Login to your Gatehub account, go to your Wallet page, and in the upper left will be a link to Send Payment, which will bring up a module allowing you to send funds.

Verify your Rippex address is 100% correct and click Confirm. Gatehub will charge a very small fee to send the Ripple. You can see the status of your withdrawal by clicking the Recent Activity column in the far right. The transfer from Gatehub to Rippex should be a quick process.

As you're creating these accounts, you're also going to want to setup 2 Factor Authentication, which means after you login with your username and password to a site, an annoying third step will require you to provide a unique code, which will be generated from your 2 Factor Authentication app.

This is a how to guide for buying Bitcoin (BTC) from Coinbase. I'm writing this guide for those who are very new to cryptocurrency, and I will take the time to expand on each step that is happening throughout the process.

The first step is you need to convert your fiat money to digital cryptocurrency. This means you're going to take money from your bank account and use it to purchase Bitcoin. To start, create an account on Coinbase, which is one of the easiest, safest ways to buy Bitcoin. They are a legitimate company and are US based.

When signing up for these cryptocurrency financial services, it's very important to use a unique, strong password. Make sure you've stored this password in a safe place, and under no circumstance, share your password with anyone. Giving access to these accounts is essentially giving access to one of your financial accounts. It's your responsibility to protect and safeguard your login credentials.

After your profile has been created, the next step is adding a funding source, which can be any bank account or credit card. I strongly recommend only using your bank account because the fees to convert your fiat to Bitcoin will be the cheapest. Here is your complete, step by step, how to guide for buying Bitcoin (BTC) on Coinbase...
