As an open source project, Bitcoin has no gatekeepers. To join, simply download a free Bitcoin wallet and run it. You can see some suggestions for good wallets in our Get a Wallet section up top. Once you’re running the Bitcoin software, you can consider yourself as “joined up.” You can also buy some Bitcoins to take a stake in the project’s success. That might make the “joining up” process feel more official. See our Buy & Trade section for more on purchasing Bitcoin.
I would also recommend that you check out our Bitcoin Newbie section to get a good overview of how Bitcoin works. The Bitcoin Beginner’s Course is especially helpful.
