There are many ways to buy Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. All of which I recommend you buy and hold for the long-term.
Note: You DO NOT have to purchase a full coin.
Coinbase is one of many cryptocurrency Exchanges that allow you to buy Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. Coinbase provides you with a wallet for each of these currencies to hold your purchases.
Bitcoin is the “go-to” currency to purchase all of the other cryptocurrencies (called Altcoins “Alternative Coins“) and there are over 1300 Altcoins.
However, within Coinbase, you can purchase Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Litecoin directly with a linked debit/credit card or checking account. Or, you can purchase Litecoin or Ethereum with the Bitcoin in your Coinbase Bitcoin wallet.
Since this website is catered mainly for those new to cryptocurrency, here is a short video that will show you how to purchase Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Litecoin.
