How to buy Bitcoin and Ether in person

BTC ETH Cycle Cards

Buy your cryptocurrency at a CXI branch location and no account creation, linking payment details, uploading your ID on a website, or any other setup steps are needed. You can simply and quickly have crypto in your hand in less than 10 minutes.

  • Bring your valid US driver's license or passport and cash or debit card. 
  • Buy up to $1,000 USD worth of crypto per day. 
  • Your Bitcoin or Ether are loaded on your Cycle card and you're on your way! 

Just like currency exchange transactions, "Know Your Customer" (KYC) regulations (mandated by federal and state law) requires all cryptocurrency providers to collect certain information. For transactions up to $1,000, we must collect your name and details from either a valid US driver's license or a passport. 


Why CXI is the best place to buy Bitcoin and Ether
