6. How to Get Cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency doesn’t work like real cash – obvious reasons being that it’s digital. So how do you go about acquiring cryptocurrency of your own? Simply put, you buy it. Think of cryptocurrency the same way you would think of stocks: if you want to be a shareholder/stockowner in a company, you buy stocks (exchanging money for a valuable asset). If you want to own cryptocurrency, you buy the currency (e.g. bitcoin) with your money. If you wanted to take your cryptocurrency acquisition to the next level, you could also mine for it, but that’s way more involved and not for beginners.
