Is it possible to buy bitcoin as a gift for someone?

Mon Nov 26, 2018 3:02 pm

My boyfriend expressed interest in buying some bitcoins, and I want to get him some for his birthday, but I've heard its a complicated process. Wondering if anyone could simplify it for me, or explain if its possible to buy them as a gift or if the person whom they are going to must buy them directly. Thanks [spam link removed by NB^ - 11.29.2018]

Hi,

You should be able to purchase BCH (BCH purchases might be temporarily unavailable) or BTC at buy.bitcoin.com

You can purchase Bitcoin Cash (BCH) at any of the exchanges listed at bitcoincash.org/#exchanges

You can purchase Bitcoin Core (BTC) at any of the exchanges listed at bitcoin.com/buy-bitcoin

As for a gift you could print out a paper wallet and send BCH or BCT to the address on that wallet. You could then give the paper wallet as a gift! Please see: https://paperwallet.bitcoin.com/

A great place to get started with bitcoin is bitcoin.com/getting-started

It would be a great gift.
But it's better to buy it now with a low price and make a gift in a half a year, when the price will be higher.
The person you will make a gift will be happy.
It's digital gold.

First, you must realize that bitcoin not physical money, so you can give it as a gift. In my opinion, this is not a good idea because the price of bitcoin is not stable. It is the worst gift idea I have heard of.

Now you have a good way,We have made a function to send Bitcoin greeting cards. We can send a small amount of Bitcoin to our friends for the experience while sending greetings through e-cards. The characteristics of Bitcoin can make the blessing more meaningful.

It is possible even in several ways. You can create a paper wallet if the receiver doesn’t have any, buy bitcoin on the exchange and send to the wallet. The second way is easier and is not so much time-consuming. You can use a site like bitgift that sends you a physical card and a voucher number to redeem the bitcoins. Whatever way you choose, present bitcoin as a gift is not the best idea. Bitcoin is volatile, and at the time you will give a gift it could be worth a lot less, but it could be the other way round as well.
