How to buy Radix using Coinbase and Bitfinex (suitable for Americans and Europeans, maybe more)

This is a guide on buying Radix/XRD. First, you will buy Stellar (XLM) on Coinbase, then you will transfer it to Bitfinex and use it to buy Radix, which you can then withdraw and stake. Bookmarks are below.

A couple of notes on choosing who to stake to. The key metric is uptime, so try to select someone with 99.99% – 100%. Fee should also be considered but the difference between a 1% and a 3% fee is only about 0.2% APY. Uptime is by far the most important metric. Try to select someone below the top 10 in terms of stake.

You will need:

ID card (passport, drivers license)
Credit/Debit card
Mobile phone and number
Piece of paper and pen
