Buying Bitcoin SV

Part 1 — Create a Coinbase Account

  • Verify your email
  • Set up two factor authentication
  • Verify your identity
  • Upload a picture of your driver’s license
  • Link bank account/credit or debit card

Part 2 — Buy USDC

  1. Open your Coinbase app and click on the USD Coin (you might have to search for it but it is one of the most popular coins and is not difficult to find). **MAKE SURE YOU SELECT USDC AND NOT USDT**
  2. Once you’ve clicked on the USDC coin, click the blue Trade button.
  3. Once you’ve clicked Trade, several options will pop up. Choose Buy USDC.
  4. Enter the amount of USDC you would like to purchase and click Preview Buy. **KEEP IN MIND THAT COINBASE AND ETH TAKE A FEE WHEN YOU PURCHASE USDC**
  5. Review the details of your purchase and click Buy Now. The USDC will show in your wallet immediately, but it might be a few days before you can exchange or send it off Coinbase.
