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.
