To begin with, let us recall that bitcoins are a decentralized cryptocurrency, no state has any power over it. This is its main advantage. Complete anonymity and transparency have made Bitcoin an attractive buying tool for investment and income.
The Bitcoin cryptocurrency appeared in 2009, the rate during this time grew from a few cents to $ 7,000 for one BTC (November 2017). The virtual coin is very popular today and is forecast to rise to $ 50,000 in value over the coming years! If you want to invest money, then buying bitcoins in order to earn money is a global investment trend.
Next, we will consider each of the above options for purchasing bitcoins, they are all available to customers from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and other countries. It is not difficult to acquire cryptocurrency.
To start working with any cryptocurrency, in particular with bitcoin, you need to create a wallet to store them and get an address. On cryptocurrency exchanges, the wallet is received immediately after registration.
How to create a bitcoin wallet?
To store bitcoins, you can download special wallet programs (the most popular and reliable Bitcoin Core and Electrum); use special online services; create an account on the cryptocurrency exchange; purchase hardware wallets.
Of the available methods, we use the Exmo exchange and the Electrum wallet. They are quite reliable and take a few minutes to install or register. And one more plus – you don’t need to download the blockchain to your computer. Let’s describe each method:
- The easiest way: open an account on a cryptocurrency exchange – a platform where you can trade, buy and sell cryptocurrency. Download the entire blockchain to a computer (more than 150 GB of information is not required). A wallet for storing coins is created immediately, you just need to register, indicate a real email account, come up with a login and a strong password.
The most popular in the CIS is the EXMO crypto exchange. The main advantage is that it works with fiat (regular) currencies. You can replenish the balance in rubles, hryvnia, dollars, euros, zlotys. On the Exmo exchange, you can buy cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Zec, Waves, Ripple, Litecoin, Monero, Tether, Dash and other most popular coins.
You can see the address of your wallet on the exchange in order to receive bitcoins on it in the “Wallet” section – by clicking “Add” and “Create” in the line opposite BTC.
- You can download the client software for Bitcoin cryptocurrency on the official website: bitcoin.org. You need to read carefully the description for each, since some programs for storing bitcoins download the entire blockchain network and take up a lot of space on your computer (more than 140 GB). This requires constant synchronization with the server and Internet access.
Today one of the most popular wallets is Bitcoin Core. You can download it on the official website at the link: Bitcoin Core. You need to select an operating system and click “Download”. Its weight with transaction blocks (blockchain) is more than 150 GB, so we recommend freeing up space on your computer. The synchronization process with the network will take several hours or days. To see the created bitcoin wallet address, which will be specified during the purchase, you need to go to the “File” – “Addresses to receive” item; to create a new one – click “Get” or “New”.
In the “File” menu, be sure to create a backup copy of the Bitcoin Core wallet for recovery or transfer to another computer (we recommend that you do this after each operation with a new address), saving a file called wallet.dat in a safe place or writing to a USB flash drive.
- Another popular and reliable bitcoin wallet is the Electrum program. This is a “lightweight” wallet, since you do not need to download the entire blockchain and you can work right after installation. To download, go to the developer’s site: electrum.org. Select the “Download” section, your operating system and version. The size of the installation file for Windows (Standalone Executable) is about 18 MB. Portable version is a portable Electrum program for Windows, without installation and binding to a specific computer, it can be copied to a USB flash drive and run from it.
After downloading to your computer, you need to run the installation file electrum.exe. During the installation process, you will need to select the type of wallet: “Standard Wallet”; then Creative New Seed (create a seed – a new phrase to restore Electrum); a 12-word phrase (seed) will appear in a new window – they must be saved and recorded in a safe place. Then click “Next” and re-insert.
Next, come up with a password:
This completes the installation, it is possible to enter the wallet. In “Tools” you can select the Russian language, commission, etc. You can use it right away, since the synchronization takes place with the servers online (only the Internet is needed).
The address for receiving bitcoins is in the “Receive” section. In the “Send” tab, the cryptocurrency can be sent to the address of another wallet, specifying the commission, the recipient’s address and the amount.
A complete list of all available addresses is in the “View” – “Addresses” tab (20 addresses to receive “Receive” and 6 for “Change” to receive change).
To restore the Electrum wallet you need a seed, you can see it in the “Wallet” – “Seed” menu. You can see and save the private keys for each address, if transferred to another wallet (not Electrum), in the section “Wallet” – “Private Key” – “Export” (opposite each address – its own private key).
Electrum is a very simple yet secure Bitcoin wallet program.
- The third way: registering a wallet in online services, one of the most popular is blockchain.info. This is the easiest option, registration takes about 5 minutes. We advise you to write down all passwords so as not to forget. After entering the wallet, you can find the address for receiving bitcoins, to which you can send the purchased cryptocurrency. The blockchain.info wallet can be accessed from any device: phone, tablet, computer. Apart from bitcoins (BTC), you can store Ethereum (ETH) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

How to buy BTC with WebMoney and Advcash?
You can buy bitcoin cryptocurrency using payment systems. To do this, you must first replenish their balance, and then exchange or transfer to the wallet address for receipt. Let’s consider this process using the example of AdvCash and WebMoney payment systems.
- Buy cryptocurrency bitcoin, ethereum through Advacash. To get started, go through a simple registration on the advcash.com website, thereby opening a wallet. Next, deposit money by going to “Account replenishment” and choosing the desired option: bank cards (MasterCard, Visa, Mir and others) and bank transfers (Swift and Sepa) are accepted, but after account verification; electronic money (Yandex, Perfect Money, Payeer and others); cryptocurrency exchange codes.
If there is no convenient way, then you can use online exchangers, for example Prostocash, Xchange, 60cek, where the choice of payment methods is wider and you can deposit money without having to go through verification. You just need to choose the direction of the exchange. For example, transfer money from a Sberbank card or any other bank to AdvCash.
After receipt of funds, you need to go to the “Transfer of funds” item, select “To e-currency”:
Fill out the transfer form: choose an account (dollar, ruble, euro, hryvnia, etc.); indicate the amount; recipient’s electronic currency – “Bitcoin” (you can also choose another cryptocurrency – ethereum or bitcoincash). Enter your bitcoin wallet address, the line “Amount to be credited” shows how many bitcoins will be received (the value may change due to rate fluctuations).
In this way, on the advcash.com website, you can easily buy BTC for rubles, dollars, euros, etc.
- In 2013, WebMoney got the opportunity to create a Bitcoin wallet – WMX. And it can be replenished by making an exchange with WMR (Russian ruble), WMZ (US dollar) and other currencies. The automatic exchange rate is very unprofitable and differs from the market rate by 10–20%.
