there is a misconception about bitcoin, you dont have to buy a full coin. you can buy $10 or $100 worth etc. you would get that fraction of a bitcoin. so if you bought $40 worth of bitcoin you would have .01 of a full coin.

i recommend coinbase. they are a solid usa based insured company.

or you can buy it through your stock brokerage
GBTC is the ticker. each share represents 1/10th of a full bitcoin. each share is actually backed by real physical bitcoin held in a trust. so its not like gold or silver etfs that can have as many shares as they want.
but be aware there is a hefty premium built into the price. last time i checked each share was around $600. but you can get exposure to bitcoin this way without the hassles.

its not too late to get in. 2nd best time to get in is today.
