I’m trying to make my first bitcoin purchase and everything I read/watch about bitcoins recommends using Coinbase at some point during the acquisition or set up process. So far, I’ve had terrible experiences with Coinbase. I tried signing up in May and around that time they apparently had issues with their authentication, ticketing systems, purchasing systems and various other features. My ticket has been sitting unanswered with them for almost 2 months now and I’ve been unable to verify a method of purchase with them.
TL;DR I’m looking for a good alternative for Coinbase for both setting up a wallet and getting an address and for funding that wallet. Do you have any recommendations?
