What is the Best Way to Buy BTC?

By Buzzbeeg | The Crypto Cave | 20 Aug 2020

If you are in the USA I highly suggest Coinbase or Gemini but if you live outside the USA you should consider Okex.


Okex has a lot of advantages for buying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. It is a well-established exchange that has been around since 2017, which has a large community that provides plenty of liquidity for trading various cryptocurrencies. It is known for its security and ease of use. Most of all it is a great international platform because it is available in many different countries.


One thing that matters a lot is having an exchange that is in your native language. Fortunately, Okex is in a wide variety of languages here is a brief list of them:

  • English
  • Mandarin Chinese
  • Russian
  • Indonesian
  • Spanish
  • French
  • and a lot more!

Of course, Okex also features a large number of fiat currencies that you can buy cryptocurrency with. After all, what is the point of being available in numerous languages if you’re not available in numerous currencies? Some of these currencies include:

  • US Dollars
  • Japanese Yen
  • Russian Rubles
  • Indin Rupee
  • Philippine Peso
  • and a lot more!

Already you can see why I recommend Okex for my international friends. It’s available to most countries!

Other Benefits

There are many other benefits to buying cryptocurrency with Okex one of them is the variety of cryptocurrencies you can purchase. When people think about buying crypto for the first time they naturally think about Bitcoin. But experienced crypto users know the importance of buying other cryptos using fiat. There are a lot of countries that consider every time you trade crypto for another crypto a taxable event. Therefore, if you only need to do one step instead of 2 steps you will be taxed less. That is why going direct from fiat to crypto is so useful.

Okex features several other cryptos that you can buy for fiat including:

  • Bitcoin
  • Ethereum
  • OkCoin
  • XRP
  • USDTether
  • Litecoin
  • and More!

The final thing I want to mention is that Okex accepts credit/debit cards for buying crypto. There are a lot of exchanges that require you to wire money to their site (often taking 3–5 business days) and don’t have a credit card option. Okex accepts both Visa and Mastercard which makes the experience of buying crypto just a little bit easier.
