Robin Hood is getting in the crypto game! You get a random stock valued between $2 and $200 and so do we, this is super exciting. Robin Hood has been one of the best experiences we’ve had with an “old school” exchange, and we’re super excited that they’re going to be bringing their talents to crypto.

CASH APP HAS BITCOIN! If you sign up through that link the show gets $5 and so do you! Stop the presses. The easiest to use money transfer application (yes it's easier than Venmo) now as a built in way to buy and sell Bitcoin. They even have a no - fee debit card you can use.

Binance Exchange Binance is the primary location for many of the coins that are not available on CoinBase. They have the best user experience, don't use the USDT as a primary trading pair, and have reasonable customer service. Give them a look.

Ledger Wallet Website This is where you buy the hardware wallet that we're always talking about on the show - we all use a Ledger Nano S.
