Step 1: Create a Bitbuy Account

To get started, visit Bitbuy and click on the "Get started" button. Fill in your name, email address, and create a strong password. Make sure to verify your email by clicking the link sent to your inbox.

Step 2: Verify Your Identity

To comply with Canadian regulations, Bitbuy requires users to complete a KYC (Know Your Customer) process. You'll need to provide identification documents (e.g., driver's license or passport) and a recent utility bill or bank statement as proof of address. The verification process is usually completed automatically but can sometimes take longer depending on your case.

Step 3: Fund Your Account with an Interac e-Transfer

To fund your Bitbuy account, select "Deposit" from the dashboard. Choose Interac e-Transfer as your deposit method. Enter the amount you would like to deposit in CAD and click "Send". This will start the Interac e-Transfer Request Money feature and you will be directed to the Interac e-Transfer webpage. Here you can choose your financial institution and login to your online banking portal to accept the transfer. And that's it, once you've completed these steps you are ready to use your funds to purchase ALGO. Deposits are typically processed instantly, and you should see your CAD in your account in no time.

Step 4: Buy Algorand (ALGO)

After your account is funded, click on "Buy/Sell" at the top of the dashboard. Select Algorand as the cryptocurrency you'd like to purchase and enter the amount in CAD or ALGO. Review the transaction details, including the current exchange rate and fees. When you're ready, click "Buy Algorand” to complete the transaction.

Step 5: Store Your Algorand  

Your newly purchased Algorand will be stored in your Bitbuy wallet. Your crypto is kept secure with a 90% cold storage policy and covered by a comprehensive insurance policy. However, if you wish to have self-custody of your crypto assets, you can transfer your ALGO to a personal hardware or software wallet.
