How to Buy Altcoins

Wallets

You can buy a few altcoins easily through Coinbase. You can use Jaxx Wallet on your device to receive a BTC transfer and then ShapeShift it to other altcoins for a fee. There are other wallets that offer similar services.

Exchanges

On exchanges you can link your bank or send wire transfers of USD or other currency and then exchange it for any altcoin of your choosing. Exchanges like BitTrex and Poloniex that service the US have MANY more altcoins listed than the wallet options.

Conversions

You can convert one coin to another using Changelly or ShapeShift. If you want to convert your own coins or the person or entity you are transacting with requests or requires another coin, you can make that happen for most of the major coins. You only need the sending and receiving addresses.
