptocurrency systems work—as progressive and changing systems rather than fixed networks. This also means that there is no "return address"—just because you can see the address that sent you your crypto doesn't mean that same address can receive crytpto (if, for example, they sent you too much money). So to keep your funds safe, always provide a new address when you're ready to receive crypto and ask for a new address when you're ready to send crypto!

But don't worry: your addresses are linked to your wallet and making a new address doesn't add any more work for you. Most reputable wallets—whether online, an app, or hardware wallet—generate a new address whenever you're performing a transaction, and most will simply prompt you to do so. However, each wallet is unique, so investigate yours thoroughly to make sure you know how to use this function!
Cryptocurrencies are digital representations of value, and they can function as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, or a store of value. These features are what make digital currencies such useful and flexible (and potentially profitable) tools, but they also make them a bit more complicated and volatile. So it's important to keep some things in mind when entering the world of crypto.

First, values can shift in relation to one another and over time. This means that, like stocks, virtual currencies are subject to market forces—think supply and demand—so a currency that is high in value one day may lose some or even all of that value the next. Even in the short history of crypto, there have been numerous major price fluctuations, flash crashes, and market manipulations, among other things, and it may not always be possible to liquidate, or get out of the market. Furthermore, competition on the market is worldwide, making it essential to have knowledge of these markets and events that may affect them. Experience in trading in general and in trading crypto specifically is also highly recommended.

Second, cryptocurrencies are decentralized and not backed by governments or central banks. In other words, while digital currencies can often be spent like fiat currencies (like the US dollar) and exchanged for these same fiat currencies, digital currencies do not have the same status, protections, controls, or regulations. This means, for example, that if the Bitcoin market gets a little out of control and loses half its value in a few moments, there is no authority that will put on the brakes—it's up to the traders themselves to right the market. Furthermore, if you fall victim to a scam or theft, there's usually very little anyone can do to compensate you. This is why you'll see frequent reminders throughout prompting you to be mindful of your security when dealing with crypto. And as always when it comes to money—if something feels fishy, it probably is.

Because of these risks, it's probably not a good idea to start trading crypto using funds taken from retirement savings, loans, emergency funds, or other necessary sources of funds. Instead, transact only with funds that you could survive losing. This is also why we recommend making crypto only one part of a diverse financial portfolio, particularly through our Invest in crypto savings plan.

But this shouldn't scare you off—many thousands of people around the globe participate in this alternative finance ecosystem, and so many thousands of people have an interest in keeping it going securely and with relatively few major shocks. What's more, many national governments have taken notice of the increasing role of digital currencies in the world's economy and have begun to issue advice, and in some places regulations, to help users who want to get involved in crypto. For just some of the advice issued by US authorities, read up on the Consumer Financial Protection Board's Consumer Advisory, the Securities and Exchange Commission's Investor Alert, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's Customer Advisory, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority's Investor Alert. You should also stay tuned to Invity's blog for information without the jargon regarding crypto safety, crypto markets, tax implications, and other topics you need to know to make the best out of your crypto investments. After all, you're in good hands.
