These bitcoins are then stored in a digital wallet that exists on the cloud or the user’s computer. Because bitcoins are not housed in bank accounts, brokerage, or futures accounts, they are not insured by the FDIC or SIPC.

How does one go about buying Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency? What should someone know before buying or selling a digital currency?

To buy Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, or to sell (or to avoid them altogether)? As digital currencies and the blockchain technology underpinning them move into the mainstream, it’s a natural question many individual investors and traders are surely asking themselves these days.

But learning how to buy Bitcoin is just the tip of the due diligence iceberg.

TD Ameritrade is planning to offer clients access to Cboe’s bitcoin futures contract on Monday.

The company is one of the top three retail brokerages, according to capital markets research and consulting firm Tabb.

In order to be eligible to trade the futures, clients must have a minimum balance of $25,000, according to the brokerage.

The margin requirement will also be 1½ times what the Cboe requires, TD said.

TD Ameritrade will not initially support CME’s bitcoin futures, which are set to launch this coming Sunday.

On Sunday, Chicago-based Cboe Global Markets became the first established exchange to offer bitcoin futures.

Many investors have asked me How do I buy bitcoin? or Where do I buy bitcoin? They also ask can I buy bitcoins for my IRA, 401K or Roth IRA? I didn’t have a great answer for them.

Beginning today, bitcoin can be purchased through an online brokerage! I’m going to show you how to buy bitcoin with a brokerage account. Yes you will be able to buy through online brokers like Charles Schwab, Fidelity, E*Trade or TD Ameritrade.

Yes this will work through your IRA, Roth IRA, 401K, and other self-managed accounts.

GBTC (managed by SecondMarket) holds bitcoins and is designed to mirror the performance of directly holding bitcoins.

Just a small point of clarification–TDA allows trading of GBTC in a “regular” account, but if some portion of your 401(k) is traded through a self-directed account on TDA, you might be under restrictions that prevent trading of GBTC.

In my case, I can’t trade any OTC stocks in my self-directed 401(k) account through TDA.

I assume that’s a limitation put in place by employer.

But no issues trading GBTC on my “regular” (fully taxable) TDA account.

Begging/asking for bitcoins is absolutely not allowed, no matter how badly you need the bitcoins.

I’m looking to buy BTC to hold and potentially sell, on some type of regulated exchange, preferably with my TD Ameritrade account.

I don’t have confidence that I understand everything about bitcoin and I don’t want to have to worry about security, technical mechanics or even spending bitcoin. I especially don’t want to be liable for being smarter or better informed than people trying to rip me off.

Up until this point, my previous experience with BTC dates back to the days of MTGOX, when I bought 50 BTC for $90-100 each and sold them for a little less a few months later. Bad news is I don’t still have them.

You can get GBTC on TDAmeritrade, but it’s not Bitcoin. It’s a derivative.

I really looking for some type of Fund or ETF that closely tracks BTC prices. I don’t need to actually own coins.

It’s in the works.
