Cryptocurrency exchanges are businesses that allow customers to trade cryptocurrencies or digital currencies for other assets.
The first step is to register an account with the following exchange by clicking on the name.
I would have mentioned Bittrex.com but as at the time of compiling this, they have disabled new user registration. This is temporary, no one knows when they will start accepting new users. poloniex.com is also good, but I don't use them due to pass horrible experience.
Register an account with the above two websites and make sure you activate 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) using Google authentication.
Note: 2FA is a must activate. Failure to do this is a suicide mission.
