    If you’re that desperate buy with credit card on coinbase, send it to your binance address and go from there.

      That's the best way to go if you want to get funds quickly. Also,at least on chase, the deposits are counted as purchases so you'll at least get some points back. Just remember to do coinbase then transfer to gdax then transfer to your other exchange. GDAX will cover the BTC/ETH/LTC transfer fee

      No problem. Gemini is also available for USD to exchange. I think Kraken as well (Im assuming you're in CA as it's not available in WA). Good luck!

      Buy ether from Coinbase with credit card and then transfer them to Binance ether wallet. Then you can trade those ether with many more coins on Binance. Ether transactions are quite faster.

      Don’t transfer directly from coinbase to binance, hefty fee

      Use gdax to binance

      I used wire transfer to GDAX then bought BTC, THEN sent BTC to Binance in order to buy alt coins in Binance. Wire transfer deposits same same day in GDAX if done before deadline. Coinbase has stupid weekly limits for new customers and takes forever to deposit USD and you’ll still have to transfer that money to GDAX to get alt coins. So just start at GDAX.

      FYI the process to make the first crypto purchase was so effing painful. I see why normal people would just give up. It’s a whole lot of transferring and waiting and God help you if you were trying to purchase at a certain target price. Oh and when the systems are down because everyone and their grandma is trying Crypto right now good luck.

    Pro tip don’t buy fomo and keep a cash balance in your account for opportunistic buys.

    Use GDAX - coinbase's underlying exchange. Sign up and send your USD via same-day wire transfer which should cost $30. You can then quickly convert into ETH (faster transact times than BTC). The $30 is worth it if you're trying to make it into the market quickly!

    Best of luck trading!

      Yeah that’s also risky. If anyone on here wants to wire transfer google it first. I did that and gdax ate my money. Never showed up in my usd wallet. Lots of people have had this experience.. eventually most they get their money returned

      Are you sure you put the wire message GDAX tells you to use when you look at their wiring instructions?

    +5 RE the pain ... so use Coinbase as your USD gateway - and note there are delays - it took over 5 hours to move $1k of ETH to Binance last night. I use Kraken too, but Binance has a better selection of alt coins

    You have to go through the pain once atleast from my experience so far. I have setup my account in coinbase first and then moved ETH from
    It to Binance and have been buying other cryptos easily there

    All the portals/brokers out there are currently take a long time given the number of folks trying to get into crypto now. Only once you setup your account in Coinbase, bitfinex, kraken etc., it becomes easier from that point.
