What is Bitcoin? 

  • Bitcoin is an internet currency designed to keep your identity and your funds secure. 
  • You can use Bitcoin as an investment, to purchase items, or pay for services. 
  • Bitcoin transactions eliminate the “middle man” so your Bitcoin goes directly from you to the receiving end without having to use a financial institution, such as a bank. This way, transactions are untraceable, keeping your personal information anonymous and safe. 

Why should I use Bitcoin?

  • Send and receive Bitcoin anywhere in the world, at any time. 
  • There is no fee to receive Bitcoin into your wallet. When you spend Bitcoin from your wallet, you are in control of how high or low of a fee you want to pay, ultimately resulting in the speed of the transaction being finalized. The fee you pay is not relative to the amount of Bitcoin you send. 
  • Bitcoin offers incredibly strong protection against identity theft, in addition to your backup and encryption.

The easiest, user-friendly way to purchase and send Bitcoin is via Coinbase. Here is how:

1.     Sign Up: 

  • Go to Coinbase.com and click “Sign Up” in the top right corner. 

  • From there, you will be prompted to fill out your name, email address, choose a password, where you live, and to check the boxes that state you are not a robot, and you are 18 years years of age or older.

  • Next, it will ask you to “verify your email”. Just go to your email inbox, click the email from Coinbase, and click the link provided in the email to then verify your email for your Coinbase account.

  • After you verify your email, you will automatically be sent to a page to link your phone. Just enter your country and your phone number and click “Next. 

  • You’ll receive a text with a code in it. Enter the code, and then click “Verify Phone Number”.  After your phone is verified, you will then have access to your account. 

2.    Complete profile: 

  • Verify your identity. You can do so by first taking clear photos of your government issued ID. Scroll down to the column on the left side of the home page of Coinbase where it says “Complete Your Account”. Click on “Verify your identity”. From here, choose either Driver’s License or Photo ID, then Webcam or file upload. Once you send the photos, Coinbase will verify your identity, and you will receive an email. 

  • Click on “Add a payment method”. From here you can either link your bank account or debit card. The fastest and easiest way to make small transactions on Coinbase is by using your Credit/Debit card. 

3.    Buy Bitcoin on Coinbase:

  • Click on the “Buy/Sell” tab at the top of the page. Choose your payment method (either your bank account or credit/debit card as mentioned before), the amount of Bitcoin you want to purchase, and then click “Buy Bitcoin”. After the transaction is verified, you will officially have Bitcoin to spend on our website!

4.    Buy products from the website

  • Choose which product you wish to purchase. For example, if you choose the “Staff Picked Pack v2 40 Total Tablets for $45”, click the blue “Buy Now” button:
  • From there, an order form will appear. Fill out your name, email address, shipping address (street address, city, state, zip code, country), and a coupon code if you have one.

  • Click the green “Pay Now” button. You will be redirected to a page titled “Order Created”, with directions. You will need to check your email for payment details.

  • The email will contain a Bitcoin amount you will need to send, and long string of numbers/letters called a wallet address that you need to send the Bitcoin to, via Coinbase.

  • Go back to Coinbase.com, click on the “Accounts” tab at the top of the page. From there, you will see your “BTC Wallet” containing the Bitcoin you purchased earlier. Click the “Send” button, and enter the amount needed for the BTC Nootropics order, plus transaction fees. Coinbase will help you figure out the amount needed to make the transaction.

  • Copy the wallet address from your email, paste it to the place where receiver’s address goes, and click send! 

  • Once we receive your payment, the transaction will be complete!
