hey guys
I was wondering how I can purchase stellar and ripple? Is it something that we purchase bitcoin and exchange? Or can we directly buy stellar and ripple?

Thanks!
I use coinbase for purchases

Here is a walk through guide on how to buy BTC from Coinbase and send it to Poloniex to buy Ripple (XRP).

You can follow similar steps to also purchase Stellar.

If you reside in Vancouver, Canada... you can use Poloniex.

If you reside in Vancouver, Washington... you cannot use Poloniex. I would recommend Binance.

Here's a basic walkthrough of what you're trying to accomplish:
  1. Buy BTC from Coinbase
  2. Send BTC from Coinbase to Poloniex/Binance
  3. Using the BTC/XRP trading pair, trade your Bitcoin (BTC) for Ripple (XRP)
  4. Using the BTC/STR trading pair, trade your Bitcoin (BTC) for Stellar Lumens (STR or KLM depending on the exchange)
Let us know if you have any questions throughout the process. Happy to help! :)
