Coinbase in Hawaii

Jackie Lynn Lucas asked 11 months ago

I am living in Hawaii and coinbase has told me that they cannot open an account for me in Hawaii.  Pretty weird huh?  I want to open an account and get started.  I am a newbie and need help.  What do you recommend?  If I purchase a nano s ledger is that all I need to open an account and get started?  Thank you!

Hi Jackie, 
The local regulation about Bitcoin in Hawaii has recently become relatively strict that is why major exchanges, like Coinbase do not offer their services for residents located in Hawaii. You can try however Localbitcoins, a peer to peer marketplace to buy Bitcoin. You can read our review about them how to use it then try to find a trader in your area.
