Early in March I wrote about cryptocurrency walls and ones that I have tried and/or recommend. Now that we have a place to store crypto, where do we buy it?

A crypto exchange is a place to buy, sell, and trade cryptocurrencies with other cryptocurrencies, as well as using fiat money like the U.S. dollar. Most of them let you withdraw to a bank or wallet, but others don’t. Here are five of them to get started.
