How to buy Bitcoin with cash?

Why buy Bitcoin with cash in the first place? Well, it’s private and usually quick, and one of the easiest ways to get Bitcoins. If you’d like to sell Bitcoin for cash, following this guide will help you too.

Finding ways how to buy Bitcoin with cash doesn’t have to be difficult. Some options may not be available everywhere, however: for example, BitQuick and Wall of Coins are not available worldwide. LocalBitcoins, however, can be accessed from anywhere. It's possible to buy Bitcoins with cash there, via cash trade in-person or with cash deposit.

How to sell Bitcoin for cash answers itself: by listing the amount you’d like to sell on a website such as LocalBitcoins and finding someone interested in taking the coins off your hands.

Special ATMs are another option for your Bitcoin - cash exchange. However, they are not available everywhere, and they charge 5-10% fees - but this is what people are willing to pay to buy Bitcoins privately and with no verification. You can find the nearest Bitcoin ATM on websites such as coinatmradar.com.

Buying Bitcoins in person offers more anonymity, but before meeting a seller check that he or she is safe, look for reviews and feedback from previous customers.
