They want to buy steem like a normal person with their credit card. This ultimate how to buy steem guide is for you.

The Fact Is That It Takes Steem To Make Steem!

Changelly helps new members get started buying steem super fast so they can make purchases and grow their steem power a little faster than the snails pace everyone starts off with.

  • Maybe you already went to Coinbase and bought some Litecoin or Ethereum. This is the best way to use Changelly as you get better rates due to their credit care processing fees.

This Is Exactly What I Do To Buy Steem.

1st – I go to Coinbase and buy $100 worth of litecoin. (Ethereum Works Well Too!) If you do not have an account it is very easy to set one up and get started. Takes about 15 minutes. You will need a mobile phone to verify you are who you say you are…Security is super important and I appreciate that. I’m sure you do too.

2nd – Once you have your account set-up and your payment info setup you can buy Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum. Once you make your purchase you will get a notification via email that it was successful. Visit your coinbase dash board and be sure it is in your wallet. Notice in the graphic below I do not have much currency sitting here…SEE THE SEND BUTTON?

This needs to match up with what and how much you told Changelly you were going to send. Be sure to have your mobile phone handy as coinbase will send a verification code to complete the transfer.
