How to buy crypto with credit card in 3 steps
If you want to know how to buy crypto, there are two ways: you can buy it with a credit card or with another cryptocurrency. In this guide, we'll explain how to buy cryptocurrency with a credit card in our app and store it in free StormGain crypto wallets in just a few steps.
Is there a difference between trying to buy crypto with a debit card and trying to buy crypto with a credit card?
No, there is no difference between using a debit or credit card to buy crypto. It only matters which payment provider is used to buy cryptocurrency with a card. Different payment providers have different fees for processing transactions. StormGain does not take any fees when you buy cryptocurrency with a credit card.
Do I need to pass KYC to buy crypto with a credit card?
StormGain does not ask you to undergo an identification verification procedure (known as KYC, or the Know Your Client procedure) when you buy cryptocurrency with a credit card. The payment provider may ask you to verify your identity. However, if you are already using this payment provider for other services or purposes, there shouldn't be any issues. So, you can buy crypto with a credit card without verification.
Do I have to buy a whole crypto coin?
No, there's no need to buy a whole coin. Start with as little as you want. Like most fiat currencies that can be subdivided into small amounts (like dollars and euros into cents, pesos and reais into centavos and etc.), cryptocurrencies can also be divided into smaller units. For example, Bitcoin is divided into Satoshis, which are only 1/100,000,000 of 1 BTC.
What is the minimum amount of crypto to buy with a credit card?
If you want to buy crypto with a credit card using fiat money (e.g., euros, dollars, pesos, etc.), you can't deposit less than $50.
With crypto to crypto purchases (i.e., transferring money from another crypto wallet to your crypto wallet in StormGain), the minimum deposit is $10.
