Acquire First Bitcoin in 10 Minutes or Less

Coinbase has become notorious lately for taking close to a week to receive bitcoins after making payment. Not anymore! Up to 1 0.1 bitcoin can be purchased instantly and will deposited into your account in less than 10 minutes. This would have been laughable when coinbase opened and bitcoins were only $10. But today that could be close to a $500 $120 investment, pretty significant.


Part of our goal at Coinbase is to make acquiring Bitcoin as easy as possible. Since August, we’ve had an instant-buy feature available to users who have made a purchase and been with us for 30 days.

Starting today, all new Coinbase users can acquire a small amount of bitcoin (just 1) without the 30-day wait period provided they meet the rest of the required verifications (verifying their ID and adding a backup credit card).
