Getting connected, which Bitcoin app is the best?

There are lots of Bitcoin apps out there, but which Bitcoin app is the best? There isn't a correct answer to this question, as the best Bitcoin app for your purposes will depend on where you are, and what you want to do with the app. Many apps only offer services to a limited region, like North America, or the European Union. Other apps can be used almost anywhere.

Let's take a look at a few Bitcoin apps that have become very popular, so you can see if it might be the best Bitcoin app for you.


Coinbase offers trading services to many nations, and most of the features can be controlled from its handy app. Don't confuse Coinbase with Coinbase Wallet, which is a free crypto wallet that anyone can use. If you want to trade with the Coinbase app, you will need to see if you live in a country that supports it.


If you have Bitcoin that you want to turn into fiat currency, CoinATMRadar will help you find any Bitcoin ATMs that could be nearby. You can also buy Bitcoin with many of the ATMs that the app lists.


BitPay is working to create merchant solutions for Bitcoin users, and it allows its users to pay at retail stores or online with Bitcoin. While its network isn't as large as Visa's, it is a very interesting platform.
