Purchasing DigiByte is easy to do through the Coinbase and Bittrex exchanges.
After you have purchased DigiByte, it can be stored on the exchange itself, but for larger purchases we recommend storing coins on your own personal offline wallet.
Below are the 5 easy steps to buy DigiByte coins. The steps include 1) Signing up to Coinbase, 2) Signing up to Bittrex, 3) Transferring Bitcoin to Bittrex, 4) Purchasing DigiByte, and 5) Securely storing your DigiByte coins.
STEP 1: SIGN UP TO COINBASE
The first step is to setup a Coinbase account so you can convert USD into BTC. Then you need to transfer your BTC to the Bittrex exchange where DigiByte can be purchased.
Once the BTC is in your Bittrex account, you will be able to buy DigiByte

Next you need to signup to Bittrex, the exchange which Digibyte can be purchased on. Once Bitcoin is transferred from your Coinbase account to the Bittrex exchange, you are ready to buy DigiByte.
STEP 3: TRANSFER BITCOIN TO YOUR BITTREX ACCOUNT
To transfer Bitcoin into your Bittrex account, log into Bittrex and click on “Wallets” on the top right side of the screen.
Scroll down the list of coins until you find Bitcoin (BTC) and click the “+” symbol to deposit money.
Copy the address.
Now go back to Coinbase > click Accounts > select BTC Wallet > click Send > select the amount you want to transfer to Bittrex > paste the unique address your previously copied from your Bittrex account and click Continue.
STEP 4: PURCHASE DIGIBYTE COINS
Now that you have BTC in your Bittrex account, it's time to buy DigiByte.
In Bittrex, insert “DGB” in the search field and select “BTC-DGB“(you have to be logged in).
Next, insert the amount of DigiByte you would like to purchase and click “+ Buy Digibyte.”
Congrats, you now own DigiByte!
STEP 5: STORE ON A SECURE WALLET
You can keep your DigiByte coins on Bittrex, but a wallet is recommended for larger purchases.
You can find a list of desktop wallets that support DigiByte on the DigiByte official wallet page.
