How to buy DigiByte (DGB)
How to buy DigiByte (DGB)
The process to buy DigiByte is straightforward, you will need Bitcoin, Zcash or Ethereum, if you do not have Bitcoin then you can follow our guide here: (How to buy Bitcoin)

First you will need a wallet, we use the Ledger Nano S, which you can buy from (NanotechComputers) alternatively you can use one of these official DigiByte wallets:
Windows 64 Bit Wallet
Linux 64 Bit Wallet
Mac OS X Wallet

We will buy DigiByte using shapeshift.io again, so the process to buy DigiByte is to send Bitcoin to ShapeShift.io and then exchange it for DigiByte. In our case we used Zcash to buy DigiByte, the process is exactly the same.

Select Zcash, Bitcoin or Ethereum as the currency and DigiByte as the other currency.
