Why Buy Bitcoin through a Standard Method

Bitcoin can be many things to many people

This list of services makes the process generally easier to buy and sell bitcoin.

They will require one time KYC before you can purchase.  Then it will be possible to buy bitcoin and transfer it to your wallet.

Leaving bitcoin on any of these services is like leaving money in a bank.  If their service is down for any reason, you will not have access to the bitcoin.

This is where the term, not your keys, not your bitcoin comes from and why people recommend to take self custody of bitcoin into a wallet you control, like taking cash from the bank and putting it in your wallet.
