Now that you know about wallets, you should find a place to trade them. Nowadays you can find myriad exchanges on the web. However, due to strict US regulations, the American trader only has access to a few of them. These exchanges normally charge different fees depending on the type of orders you enter and the daily volume of trades. If you are a “Taker” you will pay more, and if you are a “Maker” you will pay less or nothing or even get paid to enter orders.

The wallet doesn’t store the bitcoins themselves, it stores a collection of secret string (a string is a bunch of letters and numbers) called private keys.
Trading is hard but one might think otherwise if one spends enough time online reading trading blogs. Trading cryptocurrencies is even harder, because they are complex instruments that nobody really knows how to price yet and nobody knows if they are here to stay or will be gone in the next few months. I’ve spent more than ten years trading various financial instruments, with my last trading in various cryptocurrencies across different exchanges.
