LibertyX operates the largest network of local stores where you can go and purchase bitcoin in-person. Our platform allows consumers to pay with cash or debit card to buy bitcoin from an ATM, cashier, or kiosk.
Compare and learn more about each store type here.
To get started, download the free LibertyX mobile app from libertyx.com/app or the Apple & Google Play App Stores. Create an account by providing your mobile phone number. You can increase your daily purchasing limit by providing additional information. Note: for some accounts, ID may be required before you can make any purchases. Once you have an account, there are three simple steps to buying bitcoin:
(1) Select "Start purchase" and paste your bitcoin wallet address (or scan its QR code)
(2) Select the store location you wish to purchase at and select "Buy bitcoin here"
(3) Your 6-digit order number will be displayed in a green box on the LibertyX app.
(4) Take that order number to the store location, or ATM, and finalize payment. When payment is confirmed, the bitcoin is sent to the wallet address you provided in Step 1.
See below for more information on each of the steps.
Step 1: Select "Start Purchase" and provide your bitcoin wallet address - Your LibertyX bitcoin purchase is instant. As a result, we need to know where to send the bitcoin beforehand. Once you select "Start purchase" after logging in to the app, you will be asked for your bitcoin address. If you do not already have a bitcoin wallet, you can download and create one for free.
