How to Buy Altcoins at a Coin Cloud DCM

We’ve all heard of Bitcoin, the figurehead for digital currency. In fact, it’s so popular that all other coins besides Bitcoin have been given their own title: “altcoins.” You may have heard of altcoins before without knowing that it simply means any digital currency other than Bitcoin.

The names and lingo can be daunting and discouraging for someone wanting to buy their first altcoin. But don’t worry, I’m going to tell you step-by-step how to get your own altcoin at a Coin Cloud digital currency machine.

Step 1: Enter Your Phone Number

Once you get to your closest Coin Cloud DCM, all you have to do is press “Start.” After this, accept a quick disclaimer and enter your mobile phone number. You’ll then be texted a verification code for your security, and you’ll type that code right back into the box that appears.

Step 2: Select Your Coin

After you’ve verified your phone, you’ll be given a few options: Buy Bitcoin, Sell Bitcoin, and Altcoins. You’ll be selecting “Altcoins.”

Then you’ll see a wide variety of available Altcoins, and the option to either buy or sell. Select your Altcoin of choice and tap on “Buy.” There may be minimum amounts you have to purchase, depending on which currency you pick.

Step 3: Scan Your Wallet

Display your digital wallet’s QR code (we recommend the Coin Cloud Wallet app for the fastest transaction) and hold your phone up to the camera on the machine to scan your wallet. Then you will be prompted to enter your chosen amount of cash. Just slip that cash into the designated slot on the front of the machine and tap, “I’m done.” The machine will then transfer your funds, and you’re all set!
