Chris Haefner asked 2 years ago

Hello,
I really hope you can help me with this. I am looking for an app for my Samsung S7 that is similar to Circle Financial or Coinbase. I want a wallet   I can link to a banking account, which would allow me to buy bitcoin immediately through my bank account and send it to the merchant I am buying from. I used to use Circle but they have stopped all bitcoin transactions.
I am not very familiar with buying on an exchange so this style of phone app would really be helpful. I used it regularly and that is how we keep bitcoin alive and strong. I am pretty bitter circle did this move. Thank you!

Hey Chris,
if you live in the US I’d suggest using Coinbase as it sounds like what you’re looking for. Other exchanges don’t have apps that allow you to connect a bank account directly. The thing you are describing is still one of the main sticking points of Bitcoin today – it’s too damn hard to buy.

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately coinbase doesn’t support Wyoming residents.
